We’re  about to pick up trailer #4 soon. #3 was kind of a mistake - we went no slide for weight and simplicity and my wife really struggled with the kids and dogs always passing through her space when  cooking and dishes etc. We’re getting one big slide this time along with larger bunks.

One thing to think about with those smaller single axle trailers is the very low payloads. Often they’re rated for under 1000 lbs including the water tank. Also watch for ultralight construction - things can be pretty flimsy. Try to get a 5/8” t&g plywood floor and walkable roof.

Good maintenance goes a long ways toward making it last.  Get an Equalizer hitch and maybe look at Sumo springs for a 1/2 ton - supposed to be really good.

Invest in good batteries and a small generator - tons of great free dry camping in WA. It’s fun to set up camp off the grid with all of the comforts for the family.
