We stopped several time at walmarts. Never like it. I would be driving and mental wide awake, then try to fall asleep in a very well lighted parking lot with much light coming through the curtains.

I found truck stops or the darker side of rest areas much better, but still not that good.

Most of the time, if all were looking for is a place to sleep for the night and it's late. We either do a camp site and don't disconnect or stop at a motel. Much better rest then having all the light and noise around us. Only issue with a motel at the time we stop, they are getting full and sometimes it's had to find a place to park with the trailer attached.

Then again in a brightly lit lot discourages intruders. Perhaps a blindfold like they give away on airlines ?

Going to a Dealer in Colorado Springs to look at a few Trailmanor's.

I am just in the looking phase at this time.
Last weekend I was in Lincoln, Ne and stopped at an RV dealer and
checked out a few campers. Liked the Coachmen RV Clipper Ultra-Lite 16B Travel Trailer. It was pretty nice and roomy.

Have always heard good things about "The Show" dealership. Good luck in your search.

Just check everything out including the awning operation (figure $1k to replace) and $400 for tires and wheels with balancing. Do not tow on unbalanced tires because everything takes a beating but the TV won't feel it.

Just got done checking out a few newer and older models. I must say even with the smallest model there is plenty of room. I must admit I was surprise with the bathroom size.

People are so surprised when they come into our trailer; they always say that it has way more room inside than they would think from looking at the outside.

What you need depends a lot on where you plan to camp. Florida in the 100 days of summer is not a place to go without AC. Anything south of the pulaski highway (basically south of i-70) is liable to be similar but have even experienced 90F one July day in Anchorage. (86F here yesterday but still nice nights).

So need to factor that into your plans. Are a lot of threads but to dry camp with AC figure on at least a 2500W generator & 10 gal of 87 PON/day.
