My son is looking for a relatively small travel trailer. He hopes to find one with tandem axles, yet that will depend on the total weight of such a trailer. He will be pulling the trailer with a Toyota Tundra which does have a V8 engine, but I don't know what the towing capacity is yet. He would like the smallest trailer that has the tandem axles. Can you suggest some trailer brands we might look at?

I don’t think Casita offers tandem a led. You probably need to be around 19-20’ for a tandem axle.

small TT clicky

These folks have been around since the '60s first building truck campers and as the TC faded away moved over to TT and 5th wheel trailers.
They may not sell in your area but give them a call for area dealer or transporting.

I have about a 22' Hideout with tandem axles. Loaded weight (per CAT scale) is
4,980 lbs. I full-time in it, so it loaded. I have a Chev 1500, 4 door, short bed, V-8 and it tows it great. Without going outside to check model #, I think
19FLWE. 2018 model. Great little floor plan.

I'm towing a Coachman Freedom Express 192RBS with a 03 Tundra with a 4.7 liter motor. The TV has 200k miles. I have put over 35k miles on the TT, in the last 3 years without a problem.

We wanted a small TT with tandem axles and a small slide. The foorplan was very important to us along with a three burner stove, large frig, and two LPG tanks.
