Letitia...you asked a question on something I posted and you deserve an answer. Unfortunately, we base alot of comments simply based on "owners" comments or people that have had dealings with companies etc in these forums and that's what I based my comment on. Owners and BUSINESS owners have to realize ONE major facet of advertising for themselves and that is- "Word of Mouth". It can and MOST of the time will make or break a company!
Consider my "...for the past couple of years..." a pulled-out-of-the-air figure of speech. It actually seems they may have been on questionable ground longer than that based on the quote I include below.
I include a direct quote from a poster and I believe this was over a year ago. Personally, with this comment below alone, I'd steer away from EggCamper. AND, think about if you just bought a brand new EC right before his "close down". Here it is:
"When we bought our EggCamper (in 2009), Jim said he closed down operations every winter and went to Arizona. He said that he built the EggCamper more as a retirement "hobby" than as a business. This also explains the attitude that 'you can have it as I make it, or go somewhere else.'"
If I were buying a new FG right now (and I bought my Scamp
BRAND new in 2010), it would be an Escape! Hands down!!
Sorry...no offense meant at ALL for current EC owners and what I said is just my opinion but I'm sticking with it. If it's too offensive, the moderators will delete it I'm sure. I'll accept that. But the bottom line is, I still WOULD not recommend an EggCamper to anyone in their current status. CLOSED.

Just curious, that's all.....
