Here it is 2 years later - we're looking for a used trailer. Do you know any place that posts used Eggcampers? They look amazing!


David and Michele
I visit here every day, but rarely have posted a couple of times, but.. I just pulled home a new eggcamper myself the week of Thanksgiving from the factory, here to my home in East Texas. I got the kit version and picked up some of the harder to find items I wanted and to go in it, like the shower parts/restroom items. I got several items off ebay that was identical to what the ready to go trailer has, at good prices. I have only seen one of these used, and it was in Houston, and was being sold due to a splitting of households...!!
They have been in production too short of time. I have had two burros 13' and this is the nearest thing to a Large Burro I could find. It is all gelcoat inside . I am working on mine now. I can not wait to take it on the first trip. I fly radio control models and it will take the place of my small Burro, on trips I go on during my flying season. It is a nice unit. Pulled very well behind my ford 150. You would not be dissapointed with this trailer. Not having windows on the rear is not issue at all for me. It makes for a very nice atmosphere and the other windows are plenty big enough, and allows for more privacy with the enclosed, very smooth lines of the rear area also.

Weldon, we can't wait to see pictures and hear all about it. I'd love to know how doable the kit version is. This unit has intrigued me since I first heard about it. Does the kit come with the molded interior? Hopefully, our pathes will cross in Texas once you get it on the road.

Although others may disagree, I view the eggcamper as the next generation Burro. It seems to have just enough extra girth without making it that much bigger.

Are you going with the 12V compressor fridge or you going to install a three way (or something else?). What about the air conditioner? Being here in Texas, I know you gotta have one of those. Please, do tell!

Hey. It's great to see who bought another EggCamper kit. Jim told me there was one sold in Texas and one in Tennessee as well as mine in Colorado.

Weldon - did you get floorplan A or B? Also, get with me on how to install the shower drain plumbing. I found a way to get it done without cutting the triangle area out of the closet wall. Everything is hidden behind the wall. Another thing I did was install a union on the top of the waste water tank so, if I ever have to drop the gray water tank for repairs, I don't have to cut any pipes.

BTW - I also bought the shower floor / black water tank assembly as well as the fresh water and gray water tanks from Jim. I figured that way I would get something that fit without a lot of looking around.

I finally finished installing the appliances. It was a real jigsaw puzzle to get the refrigerator, furnace, stove and sink into the area under the counter but I finally got it worked out. That was compounded by the fact that I wanted to install a deeper sink than the stock one.

I haven't had a chance to take any pictures yet. Will do so after it warms up and I can get the egg out in the sun. It's currently in a corner of the garage while I have all the power tools spread out in the rest of the garage bay.

One other comment - I would not recommend the kit version of the EggCamper to anyone who hasn't had some experience in construction work as well as electrical work. It would be great project for someone who has restored a camper in the past or who is really into DIY. It also is a real time sink to do all the work. But, if you have the experience, it is fun to build it your way. I'm glad Jim offered the kit version.
