I just don't want to pull anything behind me or have a long rig. Thanks for all the advice,
I'm sorry things didn't work out with that trailer, but you discovered the problems in the best way. "Before you bought it." I owned a truck camper for a while. The operation is much like a motorhome. The big problem to me was that you basically have to break camp (disconnect power, water and whatever else is connected), before you can even do an short errand,
Don't give up on trailers. There is no magic involved in towing safely and comfortably. The whole secret is to lay back, relax, and don't be in a hurry.
Good luck in whatever you decide.
