Suggestions for grandparents?

My parents have recently moved from England to Vancouver BC. They have had caravans ( Ttrailers) for years back home and are thinking of buying a small TT here. Dad only has a small SUV pulling a mere 3500lbs. We know it is going to be small but is there any suggestions on what they could get. It's mainly going to be just them but occasionally the 2 grand kids are sure to tag along.

There are several small trailers in the 2,000 pound range,,, One such manufacturer is SCAMP.. But I have seen several others in that same size class (I mention Scamp only because I owned one) it was a good size for two average size people for vacation/weekend travel,, I'd not wish to full time in one.
Home is where I park it!

I'd recommend a pop-up or lightweight hybrid of some kind. There will be enough sleeping space for all with these.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

BC is littered with free campsites. Most are by the ocean, rivers and lakes. The only catch is that many sites are small and require backing into, thus there is an advantage to having a small trailer.

We had a tent trailer when we lived there which provides a lot of room when open, is easy to tow and maneuver. However they require some care to close up when the canvass is wet (and then it needs to dry once at home).

If it wasn't for the dog and kid, we probably would have towed a Tab or Aliner.

They probably should find something 2000 lbs or less, tow ratings are always a bit optimistic.
