Hi, Margaret here again,
I went and looked at a camper, and even used, it seemed to off gas fairly significantly.
I am allergic to mold and chemically sensitive.
I have to leave my house and neighborhood fairly urgently, and a camper gives me the freedom to be in (at least) a mold-free environment, while I look around for a place that feels best (for my body and lungs).
On the FB mold forums, the Camplite (yes, I know, not Fiberglass), Scamp
, and Casita
are recommended, but the people who run those groups recommend that the latter two be bought used in a dry climate, so that they have had a chance to off gas (and be--hopefully--mold free).
Camplite had a corporate takeover of sorts, and while better insulated, how has more toxic components and a higher possibility of mold.
I checked out the Oliver
website, and it looks great, e.g. no carpeting on walls, etc. etc., but it's super expensive.
Is the Egg no longer made, period?
I went to see the Parkliner
, and while the design was really innovative, and the unit was really cute, it definitely off gassed (and this one was used). The manager, who was very nice, said he would be able to customize a lot of stuff, but not everything. The cabinets are made of marine grade plywood, which, according to Wikipedia at least, contains formaldehyde.
I don't know anything about the Lil Snoozy
, other than what's on the website. I like the fact that the cabinets don't include any plywood or particle board, but I wonder about the rest of the unit?
I prefer something I can use while boondocking
, or even live in full time until my current house sells or rents, and I get enough rent money from it to build a new house.
