Is there anywhere or anyone who rents FGRV so we can try it out before buying one? We want to go to CA for two weeks in April 2008. Have been told we should try one first.

Thanks for the help Donna, but that's a bit too far to pick one up.

I just saw an ad for some place in Monterey, CA, that rents scamps. Google Scamp and rental. But you'd have to come out first then rent it.

You must mean this one: Presidio of Monterey

If you're planning on buying a new Scamp or Casita you're probably inside the lead time window. If ordered today you couldn't get it by April.

If you plan on buying used, buy as soon as you can, use it. If you don't like it, resale value should be close to your purchase cost.

Again if it's Scamp or Casita call Scamp and Casita. Tell them you'd like to look at x model. They'll give you the name, phone number, and address in your area of an owner. Don't be afraid to call and ask the owner to see his/her trailer, they signed up to allow potential buyer to see their trailer. Also most of us like to show and brag about our trailers.

Good Luck

I think this is the MWR site of the Presidio (a military base- U.S.Army) and the rentals are for us military and retired military only... Check before counting on it. Larry

Oh, yeah, if you look at reservations it says something about that.

Too bad.

There is a place in SF that rents those new teardrops, the ones you can stand up in, but that isn't quite the same thing. (Sorry I forgot their name.)

You are in the same state as Casita. (Of course, that doesn't necessarily mean that you are all that close to Rice.) Perhaps a facotry tour might be beneficial to you. At least you will have a chance to sit in and walk around a unit.

We are 1 hour away from Rice. It helped a lot to go see them. Have decided exactly what I want. Now, somebody sell me a Casita Freedom with the captain's chairs (blue) at a fair price! lol

Some military bases, both in the US and overseas, rent Casitas and Scamps. Active duty and retired military, and current civil servants can rent them. We used to rent them before buying our trailer. We now camp at US military bases whenever possible, they are safe and clean.
