Lessee... I have an Airstream 34' and a Scamp 16' here. I'm buying another Scamp 5th wheel right now. I've had a UHaul and a Trillium 4500 at the same time. I had a Burro 17 and a Love Bug II at the same time; all of them while I've had the Airstream. I've had a '70 Airstream Safari, a '61 Bambi 16', an '85 Airstream 325 motorhome, a '57 Overlander 26' (the '61 Bambi, the '85 moho, and the '57 O'lander all at the same time a few years back), TWO '53 Flying Clouds in the yard at the same time I had the Burro and the 34' Airstream... and you want me to talk you out of merely having a Burro and a Puck? What's the problem?

I could probably buy TWO average Burros for this one Puck.

The guy has it out in the middle of the desert and it's been for sale forever, so I am sure his asking price can be dropped.

I have only seen pictures of it tho.. could be a dog, but his asking price seems within the ball park for one.

I want one to restore to the European class. The pup pups won't be allowed in this one.. if I get it.

Sounds waaay cool. I've always admired the Pucks. They were way ahead of their time and they're still elegant today. I'd love to see a concours restoration.

Gina,
On our HOME page list of trailer brands, we are two short of having a completed table. This is tacky and not befitting a quality site like FGRV. You need to buy the Puck so we can add the name and help balance out the table. Then we'll need just one more.

Think of it as a public service.

The Puck doesn't qualify, tho it can be an honorable mention of sorts.

It is a plastic and aluminium skin, with a molded top, I believe. I have actually only been in one, and I had a hard time telling.

Whoops, should have done a pre-post peek at the Puck site.

(The table still needs evening up. Aren't there any brands we haven't got?)

Wasn't it Shakespeare's Puck who said, "What fools these mortals be"? Owning one of those rigs opens you up to endless off-color rhyming jokes...

Gina if you can afford it and want it...buy it! Life is too short to live with regrets. You've wanted a Puck for a very long time. As you know, they're not available very often and certainly not at a reasonable price. I came oh so close to being a dual trailer owner about a month ago. I was salivating over a Scamp 5th wheel that was for sale and EVERYONE at my job and several members of this forum ALMOST had me convinced it was right thing for me to do. The 5th wheel is off to a GREAT home, just not mine. Do I have regrets? Not too bad right now, but as soon as camping season starts this Spring, I'll probably

Let us know your decision, inquiring minds want to know

Until today I thought a puck was a little round black thing we chased over yhe ice while sliding on metal runners. This one would be THE hit at a get-to-gether. I think you could score big time .

And for what else are you going to spend your money? If you really like it, you may be kicking yourself up and down the San Berdo mountains if it sells to someone else. Go for it.
