I, personally, love the Genesis
. I am a previous Scamp
owner and current LittleGuy teardrop owner. To me, the Genesis
blends the two -- it is sort of a super-teardrop. The drawbacks of teardrops are, primarily, no changing room and no bathroom. The outdoor kitchen is, to my way of thinking, only a problem if you frequently camp in very wet or very windy conditions. Something that Genesis might consider is making a tent-enclosure for the galley, to make cooking in the rain more pleasant.
We have a little out-house tent and a porta-pot that suits us fine, but there is no denying the attraction of a "real" bathroom. The Genesis has an unbelievably nice bathroom for such a small camper -- far, far, far, and let me say FAR better than what is offered in most of our egg campers.
If I were to tire of my teardrop (not likely anytime soon), I would very seriously consider the Genesis. Granted it is quite heavy, but it seems to be really well built, and I like that. With just a few exceptions, most SUVs and small pickups can handle the weight
By the way, just as a comparison, my Scamp
13 Dlx (with fridge
, air, bathroom, etc) weighed 1800 pounds. This trailer is a foot shorter and 1000 pounds heavier. That adds up to a lot of extra material! That also means it is a lot more solid. Compared to the Genesis, the Scamp
frame is much lighter, the fiberglass is much thinner, and the interior is much more "basic". Not trying to talk down the Scamp at all (We loved ours!)-- just saying that the Genesis is a nice match for the "build it once" folks.
I would dearly love to see one in person.
