You have to excuse us, we tend to be helpful. At times perhaps toooooooo helpful! But I think you will find plenty of opinions here on the forum. I think maybe your wording sent us into help mode. Because frankly as I said in my post, the 3 you mentioned are rare-er to find. I think a post with only those 3 options would most likely get peoples hopes up of finding one of the 3. That is why I think most are trying to give other suggestions. I know from experience, I set my goal for a Havasu as well as a few other rare-er brands and wasted a **** load of time keeping my search limited. I know for my response to your question was to try and help you not waste the time I did.

Well I would ask you again......what else is this site about?
This is what the site does,share every ones opinions and experience with the different brands and models.

I guess I do not understand your question really?
To me it seems like this entire site IS the answer to your question!

Also there is no reason to delete this thread that I see.

Asking about different FG egg brands is a bit like asking us to make recommendations between vanilla, french vanilla, and homestyle vanilla. All are delicious to anyone who likes vanilla ice cream.

The best thing for anyone is to find a floor layout that works for them, within the weight limits of their tow vehicle of course. If you don't need a bathroom, that opens up a wide range of little eggs to choose from.

If you buy one and later realize there's something else you would rather have, it's pretty easy usually to sell yours and get a different one. They hold their values well.

I totally agree. But I strongly advocate the French Vanilla. All things being equal, (or not).

Like stray dogs, used fiberglass RVs tend to find their owners. It's a question of what's available and what falls in your lap. I think some considerations you might have, Jack, would be related to your intended use, given your location there in AK. Would you you wanting a camper you can use only during the late spring and summertime or does it need to be insulated against that fierce cold? How much customization are you prepared to do? What's your budget? Does the trailer have to be towable by your existing TV? How far will you be willing to drive to get it?

I haven't scratched the surface here, but I am sure you get the idea.

Regards,

Matt

Ok once again this thread is for people to directly share their opinions. This is what I like. This is what I don't like about my trailer. This is not to help me buy. I just bought a compact and I'm looking into moving to Oregon.

I get you. I had a Burro 17' until recently. I liked the size, as it is wider than most. I didn't like that I had no brakes and no bathroom/shower and no LP fridge in mine. All I had was a little electric dorm fridge, and it would get warm in 3 or 4 hours of travel. So I sold the Burro and am looking for a different trailer.

That is exactly what I'm looking for thank you. Now others that are in the market know not to get a 17' burrow if they are going on long trips. my compact jr. Is awesome except it is kind of tough to get the lil pop top down. But that's the price you pay for having something soooo cut and cozy.

Jack, that's simply not true. What it is, is about personal needs.. not brand. I know one couple that's currently on a several months long trip in a 13 foot Scamp which is much smaller than a 17 foot Burro and it too doesn't have a bathroom. They like their Scamp and are doing just fine. Others however wouldn't. So you see what opinions are worth?

For some people, that 17' Burro would be ideal and they would be very happy. Not everyone needs or wants the features that I decided mattered to me. I bought the Burro with full knowledge of its limitations and decided to try it for a while, and after a couple of years decided I could afford to have more amenities. Donna has it right, it's about personal preferences. And those can change with time and circumstances.

Congratulations on your Compact Jr. From your comments, I'm guessing it must have electric brakes, a bathroom, and an LP fridge for your long trip to Oregon...... ?

Well nevermind about this thread. It was supposed to be so others could know the people here a bit better. And who knows that someone doesn't have the general preferences as the next guy. But nevermind it was just supposed to be a fun topic.

OD,

I understand you "want" opinions. But frankly your taking one opinion and making it gospel! It's not! In my opinion a Burro would be a great trailer for someone in the market if the particular Burro they are looking to purchase meets their camping needs. Just as would any other trailer they are looking to purchase. But saying that someone in the market will now know that Burro's aren't for long trips? HUH? Who stated an opinion of that? Nothing wrong with a burro on a long trip if it's the right trailer for the owner........... See that is what we are all trying to get at.............

personal preference.


I think your trying to gather "opinions" in one thread/post for future references of people in the market for a fiberglass trailer. Kind of like one stop shopping, but unfortunately the world of fiberglass travel trailers isn't Walmart. In my opinion there could never just be one/1 post with opinions on all the brands. That is why the forum has the home page with brand information. As well as there are thousands of discussions with individual opinions through out the forums.

Some great opinions here! Several being, it's about what pleases the individual owner. NOT just one owner. For Mike he found he wanted more, As Donna has pointed out, some owners don't need more.
The thing is, there isn't any one perfect trailer that will meet every persons needs.

Your looking for and I quote a "fun topic", Let me assure you, not every ones opinion is fun. You do know the old saying about opinions don't you? I appreciate what your trying to do. But think it would be better to start with a more specific question and let all the helpful members of this forum help you, in turn future fiberglass travel trailer searchers will learn from what has been posted.

Hi: Obnox's Donk'... My opinion is that everyone deserves an Escape. But then it's not everyone that wants to spend the extra $$$'s for that type of construction in their TT. They haven't been in business long enough to generate a lot of turn overs for those who can't afford new...like me. In my honest opinion we got lucky!!!
When we bought "Our Escape Hatch" I was given the opinion of one and that was "You'll have to have a pickup all the time". So now I have the best one of those too!!! But then again that's only IMHO!!!
