Full circle, why going away from the scamp type to the casita??? butch.
Guess the main reason is that we live about 130 miles from Rice ... and then because we enjoyed our first Casita (98C17SD).

Didn't see where to "add a comment" so will do so here. Our FGRV is an EggCamper. Just got it last month. Bought it with an unfinished interior and no appliances, shower/bathroom etc. as the EggCamper Kit. As far as I know I bought the first kit version sold. I'm having a lot of fun outfitting it the way I want. Should be finished by spring for the summer camping season.

BTW - the first question most people ask is how much it weighs. Weight as purchased was 1500 pounds. It towed great from Michigan to Colorado.

Well the Poll didn't let me select more than one previously owned fiberglass trailer. I started with a 13ft Burro, had a 16ft Burro, a 19ft Scamp 5th wheel, and now a Casita 17 LD. I also own a 25ft Airstream and a 1973 22ft vintage Argosy, made by Airstream. We now are downsizing from the 2004 25ft Airstream to the Casita.

Thumbs up

Howdy, I just been tent camping but now want to try an Egg type of trailer. I'm kind ah leaning towards an Escape but I wonder if I will fit the bed and inside shower. I'm 6'3" and 270 lbs. The Casita 17' Liberty is my second choice as it has a Big bed. Both have an outside shower if I don't fit in the inside one. My wife and I are seniors and want to be Snowbirds boondocking in the winter in the Southwest states and then coming back to Oregon for the summer. Thanks, blackrockjoe

The Escape is a good trailer but the bathroom will be too small for you to stand up for a shower. I am 5'10" or so and sit in the shower, which works out fine for me. We use the outside shower for the kids and gear.

You are within a days drive of the factory and someone in Eureka California has an Escape, maybe you could visit for a peek.

We had 17' Casita FD that we bought new on 2005. While wintering in Texas last year the wife decided we needed a little more room. Decided to order 19' Scamp 5th Wheel. We now are in Florida in it and like it very much. We did stop in Hohenwald, Tenn on way south and looked at the new 17' Oliver. It is a little pricey but it is quite impressive. If they come out with 20 footer we might just try one of those. We used the Casita on trip to Alaska and lived in it full time for over a year. We will stay in the Scamp until May.

My first was a 1985 32ft fifth wheel. Bought it about 4 yrs ago and used it as a FT living quarter while I decided if I was gonna stay in Las Cruces. Well I did stay and met Laura and now we have our Casita!

Mine is a 07C17SD and is the second one I have had, the previous one was a 98.

We came back to fiberglass trailers from a motorhome because, while it was wonderful when you got there, it was not near as much fun getting there! We towed a car which meant you can forget backing up, it was difficult to make a U turn to get back to that perfect picture taking spot you just saw and there were many places you were just too big to fit into.

I also find that most of the people you meet with small fiberglass trailers just seem to be more down to earth and friendler and that is who we enjoy being with.

Over the past 35 years we've owned a fold down and a teardrop (as well as 3 motorhomes). We're really looking forward to this summer when we can head for the mountains. No toilet in the teatdrop, of course, so our new 13' Scamp with a front bath will be a welcome change at 2:00 am when mother nature calls and we're 2 blocks from the toilet house!

Trailer: 2000 Northern Lite (The TARDIS)
Posts: 135
We picked up our first FGRV 10 days ago and have spent the last week getting aquainted. It's a 2000 Northern Lite. We'll be taking it on an over-nighter this weekend and are very much looking forward to it. Our previous trailer was a 22ft 1995 Terry Expo. It was conventional in construction save for the aluminum framework. It has served us well for 13 years but now that the kids have grown up, we wanted to downsize.
