We purchased a Forest River Surveyor SP189. Is this virtually the same Trailer as the Micro Lite. We are planning a 6 month trip as we do every year. We had a Trailmanor last year and got tired of setting it up and down. Reason for such a small trailer is the amount of mileage we drive annually. Florida to Los Angeles to Michigan and back to Florida. We do this twice per year. Pulling the Trailmanor we average around 15 mpg with the Durango on the highway. Trying to figure out what to expect with the SP189, more wind resistance. The Trailmanor got a bit tight sometimes with me and the wife and two small dogs, but we survived. It extended out to 27ft, but no slide. I think space will be a trade-off with the slide and cabinets that we can fill. Should be an interesting winter. We leave in October and come back in April. Only way we can visit kids and grandkids and spend time with them that I know. We rent out house out to snowbirds while we are on the road. Extra income and I have to leave a house empty. We have 3 rentals and have more problems when they are empty than when rented. Anyway trying to follow post closely to look for suggestions before we leave. Once on the road, I pretty well keep things as is except for repairs. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
We are driving a Dodge Durango and pulling a Evergreen G269FK. We also have two Cairn Terriers. 2 Champion Generators. This year, planning on 6 months in our Evergreen visiting, California, Michigan, and Ohio. We live in Florida. Grandkids, and dogs are why we camp. Also have a Hensley Hitch which that eliminates all sway. Pricey, but worth it.
