The no-propane configuration for rental is not a new idea...
EggCamper... New trailer brand coming soon!
and I understand the reasoning. After some reading of the site I realized that there is
, but that's the only thing for cooking, and they suggest you bring your own barbeque or stove. The heat is electric - a heat strip in the A/C unit.
I found that some of the towing requirements were not really clear, and I called them for clarification. I reached the owner, Bill, who was quite helpful.
The "class A
term didn't mean anything to me, but this is intended to echo Scamp's recommendation, which is intended to avoid inadequate setups, such as some of the old bumper hitches.
They are also following Scamp's suggestions about suitable tow vehicles, and I expressed my concern that a trailer which weighs 1100 lb empty is certainly heavy enough to need brakes
with many vehicles. These units do not have brakes
says they are not needed; Scamp
would not supply the hydraulic surge brakes
which Bill and I agree would be suitable for rental use (where the tug would not likely be set up with an electric brake controller). The whole "what can you tow with" subject doesn't need to be rehashed here, but "a 4 cylinder car will easily tow" these is way too general a statement for me.
A 6-pin round connector
is rare compared to a 4-pin flat... but that's the Scamp
standard. They do reportedly work with a flat-4 connector, using an adapter, so I can only assume they have combined brake/turn signals.
Bill had not heard of the U-Haul
rental eggs, and I directed him here to FiberglassRV, so we may see him show up in the forum...
