I had a subscription, and dropped it. I can't afford to look at a magazine like that! I had a heck of a time getting them to stop sending me emails too. All they want to do is sell you something, especially insurance.

FGRV is my magazine.

I noticed when I bought my 16 foot used scamp that for the same money I could buy a much newer and larger conventional camper. One with pull-outs and all kinds of amenities. The truth is, just about anyone looking at what I bought and what I could have bought would have chosen the latter. And this was in the used market. In the new market, its even more amplified. But I know that simpler leads to more satisfaction. The more stuff you have, the more stress that goes with it. Tow a bigger rig = more stress. The American dream is all about big, and unless that changes, this market will cater to Suburban pulling behemoths or Class A and C motor homes.

No biggie, I look and scale things down.

Those pull-outs are just something else to break down. Not for me.

After a couple stickies, we looked for something simple, well made, & that would last. Egg.

I get Trailer Life, only because it was cheap ($10) and it replaced some other magazine that was discontinued. It does have some interesting articles, and technical advice. Reading all the problems that go with the big stickie campers can be entertaining too. They have mentioned teardrop campers, of which we own one. The current issue has a photo and letter from a lady in our town with her Vardo type camper, the local builder is someone I know.

Good to hear. These trailers are the industry's best kept secret!

They are a very well kept secret. When my wife and I were shopping for an RV we went to some of the biggest shows including, San Antonio, Austin, Houston, and Dallas, TX. We also visited the RV dealerships in those cities. We didn't see one fiberglass RV anywhere. We were in Casita territory and none were at the show or the dealers. We ended buying a KZ. You can have the worlds greatest products but if you don't advertise no one will know. It's up to the manufactures to get the word out.
The only reason I found out about fiberglass RVs is because I was looking for information on boondocking and ran into RVSues blog.
We now own a Casita and really enjoyed it.
