I think any of the brands of fiberglass trailers can meet one's needs. As a group they are all potentially very good choices. They can last and last. Ours is 21 years old. We've given over 50 tours since we left NH in Nov. 2011 and virtually everyone touring thinks it's new.
There are a lot of questions to ask oneself before choosing. The following is off the cuff and represents my experience.
What kind of Rving will I be doing? Weekend, short trips. Long trips. Fulltiming
. (We travel 7-11 months a year. We use it a lot so the yearly costs are spread over a lot of usage. For us adding solar panels amounts to $1 a day over a year of travel and pennies a day over our expected usage, hopefully 10 more years.)
Should I buy new or used? (We bought a 1991 Scamp 16 used for a 1/3rd of the price of a new one. We also felt we'd be adding a lot of changes to what ever we bought to make it a long range traveler. We have probably spent $1-2000 and many hours getting it ready for us. Most lower duration campers may not need as many mods.)
Do I need to buy a tow vehicle or is my present vehicle adequate? People often spend more for their tow vehicle than the trailer. (We owned a 2004 Honda CRV easily capable of towing our Scamp 16. the Honda is very reliable and gets great mileage, this trip between 22-23 mpg.)
What can I afford, new or used? (I simply have never been able to justify buying a new trailer, something that would well out live me in use-ability and maybe even payments. Also I'm old and retired.)
What is the operating cost? The operating cost is mostly the purchase cost of the tow vehicle and the operating cost of the tow vehicle. (Our Honda was paid for, still worked well and has very low operating costs.)
Since this is off the cuff I'm sure I missed a lot. Scamp or Casita or Escape or Eggcamper
or Snoozy or Parkliner
, 13 or 16 or 17 or 19 or .....
Any of them can take you to marvelous places.
I believe I could own anyone of the fiberglass trailers and be happy though some would simply cost more. Over 11 years we have camped in the same places with big (32 motorhome) and small (Scamp 16) RVs. I can not say one is more fun than another. I can say our little Scamp is easier to handle and less expensive to own even though our Bounder motorhome was very reliable and comfortable.
Most of life is choosing to do something and not getting bogged down in the choosing; the fun is in the doing.
We have been on the road for 11 years. Time has flown by. I'm so glad we didn't wait until conditions were perfect because they never would be perfect. As well the deteriorating state of the economy might have further discouraged us, now we're beyond discouragement because now the pleasure overwhelms everything. We're enjoying the wonders of living easily in 90 square feet, the least expensive place we've ever lived.
Wishing you well with your choice.
