I just talked to Jim at Egg Campers again. He said he hasn't sold a single propane unit all year.
That may be true, but if it were me I would still base the choice on my intended usage. I mean, a dealer may not have sold a car with a manual transmission in six months, but I still want one for my driving style.
Personally, I prefer to do things for how I want them and not let resale rule my life, but then again my investment is relatively low compared to a new camper. There are certainly situations when making a decision based on resale could be important.
I guess I just sense that you may be experiencing some "encouragement" to do something just because it's "simpler," or because many others have done it - instead of basing it on what's right for you -- and I hate to see that happen, so I feel compelled to comment.
Do you have any thoughts of camping in places like National Forest campgrounds, or boondocking
, and/or Wal-Mart parking lots? Do you anticipate running a heater or furnace
when away from power? These are all places where propane could be nice. Boondocking
you could use a generator
, of course. At a Wal-Mart or a NF campground a generator
might be less useful. I guess I'd still want to know more about how you plan to camp before making a "firm" recommendation one way or the other.
Good to be thinking about it now before you finalize things
