Greetings All !!

Newbie to the forum. Became fascinated when I saw a small FGRV drive down the road. Luckily the owner stopped for gas so I could get a good look. Been searching sites and found this piece o' heaven.

Been considering getting a small rig for occasional weekends at my friends place in the sticks (Blodgett, OR). I currently have a camp trailer there but it is a hassle to set up (Apache pop-up).

Looking at the smaller Compact Jr or similar. Would really like to know is someone could give me the dimensions or if there is one local (Portland Oregon) that I could have a look at.

I know about the upcoming NOG, but doubtful I can get time off from work. Any advice or recommendations? Normal occupants would be me, 2 medium size dawgs, and the occasional cage of ill ferrets.

Kevin

Welcome Kevin!!!
One doesn't HAVE to be at the NOG for the full time to appreciate it for what it is.

Could you not attand just for a day?? It can't be that far a drive down and over to the coast from Portland????

Doug, the NOG is NOT at the coast! You're thinking of the big July Oregon Gathering. This NOG is south of Portland and east of I-5.

Great Kevin, glad you can come for the day, you're welcome to stay longer.... bring a tent!

Thanks for the invite, Donna. Wish I could, but with my zoo I have to plan overnights way in advance.

And my 'tent' is actually my trusty '89 Toyota Van. My makeshift camper until I find something

Kevin, you may have already found this site: Molded Fiberglass Trailers | Fiberglass RV's For Sale

It is run by a forum member and is a great resource. I found my Burro on it this summer.

Kevin, you can't go wrong with a small fiberglass camper. We own a 40' diesel motorhome and in 2007 bought a new 13' Scamp for camping in National Parks, etc. Never been sorry for a second. Be patient, good used ones are out there at a fair price. Ron

Portland, OR. Everytime I was there I was told to expect no sun. My husband was acting plant manager in Tuellatin, next to Tigard, close to Aswego. Correct me on the spellings. I had sunshine all the time. My husband would leave home on a Monday from Iowa and be home Friday night. I got to see my sister-in-law on the San Juan Islands and see whales and a unhappy sea walrus while I was out there. It looked like my husband's sister-in-laws.

Tuellatin is actually Tualatin
Aswego is really Lake Oswego.

Trust me, you're closer to the spelling than most!

Donna:

Yes, Lake Oswego. That is where the hotel was where my husband lived . Tualtin was were the plant was. Forest harvesting machines/demolition scissors. Pretty far from a combine. We are back in the lumber/chipping business 10 hours closer then Montana was where my husband was involved in the oil business but the same corporation that got us to where we are now.

Glad you enjoyed your time in the Portland area and the sun came out while you were here. It obviously wasn't this last spring/summer.... sigh.
