19' trailer, 5' high when driving, 6.5' when parked???
« on: August 04, 2010, 11:50:57 PM »
Ever seen something like I saw today in someone's yard for sale?  This thing was a 19' travel trailer, 1994, weighed 3000 lbs dry, sleeps 6, when it's being pulled it 5 feet high, and when you park to camp it cranks up to 6-1/2 feet high?  I phoned the number for more info but nobody answered.  I didn't have a pen (I was on my mountain bike) so just memorized the number, which was only one digit off from mine, so I can call them again.  I can't remember the name of it.  Does anyone here know what I mean so I can look this thing up for more info in the meantime while waiting to connect with the owners?

The Hi-Lo was an idea that never really caught on much although some people like them.

You do get less wind resistance but at the expense of more complexity, setup time, and air leaks.

Drove by the trailer again and got the name so I could look up a picture to share here.  I can't figure out how to post pictures in here - can it be done?  Anyway, here is the link to one like it:

It's called a Sun Lite Discovery trailer.

Hmm, a hybrid, I guess.  Not quite a popup, and not quite anything else either.
