The manufacturer says "It is so light and maneuverable that you can usually move it around by hand.  Most light trucks and SUV's can easily handle the T@B. In addition, many mini vans and passenger cars can also pull them."   (Check your car owner's manual: if you have a tow rating of 2000 lbs or more, you can tow a T@B )

The U-shaped floorplan is shown below. It has a U-shaped dinette and sofa bed that convert to a 70"x80" bed.  This was the original T@B arrangement.  The Cool Cat air conditioner with heat pump is an option

The 2 floorplans above can be combined into the "Queen Bed with L-Shaped Galley" floorplan (see the queen bed model floorplan and pictures here).  This has the "L" shaped galley on the front wall of the trailer and the U-Shaped sofa bed that converts to a large 70" x 80" bed.

"Clam Shell" arrangement:

This arrangement has an outside galley.  The two sofas convert to a 70" x 58" bed.  The front wall storage and a bench seat.
