I need someone's help making a decision....After giving up on an Airstream Bambi ($$$) I decided on a TAB until my search landed on FGRVs with bathrooms. I narrowed it down to Scamp, Casita and Trillium. Ruled out the Scamp and Casita since they don't seem to have a nice window in the front when the bathroom is installed. The Trillium/Outback has one but I am not sure which one to focus on. The Outback is made in Canada and made by Team Trillium. Then the Trillium is made in Sacramento, California. Which company should I go with? Who makes a better rig? Which has a nicer interior? Do both have bathrooms? I can't find one in Ohio to look at. What should I do???? I appreciate your help...this is my first post.

I can not help on the Trillium-Outback Canada or US question, however, Scamp has a side bathroom option, Layout 4 which would still give you a large window in front.

The US Trillium was/is using the fiberglass bodies that are made by Team Trillium in Calgary. I have yet to see a photo of the US made one .

I checked out the floor plan and you are right but I forgot to mention I am looking at a 13 footer which doesn't give that option....could it?

Concerning a 13' Scamp, they seem to make one with a front bath, but not with a large window in front. But does the Trillium have a shower in their bathroom? I believe the 13' Scamps have showers (?). From a Bambi or TAB to a 13' Fiberglass, a big jump in down sizing. Good luck in your search.

PS: Backus, MN would be closer to Ohio in picking one up, just a thought. Call them, they might even put one together with the large window in the front for you....might be worth a try? 800.346.4962 (toll free)

Chester, how about the Escapes, do they come in 13', do they have bath/showers, with larger front windows? I know the Escapes are really quality trailers. I got to see a 5th wheel when it came through Las Cruces last year. Very nice workmanship.

I don't think Escapes come in 13ft. but I sure am looking for something with an upscale contemporary look...not crazy about oak cabinets and carpeting. I seem to be attracted to euro models like the IBOD but it may be pricey and I cant seem to find any euro caravans sold in the us or canada....thats why we like the Bambi and the TAB but one is too expensive and the other no bathroom....help!

Get a Scamp without the carpet, paint the cabinet doors after you pick it up. The cabinets themselves are white fiberglass. Or, I believe there is a travel trailer made in China with an upscale contemporary look, but can not remember the name, nor the length of them.

I found them: http://www.roamingtimes.com/a/consumer/ica...vel-trailer.asp

I did not look to see if they come in 13'.

No they do not make a 13ft. My 17ft Escape is fully loaded. At present time they just make the two models.

Well, it seems the iCamp Elite is just a little longer than 13', 14'7" long, and they do NOT have a front window. But they do have a shower and the bathroom is in the rear. It looks a lot like the TABs and are very upscale contemporary looking. Happy hunting.

Oh, yes, it is NOT fiberglass......you can not beat molded fiberglass trailers! But again it is upscale looking! Remember Retro is also in these days. Ha!

Thanks, Chester.

scamp allows you to order without the sidewall carpet? Has anyone else ever heard that this was possible? I never have, it's interesting.

Last I heard, they are now two completely separate entities each making their own everything .
