After a year spent looking and debating, we've decided to at least delay getting an Egg for several reasons. Firstly, they aren't easy to come by here - haven't seen more than a handful for sale
in the past two years - going off-island to get one and bring it back adds major money to the trailer budget. With my wife, a teacher, taking a year off next year, we've opted to take the bit we have saved and spend it traveling to see some old friends, do a bunch of camping and paddling, and improving our summer cabin.
Since we spend 95% of our holiday time on the island, and are never more than than six hours from the cabin if the tenting gets really nasty, it finally came down to how much we thought we'd use the trailer. Not enough right now to justify the expense and hassle of trailering, we've concluded. There may still be an Egg in our future, but now just isn't the right time.
Just wanted to thank the folks on this board for all the info, and say that if anyone's heading for central Newfoundland around Terra Nova National Park, drop us an email - always a cup of tea, a shower and a spot to park for the night, for civilized folks, if we're around...;->))
