Plenty of slimmer TTs being made. They are the lighter weight, shorter TTs though. KZ's Sportsmen Classic series, for example, are 7' wide. Forest River Ibex has some 7'4" models. Coachmen Apex Nano models are 7'6". Scamp and Casita are 6'8" wide. That's just a small sampling.

Get yourself some good towing mirrors and you'll find that towing an 8' wide trailer is no more difficult than towing one that's 7' wide.

Aaaand we’re off again.
This discussion and the originator of the thread seem like Deja vu...
I will say, there is likely not a vehicle, nor trailer, as crazy as that seems that meets all your personal particular needs or wishes.
Sounds crazy, as there are soooo many different types of vehicles and trailers available in virtually every configuration. But based on your current and past posts regarding this, I’ll go out on a limb and say that nothing will be acceptable compared to the ultimate rerod package that you are imagining or wanting.

Yeah the mini's are 7' wide, but the R-pods are 8' because they use external fenders instead of wheel wells. Easier to make..

Thanks everyone for all the information.

That's pretty good Grit dog.
Probably very accurate and yep I do stop by once in a while and ask about narrow track campers.. If nobo(IBEX) made a shorter 16' version, Id buy that. If the sportsman had azdel and aluminum, I'd buy that.. If some trailers didn't have big goofy fenders, I'd already be on the road. But no, Ive been flagging scammers for years..

Seriously, there's a order to my madness, and with lumber prices doubling, that has postponed my garage project out on the farm and the garage needs to be built before I buy a new trailer.. Id take a used one if I could find one right now though.

The Coachman Clipper and Clipper Cadet lines are both 7 foot wide. We have the Clipper Cadet 16CFQ. Perfect for just the two of us. Call it our rolling Motel 6.

If I remember correctly, Casitas are 6'11" wide. That was in 2006 and they may be a little wider now. Call the Casita factory in Rice, Texas, and they can tell you exactly.
