EggCamper still "temporarily closed"?

As of today, the EggCamper website still posts the following message: "EGGCAMPER IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED NEW PRODUCTION SCHEDULE YET TO BE ANNOUNCED". It's July! Anyone know if Jim has the shop up and running again and just hasn't updated their website? Or are they truly still closed this late into their manufacturing season? Has anyone with an EggCamper on order communicated with Jim recently about what's going on? Just curious....

Hi Dale,

I talked to Jim about 2 weeks ago on the phone with a few questions on eggcampers. They are still closed. Jim has had a surgery and cannot do the heavy work. He is looking for a transition plan for the production to somebody else. He did not mention a timeline for this business transition nor a restart of production date.

I went to their site and sent an email to the info@eggcamper.com address. Will be interesting to see if I get a return.

Sorry to hear that about Jim. I hope he manages a secure transition, for both the trailers and himself. Be a shame to lose either.

I had contact with the owner about a month ago. I have the same info that Joe has. It has taken longer for him to recover. It really does sound like he wants to get things up and running again soon.

Sounds like he needs a permanent change to lighter weight work. It does happen. It happened to me when I was only 35 years old. You don't always get back the ability to do heavy lifting after a surgery, I did not.

He has my sympathy.

I had wondered about this. I, too, hope he gets up and going again soon. I had wondered after listening to one of the TV video clips about his business if he might be starting look ahead to where the business would go in the future by his comments. Of course, as we age, we all start to look a little ahead to be some what prepared for what may come, maybe an advantage to being younger and feeling invincible. I hope he'll be able to continue working with smaller projects as he is very creative and seems to enjoy that kind of work.

Was glad to find the post, did a search, since I had been wondering also.

Any news on Jim's health and the likelihood of more EggCampers being produced in the future? Does anyone happen to have an accurate number on how many EggCampers Jim produced before he had to shut the shop down?
