Not dead set on any thing.
Like Bobby said just like sleeping in our own bed at night.
We didn't want to get a long one, cause we will mostly use it on weekends to the beach in Port Aransas and maybe North in the summer.
I get what you are saying about more room, but we consider ourselves "low maintenance" travellers, we don't require a lot of frills, but are older now and need a little more comfort than the pick up camper we had, and before that a two man tent.
Now we are looking at travel trailers, if we live long enough we might move up to a class A.

Check them out, they use a totally different space frame and bonded panel construction, more like an aircraft than the typical aluminum storage shed on a flexy ladder frame travel trailer.
Checked out their web site and they look like something we could have used when we were younger.
Very compact, but with all the basic's.
Thanks for the suggestion any way.

All of the major manufacturers will have smaller trailers.

Jayco makes very nice trailers, and all the way down to 16' models.
http://www.jayco.com/products/travel...ght-slx/145rb/

The 19RD was my absolute favorite weekend trailer. It comes in at 23' but is very well equipped.

Keystone has this model at 18', with a murphy bed.
http://www.keystonerv.com/share?bran...RT&model=151ML

And Winnebago has come out with some VERY nice small trailers. Check out the Winne Drops, and the Mini Winne's.

I call BS on Casitas smelling musty...I've had mine for five years...It stays at camp in the East Texas woods all year except for two months each year when I take it to Florida's east coast (1000miles)...NEVER any smell, period. Love it...it has everything you could want and then some.

The carpet, over 3/8th inch closed cell foam backing, covers all the walls and ceiling...It's great...Quiet, warm when it's cold out, cool when it's hot...one of the best features it has over Scamps.

I bought a 10 year old casita. The fiberglass body was solid when I sold it. Any smells inside rent a professional air purifier that companies use to clear smoke smell from fires. Only bad thing about casitas is the single axle. Tire blowouts atr very common and you really need to stay on top of tire care and changeout every 3 years. Wheel bearings repack stay on top of too

We now have class A, and have had bp tt's, we keep running in them while the are plugged in, also in 2 cabins we have,(we live on the coast) it helps keep out moisture and keeps down mold and mildew. They are worth the money.

1. Tire blowouts are not common on Casitas or any trailer for that matter if the right tires are used....The problem is owners using the wrong "Load Range" tires. When I got my Casita it had 14" Goodyear Marathon radial "Trailer" tires on it, load range "C"...With the weight of the trailer being about 2700# those tires were at the top end of their load range. First thing I did was replace those 14" wheels and tires with 15" wheels and Goodyear Wrangler LIGHT TRUCK tires LOAD RANGE "D". They've been on the trailer for five years now and have made 5 1000 mile round trips to Florida from Livingston towing at 70 mph with no problems and very little wear.

That is the same basic setup I have used on a number of small trailers in over 40 years of dragging them all over the place. Had a few flats from road junk but never a blowout.

For my money they can keep their radial "trailer" tires.
