Our first trailer was a 13' Casita and we loved it. But when we got the chance at a good buy on a used 16' we jumped at it. Reasons? We could leave the bed made up and still have a place to sit, eat, read, etc., and when we wanted to bring a grandchild camping, we had the extra bed available and didn't need to carry a tent. Most of the advantages of a FG over a T@B have been mentioned, But I'd like to add that having a fully functional kitchen inside in bad weather is a huge plus for us even though we usually prefer cooking outside, as well as the ability to stop anywhere and duck inside for lunch or a quick cup of coffee, regardless of the weather.

It sounds to me like the only big advantage of the clamshell is the outdoor cooking (everything right there in the rear hatch), and all the other advantages go to the Scamp.

And if the weather is bad, the T@b owner will be going hungry (or going out to eat). The good possibility of running into some bad weather on any given camping trip is the main reason I stopped tenting! I seemed to get 1 or 2 days of yucky weather on almost every extended trip.

We did a lot of work 2 years ago before selecting a 2012 Park Liner. It has a queen size bed, bunks fitting a 6' person are an option as is the shower. They now have placed the AC on top which will make a huge difference and the heater works great for boon docking. You can order and at times find a used one as we did in Georgia-even though we live 1 hour and 15 minutes from the manufacturer. The other major features for us was the height at 6'4" inside (about 4' wide) and the 21 liner feet of cabinet space. These features along with a place for a trailer hitch already in the frame made it a perfect choice. Take a look.

You may want to visit Townsend TN the 17 and 18 for the Eggscursion to continue your research. Fiberglass eggsters are always willing to open their doors for you to view their campers!

You asked = so here is my answer. We purchased a T@B..On the way home from buying it the rubber side molding that goes over the top blew off. (one side) Fortunately I saw it leave the T@B. We had to go miles down I-40 before we could go back. Picked it up and headed home. I put it back on the trailer. I used sheet metal screws to be sure it would not blow off again. Also, I did the same for the other side. May not be as fortunate next time to see it blow off or come detached.. Did not like the way the tongue jack was folded up. Came down even though it was attached correctly. From now on we will always have a casita. Mistake for us to even consider a T@B. You asked===

We first saw the T@B with the inside kitchen at an endurance race and decided we needed to graduate from a tent to something that we could pull behind our car. We researched and were between a teardrop and a T@B inside vs outside cooking, until we came across the Scamp. My husband is 6'2" and he can stand up in the Scamp... that was not an option in a teardrop or T@B and the price of the 13' Scamp was close to half of the T@B we were considering. After two years of having the Scamp we love it!! We primarily cook outdoors when camping... over the fire, so I wouldn't want my camper close enough to the open flames for indoor or outdoor kitchens to be useful.

The t@bs are nicely appointed. I know of several campers that love them. I think that they're very cute, and love the color choices.
That being said,,, I'd take a fiberglass egg anyday over a t@b.

Eggcamper & Trillium choices also

Hi Carlton,
We looked at Scamp, Casita, R-Pod, and Trillium before buying a 2012 used Eggcamper. We almost bought the new Trillium and probably would have if the good used Eggcamper had not come along. If you are limited to $10k --that will limit choices.
Some of the Eggcamper attributes are: Full size, full length Bed. And the Bed can easily be modified to a (almost) Queen size. Up to 87" interior width, so no "short" beds no matter what you do in the bed dept. The Bed was our #1 consideration--need to get a good nights sleep. Other items include the ability to leave the bed in place and use the 2 person dinette. It has a good Toilet & Shower. Height of about 6'7". It's taller and wider than Scamp and Casita, which are fine trailers. The only possible down side is that Eggcamper is all-electric. But you can install a propane system in it, as some folks have done. I actually installed a propane system in ours, which we've never used--but if you are going to do some serious dry camping you may want propane, and a 3 way fridge.
The Trillium also has good interior height (6'2")and an (almost) full size bed.
Western Mass.

If you need more head room than a 17' Casita (6'2") I think the best choice is a Parkliner. My grandson is 6'5" and found it quite comfortable.

We bought a new T@G Max last summer and kept it for a few months before deciding on our current ParkLiner. The T@G was a phenomenal little trailer--excellent build and quality. Our issue was that it was simply too small for our needs. If you love tent camping and all that goes with it but want more comfort then the T@G would be a step up from a tent. The T@B another step up for standing room inside. For me comparing the Little Guys to eggs are like comparing apples to oranges. Just a matter of what your individual needs are. Do your research! Sit in them all. Best wishes...
