I agree completely! The only positive thing I can say about CR is that it is (usually) better than Consumers Digest!

A couple of good things about Consumer Reports is that they run no ads and buy all product they test from a retailer. They, like all reviewers have quirks, and positions, but nothing like the Nightly News. CR usually lets you know where they are coming from....I am not a subscriber.

If one wants a trailer comparison, all fiberglass trailer owners and prospective owners should take the opportunity to visit a fiberglass rally. One can learn a lot in a day or two by just by walking around, meeting friendly people, and questioning and listening. These rallies are everywhere, this year we've been to one in PEI, TX and OR with WI a possibility.

I am always amazed when a Fiberglass Trailer owner asks me how come your trailer's so shiny or what year is that Scamp, not believing its a '91. SO many try to figure out the world fiberglass world alone when this marvelous site exists.

For me, I think it hardly mattered which brand I bought, other then it had to be Honda towable. This year we've made an 11 month loop in our Scamp 16, previously made a 10 month loop in a stick built Sunline 15.5. Both trips were wonderful. The real difference was that we got 3 mpg better mileage with the heavier Scamp.

The fun of traveling, of being on the road is primary, not if my bed is 4" wider, or if I have one more drawer, or if.....

Now we love our Scamp. It is a better rig than our Sunline, mostly because the Scamp never leaks. However the fun quotient with both Rigs was very high.

Of course one should buy what most nearly fits their budget and needs, but it's the journey..... or should I say journies
