I found this community when searching for the Eggcamper
. I just put a deposit down on one with Jim and am really looking forward to taking delivery.
I decided on a small molded fiberglass RV for several reasons. I live in a travel trailer when I am in the field for work for months at a time. A lot of guys prefer much larger trailers, but being the practical person that I am most of the time, a smaller fiberglass trailer REALLY appealed to me. Less chance of leaking, a MUCH smaller footprint to pull around the not-so-great roads that I frequently encounter, and perhaps most appealing - no sticks and staples interior.
I have been sharing a trailer with a longtime friend of mine who does the same thing that I do, and have been really put off by the quality and durability of the interior appointments of our trailer, even though it is a reliable brand and was purchased brand new a couple of years ago. All of the trailers I have been into have the same problem. It doesn't seem to matter how "nice" and expensive the trailer is. The furniture just sucks. The idea of a molded interior with minimal extra space filled with garbage particle board appointments was a huge factor for me.
Finally, getting such a compact trailer is a great look for me because I much prefer a half-ton pickup truck, as opposed to a 3/4 ton. I basically just sleep and shower in the trailer, so I don't need a ton of room, and the size savings will allow me to save on fuel and not have to be one of the many guys out here that "need" a $80K 3/4 ton 4x4 pickup to effectively tow their shells around.
Anyway, sorry for the wall of text - just wanted y'all to know where I am coming from. I look forward to participating here. Have a great week! ©
