The Bargam class Tramp Trader appears in 101 Starships. It is designed for GURPS Tech Level 10.
One of the many small traders plying the spacelanes one step ahead of her creditors, the Bargam is too small to compete anywhere but the boondocks. When even a full load of freight isn't enough to make a mortgage payment, captains/owners are forced into speculative trading - or smuggling - to make ends meet.
