Ron, please tell us the story of your rollover -- The more we know about the experiences of others, the better...
To Pete and Donna
I have a fairly detailed report (4 pages) that I'd be happy to provide but I don't think you want it in the middle of the messages here. Is there some way to attach it. (24 K in Mac MS Word, no pictures)

Ron sent me the details of the accident. I've attached it here as a PDF. After reading the info, I'm glad to know Ron and Girl didn't have any major injuries too

My wife and I lived for 5 years in a 29 foot ( one slide ) Holiday Savoy and after that traveled extensively in a 21 foot front bedroom Fun Finder so have some experience with this lifestyle ( we now have and love a 13 foot Burro ). Understanding that it would require a dedicated pickup tow vehicle I would suggest that you consider a fifth wheel ( I am trying desperately to avoid a specific brand recommendation but unfortunately used Scamp fifth wheels are the most affordable ). When living full time in an RV the more space the better ( and you will reach the point where you would kill for a washer dryer ). Final suggestion check out the threads on gatherings in this forum and visit one near you. That is what we did. We found the folks at the gathering ( last year at Champeog ) to be very friendly and more than willing to show us the inside of their unit and share their ideas to make their egg more "user friendly". The knowledge gained from such a visit will be invaluable in your decision making process.

I think you're in the wrong place if you think any of us are going to tell you what brand of molded lightweight fiberglass trailer to avoid As has been stated above, it depends totally on your needs/wants/budget and tow vehicle. We have members who full-time in a 13 foot Scamp and still others in trailers nearly twice that length. I would think they're all happy with their choice or they'd probably be towing something else.

Good luck!
