What's Your Favorite Raw Egg?

I've had no experience with restoring a fiberglass trailer, but some of my favorite threads are the ones that show a gutted shell or an old dilapidated trailer that is brought back to life.

For those of you with experience in this, I'd be interested in knowing what would be your favorite trailer to start with if you needed to do a complete restoration/rebuild, and why. Or, is fiberglass just fiberglass?

Casita or Scamp as there are plenty around and the manufacturers are still in business should you need structural parts. Otherwise, glass is pretty much glass and if you're willing to start with replacing the floor it's all pretty much the same.

I had a uhaul before and loved it but I feel the squarer campers ..compacts, trailswest, surfside, amerigos etc are the coolest redos . Really though, all eggs are cool.

That is just stunning. Naming that Ten Forward would not be a stretch, Donna. Even looks like a starship.

WOW that is awesome. Now if you could just retract the wheels and float it like a house boat.

Now, let's get back to Robert's original question.

"....what would be your favorite trailer to start...."
