check out local trailers? - lower Michigan

Hey, I'm starting to look for a fiberglass trailer. I'm not decided on manufacturer. Would love to be able to see some in person. I've contacted Scamp, Casita and Escape. The only response I got was from Escape, but the couple they suggested I contact have not answered their phone for a week now. Must be out traveling.

Would love to hear from someone in the Port Huron/Croswell area who might be willing to give me a tour. Maybe this is a taboo , for security concerns. I was surprised that I couldn't find any post suggesting this to noob's.

Thanks, Lyle

I got responses and list of local owners from both Scamp and Casita. Did you say "please"?

I am pretty sure I saw a note on Casita's website that they were shut down for summer holidays for the past two weeks. You will probably get a response when they are back and all caught up.

MCDenny lives over your way and has a Lil Snoozy. No idea if he's around home, though.

Probably right Clare. I'll give them a few more days, then maybe call instead of email.

I'm almost all the way across the state from you but you're welcome to look at my Escape 19. Send me a private message if interested.

Big Rapids area

Hi,

We are in the Big Rapids area ( 25 mi se) and have a Camp 16'.
We are heading to the U.P. with it on Wed and not back for about 10 days.

Welcome to come see it and get a tour.

Thanks BatDude.

I wouldn't be able to get there before Wed, so it would have to wait until you got back. Perhaps the first week in August. I have a request in for some names from Scamp, so if they come through in between now and then I might find one closer to check out. I know there is one in the area - I've seen it on the road!

I'll let you know after you are back. Thanks!

By the way, Have a great trip!

We have a 1995 Casita we would be willing to show you. We are in Jackson, about 2 and a half hrs away.

Thanks Nancy.
Casita came through today with several folks within an hour or so of me, so I should be set. If something comes up that I can't work out a tour with these guys, I may take you up. I'll let you know.

Not right away but http://www.fiberglassrv.com/forums/f...ble-67391.html

Rally in Algonac would give you a chance to see a lot of models and right down the road from you. Hoping to see Bob's Escape there myself this Sept.

Or if you don't mind a little driving you might be able to hit one of the other rallies. http://www.fiberglassrv.com/forums/f...aps-67269.html

Not uncommon to have a time set aside for wandering around checking out each others campers and modifications. Sort of an open house.

Dang, would love to be there, but I will be in California and Colorado backpacking from Aug 13 through Sept 21 this year.

Perhaps the Lancaster, PA rally in October would work for me. I have very good friends that I visit regularly about 25 minutes from Lancaster, so could combine the trip.
