Deryk,

Maybe you should test a few campers out before buying. Many people who buy 13' campers later find themselves wanting larger ones. Many people would let you check theirs out before you buy one.

If you are handy, there has been a 16' VT Uhaul fixer-upper for sale in NY on Craigslist for a while if it is still there.

Thanks Donna, I did email the more recent ad for a 3rd time... I hate when people dont take an ad down if its sold or email you back "sold" just so you know.

I saw another one come up in florida lol... just too far. I came across a casita in rhode island, had 1 picture...asked for more pictures and some questions, got amessage back would have them by last weekend...still no responce. There is a newer one in NC, wants 13k, which unless its a 2012 for the side bath front couch its almost the cost of a new one.

I did email someone here who has the 2010 scamp 13 deluxe wood.... looks real nice inside, and sadly Im usually always solo, so if I convert the dinette to a foldup couch could drop it down for company or leave it as a couch with a 30" wide base so I can sleep on it and tuck my sheets and blankets behind it during the day, and I have this nifty teak table and bracket from my boat Swing-Away Table Pedestal 1660105 that has a bracket that would mount on the side of the dinette and you can loosen it a little and it will swing out of the way when not needed....I think the 13 could be nice and cozy!

Hello, We have a 2008 casita spirit delux with all opitions encluding solar panel. I love to chat with you concerning your new life style with camping. I lived on Long Island for 36 years having fun boating and fishing. I am detailing the camper and plan to list it with pictures next week. I forgot to give you contact information. Phone #804.758.1675 or email salmon underscore gerald @ yanoo.com Good luck

Deryk; I was thinking about you today, we are in a campground in SC, and a couple from California came in with a nice Vardo. Built on a tandem axle trailer, about 16 feet long or so. We got a quick look in it, it was a three year project, and they did a nice job. Good luck on your search for a camper. Bob

Hi, Deryk.
Sorry to hear of your recent losses but life is like that.
I'm surprised no one has pointed out that there are several very fine trailers made much closer to your location:

ParkLiner Fiberglass Ultralight Travel Trailers -

in Gibsonville, NC

and

Small Travel Trailer: Camper: Smoakin Concepts Composites

in St. Matthews, SC

LIGHTWEIGHT FIBERGLASS TRAVEL TRAILER

in GRANDVILLE, MI

Good luck on your quest. As a former sailor, I groove on your sailing. We had a Balboa 20 for 30 years and towards the end did not get the use that we should have and sold it. Strangely enough, we used it more when we lived in Wisconsin than we have since moving to Washington what with Puget Sound and all. Our kids were older and our life styles changed with the move.

Thanks Roger, I like the look of the parkliner and the snoozy, the egg is too white inside for me. The rat fur at least tones it down a little. They should consider a cream colour on the inside or something to break it up. But all 3 are right above my price range lol

Smile Your Price Range

Thanks for your answer, Deryk. One thing you should consider is the cost of driving several hundred miles further to obtain your rig. If you get 20mpg, have to drive 800 miles further, and pay $3.50 per gal, that is a further $140 not including incidentals like food and lodging.
Whatever you decide, I know you will love your egg as much as we love ours

One thing we found to tone down white fiberglass surfaces is contact paper. We like the wood grain.
