A man down the road from me just bought one. He was happy to show it, ( they have the same incentive as scamp, $250.00 for buyer referrals) I thought it was very nice.
I'm 6' and easily had 6 or 7 inches above my head. The toung looked longer and the spare tire is mounted up front.
Thanks, Eric. That is great information. I relocated my spare to the front and I really like it there. . Were the propane tanks there also?

Trouble is with a longer tongue, and being as how these trailers are measured from tongue to rear bumper it would appear you get less living space, No???

We actually stopped in saturday while driving around. This place is 15 minutes from our house. It was after hours and they were locked up but they do look very nice. If anyone needs info or pics we can try to swing by again.
Hi Kevin,
Are you guys right off of a main road and also own a larger Trailer? I may have met you about 4 or 5 years ago. I own a 1978 Trillium 4500 Deluxe in Howell, MI with my wife and 12 year old son. Let me know. I was just in Grand Haven & Springlake about a week ago. I just lost out on winnng on Ebay a "Porta-Bote" 10 foot foldable boat in Springlake, MI. Have a nice day!
Dave

We ran a thread some time ago asking everyone what the perfect trailer would look like for you. I wonder how this Egg Camper shapes up compared to that survey? I remember most wanted a bathroom with a door. Other than that they seemed to be all over the board. In the picture of the Egg it appears to have no bathroom door so I suppose the shower curtain is to serve as a privacy divider.

The spare tire is mounted close to the body with the propane tanks further out on the tongue. Might be a little inconvenient removing the spare but flat tires are not fun in any curcumstance. And yes there is no bathroom door, just a accordian style shower curtain.

After talking to Jim at Egg Camper, they still install the glass shower door if one wants it. One of the reasons they use a curtain is because it tucks out of the way and increases the visual space. I believe he said the (bathroom) doorway is about 30" wide so I'm now glad it doesn't have a door. This would be a large piece of wood. When I asked if I could add a door at some point, he said that it was structurally able to handle one, so yes. At first I gasped when he said 30", but it makes sense. The Casita front bathroom door is about 22" (on mine) so a trailer that is 8" wider ... well, that comes to 30".

Not necessarily, Bill, but there's probably less difference than you think. Have you done an actual inside length measure of your Casita? The inside of my 16' is actually a few inches shy of 13'. The way I figure it, the 17' Casita is only about 6" longer on the inside than my 16" and that difference is in the bed. The fridge is larger, but that is taken up in the aisle and the kitchen. I very well could be wrong, but try as I might, I never could find a full 12" of difference in the two. The fact that the Egg camper has seperate interior walls might lose an inch or two, but the Casitas front wall is also double so it wouldn't be much.

The thing that makes it so hard (for me) to compare brands of molded trailers is that they all have their pluses and minuses. There are things that I like and dislike in all of them, so it makes it really hard to compare. That's why each person has to decide what is important to them.

Karen, I know that Ken and Diane have a wonderful Trill, but I don't think they are ready to put it up for sale just yet. Are you Ken?

Let there be no misunderstanding, we like the look of the new Egg Camper but our Tril has become a family pet. I doubt we will ever part with it.

The Trillium 4500, as we have it set up, weighs about 1,700 pounds empty. The last time we weighed it loaded and ready to roll it was about 2,000 pounds with about 150 tongue weight.

There is a new film retractable shower door that has been around for about five years and is finding acceptance in many new RVs. I installed one in my Airstream motorhome after removing the old accordion door and one came pre-installed in my new Bigfoot.

They're light weight, and translucent, but not transparent. They're really an excellent piece of equipment that does what they're supposed to. They self-store and don't take up much space.

Not sure, but they are not installing it there. It is installed under the front dinette seat next to the bathroom.

That looks great, Roger. I hadn't seen that before.
