My first Travel Trailer was a Hard sided Apache Roamer. I liked it for the most part, but my Bigfoot 17.5 has some huge advantages: It's not a hassle to put up in a rainstorm, you can pull over at a rest stop and have lunch in the trailer (you can't really put up the Apache quickly, so it's not really worth it for an hour or so), you can leave the beds set up while travelling (on the Apache you have to take all of the bedding off the beds and break down the whole trailer before you move to another spot or travel anywhere), and the Bigfoot is airtight and watertight-on th Apache when it was really windy and dusty the dust blew in through many cracks that were invisible to the eye and got on everything (It leaked a little in hard rainstorms too). On the plus side-with the beds pushed out there was a lot more sleeping room in the Apache (It could easily sleep 7), it was super easy to tow -since it was below the level of the back of the truck you could even watch traffic out of the back window and didn't have to rely solely on the mirrors, and it barely affected gas mileage. It was also a lot cheaper than a Fiberglass RV to buy.

Saw a Casita (? TV) at about 1pm today traveling west on I 90 by Dakota, MN. Then while passing through Houston, MN on US 16 at 1:20pm we saw a 16 ft Scamp hooked to a black Jeep Grand Cherokee parked outside the Sawmill Inn (no owners in sight). It was a good day for spotting some eggs!

Biggie, that may have been us you saw going west on I 90. We were headed to Mount Rushmore and would have been there about that time.

We saw a few fiberglass eggs on our trip to Mount Rushmore from Ohio. We saw a Casita, east bound, at the 92 mile marker on I 90 in MN on the 4th, a scamp fifth wheel, east bound at the 312 mile marker on I 90 in SD, the same day. We saw an egg we could not identify from the road, parked in the Bad Lands, near Interior on the 4th, also. It had a small front window. Later in the week, we saw a Casita parked near Rough Neck Falls in Spearfish Canyon.

Thursday, when we were leaving the area and headed home, we pulled into an overlook in the Bad Lands and met theTravelkids on their way to Alaska in their 17 SD. We spend some time touring each others trailers and we learned some mods we will be doing shortly. Safe travels to them as they head to Alaska. Terry R.

Terry R - Glad you saw the post! Hope you enjoyed your trip west to South Dakota! We were at Mount Rushmore/Badlands last July and enjoyed the scenery and history there immensely. Wishing you safe travels for the summer.

Recently my wife and I completed a trip from San Antonio, TX. To Spokane, WA. and back by car. We stopped and looked at many State and Local parks. When we were in Idaho and stopped at the State Park in Winchester. Imagine our surprise when we saw a Casita 17 Sitting in the CAMP HOST spot.

Talking to the owners we found out that they had down sized to the Casita and were very happy with it. They also told us that they had signed up to be the CAMP HOST for two months.

Their spot not only had water and electric, but sewage as well. All the other spots had the power and water, but you had to either leave and move to a dump spot, near town, or empty your black water tank into a little blue tank with wheels, get into your car , truck, or SUV, and dump it at the dump station. A Pain-ITA to say the least.

So you don't need a big house on wheeels to be a CAMP HOST, and as we saw from most camping areas, the HOST spot is a lot better fitted out.

Being a CAMP HOST in a small camper would be easier if there is a town close by, as this State Park very near Winchester, ID. is, as you will probably have to stock up on food a bit more often than the big houses on wheels, but there is no reason you can't do the job.

Small FIBERGLASS EGGS are here to stay, and can do everthing that the HOUSES ON WHEELS can do, except make you go broke as quickly
