Advantage, 16' Bambi!

This ( parking in front to back spaces) would more difficult with anything much larger!

On those rare occasions when we go to town, we take four, they're cheap.

Antique Pedaler, what model trailer is that in your photo? 23' Safari SE?

Of course, if you tow with something like a Touareg or a Grand Cherokee, you can fit a bigger trailer in the spot behind you!

Yes, that is a photo of the 23' we've replaced with this 25' FC. But that is another story. We have a Touareg TDI that will pull this trailer almost as easy as the pictured Dmax.

Excellent advantage. I have to find a block of spaces for my 25' and TV.

We do the 2-spaces thing with our 19' as well...makes it easy to make that last minute stop on our way to a campground.

I just had to post this, somebody stated that the only advantage of a 16 was parking space when storing! I think I'll continue to list advantages as I find them!!!!

Don't forget tires, brakes and axles are half the cost of my 25' trailer.

Does that mean they are twice as likely to fail???
I'm looking for clear cut advantages....
