My wife says I look at stuff and never see the whole picture all the time. Well, that is the way it is. I guess we only see what we want to see sometimes.
We owned a sixteen ft Casita
for six years. It is a great little trailer but I wanted a small fifth wheel so about four years or so I started looking for one. I came across Bigfoot
and the Scamp
. Nearly bought a Scamp
fiver until I saw a picture of the Quantum
. I would check Ebay and all the other for sale
RV listings looking for one but no luck. Then I saw Kent's ad for his so I jumped at the chance to buy it. I'm as happy as can be. Everyone that knows me can tell you that I am fanatical about building and finishing with great detail. This is one project that I am enthused about far more than all the other projects I've done.
To me the Quantum
is a contemporary classic. It's design never goes out of style. It's like a P-51 Mustang. It is so well designed that if you change it it would not have the same appeal.
It is really special to have a forum where there are folks like us who can meet and talk about our passion for these beautiful little fiberglass gems. I also enjoy the history aspect where owners share what they know about of find out about their trailer.
Last but certainly not least is the usage. There is very few things in life that I truly enjoy as much as a long camping trip in the great outdoors. I'm a fly fisherman so I'm ready to go fly fishing at the drop of a hat
. Having a small fiberglass camper really makes getting into a more remote place easy.
Ya see, I get to typing and I can't stop...I'll save some for later.
