Can anyone recommend travel trailers that are less than 8 feet wide? We have an RV spot on the side of our house, but it's almost exactly 8 feet wide so we need something smaller than that. So far, not having much luck finding anything!

Good luck finding something that small. My new Jayco Jay Feather Sport 186 is 8' wide, as well as the 165 version. They're some of the smallest TT's I've seen, but still have an 8' width.

Shadow cruisers are all under 8' wide, some narrower than others. Taylor coach out of Canada also has narrow units. What kind of floorplan do you need? How many do you need to sleep?

I am certainly no expert, but I don't think I have ever heard of or seen one. Even pop-ups are more than 7.5 feet wide nowadays....

I wish you luck in your search!

Look at the Scamp, it may be less than 8 ft wide.

The old 7000 series trail lites were less than 8' wide. But I dont think they make those anymore (think 2005 was the last year).

Forestriver's lightweight trailers are 7.5 ft wide. This width does not include the few inches the awning will add.

Thanks for all of your responses so far. Just need to sleep two, but would prefer something with more space if possible. I realize that I'm asking for a lot here - narrow but more space, but I figure if it's out there, you guys are the ones who would know!
