I've mentioned this before, but the number of molded fiberglass trailers we've seen this summer in our corner of the world is remarkable, it seems barely a day goes by we don't see one, and often more than one. Where are they coming from?
Are there just more being owned in the northwest and traveling to the Peninsula? What gives?
We took a two day trip to Grayland State Park (WA) this week - a quiet (and cold!) ocean respite for Mike before going back to work following a (flying) trip to CA & the death of his mother. In the park one of the hosts had a Casita
(now I can't remember, Casita
or Scamp), then as we were leaving the park there was a Scamp
5th wheeler in front of us - and it turned out to be someone we knew! They had just purchased it, been looking for one for a long time, had propane/frig questions to ask Mike (the propane
tech), and had never heard of the FGRV forum, which of course we raved about. We also saw a cab-over Northern Lite
Last week I talked with a Casita
owner from CO staying at Fort Worden State Park in Port Townsend when I went for a beach walk. She also had never heard of the forum but confessed to looking for eggs on the road when they traveled so I knew she would love the forum (hello if you're reading this!)
Yesterday we saw one on the road (highway 101 heading east), another parked in Port Angeles with little 70s style flower decals on it in a place we've never seen one before. Then last night Mike went to the county park near us in Quilcene to haul water for our garden (dry summer - shallow well) and there was a trailer with no name parked at a house - now this is truly remarkable, Quilcene is a tiny little unincorporated town, what are the odds??? I might go check it out today.
Then there are the 3 13' Burros, a few Scamps, Casitas, a few Big Foots, Bolers, some unnamed eggs, etc. etc. we have seen in the past month, honestly we have lost count, I should have been keeping a log!
So where have all these trailers been hiding out? And how do we get little business cards for the forum to hand to folks we talk with?
If you are any of these trailer folks (or is that yolks!
) we are sighting - welcome to the Olympic Peninsula!
