I joined the Forum a a couple of weeks ago but haven't had time to introduce myself yet.

I'm still in the "looking" stage for a small trailer and this place has been a wealth of information. There's some great people on here, too.

I'm kind of semi-retired and trying hard to be completely retired. My work keeps taking me farther and farther from home all the time and a small self contained trailer would really save on motel bills. My work takes me all up and down the west slope of the Sierra Nevada and sometimes it's even a long drive to a motel.

I'll be using my V-6 Tacoma to tow with and from what I understand it will handle a small trailer with no problem.

Now I just have to be faster than all the other people every time I see one advertised. They sure don't stay on the market very long.

Thanks again to everybody here for all the good information. Bob

Hi Bob, welcome to FiberglassRV. We're glad you're here. And , you better be quick when you see something advertised. The secret is to educate yourself, decide what you absolutely must have versus those "nice" to have, know your budget.... then pounce

Best of luck on your egg hunt!

Yes Bob, fiberglass are great little campers. But like Donna says, they do go quickly if in good condition. Welcome to the group

Thanks for the advice. I've looked at two so far. One was a total junker and the other was a scam.

We're snowed out of the woods right now and I'm using the time to look. I'd rather take my time and get exactly what I want. If it's going to be my home away from home I'd like it to be just that.

Thanks again for the help. Bob
