Carolyn, I am sure that is the same one, Tallmadge road is 18, I think, and it would have been right about the area you are describing. It was in the back when I saw it.

I have to get off here because we are getting the Casita all ready to head out. We will either start out after my husband gets home from work Wed., doubtful, or very early Thursday morning. We will be hitched and ready to go on Wed., either way.

I too, am counting the days. I keep my grandkids a lot and we have not been able to go much this year. Terry R

I don't even have a trailer yet, and I am hooked!! Since I found all of this, it's all I think about, I am driving my boyfriend crazy (so he says) but he gets the same way about computer stuff so we are just evening out

Nancy, I have the bright yellow one that I purchased in Bemidji, MN ready for sale. I finally found it in the Jeep when I was somewhere out in Wisconsin. Obviously being bright yellow didn't help.

What's even worse than a fiberglass trailer addiction, is having that plus an old VW addiction! We spend every trip looking for trailers and old VW Beetles, buses, and pick-ups. Makes for fun trips... "Oh, there's one! One what? Should we turn around to look again? Do you think it's for sale?"

When driving, do you look behind old barns to see if there's a FG there?
You're hooked.
Do you look to see if there's an egg in someones driveway or yard?
You're hooked.
Do you strain your eyes to see if that's an egg a mile ahead of you?
You're hooked
Do you smile and wave frantically when you pass another egg?
You're hooked.
Do you knock on a door and ask to look at an egg?
You're hooked.
When you walk past yours, do you reack out and touch it?
You're hooked.
Do you wash and polish it more than your car?
You're hooked.
Is the inside cleaner and neater than your house?
You're hooked.
Do you talk about it with ALL of your friends?
All the time?
YEP, YOU"RE HOOKED!!!!!

Yes to almost all question ! But It's getting worse...I try to find a egg for my step brother and another one for my son (He have no car and no driving license yet!) I just mist a Trillium 4500 in good condition ($2500) doooooooo! And... maybe another one for the fun to restore and reselling it

Yes I have a problem......
the waving frantically at another FG on the road ..yes thats me
waxing the trailer...yup
There is a Scamp sitting down the road from me at a boat storage place. The first time I had seen a scamp befor I owned mine. So of course me, I go down there ask about it and am told NO not for sale/get in line everyone wants this one. Fast forward a few months i find my own Scamp and as I am fixing my door realize I can't remember how the hinge setup goes back together so I go down the road to the boat place and the boat guy lets me take a few refrence pictures...he kinda looks around..."ya wannna look inside"...OH MY GOSH DO I EVER so we sneak a peek inside.
So fast forward again a few months and I see the little Scamp returning from an adventure, so I decide to follow him back to the boat storage place ...he was not a fellow fiberglasser and as we were talking about different features I said oh I remeber that from yours...he kinda looks at me and then of course I have to explain that I was doing major renovation to my trailer so the boat guy let me peek in not so sure he was amused by that...so I am doing a quick backtrack and lavished him with praise becasue if I hadn't had this trailer for reference I would have been up a creek...that seemed to appease him.

My husband doesn't care to camp, but the other day I get a call from him and he says "I see one"..me all puzzled..... see what...... him " a trailer its a casita with air conditioning and a blue stripe." me OH okay...him...aren't you going to post that in the sightings board on your forum? so even thou he doesn't care to camp he's a good trailer spotter

I used to be a "lot boy" for a place in downtown seattle called Fat City it is a German car repair shop....years ago he had BOXES of spare parts in a storage room for old volkswagons...just thought I'd share this tidbit of info, not sure if he still has all that stuff but I always thought it was a shame that it was stored away not getting used (downtown Seattle)
