egg hunting...

Hi,
Though I have admired them from afar, I am a certified newbie to the egg camper market. Recent events have cropped up that make the idea of purchasing one even more appealing as well as necessary.



I have health complications that make it difficult for me to live in normal housing and am looking for a clean fiberglass RV to live in. I am located in Wilmington, NC and can travel a reasonable distance to pick one up. I am open to campers available in other parts of the south/mid-Atlantic. I cannot have a camper that was smoked in or has had a lot of chemicals in it.



I appreciate any suggestions re: certain brands that may suit sensitivities, etc...) I am excited about joining such a tight knit community of devotees.

Thanks for taking the time to read this post!

If you're looking at "new."
Lil Snoozy is just south of you.

And I think the new Parkliner is in your state.

Carl,

Thank you for the recommendations. I have looked at both of those companies online, and I especially like the Parkliner layouts. Unfortunately, a brand new trailer presents a number of problems for me because they are still "off-gassing" from the chemicals used to produce them. I am looking for a gently used camper that has had enough time to air out but isn't musty. This may limit my options somewhat but that's the only interior I can really handle. I would be interested in a used Parkliner but according to their website they are quite a young company and there just aren't many older ones floating around. Again, appreciate you taking the time to reply and would love to hear any other advice you may have.

Sincerely,
Kate

I agree. Lil Snoozy and Parkliner are both fairly new companies and will be hard to find used ones. I searched for a couple years for a nice used one that would meet my needs and finally wound up ordering a new Snoozy. And waiting a year or more, they have made improvements. And I'm sure they will continue looking for improvements.

I do have a o-zone machine so I can take out the impurities whether it be a new or used trailer. I use it on our church about once a year.

Good luck on your search.

Hey Carl,

I did check out that Scamp and it's real tempting but Jersey is a little far for me to travel right now. Thanks for the heads up! I will keep looking.

Best,
Kate

Kate, some campers have a furry liner (ratfur) on the inside of the walls. Is that an issue for your? Do you need a 'smooth wall' camper?

Hey Pam,

I noticed that in some of the pics. I think it probably would be a problem, though I am trying to be open minded as there aren't as many ones around with smooth interiors. So I guess in answer to your question, I would definitely prefer a smooth one. Thanks for the heads up on the "rat fur", haha. It is something that I would certainly need to consider.

Best,
Kate

I doubt there is much if any offgassing in a Parkliner. With the molded-in cabinets and gelcoat inner walls, there isn't much to put out gases. But Lisa's year-old Snoozy is another good option.
