Since my original post I have ordered a Ford Ranger. It has a 7500 lb tow rating, so I will definitely look for a smaller, lighter trailer. I’m still leaning towards a 320, but when the time comes, if I can find a good used Casita for a reasonable price, I might go that way.

Maybe I should have mentioned I have camped with my wife in a 27-foot Airstream, a 35-foot diesel pusher, a MB Sprinter-based class C, and another 27-foot trailer. I’m pretty familiar with the pros and cons of size, and since it’s likely I’ll be traveling by myself, a smaller RV is all I need. After all, my last “camping” was a foam mattress in the back of a pickup truck. Pretty much anything will be a real step up from that.


Casitas are nice as well. We are partial to the T@B because, we’ll, we have one. [emoticon]. But it’s a 400. We did like the 320 though. We just decided that we wanted a made up bed so we went with the little bigger 400. It’s on the limits of our tow vehicle but it tows like a champ and we are within all the weights and numbers so why not. We pulled into Revelstoke earlier today. Doing the Dam tour and train museum tomorrow. Hopefully the weather cooperates. [emoticon].

Good luck with your hunt. I’m sure you’ll find something that works.

I would recommend checking out the winnebago rv trailers. They have a variety of models that might fit what you are looking for. Narrow and light is definitely something they specialize in. Plus, they have a good reputation for quality so you can be confident in your purchase.

I have owned my T@B for thirteen seasons. It's the 320 size. I have travelled coast-to-coast, as well as FL to MT more than once. Hubby has recently began coming, too. We currently have it in twin bed mode. For stays over 3 nights we often utilize the fully-enclosed add-a-room. Suits our needs.

I also second looking at the 400 model. They made some good improvements for the 2023 model year, IMO. I also admin a Facebook group for T@Bs and accessories for sale if you want to join and take a look at used. Search for "T@B, T@G, and T@DA Campers/Accessories/Parts for Sale-North America".

In many states, RVs under 4000 lbs. GVW don't require a title to sell


I've never seen a trailer (RV, cargo, utility, etc) traveling down the highway without a license plate on it.

Which states allow trailers to go on public roads with a license plate (and title)?


Come visit Oregon. you'll see plenty of utility etc. w/o plates. trailer under 1800 loaded weight don't need plates. Some of the smallest TT may make it, utility trailers are usually light enough to not need a plate. The issue is when traveling to another state and getting pulled over, been there done that, convincing LEO that oregon didn't require plates or trailer brakes took some time.

Since I originally posted that I had ordered a Ford Ranger, I have cancelled that order and ordered a Maverick with a 4000 lb towing capacity. If I ever actually get a Maverick I will be limited to pretty small trailers. That almost certainly means a 320 rather than a 400, or a Casita.

Well, the folks we know with 320’s love them. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it. There are a couple different Facebook groups for the T@Bs. Lots of helpful folks.

Good luck.

You'll need to look for a 16' or 13' Casita. Not enough tow vehicle for a 17', they are tongue heavy. Also Scamps are available in 13' and 16'.
