Gotta agree with that. Our two little dogs traveled the world with us. Extra work, yes, but worth it a hundred times over. No guilt to leaving them behind and super ambassadors. Got to meet and talk to lots of people because they were such good ice-breakers. Disturb other people, never. There were people who flew from Europe to Vancouver who never even knew there was a little dog under their seat.

The down side. She wanted to share both the chicken and the beef.

Jasper, being raw fed, gets both on a regular basis, and probably eats better than us.

They're not new, but they are now the most common type...
  • high-profile: stand-up headroom around bed in loft bedroom
  • mid-profile: walk-around (while crouching) room around bed in loft bedroom
  • low-profile: crawl-in bed loft (e.g. Escape, most combined horse/RV trailers)
The height is usually somewhat proportioned to the length: no one makes high-profile fifth-wheel trailers as short as the Escape 5.0/5.0TA or low-profile (or even mid-profile) monster trailers.

Most of the "toy hauler" (with garage in the back, usually for off-road vehicles) trailers are high-profile, and take advantage of the height to have a second crawl-in bedroom over the front part of the garage. They look especially big because they carry that roof height all the way to the back, instead of sloping down like an Escape 5.0/5.0TA or conventional fifth-wheel trailers.

Yeah, they can make even a full-size heavier-duty 4x4 pickup look low...
