Another thought; Northwood Mfg is one of the best 4-Season TT mfrs out there. Like you, I spent a good amount of time researching. And another advantage of the Artic Fox TT is that it is 8'-6" wide. Standard width for TT's is 8'.

We have upgraded but have had a Palomino Gazelle Ultra Light Weight
Travel trailer. It has been the best little trailer. Only 18 feet, double axle
(highly recommend tows like a dream) double propane tanks so you have plenty with you. Did have to change out stock tires. Something like this would probably work great for you. And yes would recommend a generator. Our Honda has been wonderful, people comment how quite it is. Happy Traveling !!

Research update

So far, I've only found a couple in the 21' or under length I was looking for, that come highly recommended by most of you, that have a bed the right size. The Winnebago Minnie and Nash 17k have a full length (80") Queen size bed. The Arctic Fox 22series (which is just a tad big), also does. Many, if not most, of the others I've checked into have only a 74.5" Queen. I contacted Creekside as suggested, (Outdoor RV Mfg, Inc.) and they said all their models including Timber Ridge, Back Country, Wind River, and Creekside all have the shorter queen. Their BlackStone series has an 80", but only in the 26' and longer. I'm 6'5" and hate my ankles hanging off the end of the bed. I'm still researching though! I may be a bit premature, but already ordered an ifrared temperature gun to check the hub and tire temperature on the trailer I don't have purchased yet. That will be my motivational piece..

I would add - try to get a trailer that has a rounded or areodynamic front cap. I believe it will be easier to tow with a 1/2 ton truck.
