I am looking into an EggCamper. They have only made about 100 so far and since it is only 5 1/2 hours from me in Columbus, Ohio, it behooves me to visit the factory. I was serious about the Trill Outback but I can't see one to form an oppinion. If you own one or have seen one, please express your feelings about them before I make the trip up there.
I have one and am very happy with it. I've had it almost a year now. I would recommend contacting Jim, the guy who owns the company, with any questions and take the time to visit the factory. It's interesting to see a naked egg up on jackstands while all the parts are being installed.
I bought the first "kit" version, a unit with no appliances, electrical
wiring, water and propane
plumbing and no bathroom/shower. It was pretty much a blank canvas. You can see some pictures on my post (EggCamper Kit Buildout). I haven't added anything to the post lately but I've done a lot more on the buildout. I've been camping in it several times even though the cabinet doors are not installed and there is still some electrical
work to do.
If you haven't done any RV rebuilds or repairs and aren't into construction work I would not recommend buying a kit. Get one that's completely built out. If you are into DIY then it's a great way to set things up the way you want them.
The decision of an electric egg or the more conventional electric and propane
system depends on your camping style. If you only camp in campgrounds with full hookups you can easily use an electric only refrigerator
and a cube heater for heat. If you like to go boondocking
then a combination of 12VDC, 120VAC and propane
will give you flexibility although you could still run everything in an electric egg with a Honda Eu2000 generator
. The only problem there is that some folks frown on using generators in dispersed camping areas.
Any way, the short answer to your question I'm happy with my EggCamper
and haven't seen any posts on this forum from folks who are unhappy with theirs. One indication of the level of satisfaction is that I've only seen one used EggCamper for sale
and that was due to a family dissolution where they were selling everything.
