    Re: trailer comparison

    Just my 2 cents worth: I own a 2005 Aspen Classic which I've towed (with a GL1800) thru numerous states, both flat and hilly and have many miles on it. The only mods I've done is to add a shore power outlet for electric service, changed out all the lights to LEDs and installed 5-spoke aluminum wheels with 5:30-12 tires. Well built and very roomy, especially since I travel alone. More room than anyone needs.

    But - if I were to do it again I'd take a real hard look at the Roll-A-Home trailers or one of the other makes where the top of the trailer hinges down to become the floor of the dressing area. The tent of my Aspen (the dressing area) is directly on the ground under which I first put down a tarp as a ground cover. Invariably, the underside of the ground cover gets damp and covered with sand and dirt which must be swept or brushed off before folding up to use again the next night (a real pain in the axx to do). Some Aspen owners don't use a ground tarp and let the tent reside directly on the campground surface but then the bottom of the tent must be brushed off before final folding. Also, because the tent is directly on the ground I always spray around it's perimeter to keep ants out.

    Anyway, that's the only gripe I've got. Like I say, if I had to do it over again I'd buy a camper where the top hinges over to become the floor of the dressing area which has to be easier and faster to fold up than what I currently go through. Just my 2 cents . . . .

    yes we believe we are going with a roll-a-home . the set up is easy and almost at once. i think since we do a lot of traveling and most the time its one night set ups that the r-a-h will be easy and pain free unlike the others and also up off the ground and the storage i like you can get to it when the trailer is closed up unlike most others

    They are a Canadian company and the price $5095 is Canadian. I ordered mine 2 years ago....paid in Canadian dollars, at that time was less than $5000 plus options. I had it shipped across Canada for me. (I'm Canadian)
    When I asked if the price was US or Canadian dollars they replied "Yes, you would pay $5095 US dollars for the trailer. There is no exchange as rate as most of our customers pay with Visa and we have a US visa machine. "

    I wonder if you are not confused. I would give them a call again. You would be able to pay 5095 CAD with a US credit card, and the exchange would be calculated, and would show up as USD on your card statement(about 20% less).

    I'm going to call them myself....just to clarify.

    My second purchase p'up was just for this reason. Sometimes my girls joins me but most trips are solitaire. After riding for a long day I like being able to pull into just about anywhere and pop the top on the camper, a beer and be ready to unwind and snooze in minutes.

    The only downside to these style is the sheer size of flat ground you need. But it's a trade-off I'll take.
