Eggcamper from Grandville, MI: How Many?

Greetings all,

I am curious......how many Eggcampers are on the Forum? I know many people call their camper an "eggcamper" or an "egg", but I wondered how many people have the Eggcamper (manufactured in Grandville, Michigan by Jim Palmer).

We bought our 2011 Eggcamper through an RV Dealer, but it was previously owned by a Forum member, Raymond C.

Anyone up for an Eggcamper roll call?

Ours is a 2007, the only one in existance with three tail lights (actually one is a reflector). Ours has been extensively modified, with solar, propane, shelving, drawers, and under-bed storage. We're in NH and we've put a lot of miles on the Egg. Nice camper.

2011 here in Jupiter, FL. We drove up in August of that year to pick it up at the factory.

I have been eyeing a LG a/c unit at Home Depot as an upgrade.

An interesting fact about ours.....this is what the original owner posted on the Forum when he first advertised it for sale:

The weight listed on the title is 1822 lbs. In Ohio a trailer must be weighed before it can be titled. The tongue weight is listed on the trailer itself. It is 350 lbs. Also, this camper has 3" frame rails as opposed to 4" rails on the regular units, hence the lighter tare weight. Jim Palmer had built this camper for himself -- we just happened to want one and this one was ready to go.

Did we really get Jim's almost personal camper?! Wonder if he actually does camp in one!

A few more facts: Our spare tire is located in a well in the front closet by the door. It came with the yellow Bimini canopy, which we love! Because we are only beach camping this summer, we are making do with the 5000 btu AC (swimming in the ocean or relaxing in the shade of our big beach umbrella all throughout the heat of the day), but my husband's plan is to switch AC like Forum member Ryan recently did.

Enjoying hearing from other Eggcamper owners...keep it rolling! 😎

I found these for you. Had to run two different queries because of the spelling of EggCamper or Egg Camper

Wow, I didn't realize there were that many of us.

We bought ours new in 2009. We drove from Pensacola, Fl to the factory to buy one without ever having seen one in person.

We bought our 2010 last year from the original owner. HE did an extensive upgrade job. All we did was some interior color re-do of fabrics and replaced the roof vents with FFs.

Thanks Ken! We bought it already painted on the exterior. Once thing is for sure, we get noticed wherever we go! We summer in Minnesota and winter in Florida .... so the camper colors are Minnesota Gopher and/or Florida Seminole colors and people always ask us if we are part of "the team". We had one family follow us into a gas station because their 5 year old boy wanted to see it up close. The previous owner warned us that the paint job would draw visitors and he was right.

When I talked to Jim at the factory a few years ago he mentioned they sold about 40 trailers a year. Just FYI.
