Hi: Russell,H... The biggest single drawback to owning a fiberglass TT, is IMHO being "on display" everywhere you go!!! We just returned from a 6000km. trip to the Maritimes and first night out before my foot hit the ground we had "lookers". We moved up from a '77 Boler to an '07 Escape 5.0 5th. wh. so the cute factor shifted. Now all those bulgemobile owners with the diesel dually tugs "just have to have a look". To them "It's Cute". Did I mention we averaged 18.5 MPG for the trip!!!

Here we are in Plymouth, MA (and I might add that we saw NO fiberglass trailers on our trip yet! Where is everyone out here in the east?!). We barely set up when we had a family of lookers that included their dog and bunny.
