Maybe, just maybe, with the rising gas prices, one of the fiberglass places will start making a really small motor home like the old Scamp. It looked like the perfect size. The one Bigfoot makes is way too big, IMHO.

The trend for years has been, bigger, bigger, and biggest, but there are people who not only want to keep it small, there are ones now looking to downsize.

We can hope

IMO, nice design poorly executed. I sat in one at an RV show. After 6 minutes my behind was so sore from the cheap foam cushions I had to wonder about the build quality in the rest of the unit. It was really pretty though.

Yes, expensive and still a little too big --- a little too long, and wider than I want for Baja. This Tiger Motorhome is more what I would like, except I want:

1. For it to be built on a Toyota 4x4 --- one of the bigger ones that are in the works
2. I want molded fiberglass, like the Bigfoot campers.
3. I don't want to spend all of my retirement to pay for it.

No, I don't want a Bigfoot camper---I want everything in one piece.

Well, I can continue to dream.

Looks quite a bit like the molded fiberglass Roamer truck campers. It would probably be cheaper to modify the back wall of a truck to allow entry into that type of camper than getting the one piece featured here. Roamer's website is http://www.roamerrv.com I get the impression they are a small shop that thrives on word of mouth.

Don't laugh, there is a guy in BC that has a Boler mounted to the back of a 3/4 ton truck. It looks rather odd.

I wonder about the economics of any motorhome. Purchasing a new motorhome of any kind seems to me like a big loss. Depreciation has to be huge, let alone all the maintenance.

Just thinking out loud.

Edited the earlier posts to add the Roamer website link.

Elaborating on what I said earlier, I'm thinking it would be more economical to go the Roamer route than trying to retrofit an old Scamp moho shell atop a newer truck. When the truck dies you just move your camper to a differnet truck; hopefully a more modern, more efficient truck.

after having many pickup campers and two moterhomes over the year I would never go back.

the 25' Sunlite and the 13' Burro are much nicer to travel with.
You find a park leave the trailer behind and sightsee and get around with eaze ( or as much eaze as you can in a Surburban )

Our trip to washington state and oregon would not been near as enjoyable with a moterhome.
