We have never had a stranger approach us wanting to talk about the Trillium (or the Ventura that preceded it). Maybe it depends on where you live? Little trailers are quite common in our neighbourhood.

We've had several people ask us about our Casita....always very friendly. On our last trip.....one little lady asked my wife if she could "peek" inside. My wife showed her our trailer.....she and her husband had a fairly large motorhome. She loved our trailer but asked us if it was hard getting use to such a small trailer. I said...."Small.....did my wife show you the basement as well?" We had a good laugh and ended up having drinks with them around the campfire that night.

I've kept a notebook on RV trips forever. Mostly interesting things about the kids expiriences. A few breakdowns too, it happens .
Never had anyone ask to see my cabover, C or A but the first trip out with the SD 17 at a fuel stop I was asked by a GI to see the inside. I noted it in my log as the first lookyloo. It goes with an egg, kind of like bacon and eggs. It just goes together.

On our first trip in the egg, we stopped at a truck stop in Maine. It started with 2 people asking for a tour and by the time we got away, we had shown our rig to about a dozen people.

It must be the shape. These little eggs make people smile. I smile every time I come home from work and see the egg in the driveway.

Yes I know what you mean, stopping at Canadian Tire on the way out we had 3 different groups come for a tour of the Ventura and 2 offers! Then another time, I came out of a store to find a guy scratching his head and looking all around the trailer. When I asked what was wrong, he said where the hell is the black water tank(I have a 4" pipe for storing the awning poles strapped under the trailer). Gave him the "Grand Tour". He laughed when I showed him the grey water tank(a 1 gallon plastic container).

At our model airplane"float flies", we do quite a few tours of our humble abode.

I don't mind the visitors in my Scamp 13 except that you always have to make the bed and they always seem to come out when I am trying to back in to a space. My backing skills suck and get exponentially worse with each set of eyes on me.

We live in California and rarely see "eggs". When we do we get excited as do other FGRV owners and "looky-loos". I have noticed that more people showed interest in our new and shiny Scamp. Recently it was not so shiny and nary a person approached us. Hmmm, I'll shine 'er up for the next trip and send a report.

We were out resting on a lonely two-lane road on a hill in the middle of nowhere and a driver whizzed by and made a U-turn to stop to talk with us. She gushed about our little darlin'. We've been approached in gas stations and parking lots too. I always note when there's a FGRV in our campground and look for opportunities to make conversation with the owners. My husband is of an opposite mind as he does not camp to make friends with the neighbors.
