2013 Serro Scotty Sportsman prototype….Part 2

Here’s a little walk-through video (without audio commentary) of the 2013 Serro Scotty Sportsman I had taken at the Big Little Rally earlier in August. I forgot I had taken this with my iPhone, so I put it up to give you an overall feel of the unit. Expect to see some changes with the next prototypes, as Bill Kerola had a lengthy punch list on this one.

    This looks like a nice small size trailer. I am looking for one that Mer. Grand Marquis can pull. I wish I could get something else than a teardrop. I’m not wanting to pay quite this much for one but I might. But then the problem become where do I buy it. I live in Texas. I would appreciate any suggestions of this and any other small trailers. I have looked at Aliners too but they are costly and also hard to find.

      Toni — A lot of it would depend on what your Merc can tow. What year & engine are in it? Once you know your tow capacity, that can aid in the process of elimination. I know a gent that has a ’96 Grand Marquis that recently purchased an Aliner Cabin A…something like this, but I don’t know his size: https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&safe=off&q=%22Cabin%20A%22%20aliner&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=isch&source=og&sa=N&tab=wi&ei=LQk8UP3mB82ayQHk_oCADg&biw=1280&bih=646&sei=MAk8UKCpG-XlyAG3yoHgBw

      Another possibility in the 1500-1600 lbs range would be a used T@B. A 4 or 5 year old model can be had for around $8K. Teardrop shaped, but you can stand in them.

        My Grand Marquis can tow 15oo lbs. I didn’t realize you could stand up in a Tab. I wouldn’t mind a teardrop type rv if it had a little height to it. They are very pricey. So I am trying to do my research and seeing what I can get that will suit me because I will be camping alone. Where do you suggest looking for a used Tab or other small rv’s? I live in Texas 2 hrs from Houston but still I find when I search on-line it is hard to find small rvs. thanks for your quick reply

          I love the look of the T@B. I think they are so cute looking!! 🙂

          At that tow capacity, I think a T@B would be too heavy. You always want to give yourself enough extra weight for all the other stuff. I probably wouldn’t consider anything over 1000lbs if your tow capacity is 1500.

          One that’s like an Aliner is called a Chalet. They make a model called the “LTW”. Looks like it checks in at 900-some pounds. It might be something you want to keep an eye out for that you could stand in, reasonable weight, and wouldn’t cut your fuel mileage too much since it’s a folding trailer, but hard walls/roof like an Aliner. Here’s a 2009 in NC that I found as an example. Y0u can also check Chalet’s website for info on that model.

          As for where to look, places like rvtrader.com or buyselltraderv.com are great places. You can get fairly specific with your search criteria on those sites, such as length, year, etc. I don’t think you can by weight though.

    Towing capacity can be misleading because you have to subtract whatever you
    put in the TV besides the driver. This number will reduce the tow rating but hopefully you have your manual to explain it. Some folks don’t. With the rvtrader link you can advanced search by trailer length. That will bring up the small ones.

    Also motors.shop.ebay.com then go to RVs-and-Campers you can search within your zip code distance by miles.
    Good luck.
