Talking

I have only had my Scamp 13 for a short time...so far I like it...I am not sure that my wife is going to like it...she thinks it's too small..my friend just bought a 29 foot rig with a bump out, and of course she spent some time in it just prior to my bringing home Iggy....now she's dubious........I have had some problems with the egg....most have been fixed except for the awning....for what I paid, I expected a higher quality product....the tolerance are poor, I had to grind away in two areas just to make it work and it still is not a unit that is user friendly....if I had it to do over agian, I surely would not have bought the awning. All in all, I am happy with the unit and plan on using is a lot in the next few years.

Bob


LIFE IS GOOD !!!

I could have told you that.....

Now get out and use the trailer, you'll find out it's a delight and if in a campground will draw far more attention than the trailer your wife is lusting after. Check back with your friends in a year or so and do some comparisons...like how much fuel each used to get to your destinations, how often you used your trailers, how long it takes for each to setup/break down....you get the picture

Like what percentage your trailer has depreciated compared to the percentage theirs has...

They'll be considering trading you straight across!

Trailer: 2007 Casita 17 ft Spirit Deluxe

Bought a 1998 Casita 17’ SD new and loved it for a couple of years till we were bitten by the ‘MOTORHOME BUG”. Bought a 2000 Coachmen and after struggling with that monster for 4 years bought a 2005 Scamp 19’ Deluxe 5vr. Due to my age this was going to be our final camper. Well, arthritis hit my wife hard and she could not manage the in/out of the loft very well. So, the Scamp is being sold and we have our last final camper on order, a 2007 Casita 17’ SD. (Can anyone say ‘full circle’)

Hmm,, Wondering...
It would be interesting to see sizes. I keep getting the impression that the number of people with larger trailers vs the number of people with smaller trailers has been going up. It seems to that there are more people with 16' 17, 19, and now the large Big Foot now vs those with 13' or 12'.

I have no desire to go bigger than a 17ft FG unit.All my friends have big trailers but only go to local areas.They won't travel with them due to gas prices.I will stay small and not be afraid to travel where ever i want to go.Gas prices will rise and continue to rise.

To me a 17' is a big trailer.

Trailer: Casita
Posts: 451
The reason(s) I bought the Casita 17"
1-It was the only FG trailer I could find that was 73" min inside height except for the Big Foot, Escape, and the Scamp 5th
2-Scamp burned down
3-The Escape was expensive and a long way off
4-Bigfoot was very expensive and much heavier
5-My son lives in Dallas and I got to drive down for a visit

So that's how the Casita won out

Are there any "new" trailers today that have more than 73" inside and weigh less than my Casita? (about 3000 when loaded up)

If I was to purchase today I would consider the scamp 5th but that about it.

Ron

Trailer: 73 Boler and 76 Surfside
Posts: 6
I'm one of the confused ones. I have a tm14 Surfside and a 13' Boler. I rough it in the Boler and use the Surfside for more civilizd activities. I used to have a 16' stickie. I think it was a Casa Grande or something like that. Its interesting to see how many of the old Bolers and Trills have survived. It wasn''t that long ago in my mind when they first came on the market. I guess the years just fly by. I hope they slow down soon though.

Trailer: Trails West Campster
Posts: 17
I absolutely love my Trails West Campster. It is perfect for us and has gone over some very bumpy roads and steep mountains behind my 4 cylinder subaru.
