Ellen, I didn't forget the Amerigo. The poll doesn't have room for all of the brands. Those not listed should vote "other" and post a comment.

Roger was listing his own personal set of choices... He's owned 'em all! (Except for Amerigo and a whole bunch of others.)

Trailer: Hunter Compact II
Posts: 154
My camping rig prior to the pop-top Compact II was also a molded fiberglass pop-top, a 1978 Toyota Chinook micro mini motorhome. The advantage of the trailer is I can set up camp and use the tow vehicle to do my running around.

Trailer: 1991 16 ft Casita Freedom Deluxe

I don't have an egg - yet. The stick-built Scotty I have now is my first camper. I was looking for a molded fiberglass trailer for some time, but they are not very plentiful in this area as they seem to be out West. I figured it would be better to get what was available now, and keep my eyes open for an egg when the right one comes around. My Scotty is only 12-1/2' long, so when I step up to a 13 footer it will seem big.
I do a lot of lurking and learning - thanks for letting me hang around!

I didn't have a TT before the Casita but grew up making trips and spending summers in the folks' Airstream 31's (they had four between '67 & '85).
Those rigs were great for us kids but for my parents they were a HASSLE (especially through the two gas crunches).
When I vacated my house and prepared to move aboard (got rid of stuff), I came across countless sketches I made as a teenager of minimal living units. Basically the layout of the trailer I have now, imagined as a boat, a motorhome, a treehouse, even a cable car!
I've been aboard the Casita for a year and a half now and have too much fun and admire the thing every day.
After 20 years of not having an RV, my Dad (now 79) wants to order another Casita, after seeing how easy it works for me.
Simplicity RULES!

Voted other - purchased a 1972 Amerigo FG-16 two weeks ago from a guy in my squadron. Been doing some work on it - battery, carpet, general clean-up, pressure wash, wheel bearings, etc. and will tow it home this weekend (Nebraska to Texas).

Thanks Mary! BTW, see you're in central TX - I'm just outside Dallas. If you (or anyone else) have any recommendations for weekend camp places I'd sure appreciate it. It'll be me, wife and two sons (9 & 6). I'll get some pics when I get back. Thanks! Steve

Hi Steveh......another Texas person here(I live on the Gulf Coast) . Since I am not sure were you live.(Just outside Dallas,covers lots of ground,) I would like to suggest this sight http://www.campingfriend.com/taco/ these are private owned campgrounds and we have always found them to be clean and friendly. Also try this one http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/spdest/ We like Livingston State Park.

Best of luck to you and many Happy days of camping.........Lynn

Trailer: 84 16 ft Scamp

First trailer was 13 ft. stick built that slept 4. Pulled it with 1966 Corvair Coupe. It had a gas/110 Vac refer, 2-burner gas cook top with oven, sink with potable water tank), clothes closet, toilet with holding tank, but no airconditioner.

Latter we had a 1976 Chevrolet Camper Van . About the same size in side as the Casita, but slept 5 (made a custom bed for youngest in the cab). It had a gas/110 Vac refer, 2-burner gas cook top with oven, sink (no potable water tank), clothes closet with porta-pottie, and room airconditioner install in rear above door window.

Then came "The Egg".
We have considered something similar to your Camper Van. Noticed you made some comparisons, but didn't include what it was that caused you to make the change from a Van to a FGRV, and whether those (or that) perceived advantages are still valid after a period of ownership.

I voted 'Escape' for my current trailer (although I won't actually take delivery until late August). Yay!!!

My last camper was an '84 VW Westfalia camper van - a very cool little camper.
