Welcome, Chip and Sarah!
One useful resource on this forum as your consider trailers and shop is the Trailer Weights in the Real World database
. It has actual scaled weights of various makes and models (axle, tongue, and total weight). With a couple of exceptions, they are loaded for camping. It may help you properly match a trailer with your intended tow vehicle. Post #297 links to a spreadsheet of the data than can be filtered by length, make, model, etc., as well as calculate averages.
Since you can't browse molded fiberglass trailers at a dealer (most new ones are sold
factory direct, and most used ones change hands between private parties), a fiberglass egg rally
is one way to browse a bunch at once. Some even have a scheduled time for "open house" tours. Here's a link to the 2017 Rally Map
. Best to contact the event coordinator for advice on scheduling a visit.
I figure my 13' Scamp
is the land equivalent of that other Scamp
