Nice Looking Rig Joe. We too have found the glass egg community a very friendly bunch.

I see by our pic you are using a WDH and the accolades go out to you for using this equipment. A little tip for you. You can improve your set up by having the receiver shank cut and re drilled. The cost is minimal and it will move the ball closer to the back bumper.

See ya out there on he road. Happy travels.

Hi Bob!! To be honest, we LOVED your EggCamper!! It is absolutely beautiful and worth every penny!! We have always felt that way, which is why we did not make you an offer. We didn't want to insult you or offer way less than what it is worth. Its a 2011 - like new!

Our decision was all about budget over want, we had some $$ saved up and really wanted to stay in cash budget to stay out of debt. Honestly, as much as we love our new camper, we would have LOVED to end up in your EggCamper.

Now I have a 2005, have to bend my head to stand up, squeeze thru the galley, and sleep touching both walls......lol. The price I will pay for being a tightwad.......ha!! I think your EggCamper will sell fast with the weather breaking! The EggCamper is still my favorite FGRV!!!! Good luck selling, and I will pass the word. Its was a pleasure meeting you!!

Hi Wayne! Thanks for the welcome! Yes, the previous owners were giving up camping completely, so everything went with it!! WDH, Sway, mattress topper, wheel chalks, outdoor rug, cords, hoses, filter, wheel blocks, even a cube heater and mini crock pot....lol. I'll get more pics up Sunday!!

As for being safe - I wasn't so safe on the way home - I had to rig up an adapter to go from the 4 flat on the Tahoe to the 7 round on the Casita. In other words - no brakes!! Needles to say, that's the first item of order before we go anywhere - a brake controller. Although we really need a new truck too uuugggg - that 1999 Tahoe has 182,000 on her. Did I mention I was cheap? lol

Thanks again - pics coming - I promise

So as for options, I'm not sure yet - it seems to have a decent amount. The previous owner did tell me it has the 25 gal fresh water. One thing I am curious about is a "high lift axle". I'm not sure if it has one - or what one even is.....lol. Besides maybe it's a higher ride. Also, the one thing it does not have, which we really really want to add is a 2" receiver for a bike rack. I need to look into adding that. Hopefully the pics are good! Its in great shape - not personalized much yet.

Hey Joe, congrats on the Casita! It looks awesome. We do not see a lot of Casitas up in Southern Alberta. One of the local RV dealers had a 17 SD that was traded in on a new 5th wheel last summer and I am kicking myself for not buying it.......LOL.

Ok, maybe I need to start a new thread to capture any mods I do to the camper all in one place with pictures. I think I will do that when I start my first one - but I just ordered a frame mounted receiver hitch for the bikes from perfect casita!! I'm pumped!

I have read to other options for racks, pros cons etc - but we want to stick with the rear rack for convenience. I think tongue weight will be fine and our tug is a Tahoe. I will always own a 1/2 ton p/u or suv as a tug due to me being 6'5" tall. Our bike rack has a feature that wedges the rack to one side in the receiver and eliminates any wobble. Bikes are Aluminum - all should be fine!! I'll start a new post with pics when I start!
