We have the 12 X 12 Eureka Northern Breeze screen house. Cost about $400, but well worth it in our opinion. Go to the thread "jekyll island georgia" under "Camping, Camp out Reports" and the first post is ours. Screen house is to the left in the picture. Further down that thread I was in a discussion about it with someone, and there was a thread here somewhere about various screen houses, but I don't remember where. A search may find it for you.

Question I'm confused

"Looking for lightweight camper with bathroom in Buffalo"

Why do you want the bathroom in Buffalo?

I'm not exactly sure what you're asking me. I thought it would be nice to have the bathroom shower combo, but I realize now that I could get away with a Porto potty to keep the price down. Not to get into too much detail, I have Crohn's disease and since I may be alone with my daughter, I don't want to have to worry about leaving her alone in the camper. Does that answer the ?.?

Hi, Tera. I took the "with bathroom" spec out of the title of your thread.

As for so many "sold" ads, be sure you are not looking at the Classified Archive. We try to move the ads for things that are sold into that archive. The old ads are useful for pictures and establishing value, so we keep them. But as someone looking to buy, you'll of course be more interested in the For Sale forum.

Good luck with your search! As some have already mentioned, attending a rally is an excellent way to see a variety of trailers. And don't forget the Buyer's Checklist in our Document Center.

Tera, I know how much Rick loves this trailer. And wouldn't be selling it unless he had to.
Haven't you ever owned sometime you wish you could get back at any price?
That's what I meant, not figuratively.
Sorry I may have confused you.
Your main focus is to stay with a trailer that meets your tow limits, budget, needs, vs wants.
You don't want a fixer upper.( frame, axle, leaks, etc.) don't get decorating confessed with the other. Everyone loves to add there personal touch.
You can always upgrade down the road. Starting with a vehicle that can haul great loads, bigger trailer, as time permits.
Good luck, you are asking the right questions and you will do fine. This is a big step for most everyone. Your challenges are do able, happy camping!

Sorry Tera, I was deliberately misreading your title. Unfortunately, I've been talking with my brothers too much lately.
I will share with you that I bought a trailer with a shower and flush toilet as those were requirements by "he who must be heard" (my DH). I could do without both, but it is very nice, on those late night trips to the loo, not to have to get dressed to trek to the facilities (especially if they're in Buffalo)! Although, I really don't like having to deal with the stinky slinky and sorta think I might prefer one of those cassette porta potties. They sure sound easier to deal with, and I think they would be easier to clean as well.
Good luck with your egg hunt and happy camping.

Custom paint job on outside. but I am asking for 5,000. firm. port-a-potty, fridge, stove top, and a portable heater. We have always had the bed made up with a 8" thick foam mattress, best sleeping ever. As for our child she slept on the couch until she got older and then we added a pup tent and cot. Now we are looking for a larger trailer with a permanent bed and table/dinette set.

Just in case you are still interested.

Dottie, welcome to FGRV!

I might suggest you start a new thread in the introduction section ("Hi, I Am..."). Let us know a little about yourself, your travel plans, your intended tow vehicle, and rough budget. I'm sure you'll get lots of encouragement and suggestions.

If you haven't already discovered it, the classified site www.fiberglass-rv-4sale.com is another good place to look for a molded fiberglass trailer.

Best wishes in your "egg hunt"!
