Someone told me that they were made to fall to the bottom of the Grand Canyon and survive.

Cool

I worked one year for the local U-Haul here, in the late 80's. We had one little U-Haul 13' Egg, and I can't recall it ever being rented out. The store manager did take it on fishing trips a couple times.....
I can see why they made no money on them - we rented the beejeezus out of our big Southwind motorhomes though.

Now you know that's a gross exaggeration, Cindy! However they would be good for going over a waterfall, so if you would like to take yours over Niagra Falls, I'll watch and take pictures!

Jokingly,

That's a given, isn't it?

PS And of course we amphibians swim, but I still haven't made my Burro into a "frog egg" quite yet!

Actually, someone put a fiberglass trailer onto a flat boat. A picture is on this forum somewhere.

Thanks to All !
We found ours advertised for sale online, you should look online under fiberglass rvs for sale and see what comes up. Uhaul sold them off to the public and they are out there for sale every so often. There are also lots of other lovely fiberglass rv too in case you can't find a Uhaul. Maybe try Craigs list or post an add wanting one on this site and Craigs. Some out there need a bit of work they all need something to some extent. Good luck.
Astrid

ps I just checked online and there are a couple at this web site plus all sorts of other fiberglass rvs. i was posted 4 days ago.

I found mine along side the road too. The man I bought it from was using it for bear hunting at the beach. I didn't know anything about U-hauls, but a compact lightweight camper was very interesting to me. Everything appeared to be original and in good shape. I bought it for cheap, and we have been enjoying it ever since. It is probably the best purchase I have ever made. Just went to NC mountains last week. They are out there, and sometimes you find them when you're not expecting it, although I haven't seen another one since. I sure get plenty of looks when I'm pulling it.
