Ok, I'm now one of you. In June I accompanied my friend Cliff to Backus Minn to pick up
his new 16' Scamp
deluxe and help him with the driving. I liked the small fiberglass trailer... A LOT!!! I realized I had several obstacles to overcome: to many hobbies already, Bonnie, my wife, who has never camped before, and that nagging problem
of finances. Problems solved. Put the motorcycle up for sale
, borrowed a 13' Scamp
from a friend for Bonnie to try, and busted the egg shaped piggy bank. Now,what to buy?
I believe there is a trailer out there that is right for yor needs. New? the piggy bank wasn't that fat, so used. My requirements after the 13' Scamp
experience were tall and
wide enough for my 6'4" 230, my wife is always the 'perfect' size, and lots of windows
and oh yah, a bed at least 50" wide. After web searching for info, fgrv was a great souce,
I came up with a Trillium
4500. The next thing I know there is one on ebay only 500 miles
away. Fate? Won it on Sunday night, left at 2:00am to pick it up, was home by 10:00pm.
Bonnie thought it looked good in the dark, wasn't as enthused in the morning light
We had reserved a camp site for a local boat show for the upcoming Thursday, so it
was a 3 day cleaning fest for me. We loaded and left at 9:00pm on Thursday. We had
a wonderful time and have 2 more weekends scheduled for close outings.
This winter I'm planning a complete rebuild so I'll be asking lots of tech
questions in the coming months. Thanks you all for the great community site.
Regards Dave & Bonnie
