I use two Dri-Z-Air containers in my 17' and after two or three weeks, I dump out a cup of liquid from each ( winter ).
So, I am curious. Where does the liquid go if you use kitty litter and don't change it for months?

Thanks everyone for all the positive feedback. There is no liquid using litter bc litter absorbs liquid. If it clumps just scoop out the clumps. Idk how or why it works but it works for me in my rv & southern home. Thanks again

Steve Hilby do you know how hard it is to fit a 10lb cat in a coffee can, it's really tough & the cat doesn't like it. Lol you are so funny.

Hey everyone if you look on the web under uses for kitty litter you'll be surprised what you'll find. Thanks

Kitty litter is cheaper for the end consumer and less packaging to throw away as in damp rid when making your own container. I like it! Just a little humor here, is it clumping or non clumping!

Thank you for sharing. I live in NY too. In summer I leave the fantastic fan cracked with vent cover over it and obscure window cracked. In winter I close windows cuz mine sits outside with a cover. Wish I could change that, but I could barely afford the scamp let alone a new garage!

Cover?

What kind of cover do you use on your trailer. I've been told not to use a tarp. Would really like to put something on it when not in use to prevent pollen and dust on it.

No tarp is correct! I learned that here last year. If there's even a small amt of debris the tarp rubbing can scratch the gelcoat.

I bought the elite motor cover from EBay. Around 120 bucks as I recall they make one for the 13 and 16. A little sloppy but I can't afford the Calmark Sunbrella cover yet!

I will google those to see what they look like - thanks! I found both I think and requested a quote on one.

I think I can safely assume that Scamp covers will fit Trilliums?
http://www.calmarkcovers.com/
http://stores.ebay.com/elitemotoronline

Those are the two I found.

Calmark makes a cover for casita and scamp to specs. I know they'll make you one to your trailers specs exactly if you send them a photo and measurements.

I'm sorry but I don't know enough about trilliums vs. casita for design. Maybe someone with more knowledge can chime in here to give you advice!

I'm good with the EBay cover, although many have experienced disintegration in blazing sun. Where do you live? I'd much rather get indoor storage so am looking for winter months.

I am alone without help here so I find putting the cover on myself much too difficult but if you have help it goes ok. Hence I don't cover mine in summer when I'm camping frequently.

Hi Wendy,

We live in Nova Scotia. We experience ALL types of weather - the full spectrum! Our trailer is kept outside from May to October - I thought it would be nice to help keep it clean to cover it. I find the pollen, dust, rain makes a mess of it.

I plan to wash it one more time then put a coat of wax on it - still have not done that.

Yes I am. Have been so for 14 years now. I'm going camping tomorrow again and can't wait as the summer goes by so quickly and before you know it, the school bells are ringing again and it's almost time to put the Scamp away.

The winter here is long and depressing. I don't know...if I didn't have ties here I'd think very hard about moving in a few years. But I don't think that will ever be possible given the family situations here.

I hope someone can help you with the trillium vs scamp design question. I honestly don't know much about other trailers, except a bit about the casita.

For around $200 you can get a temporary garage. Mine was a bit more then that, but it is big enough for two trailers.

I thought those didn't hold up well to snow load?
