How about one of those Scamp's? They would be easy to tow and can get in a lot of small spots.

2010 GMC YUkON tow vehicle

mga60tw, thanks for reply. I failed to mention I am 6'2 and the scamps inside will not do. Am looking for suggestions that will be comfortable to live in, me & DW, for extended period of time. My "bucket list" includes visiting all the National Parks in the West. Would prefer to be at the maxium end of weight and comforts. Queen bed a must.

Try a 25rb evergreen. Weight is about 4300lbs dry. We have a Tahoe with the 5.3 and 3:73 gears. 7300lb capacity and 13K combined weight. We had a 19 Airstream but corner bed was a problem. We are also looking for a queen bed and like the Evergreen.
