I see you are in Bodega bay so this place seems to have a lot of trailers. Our camping buddies are going with this one. If you want bigger search their website.

Edit: It looks as though the link did not work. Try Best rv turlock.

Off topic but do you still have a lot of crows up there?

The Birds is a 1963 American natural horror-thriller film produced and directed by Alfred Hitchcock. Loosely based on the 1952 story of the same title by Daphne du Maurier, it focuses on a series of sudden and unexplained violent bird attacks on the people of Bodega Bay, California, over the course of a few days.

The film stars Tippi Hedren in her screen debut, alongside Rod Taylor, Jessica Tandy, Suzanne Pleshette and Veronica Cartwright. The screenplay is by Evan Hunter, who was told by Hitchcock to develop new characters and a more elaborate plot while keeping du Maurier's title and concept of unexplained bird attacks.

In 2016, The Birds was deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" by the United States Library of Congress, and selected for preservation in its National Film Registry.[3][4]

Oh, yeah, then the Outdoors RV models will likely be too heavy, that's the one downside of their stout construction, they're very heavy for their size.

with the towing/weight restriction consider the K-Z line.
Of the lightweights they seem to have better reviews, 2 yr warranty, and the Escape line is 7'6" wide making towing a little easier.

To capacitor: sure, we have lots of crows, but no more than when we lived in Oakland. Nasty birds.

Everyone here has heard of the movie. We even have an annual Tippi Hedren day, when she comes to be adored and to sign autographs. Old stills can be seen in a number of locations, including The Birds cafe.

The movie was filmed on location in Bodega Bay and in the nearby village of Bodega, which is a few miles inland. It is a hoot when a scene starts in one, then moves smoothly to the other.

Thank you for additional advice and suggestions!

Huntindog I didn’t look for the payload, but our intention is to stay well under the 6500 lbs with only 2 of us in the vehicle. We will not be carrying anything heavy, other than humans, in the SUV.

Great trailers. They're taking orders now for Spring 2022 delivery (or later).
