Hi, Nicole. My retirement plans ranged from hiking the Ft and At in my 40s, to purchasing a motorcycle camper Aspen and pulling it with my Toyota to a camper van as I got older and more stove up with chronic pain. And cats moved back into my life after an absence. It suddenly occurred to me that I could get somewhat back into the wilderness by owning an RV. I started to research this (I shoulda been a researcher in my former life, eh? Everything I do is either totally spontaneous or researched to death) and found that "ultralight" conventional campers were running 6,000 to 8,000 lbs and the articles and videos I could get on purchasing second hand were scaring me to death with all the potential, expensive-to fix problems. I was looking at a magazine when I saw ads for scamps and casitas in the back. I recalled seeing a scamp
once or twice in my backpacking days as I was heading for the backcountry-that led me to this website- and this website was how I discovered the Parkliner
and the Lil Snoozy
. Choose the Lil Snoozy
over the Parkliner
as DH SWEARS he will come camping with me now he is semi retired. (Not holding my breath on that) But I have 3.5 cats and the basement on the Snoozy will make a fine place to stash their extra large litter box and cat beds. Hope you will find that FG camper that is just right for you.
