There's a bit of a story it.

Started looking at truck campers. But the amount of money they want 32 square feet of living space was hard to swallow. I would have also needed to upgrade the truck to a 3/4 or one tonn, and wow are the dealers very proud of the hd trucks.
estimated cost $25 to 30 thousand

Started looking at used travel trailers <25` almost impossible to find here(northern Ontario), and I'm 6'4" tall so anything made before 2006 didn't seem to have the interior height I require.

Then started looking at these new fiberglass and aluminum walled lightweight tt, again into big money and little interior height. Estimated cost $20,000

Then I found this "little" trailmaster trailer for $13,500 plus tax. I could stand up in it, and at 4100lbs light enough I could use my chevy half tonn to pull it around. Also two year warranty. Hope to get many goods years out of it. Sadly I covered it today for the winter storage.

Actual Cost Trailer $15500
Weight distribution hitch $320
Brake controller & large tranny cooler $500
