We have a dishwasher in both our trailers. Either my wife or me. We spent the winter in our big 31 ft Kodiak. Now on the way home where we'll park it and use our Egg Camper for FUN.

Gas is just the begaining of it all, the licence is enought to pay for a lot of miles pulling a FG, and then some.

I would love to have a 40-foot motorhome...parked next to us. They provide excellent shade in the summer and block the cold wind in winter.

...bigger than any slideout, no mechanical or electrical problems, no maintenance, precisely, that is what camping is all about.

i have to admit i'm a little conflicted....moving up in size from my teardrop camper to a full sized scamp 13. i hope i don't come off as ostentatious at the camp grounds.

So true, I come from a group of tent camping friends. I went to show of my new egg and got eye rolls and looks of betrayal. Despite that none of us has pitched a tent more than a few yards from a car in years. We'll see who gets to come inside and play cards at the dinette on that cold wet day coming soon

small tent trailer

I camped for 31 years in a 10 foot tent trailer with a slide out bed on only one side. I loved it and towed it nearly 200K in 31 years. Even lived in it for two months when I was building my first house with a wife and a 6 year old. Slept in it when the temperature dipped to 18 degrees F. Towed it with a Toyota Corolla with minimal effect on fuel mileage. I often told people I could live in it except for a few minor inconveniences. Those being the lack of access when making a roadside stop, difficulty using a Wallmart or Cracker Barrel Parking Lot when I became tired and had not reached my destination, and having to close it in the rain.
I now have a Lil Snoozy on order and it will feel like the Ritz!

the guys I race with all have 30 foot mh's. Until I get my scamp, I sleep in a tent, or the back of my truck.. its nice having them around for wind blockage.

My original post was not meant to be mean spirited towards my big rig friends.They are "full timers" and I can understand why they desire the creature comforts.I was only throwing a little humor out there.Heck,I even have a/c...the roof vent.

i understand their desire for "creature comforts" too. however, those comforts come with a pricetag. a big one. i am happy with what i have...but i am always cognizant of the fact that what works for me today may not work for me a few years down the road..so i keep my options open.

Over the last few years I have gone from tent camping; loved it. Upgraded to a 13' Trillium; loved it. Now I have a 20' sticky; love it. Yes, towing the Trillium was more expensive than taking the tent; gas milage was worse and road tolls were higher. However, I loved the fact I could pull into a campground, or more often a Walmart, when on the road and cook a meal or have a sleep with no fuss.

As I get older (60), I find I appreciate more space and creature comforts. My Trillium had a Porta-Potti but now I have a full bathroom, including the shower I missed in the Trillium.

Yes, it costs more for gas now but the few extra dollars in cost are worth it to me for the extra features. I was able to buy my much newer sticky for $300. more than I sold my Trillium for. It has twice the space, is much newer and in much better shape.

I enjoy the 'egg' community; wonderful people. Perhaps I can park nearby and sneak into the odd campfire discussion... I'm sure I'll be welcome, as long as I don't park too close... LOL
