We stopped to see the Egg Camper
on our trip to Michigan. The outside is very impressive but the inside was a real disappointment. The overhead cabinets, few as their were, are very small and lined with the space blanket material seamed with silver duck tape. The seats were lower than a Casita
and the cushions were very thin with low quality material. If you want a microwave
you can get one mounted with metal brackets hanging down to hold it in place. The owner was very nice but told us he purchased a dozen microwaves for $35.00 each from Wal-Mart. I think he should have left that information out.
Marketing is all about weight
and not interior quality. Pressed flooring, which was sealed and you can purchase a rug that fits the floor plan and can be removed, similar to a throw rug but fits the entire flooring. He had a carpet floor wall to wall rug in one of the trailers and it was creeping all over the little time we were in it. Again the rug material was of very poor quality and with one washing I can see it shrinking and no longer fitting wall to wall. The refrigerator
was smaller than the 16ft Casita’s with a freezer the size of less than a ½ gallon ice cream container. You can get the Egg Camper
with shore power or battery
power but not both. The air conditioner was placed under the seat and blows directly towards the outside door and not into the trailer. No outside step, no screen door, no window in the outside door, no venting of the refrigerator
from the outside, no bathroom door, extra would be a folding bathroom Plexiglas see through door.
I did like the design of having the sink first when you entered and not having the refrigerator
cabinet blocking the enterance view when you walk in like on the Casita
design. This did give it a more open look but then again it was very bare and plain on the inside.
IMO: the outside is of first quality but the inside is far from quality. You even have to purchase a board (pressed wood is what he showed us) to go across the back seat if you want to make the back seats into a bed. The cabinet doors and table are pine and look really cheap, no handles or locks on the cabinets for traveling.
I believe this guy has the beginning of a good trailer but light weight
is not the only factor, interior quality would help pick up his business. I will say that the shell was very strong and in my opinion better than the Casita in strength. The price was very high for what you were getting with many add-on's that made it even higher than a 17ft Casita.
Glad we took the time to see it and made us appreciate the interior quality and extras we have in our Casita.
