Price and weight were my two main factors. I'm glad I got one ('77 13' Trillium) When I grow up and get a better tow vehicle, I might move up to a 15 footer. My wife and I boondock a lot so we don't want anything too big. Smaller trailers fit in more places!

Yeah there are some real good points about not going too big... harder to get it into some places. I love my 15' ParkLiner!

on the not going to big comments... i agree.
Here in the Pacific Northwest many of the sites Cari & i visit state max trailer length at 18 feet. And that is really not an exaggerated request! Some of the spots we put our van (18ft) + parkliner (15ft) leaves little wiggle room front to rear.

Welcome Bill. I know what you mean. I bought three in one month. A U-haul-16, a scamp-16 and then the Scamp 19. We wanted the 19 all along but just couldn't find one on the east coast. Bought the U-haul and then found the Scamp-16. A few weeks later the 19 showed up in a classified section. Best thing about it was I had no problem reselling the other two. Just wish I'd found the 19 first. Alot of stress for my wife that month. Every time I called her and said "guess what"? She would say Oh, God no. LOL Good luck

We don't have OCD, we have OECD (Obsessive Egg Compulsive Disorder).
And it ain't a bad disease to have!!

IMHO coming from the marine world fiberglass is the way to go. Not the same concerns as stick built units have with rot.

Six actually. But Randy Bishop has me beat. He now has seven Trilliums, and a hand full of other brands.

How did everyone decide which one was "the one"?
Hi: Chillywilly... Fiberglass flu has no known cure!!! It can be controlled with copious amounts of fluids and plenty of restful campfires. In time you will notice some respite from the symptoms... but then a recurring bout of twofootitis may set in.

Moderators note: A long series of posts, focused entirely on the Parkliner company, was split from this thread to form Leaning Towards a Parkliner - Advice Anyone?

That new thread is located in General Chat, and is closed.

The current thread, about "egg obsession," has been reopened.
