New to this so bear with me. Recently retired so I have a lot more time to be gone, and I intend to be gone. Plan to do a lot of "boon docking" I have never owned a travel trailer and I think an "egg" would provide a good base camp for backpacking and hiking and anything else I want to do.

I will be traveling alone most of the time (I tried to get the wife to retire too). I think what I need is a 16 or 17 ft with a refrigerator and a toilet, don't want to rough it to much.

I like to buy used (best bang for the buck) probably 2000 or newer.

What do I need to look out for in a used trailer, don't want to buy something for $7000 and find out I need to put another $3000 into it.

If you have any thoughts on my plans or helpful hints on what to look for I would appreciate them.

I have a 16' SCAMP for sale. It was my late father's and he and his wife loved it. Its a 2002 with stove top, heater, hot water heater, refridgerator (electric/gas), toilet, shower and in awesome shape about 7500 miles or so and has brand new tires. Asking 9K but its negotiable. I am in Fredericksburg, VA. Let me know if you'd like me to send you some photos. cessnapilot66@yahoo.com
