I have six Trilliums parked in my yard.

That is the plan. Two down, one needs nothing. One is in fair shape. Two are basket cases. Humpty Dumpty is a cracked egg. The plan is to fix up and sell the two basket cases. The others belong to my kids, kinda.

When you say "winter camp season," do you mean "get out of Dodge and head for Arizona" winter camping or do you mean "load up the snow shoes and skis and head for the mountains to play" winter camping?

The latter will present some challenges in the smallest, lightest fiberglass trailers, which aren't really designed for 4-season use. Not that it can't be done, but for a reality check you might want to have a look at this blog:

(The blogger is a member here, "Ming," and, coincidentally, has a CX-5, too.)

You nailed it on the first part Jon. We have enough beautiful winter playgrounds, steps from our front door. I like to access them on day use only basis :-). And then return for a hot shower and comfy bed.

This Canadian girl was mistakenly born in a cold northern climate. The trailer is planned for early spring and late fall BC trips (after and before snow) and long distance winter trips south--- usually to high desert locales. No (deep) snow!

Then you absolutely could not do better than a small egg! We live in a colder, high altitude corner of AZ, and we like to get out of Dodge, too. We were down in the Phoenix area a few weeks ago in the Scamp. It was 80 degrees and beautiful! Best wishes in finding just the right trailer!
