Thinking of moving up

Hi everybody
I have a t19gbhw 2015 that I tow with a Toyota Tundra 5.7. I'm happy as a pig in I know what. Now my dw would like to have a toilet and shower in the camper. I won't set up anything in th aframe it's just too small. So the question is , what's a decent lite weight trailer with a separate toilet and separate shower that is aerodynamic and not so large that I feel like I'm towing a brick house behind me. The current setup and I barely knows it's there when towing. Right now I'm all in for 13k. I wouldn't want to spend more than 20k figuring I'm not going to get close to what I laid out already.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Generally speaking, if you don't want to be towing a brick house, but want a toilet and shower, you are probably going to end up with a single axle trailer with a "wet bath," i.e., the toilet is essentially in the shower. You can get this in a r-Pod and several other similar TT's like Scamp and Casita. These are all somewhat aerodynamic.

You can see the r-Pods here: r-pod Travel Trailers by Forest River RV

x2!
Don't think that you'll find anything like what you want, that won't have a wet bath.
To have a separate toilet and shower, that you don't have to setup, requires more height and length.

might be a little more than you are looking to tow but some of the small hybrids could work for you. I love my hybrid although i am getting tired of the set up, although fast and easy, and its a bit more to clean.

I looked at RPod's before getting my A122SXR. I am 6'1" and could not stand up in the shower and the bed is short, only 75 inches as opposed to 80 inches.

You might check out the new Lance 1475 or maybe the 1575 but that might blow your budget.

Just my two cents...

The Lance looks nice will do more research. Thanks for the heads up.

My brother has a 1685 and a good friend has 2285. They are both awesome and true 4 season. The 1475 and 1575 are not 4 season. My next camper will be a Lance, and probably a 1685. You can find a used 1575 for under 20k. Good luck!

Why not get something like the Rockwood MiniLite 2304? NICE size bathroom and you can get the Murphy bed option that allows you to have a dinette AND a couch. I HATE sitting at a dinette, so the couch is a huge deal to me. Your Tundra won't break a sweat pulling it and you'll have plenty of room with a great bathroom. A good bit of storage for a camper it's size, too. Here's the floorplan if you want to check it out:

You may also want to consider a TrailManor or if you are into used, you may be able to find a HiLO. I just saw a 2004 24 ft with a slideout.
