Got in what may be my last camping trip of the season with a 4 night trip to Turkey Run State Park in western Indiana. Nice park!! Next week is foot surgery.....
Turkey Run has nice trails, sandstone, canoeing, and tons of covered bridges and small towns to visit!! Highly recommend it!
Everything went very well on the EggCamper
. I can't emphasize enough how the roominess has changed the entire feel of the trip. So there are LOTS of luxuries we miss about the Casita
- but we feel the roominess has more than made up for it. I guess you get used to what you have. With limited storage, we are finding having stuff in plastic bins is great. Remember 2 years ago we were Tahoe camping....ha.
So just a few things about the egg.
The roof vent actually lifted to the open position on the highway!! You know how if you leave a vent open, it can bounce shut? Well I must not have had it closed tight, and air got under it causing the vibrations. At a rest area in rain - I see its almost wide open - yikes!!! I closed it and made sure it was tight and it stayed closed after that. I'm sure it was closed when we left home too because it was raining then too! No biggy - just make sure you have the handle cranked closed tight!
worked great! Set on maybe 3.75 to 4 out of 5. But we had 30a plug in camp sight - so no battery
in mid-high 30's and freezer frozen!
And the A/C - well all the bitching about the A/C I did earlier - it worked just fine!! I'm guessing 90+ in a full sun site is too much, but 87 in a part sun and part shaded site and she kept up just fine! I'll have to reconsider an A/C upgrade - maybe use the egg for a year, then decide.
One last thing - I think we decided to take off the decals. I pulled the ".com" off the back as a test. Came off easily enough, but its definitely whiter under those letters. I need to find out what to do to brighten the white so it doesn't show the letters so much. Once I do that, I can strip the rest. I figure its best to do it now when its 3 years old than 5 years from now and much harder to blend new vs old white.
Besides that, all was great!! Enjoyed the Egg and Turkey Run a lot!
