Valances

Since about the only ways to attach things to the fiberglass walls are velcro or an adhesive of some sort, what material(s) could be used to construct valances that would be light enough to stay attached and in place? We've not had our Egg Camper even a week yet and have not completely equipped it nor used it. We're complete novices here. We're ok on conventional RVs but not yet on fiberglass. Thanks

If you look at my "NestEgg" you will see valences that are held with velcro.

Never mind. I figured it out. Nice photos and mods. Adding propane heat? Propane cooking, too? We'll see how we like the all electric. Towed our Egg home from the factory with a Dodge turbo diesel but our regular tow vehicle will be a Chrysler mini-van. Thanks for your earlier reply.

No propane cooking, just some heat in case we do not have hookups. Where are you located?

What kind of foam did you use and how did you attach the various pieces together? For foam, did you use 4x8 insulation board or something else? Thanks.

I'm Checking out the box that you have your tank and batteries stored in. Is that a smaller than usual tank? We are thinking of getting a box to put the tank and batteries in but can't find one tall enough for the 20# tank.

Yes it is a 5 lb bottle, I only want it for a Wave III heater to use as needed since the entire trailer is electric. In case I stop en route and need heat.

We're less than 50 miles from the factory. The third of three visits was to take delivery. The visits totalled about 4 1/2 hours, 2 of which were at delivery. You'd enjoy meeting Jim Palmer. He is SO enthusiastic and excited about his product. On our first visit, he almost insisted that I get down and inspect the underside construction. He had good reasons for everything that went into his product. Std equipment included a one burner electric cooktop and microwave. He now has an on/off switch below the heater. We're anxious to get out and use the trailer. Getting a hitch on the minivan tomorrow. The weather here is not cooperating nor is our calendar. We're starting to think that we should unretire so we'd have time to do stuff.
