I'd probably stay with my Scamp for now. . Been full-time in it for 3 years. But if starting with a clean slate I might go with a Parkliner, after seeing the specs. More head room.

This counts as fiberglass, doesn't it?




The trailer has our Jeep, four wheelers, SeaDoos, and snow mobiles in it.Well, you said money was no object.....

Darrell you are the FIRST pure full-timer in a 16' Scamp I've come across (Norm and Ginny are close to full-timers, but not quite). Pleased to meet you. Three years at it is a nice number for me to ponder. Hope all's going well for you out there on the road.

S.

I'm envious, I can't wait to retire and hit the open road and be a nomad/gypsy wanderer!

I would probably select a true custom built trailer, definitely not bigger than 19 feet. None of the fiberglass trailers we've seen are our dream trailer.

Actually Ginny doesn't seem to be wanting anything else while I occasionally muse over the trailer that could be.

We're not after more storage, a bigger bed, or....., mostly we want more time to travel together.

I assume we'll finish our traveling career with our Scamp 16; maybe 5 more loops of the North America, another cross Labrador and 6 more trips to Newfoundland.

We are truly comfortable in what we have, making little improvements as they come up.

Ginny has a saying about being happy.

"Happiness is not in having what you want but rather being happy with what you have."

P.S. Sharon M. We average about 225 days a year on the road.

Ginny really is wise but always very happy. Her happiness has rubbed off on me over the last 57 years, almost 50 married. If one is gifted in life, she is mine.

If money was no object......................

I would keep my Snoozy. Have it vinyl wrapped or custom painted.

Then I would buy/build a cabin in the mountains. Use the Snoozy to get there.
I would build a private camp site in all the places I wanted to camp. Use the
Snoozy to get there.

I'd also buy the top of the line Teardrop Trailer or have one custom made
for those times in the back woods. I could share the kitchen with the camp
mates but wouldn't be expected to share the bed with them........LOL

Then I'd fly to Europe, purchase a nice Euro Camper and travel the country.

And the winner is...

Tada!!!! And the winner is....

Most of Escape owners answered "I will buy bigger Escape trailer". 90% of others answered "I will keep my current trailer".

Looks like a trend

$1000 bucks a week for life

Deryk,

Fortunately it doesn't take a $1000 a week to travel, per day costs drop the more you use the trailer, the longer you stay in one place and the less you drive per day.

Though I admit it would be nice to get a weekly check like that.

I'm trying for the million dollars a year for life
and also pass it down to an heir.

But I like to breathe, so I'm not holding my breath.

Sharon, We originally planned on traveling for 3 years, thinking we'd see it all in that period. We now know one can not live long enough to see it all..... However it's fun trying.

I hear that loud and clear, Norm. I will hit the road shortly, full-time, and go for as long as my health holds out. Nova Scotia is high on my list. My mother told me stories of childhood vacations there when she lived in Boston. I'm getting excited, although I'll admit to being a bundle of nerves thinking about this new way of life. But it's my time to be free, frugal, and happy.

Sharon
