We Made Some Changes To Our Eggcamper!

We made a few changes to the interior of our 2011 Eggcamper - sharing over the next few emails in case someone is interested. The two most important changes involved the bed and the dining table. Having the big bed set up in the back of the camper made it difficult to reach the overhead storage bins as well as the storage bins located near the floor, under the bed. Also, we are both tall, and wanted a more comfortable sleeping arrangement. We toured another brand camper recently and admired the twin bed set up that allowed each person enough room to stretch out comfortably… And we realized we could make something similar in our Eggcamper. We eliminated the dining table and two seats (more on that later) and turned that area into a twin bed – the other twin bed runs the width of the camper in the back - so it is an “L” shape sleeping arrangement. We had couch/mattresses custom-made to exactly fit the shape of the camper and the fabric we chose was Sunbrella, so that it would be durable and easy to maintain. The back bed is 88“ x 30“ wide and the side bed is 93” long and 28.5” wide - we also had an extra cushion made in the area next to the sink (matching the height of the mattress). We didn’t want to have too many cushions because there would be no place to store those at night when we were sleeping so we just had two matching cushions and two bolsters made and then used our original throw pillows. On the dining area side, we increased the width of the fiberglass mold by using a plywood insert to support the couch/mattress. Next post will about our new Lagun table!

The Lagun Table

.....continuing with the Changes to our Eggcamper:
We relocated the pedestal dining table - actually removed the pedestal and fitting, and purchased a Lagun table mount. We reused the original Eggcamper dining table top with the Lagun system. For the installation, we used 1/2” thick plywood on the inside of the cabinet space to provide necessary reinforcement of the fiberglass in order to install the mount. We also purchased two extra mounting plates so that the mounts would line up all the way to the floor to provide maximum support and range of adjustability. We do not need to remove the table when traveling due to this additional support. The Lagun system is great because it allows for various configurations and locations of the table by simply swiveling or adjusting the height. For example, it could be an extension of the counter space in the food prep area. It can be a side table or “night” table, a work/game table......and of course, a dining table! Since the table can be swiveled to the side, it allows the aisle to be more open so that the camper feels roomier, and the top and bottom storage hatches are very accessible.

Extend-A-Shower

Continuing with Changes to our Eggcamper:

Here’s a small change that will make a nice difference for us - we installed an “Extend-A-Shower” rod for the wet bath curtain. We considered adding a door, but realized that made the room tight, with no “elbow room” when showering. The doorway width was more narrow than the rod, but an adjustment was made by cutting the rod to fit.
The rod easily pushes in (where it can be used as a drying rack), and you just pull it out when you use the wet bath. We use a Hookless shower curtain, so it is easy to take down for washing.

Eggcamper: TV, Porch Light, Hatch, and more...

Thanks Michael & Sandy! And welcome to you Sandy - hope you will love your Eggcamper!
.....continuing with a few more modifications.....
We also added a screen door handle - inexpensive, easy installation....wish we had known about that years ago.
We added an outside “porch” light.
There was some space under the refrigerator, so we carefully made an opening, added a hatch cover, and now have extra storage for utility items like tools, etc.
We mounted a TV (reinforced the installation), re-purposed a fiberglass limb cutter into an antenna pole, and added a small antenna, as well as adding an outside cable connection. We like to keep up with weather & news....otherwise we are not big TV-watchers.
We added an extra layer of insulation to our “pantry” closet, and built a little closed cubby for the spare tire. Trimmed up the shelves.....all removable in case we need to get to the tire.
We have a few more items on the “To Do” list.....we were actually extremely happy with the Eggcamper when we bought it....just tweaking things over the years to make it best for us. As we have done these modifications, we have consistently admired and appreciated the great workmanship Jim Palmer put into these trailers. We love ours and want to keep it forever!

I love what you have done in the camper! Your colors are what I did in my house and my favorite. The entire inside of your Egg camper is awesome!

Love, love, love what you have done inside your egg. I am looking at options for a table to use at the front couch so I can leave the bed made up permanently. Thinking of doing two smaller ones, one I can also use as an extension of the counter that can swing down and around to use as a table and the other would be on the door side it would need to swing toward couch and fold down when not in use, so we can still use the couch for sitting. My question is do the Lagun table tops also fold?

Nancy,
The Lagun Table System does not come with a table top.....just the mounting system and hardware. Lagunusa.com. There are lots of ideas if you search on the escape RV forum, as it seems many people who purchased that camper brand have added the Lagun table - - and they have some ideas about building a table top that will fold. We just used our original table top that was in the Eggcamper, and because of the Lagun system, we can swivel it around all different ways to accommodate our needs, and we can also take it out of the bracket if we want to remove the table totally (or just the table top only)....although we think there will never be a need to do that. If you buy another mounting plate, you could use the same assembly in a different location… Either in the camper or outside the camper, if you want the table set up somewhere else.
Hope this helps!
