So, here I am!

Deryk...like you I know a few things I want, like being able to stand up! I want to get something I can keep and enjoy for several years. My dogs and I are ready to upgrade from tent camping!

Base price is $14,900

If you scroll down a loooong ways on the price page the base price and option prices show up.

Good luck finding something as tall as you need......can't beat the fiber glass trailers for ease of living with......cool in the summer, easy to heat, don't usually leak, clean easily, light to tow......

It would be nice to see more styles out there like some of the old space aged "Jetson" trailers I have been drewling over for years......still love the 13' Buro

I believe the pricing starts at around $8000 and goes up with options. I paid $9000 + $1500 shipping in 2005 for my 2006 prefire trailer with a lot of options. No bath, no Air Conditioner, no toilet. I got almost exactly what I wanted and have used it extensively. In fact we're off for about 3 months as of tomorrow morning. We'll probably tow between 5,000 and 6,000 miles this trip. with more planed for later in the year.
If you call them they'll send all the pricing information. Then can call back to get any more information to help you choose options. Extremely nice work with, at least it was that way for me.

As for options think about how you want to camp. Mostly in RV parks with hook-ups or more often without electricity and water connections.

Scamp will also work with you on options they don't list, example you can replace the carpet with vinyl flooring. Also ask for people in your area that are willing to show their trailer. Almost all Scamp owners are more than willing to show off their trailers.

If you can find a used EggCamper, I believe the ceiling height is 6' 7". They are a bit wider as well, which allows for a longer bed. No more sleeping in the fetal position.

FYI, Mark:

You haven't said much about your camping style, but if it includes much off-grid camping:

Most Eggcampers are built entirely without propane systems and it's not real easy to retrofit. The same is true of the "Lil Snoozy". And one would have to carry a lot of generator in order to supply energy for anything more than lights/pump/, perhaps a compressor fridge.

Cooking and heating consume more power than even the vaunted Honda EU 2000 will readily supply.

Something to consider while shopping...

That is a good point. My camping style up to this point has been mostly tent, so I have not worried about electricity or propane. Having a hard roof would be an upgrade at this point but I can see down the road that having some of the nicer traits of the trailer available off the grid would improve my ability to use it in more locations. The trailer in question is indeed all electric...at this point I haven't heard back.

Everyone...I appreciate the helpful hints, tips and suggestions!

Mark, if you're interested in the EggCamper and having propane is a concern, you may want to read this post by Cathy: Buying an EggCamper, post 18

For the most part, in the world of molded fiberglass trailers, 6'+ is called height impaired.... lololol. If you can handle the hitch & weight, I think that the larger BigFoot trailers are also a bit taller, esp the 5th wheel.....

Donna,

Thanks for the link. It looks like the kit is fairly reasonable though the appliances would add to the cost. It is still good to know there is a kit already available. Thanks!

The Bigfoots are my favorite (without having seen one), but their cost is the highest. I can tow about 6500 so I can get by with the 25' or smaller BF units. I am trading emails with a guy in TX about a 2005 model. Maybe something will pan out there.

Im liking the ParkLiner... 1" taller inside then my last boat I lived on... 6'4" for my 5'10.5" height gives me stretching room!
