Burro has a center seam. I have a window.
Does that perhaps say that Burro thought through their design a little more carefully, and indeed, you are a lucky person!

I had to laugh when reading the descriptions on the manufacturers website.

"How much does it weight?"

"Kiddie Smoke Alarm" (...it's a "Kidde" alarm - pronounced 'kidda')

The section describing the construction of the trailer has a couple of run-on sentences which lack the use of commas.

I know, I know... I shouldn't judge the trailer itself by playing "grammar police" concerning ther website. But it doesn't look very professional when you have somebody with 7th grade English skills describing your product.

That, and I don't want a smoke alarm made by some little "kiddie."
Hey, do a search on the web. There is a "kiddie" smoke alarm. I have seen them in stores here in the south.

I just did. Every one I saw that said "kiddie" was actually a "kidde".

Maybe they got one of their local elementary school kids to create their website for them at no cost, maybe English is their second language, maybe they forgot to edit before posting, maybe they didn't have their morning coffee before creating the site...er...maybe they trained their cat to write and publish webpages?

(The elementary/high school English teacher in me is cringing)

Looks like a neat trailer, though. They certainly seem to have some great skills when it comes to building a fiberglass RV.

I think most moulded fiberglass trailers have at least one opening across the seam; for instance, it is the door in my Boler. Such openings do pose structural and finishing challenges, and it makes sense to me to minimize them. I can't imagine that I would care much if my Boler had two windows flanking the rear centreline, but the Eggcamper has none at all. I think the lack of rear windows has more to do with the curve than the seam.

I find the presentation of information on many websites to be disappointing, and while I do take it as an indication of how the company operates, I try to remember that they may just be concentrating on things that really matter, and forgetting the importance of their appearance to customers.

Ditto Byron's comment on "Kiddie"... just because someone else has it wrong, doesn't make it right. It does make it hard to search for information.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

Maybe that mystery grille is for an AC window-type unit?
That makes sense. Although it's not a great place for an air conditioner, it would work, and the grill fits.

It wouldn't necessarily be a window-type unit; there are RV A/Cs designed to mount this way, usually referred to as a "closet mount", although they are usually near the ceiling, for better cooling performance. Didn't Casita do this?

No back <strike>OR front large window.</strike> While the interior is nice, not only would I miss the window for the view, I need a large escape route.

Ok, a further look at the floor plan explains why no large front window. But I do like a window in the bathroom. Is there a problem with a window in the bath that I missed?

Rounded cabinet doors are nice.

There was an interesting article on eggcamper in the Grand Rapids Press last week. The electronic version is here:

While I can see a reason for concern that a manufacturer's name was not spelled correctly, I sure wouldn't want an English teacher building my trailer either. Some of the posts almost made me not want to post again thinking of how my grammar might not measure up to the expectations of some. I was an excellent student in English but that was over 35 years ago. I love the Eggcamper as it has such clean lines and without the "rat fur" or carpeting on the walls. Also, I grew up just a couple hours from where they manufacture them - sort of makes them my "home boys". Cathy P.

Don't worry to much about the grammar or spelling parts of a post Cathy...I don't Part of what I do here on FiberglassRV is cruise the posts looking for spelling mistakes that would be a problem for "Search." Grammar isn't anything to worry about...after all this is a World Wide Forum

Jim has a lot of irons in the fire. He's sort of a renaissance man. His interest lies in producing the best-built fiberglass trailers possible, probably not in web design.

From the photos I've seen of his trailers and my correspondence with him over the past year, I think that anyone who buys one of these is going to get top-notch fit, finish, materials, and construction in a really nice package.
