Actually, if I were in a position to do so, I might. But I am a complete novice when it comes to molded fiberglass campers. I only started looking at camping trailers a month ago. Actually, the first one that caught my eye (I started looking for non-traditional RVs, without all the frills and suburban-home accoutrements) was a big, heavy trailer made in the image of western sheep camps. Take a look at these:

Timberline Range Camps - Sheep Camps, Sheep Wagons

These rustic campers actually have wood stoves in them! Their lower-end models (one is called 'Escape', which is confusing here) seem road-worthy, though not aerodynamic at all. I would really love one! Someday. . .

Then I came across the Oliver, which with its double-hull really intrigued me, until I contacted them and learned how much they cost. That led me to this site.

So I am just a newbie; you want someone with the deep knowledge of the many hundreds of threads and the history of MFG campers that Jon of AZ speaks about. I'm just dipping my toe in the water, and may not even end up with one (we just got a 'tour' of a 2000 Scamp 16, and thought it too small; we're going to see a Casita 17 this Sunday). But this is a great forum, and I'm delighted to have found it.

BTW, at some point last year I did come across a link to a genuinely egg-shaped British camper that might be new to some of you, the Barefoot Caravan:

My least favorite expression; too often an admission of defeat.

Or maybe an entreaty for one to recognize reality. Often a belated recognition, to be sure, but at least and at last...an acceptance of something that exists.

When I started this thread, I was unaware that the Happier Camper folks had started what has become a long-running thread on their exciting little product:
