Hi there!

Name is Jeff. Just registered today. Interested in learnnig all i can about these "eggs." Looking to buy a travel trailer, but probably not until the end of the season. Prices tend to go down after Labor Day and last time i looked i wasn't rich. Have lots of questions, but this isn't the forum for those. Just want to say hi. Regards,J.D.

Good day Jeff. Are you looking for a smaller egg or something larger like a dual axle Bigfoot etc? What is your tow vehicle?

Tow vehicle is an 02 ford f150 supercab. Primarily looking at16 to 18 foot trailers. Smaller just doesn't look doable to me. Difficult to find in any brand. I can buy a "conventional??" much cheaper than an egg but It seems that if you keep the egg in good shape you can travel for a couple of years and still get your money back out of them. You're not throwing away money on something that depreciates by the day.

Sounds like sound thinking to me. Good luck in your search.

BTW. I haven't noticed huge swings in seasonal egg pricing. If you find a nice trailer at a fair price move quickly. I bought a Rialta motorhome a year early because it was pristine and such a rare find. Sold it 3 years and numerous trips later for a tidy profit.
