We know that WE know the substance of this article found in today's NY Times.
Nice to be ahead of the curve, yes?

Enjoy reading about something you know about already...
Crampers rock!

No mention of a single Fiberglass trailer though, strange. Oh well, they don't know what they are missing =)

Yip!
Hi Doug... nice that you remember the pups and us. Will we see you sometime this fall somewhere south of the border?

And to Booker, who astutely notes no mention of Fiberglass RVs in the article, I wondered the same. Where is the disconnect? On the reporter's end, or are Glass Egg manufacturers not putting out relevant PR to the press? Seems like a great time to advance the joys of travelling and cramping small. What was the cost of that pop-up tent - no kitchen, no mattress, no potty or shower? Still in the thousands of dollars!!! Per square foot, our Casitas, Bolers, Burros, Scamps, Trills, etc offer great value... and with gas prices high, more especially now than ever.

Somewhat off subject, that reminds me of a story I heard earlier today. Friend has a $1200 Maltese pup. Wanted to adopt another - Maltese rescue - a "bargain" at only $200, but the pup was 1000 miles - ONE THOUSAND MILES - away! Friend drives out and back to pick up the rescue... not such a "bargain" after all. Ah, still, she loves her new lil fuzzybutt. What we won't do for "Man's best friend."

And BTW, any one doing a gas price check around the country on this web site? We're paying $3.99gal on Whidbey Island, but it's down to $3.87/gal over in America, north of Seattle.

Cheers all, and Happy Cramping!
Sharen

Hi Sharen
We're paying 1.28/L here which works out to about $4.85/gal if it makes you feel better... and that's down from earlier in summer.

It is surprising more people aren't getting into fiberglass trailers at those prices. I think a lot of it has to do with the few numbers of new FG manufactures results in an uneducated marketplace, especially as you get further away from where the trailers are being built. Maybe people are hesitant to take on 'vintage' FGRV's because they think 'vintage' = old or unreliable.
