Lisa, as you see the reasons for going trailer versus motor home are as varied as are the many rv options to choose from.

Take your time looking especially if your planning to live in it. I agree with the Bigfoot or EggCamper suggestions. Much bigger floor plans than say a Casita.

Gina, did I miss something? Are you back in an egg?

We actually have both, a 13' Scamp and a 40' diesel motorhome. There is, in our opinion, a place for both depending on the type of camping you wish to do. We consider our Scamp our summer camping unit for National Parks as well as other shorter ( 1 or 2 weeks in length). Our motorhome is our second home that we live in during the winter . In short, camp in the Scamp and live in the motorhome when we snowbird in the South. Works for us although "different strokes" as they say.

Get an Eggcamper.
I just have to comment on this. The Scamp marine "rat fur", or Escape "headliner material" or Casita carpet, does not hold odors any more than an EggCamper upholstery or curtains or rugs on the floors hold odors. I don't think any Scamp/Escape/Casita owners would want to camp in a stinky trailer any more than an EggCamper owner. There are usually reasons for wanting an EggCamper or other all fiberglass interior, but it's not because of the interior materials holding smells.

Trailer: Bigfoot 19 ft

When researching a fiberglass trailer, I spoke with a couple I knew via the dog games. They've owned several RV motor homes over the years, and the husband recently bought a Scamp 16 for solo fishing trips. The wife "took over" the Scamp on HT and dog training weekends.

The husband told me that he bought the Scamp because it could get him into areas that the RV could not go. Plus, huge gas savings. He told me that he has more fun with the Scamp than he every had with their RVs. They still use the RV for "family" trips, but that Scamp seems to be occupied most every weekend.

Our next door neighbor drives his Pleasure Way to work and uses it a lot otherwise to go to dinner and shopping. Nice to have a bathroom handy no matter where you are.

My brother gave me this and I drove it home to CT from Indiana last week and it averaged 13.3 to the gallon.
It's fiberglass from the cab back and really comfy. We are taking it camping this weekend!
