We are so pleased with our queen bed in our Trillium. Without it we just wouldn't use the Trill very much. We had a VW Vanagon Westfalia and the bed was narrow and each night seemed like a week. (The dogs and cats didn't help.). I have bought a couple of very comfy leather chairs and my next project is to remove (with care and attention to structural integrity) the front Groucho and install these chairs. There was a day when Connie and I would take off for many months with a backpack and 1/2" bedroll, but that was then and this is now. The queen bed ate about 16" of our closet, kitchen and floor space, but we have just as much storage, the kitchen utility has not changed and if dancing is the order of the day it now moves outside. We don't feel we have given up anything and the bed is wonderful. The other things that are working are that we cut down our battery current consumption to a very low level so can get a week out of a fully charged battery. We have portable solar but have been leaving it at home.

Bed Size was, by far, our #1 consideration, when we were shopping for a FGRV. We would have been fine with a couple inches off the width of a Queen (60" wide), but a full size (54" wide) was just a bit too narrow. A fairly easy mod enables a Queen width in the Eggcamper, and, if I remember correctly, a couple of other FGRV's can be modified to put the width into or almost into the Queen Size range also.

I suspect all the younger folk are scratching their heads and wondering what Bob and Doug are going on about. Speaking about Bob and Doug....that is another comedy act...Eh Bob?

I use everything. That's part of the beauty of a custom build. You only get what you think you'll want or need.

Favorite features? I'd be hard pressed to name just one. I like that it's built like a tank and I don't really worry about anything breaking. If I had to pick one thing, right now I'd probably pick the solar and battery setup. Over the holiday weekend, I had to move my trailer to the storage yard and leave it unattended for 4 days. Upon return, everything was still humming along and the battery gauge was reading 100%.

My second favorite is the hull design and the heavy thermopane windows. For the first time in about 15 years of using RV's as my worksite lodgings, I can sleep thru the night without being disturbed by noises. It's like sleeping in a vault.

I'll be OK as long as I don't have to join some organization that would have me as a member.....
