Welcome to the forum Dan and family, it's a great bunch of people willing to share their knowledge and wisdom freely with a passion for Hi Lo trailers. We're older parents too, but the kids have their own lives and seldom travel with us. We do have one 12 pound Shih Tzu who thinks he rules the world and our 22 footer works perfect for us. Keep in mind Hi Lo measures frame length from hitch to bumper, so living cabin will be about 4 feet shorter. It's a little ways to travel, but Anderson RV in Topeka KS has a few trailers for sale.

Used TT

Don't worry about breaking tradition here, I've got a face made for radio
Happy camping, see you down the road

Thanks for the nice welcome Ken. We aren't in a very big rush on getting our Hi-Lo. We will wait for a very good condition unit from an OCD owner, like I am with my vehicles and toys. Based upon some good advice I'd have to say we are now looking more towards 22-24ft.

Thanks for link to the dealer.

Glad to hear I am not dragging down the Hi_lo owner attractiveness average all by myself. My daughter describes me as a cross between Matthew McConaughey and Shrek She speaks the truth.

Looking forward to meeting some of the good folk here on this forum.

Dan

I have come across a pretty nice looking M2306 Classic. I have posted some questions with pics in the "Curious About Hi-Lo Trailers" forum.

I would very much appreciate some experienced eyes and opinions. Here is a link to that thread: Need Eyes on These Pics to Help Me Understand if This M2306C Has Issues

Thank you for your help,

Dan

Welcome to the forum! If your intent is to park the Hi-Lo in the garage, be aware that the length may not be the limitation if you have a standard 7 ft. opening- height will be. Although the trailer's roof may be low enough, the rooftop AC unit will be higher. The traveling height listed in the Hi-Lo brochures does not include the 11 or so inches of the AC unit, so be sure to measure your garage and the trailer carefully before purchasing. I believe the Classic models are a bit lower than the Towlites, but there is less ground clearance.

Thanks for the information Greg. The garage has a 9ft high opening so we are good there. I think it is interesting the Classics ride lower than the TowLites. Is do simply to increased weight, or was it designed to be lower?

We had previous Hi-Lo years ago. We recently bought a new truck and made the decision to start looking for a decent used RV. Searchingly​ was an eye opening experience. Newer lightweights just seem so cheaply constructed. Better quality trailers require serious tow vehicles. Looked at a couple used Hi-Lo trailers and we were instantly reminded about what we loved about our previous Hi-Lo. That put our search emphasis more towards Hi-Lo. Searched all the online listings and looked at several. Had one we were leaning towards but we're fully committed so the search continues. After a day of yard work 2 weeks ago, I showered and was relaxing with a glass of iced tea and the dogs outside on the deck I decided to look and see if any new listings (all makes) were on our local Craigslist. 12 listings down, listed just 2 hours previously, was a mint Hi-Lo 22' in the neighboring town. Older (1999) than what we had been searching for but it was original owner, all documentation and paperwork, and been kept in covered storage the majority of its life. Called to look at it, and it was love at first sight. Everything in 100% working order and flawlessly maintained with all supporting documentation and receipts. Patience paid off. We are absolutely loving our "new" Hi-Lo. Keep searching, you just might find exactly what your looking for. Also check Craigslist. This private owner unit excelled every other dealer unit we had looked at, though there were a couple decent looking dealer units. The one dealer unit we were leaning towards was a consignment sale. Craigslist listings are constantly changing so check often. Good luck!
BTW, our search criteria was almost identical to yours. We wanted a unit we could store in our existing covered storage area. The 22' was perfect. We want to keep this trailer as well maintained as it was previously.
