Likes I said I am new to RV'S. I would like a RV for retirement for one to three people at most. Usually one or two. I would like a eggshell for a number of reasons.
1) I would like to keep it all year on my driveway. I have looked into this. Because of bylaws I can do it provided it is parked in my garage. Problem is height of garage door is 82 1/4 inches high. It might be possible to put it in garage if I use smaller rims (no rubber) and/or a rims cut down just for storage. Other choice is to heighten the garage door opening. I will try and avoid that if possible. Anyone know the diameter of the drums without the rims? Anyone done this and what was the net loss in height? I would like to use a Trillium
as they seem to be the lowest in height.
2) I like the eggshells because they are light
, narrow, short and hopefully easy to tow. Great for one or two people.
3)They are easy on gas and can be towed by many cars/mini vans. My mini van is rated for 2000 lbs. (I do not have the tow package which is 3500 lbs.) but I had to replace the rad. with a heavy duty one. So I bet it is now 2400 lbs. Will add a large tranny cooler when I get a eggshell. That should raise it to 2800 lbs.
4) Looking for a late model/new eggshell like a Trillum size. No pop ups. Prefer same Dimensions as the Trillium
( no wider and no higher), must have a shower with a portable potti.
Right now I am looking for a Trillium
or a Scamp
. Is the Scamp
100% fiberglass? I have done a lot looking into the Trillium and it falls a little short of what I need but is still a possibility
Please your opinions especially any
one with the garage door opening height problem.
