Propane Option For Eggcamper?

As my DW and I transition from a Truck Camper to one of the Fiberglass Campers, I was wanting to know if Eggcamper offered a Propane model?
I checked their website but couldn't find any reference to it.

The FAQ section of their website mentions "Suburban Gas Appliances" under the warranty section, so they must be available. Give them a call.

I would suggest Pm-ing, Orlen Wolf he's a member of fiberglassrv,com and owns a EggCamper. If I remember correctly he added or had propane added to it. Can be done if not by the manufacture than by a propane installer Sorry I don't know the technical name but I know it can be done. My Mom had a caddy when I was in high school that ran off propane and I know it didn't come standard........ At the top of this page you click on (community) scroll down to member list and find Orlen Wolf send him a pm he should be able to help you figure out how to do it....... Good Luck!

Rather than asking a member here why not simply call EggCamper. Remember that old obsolete thing call a telephone, they still work great.

And nowadays, long distance calling costs very, very little.

Short answer - yes, but he doesn't like to.

Call Jim and ask him how much. When I ordered my EggCamper he reasoned that the current gas appliances had quality issues and talked me out of it. I figured for the camping we were doing that was fine and I could have them retrofitted later as our situation changed.

I don't believe the statement. In our 13 years of RV ownership the propane powered portion has worked just fine. Our RV stove and water heater have been as reliable as our home natural gas powered stove and hot water heater.

We bought our EggCamper all electric and had a propane furnace and cooktop added last year. Had it done locally but propane was on the EggCamper options list when we bought ours.

If my rememberer is correct, EggCamper will plumb for the propane appliances and even do the bedding (install) but they WON'T hook them up because they don't have a "propane certification." ??? As always if you have a question regarding build questions of a particular brand, it's always best to contact the manufacturer. Which I see you're doing Reggie

Ours came as all electric, but I added propane for camping off-grid. I replaced the original water heater for a combination electric/gas and added a gas furnace. We still do our cooking outside, so I didn't bother with a cooktop.

Let us know what you learn from Jim Palmer (company owner). Jim is best reached by phone. There's been a lot of speculation about this and it would be good to have a definitive answer.
