Hello everyone.

I used to own a 24'x 8.5' TH and sold it because it was to long and mainly wide to escape the camp grounds.

I shouldn't have sold it so quickly, because I have not found a replacement yet. But I didn't realize finding a narrower TT or TH would be practically impossible. Shorter isn't the problem, it's the width.

A jayco 16XRB is 7' wide, but I'm not looking for a hybrid because Ive read the doors can have de-lamination blistering issues.

Ive also read "Eddie" made 7' wide TT's..

What other TT and TH's are narrow enough not to need towing mirrors or are less than 7.5' wide?

Thanks!

That’s why I bought again in 2015...when the Minnies were 7.5 feet wide.

You’re still searching for unobtanium?
Thought you were buying a narrow cargo trailer and converting it?

Yep, pretty much. But a narrow track cargo TH might be more elusive than a narrow TT.

When I learned the new no-bo TH is only 7.5' wide, I thought maybe manufactures might have realized some folks want a narrower package, but maybe that's just wishful thinking.

Scamp, Casitas, and similar "egg trailers" are narrow...and indeed generally small in all dimensions. That, of course, does noticeably impact their interior room and tank sizes and storage space availability.

It is wishful thinking. There used to be a lot of 7.5' trailers, up to around 2007. But manufacturers stopped making them because the public preferred wider 8' trailers. Look how popular slideouts became.
There has been a movement with younger buyers, for a smaller and lighter TT, like the NoBo and Geo/E-pro trailers. But that comes with very little living space and is a small percentage of RV buyers.
If you start looking for used trailers 2007 and older, you'll probably find a lot more 7.5' wide TTs.

Not at all - Coachmen RV has offered and continues to offer several models that are 7.5' wide, including Apex and Apex Nano models, and now also offers 7' wide models in the Catalina Summit series.

I found a narrow KZ mini toyhauler. I was liking what I was reading even though it looks cheap until I read the word luan..

You’re hard to satisfy methinks.
What would you replace the luan with? 1/2” plywood? There’s a balance between quality, weight and functionality.
There are trailers out there that fit your wants unless you refuse to recognize them.
