Travel Trailers

I know of only one, scamp trailers (Scamp Travel Trailers: Small Lightweight Campers, Easily Towable) that make travel trailers just for mid-size pick-up's. I like the 19ft mini-5th wheel one, but I was curious. Is there any other companies that cater to those of us with mid-size trucks (talking about 1st gen's)? Or are the any travel trailers with mid-size trucks in mind?

I am moving to Valdosta, GA (from the Portland, OR area) for 1 year August to August. And instead of wasting a years rent somewhere I rather just buy a travel trailer, tow it with the frontier live in it and tow it back to Portland, OR. Don't think I'm crazy, I spent 4 years in the Navy so a 19ft camper is like a mansion, and it would be way cooler!

Any help is great!

I forgot to add, I know I can do 19ft.....if my friends dakota can pull this. I know the Frontier will have no problems with something of this size.

Checkout Keystone, they make some nice UltraLight TT's... There are a few brands (like AeroLite) out there that are designed to even be towed by a Minivan.

To be honest, alot of people think too much into the length.....

The type of TT makes more difference than the length ever will... For some reason, you have two identical TT's and one is much heavier than the other, and I mean not even close in weight... Go off the TT's GVW then also the Hitch Weight. Figure in where the Hitch weight is gonna fit into your Payload.

Also, popouts and slideouts make alot more difference than the length... For example, you can have a 17' with popouts and slideouts that give it alot more room than a 21' has, depending on the floorplan of course.
