Yup its a problem finding something near you but if you end up like many of us you may find yourself traveling on short notice across a few provinces and states to find what you really want.

There is one rally planned in Michigan as well as a couple of others not to far off the border across the line in Ontario this summer. The Fiberglass Rally Map.

Thanks Carol!

There is a rally in door county,WI in June. I plan on posting a reply there to introduce myself. We will either show up in our little vintage Acotty or have our own egg by then. I really am not in a hurry to buy but don't want to miss out if one i like at a good price comes under my radar. I realize we might be traveling to get one. Probably no farther than Texas however.

Come to the Ohio rally. There are all sizes and kinds of fiberglass there. It is in Sept.

With the side dinette on the SD, You also have the option of a rear twin, with a dinette in front of it, and a side twin, should you tire of climbing over one another and still want a dinette.

I do not think the Escape 17 or 19 have as wide a bed as the Casita.

Call Casita and they will give you contacts for the different style trailers to help you decide.

Casitas- I'm leaning to the 17 foot freedom as I like the idea of the chairs AND the 54 bed. The liberty looks like if you have the bed opened up, there is no place to sit and eat or whatever so big bed but at a cost? It is hard for me know by looking at pictures only.

We were looking at an Oliver used but the bed is only 48 inches. I really know that we need space....that 6 inches will be crucial. Ha ha

Thanks all....there is so much to figure out before you buy so we are doing all our homework so that when one comes up, we are ready to pounce. I like having a few to choose from as long as they have my must haves, one of those of course is bed size.

A Scamp Deluxe IS a 54" bed. The new standard 13' Scamp can be ordered with the 54" bed, but I don't know if the 16' Standard can be ordered with the larger bed.

Escape:
17' Plan A has a front bed 52x77
17' Plan B has a front bed 30x77
both plans have a rear bed/dinette 49x77

The Escape 19' has a permanent queen size rear bed and front bed/dinette 44x80

Yep, Donna, I don't think there was a 19 Escape when we were looking. Maybe it was a bigger Big Foot, and I thought it odd that a bigger trailer would not have a bigger bed. Then again, my memory is not as good as it used to be.

Thanks for catching that. I have even wished for the 19 Escape because of the bed, duh! terry r.

Well folks, get this! We bought a 2008 17 ft Oliver legacy elite today. Yup! Can't believe it myself. But we loved those trailers as soon as we saw them and they had one they wanted to unload at Quartile site, AZ so we got. T for a good price. The bed is a tad smaller than wanted, 51 by 74. But everything else we wanted is there. And if needed the side dinner makes I to a bed as well. We are pretty excited and can't wait to meet our Fiberglass friends out and about.

Karen

Congratulations Karen! The Oliver is a great trailer and I'm POSITIVE you're going to make a ton of memories.

Pictures? Did you say you'd post pictures?

Thanks Donna, it's pretty awesome. I'm glad I spent so much time on these boards learning about all the trailers. I would have been happy with a casita or scamp as well. But my husband was taken with the Oliver and when we could get it for a good price, well....it just happened. See you all around! Karen

Good for you! Now you need to bring it to the Ohio rally. I don't think we have ever had one of those there. It would be well visited during the "open house" time. terry r.

It is at Dillon State Park. I think we had 40 or more units last year... maybe 44. There will be more info to come in March. I believe it is the third weekend in Sept. It is in area close to one of the largest Amish communities in country. There are other things to see and do even closer to the campground. terry r.

Congrats Karen!!!! Thats a nice trailer - I had the pleasure of seeing on a few years ago while camping in Tofino on Vancouver Island.
Something tells me the bed size issue will be a non event after your first trip with it!!!

Have fun.
