Thanks for the tips.

Today I made a screen for my escape window and it turned out so much better than I even thought possible. I will post photos when it gets light out tomorrow

What manner of electrical ingenuity are you looking for? And what ideas do you have?

First off this camper only has 2 outlets. I just found another one today that the water heater is plugged into so I was thrilled since I need a place to plug in the electric blanket when it's cold and didn't want to string one from the air conditioner outlet.

We travel with extensive electronics, two phones, two kindles and a computer. I would love to figure out some way to build a docking system for these with electric right at the station. This could possibly fit under the back bed some how so it's out of sight. I haven't worked it out yet. We are going camping this coming weekend and I am sure that some of this will work out once we figure out how best to use the space.

I also saw someplace where someone put rope lights along both sides of the carpet on the ceiling and it looked amazing.

This doesn't require electric but I hate the fiberglass piece in my camper that swings up to get under the back bed. The camper isn't made this way anymore for a good reason, it's big bulky and doesn't allow you to use the full storage height because of the way it swings. This is an easy fix by just taking it out and making another board to fit across. When I do this I will also make a little curtain that covers the area since I don't have little wooden doors to cover the openings in the fiberglass.

I really wish the camper had not come with the gas, I love the idea of all electric. I doubt we will ever use the gas options because the fridge is so tiny it's easier to use a cooler, I think the fridge will be used to store stuff in. As far as the gas stove goes we prefer to cook outside. Less mess and no making your camper smell like dinner. The camper was such a great deal that these are minor things that we can work around. The new just electric fridge actually has a bit more room in it but mine is missing the whole back corner for the gas supply. I talked to the builder about putting in a different fridge and was told it's not possible. I take that as a challenge

Tracey,
Remove two bolts and the fiberglass under the bed thing will be gone. But, you'll need to fabricate a board to support your mattress. But that's fairly easy with a piece of 3/4" plywood and a small facia board. Once that's done, underbed drawers are wonderful.

Is your fridge a 3-way? The all electric version uses a compressor fridge (Norcold DC0040). Granted, it's small, but it is very efficient. And yes, you can change the fridge. But you may need to cut some fiberglass from the front of the counter. But, before you do, check out the prices of a new fridge. They are very pricey. Someday, I'm planning to upgrade the fridge to one that's a bit larger. There is a bit of room beneath the fridge, so I could fit one that's a little taller.

Our EggCamper came as "all electric" and I've since added propane so that it would be more available for off-grid campsites. I replaced the electric water heater with a combination electric/propane unit and added a propane furnace. I didn't add a stove and I kept the original electric heater. The state and federal campgrounds in the northeast almost never have hookups, so the propane is very handy.

We don't cook inside either. You could probably cap off the propane line to the stove and replace it with a maple cutting board or even have a fiberglass shop splice in a piece of the underbed fiberglass thing to restore the counter top.

We have four 120 v duplex outlets, over the sink for the microwave, under the bed for the water heater, over the dinette table, and one for the AC unit.

Emergency Exit Screen

I took out the fiberglass under bed piece today and replaced it with some plywood. Now I am working on a simple fabric skirt to hide the tubs. It's going to be so much easier to access that area now and I can use my taller tubs.

I also finished my Emergency Exit Screen, the first photo is the screen out of the window and you can see that I didn't have a big enough piece of fiberglass screen so I just made due. The outer edge fabric is a waterproof raincoat fabric that will resist water and wont fade like a cotton fabric would. It also doesn't fray much. I made a template of the corner curves and where the holes needed to be for the window release then after I applied the velcro all the way around the screen did a buttonhole stitch around the rectangle areas and cut them out. When it's placed onto the velcro around the window frame it fit quite nice. If I made another one I would make it maybe 1/2 inch smaller than I thought because the fabric and screen does stretch a bit and you want it tight. The two tabs at the bottom are grosgrain ribbon so that if you did need to get out of this window it would be easy to get hold of these and peal the screen up.

That's interesting to me, because when I saw that pivoting thingy I thought it was very innovative and practical. It made it so easy to raise the bed, hardly any effort required. Shows what I know! It never entered my mind that it could cut down on storage space.

It was innovative but not practical, it weighed so much more than just the piece of plywood that he is building them with now. With the full sized mattress on top, this is what came with the camper, it was impossible to hold up the fiberglass piece to get items out.

The EggCamper is our dream. However, they're hard to come by...

beautiful egg

Hey there ,
Love the pics of your new egg. We just picked up a 2006 eggcamper, ol' #36 this summer and just love it. Love that we have both gas and electric option. Still can't figure out why Jim went all electric with the newer models but glad we found this lat year of the hybrid. Love what you did with the interior and glad you have an awning that must make a difference.

all best and have a great time connecting to nature in your egg. Hope we sse ya on the road some day!
andrew

I never had the gass hooked up in this camper, it seemed like pumping gas into such a sealed chamber simply wasn't the best idea. We never missed it since we didn't cook in the camper and I don't camp without electric.
