Obviously, this being a "fiberglass RV" forum none of us are biased in the direction of owning a fiberglass RV.
In our case, we have a 1970 26 ft Avion and a 1984 16 ft Scamp
. Now that the kids are on their own and we've retired we have found the Scamp
goes and the Avion stays.
This may not always be the case, because we've really enjoyed traveling and touring and investigating and camping in new and distant places for several years. Now we have a nice listing of places we might like to stay for an extended time, perhaps a month or so. The larger trailer would be more comfortable and convenient for this, so we may start using the larger trailer again.
In my opinion, for a small trailer, the fiberglass semi-frameless interior construction is the way to go. When you get much longer than 20 feet, there are other considerations that make that construction less practical. At that point, I prefer aluminum interior framing. In either case an aerodynamic shape is desirable. Whether Scamp, Casita
, Big Foot or any of the others, it is basically your call.
I like Scamp for its light weight
seems a bit upper scale. Big Foot is less aerodynamic, but has superior insulation. I haven't looked closely at many others.
Since this is your first trailer, I'm sure after you get it you will have some second thoughts. My advice is to not let that develop into a series of selling and buying trailers. Just learn to be content with the trailer you have and deal with anything that disappoints by consulting the crowd on this forum. Someone will have a solution.
