Ron, with a gutter trailer, you can make the interior uniquely your own. Everything from the bed size to which side you prefer the sink, etc.

Post pictures are you go along, we love to look!

Thanks every one ! this one belonged to an old high school friend,,who recently passed away,,& his wife knew i wanted it,,,,I won,t tell you how much I paid,because i hate to see grown KIDS cry....
Its been stored in a barn & has not seen much use sense 1980,,,frame & out side are very good...he had the idea to remodel the inside & never did,,,but she has all the parts,,,I am a retired carpenter,,so its a fun project for wife & I....Its 340 miles away ! so soon as its home in its new "barn" I will post pics & yes Donna we have many "custom ideas" & We will take YA-All along as we build..& will post in the Mods forum.. Until then THANKS for Welcoming us to the EGG family...we have looked at many of the Jr. threads here & PMed afew..for ideas,& are Open to suggestions???The trailer has a white exterior..& we love Blue Birds,,so exterior theme is white with blue trim & Blue Bird decals interior will be white with blue trim,,,she already bought blue & white material for cushions & curtains..

Hmmm. East Michigan, mid Michigan, and we're west Michigan. Seems the state is well represented. We haven't even had a chance to try out our new Egg Camper which we've had a whole two weeks. Darn. Anyway, best of luck with your project. I bet it'll be a labor of love........Bob

Maybe a Michigan Nog is in order. I have a gf in Charlevoix with a boler, and another one close to me with a little 13ft scamp. Wonder how many we can collect?

Believe ME, they will come!

'SPEAK' (AKA: 'Seek') and they shall 'come'!

A few years back, a friend started a teeny tiny meet in Washington state. They now have about 30-40 trailers showing up each year. Although we're in Oregon, we go up every year to 'his' meet in WA.
Any chance to attend a meet, if scheduling (and gas money) allows!

In two short weeks, I have a trip to Ft. Langley, Canada planned for a nice little EGG Gathering...any excuse to travel around!!!
