Default 2020Hi Lo

Hi, I have heard that the HiLo trailer is back in production and that they are coming out with a new model for 2020.

We called the new manufacturer and asked for information.
It has been a couple of weeks and we have not heard back from them.

Does anybody on the forum have any info on new models for 2020?


Thanks,
Dennis

I googled and also searched "RV Business" and "The Small Trailer Enthusiast" and none had any mention of Hi-Lo for 2020. I don't believe the small units that were manufactured by the "new" Hi Lo did well. No bath at their price point was probably an issue. There is always the possibility that something behind the scenes is happening with an acquisition or something as there is always interest in the Hi Lo, and the used ones are few and far between. We get a lot of people asking about them when they see ours that looks almost like new on the outside.

It would be great news to us as we are looking for a slightly larger one, and newer would be better! If I see anything about a 2020, I'll certainly post it. Fingers crossed!

My observations have been that Kerola is always promising new models but fails to produce. A number of years ago they were to show the new Hi-Lo at a local RV show but failed to have one there. What models they have had were not the Hi-Lo of the past.

1509; I agree about the toilet. I don't always use it but when I really need to it's close. This also is a big issue with women and children.

I have used the shower only once since I don't have a lot of water so I use body wipes. This year I showered at a 24 hour fitness for $5.00. I was told a lot of long distance truck drivers have annual memberships to 24 Hour Fitness as they are cleaner, more affordable and in many cases more accessible than truck stops. I can believe that.

I have probably towed my 1509 Hi Lo over 50,000 miles with my 2002 4 Runner with 285,000 miles occassionally getting 15+mpg. A larger Hi Lo would be nice but then I would need a V 8 engine as I had with my first Hi Lo over 30 years ago.

Camping vehicles, like tents are a compromise and we are always looking at something else. Since mine is covered in my drive for the winter six months (mid Oct- Mid April) I'm happy not to have more invested and every year plan more outings.

The Denver R V show is next month so I will go and drool. If there are new Hi Lo's I'll be certain to post information on this forum.

Bottom line ! Use whatever you have more. Campers are fun people and there are more places than any of us can visit in one lifetime.

Default New Hi Lo

Brookside1954, when were the "new" Hi Lo's made that you mention, with no bathrooms? We have a 1993 and I don't know much about when they stopped making them, etc. And when the "new" ones were made?
As far as a 2020 model, that would be cool and interesting to see! We'll have to wait and see, I guess.

I'm not Brookside, but I believe the last HiLo that was made by the original company happened in 2011. They all had bathrooms with toilets. The ones that are appearing from the new company have never had toilets.

Here is what Kerola.com has to offer, a brochure.
