Question one: I've been looking at Travel Trailers or Teardrop Campers, whatever you want to call them, specifically the [email protected] because it's the less insanely priced one. I'm in Texas btw

Do you have to get them registered? (I expect that's a yes)

Do you have to insure them? (I'm betting yes again)

How badly to they deteriorate your mileage? (I'm guessing they probably halve it - wait, should that be double it?)

Why are they so expensive?

I've never towed anything, though I did drop the extra thousand to get the tow package on the Y ... how hard is it to tow one?

Question two: are there groups that can perform an intervention and STOP me from going ahead with this? I need an extra vehicle in the driveway like I need a hole in the head and I don't know that I'd get much use out of it ... but it does look like fun!

Maybe I should look on Turo . . .

Edited to say: wow you actually CAN rent them for a night or so
