Is everyone as obsessed with eggs?

I'm new to this site but there must be something wrong with me! I want every egg I see. Read about them constantly. Love Casitas, Scamps, Burros, Trilliums, even the old apaches though they are not quite the egg family. My bucket list.....Casita or scamp 13' with bath. Is there any cure for this? How did everyone decide which one was "the one"?

I can't have just one, I have two. Some of us have three, or more...

I believe most purchase what fits their needs and constraints, such as how much can their tow vehicle handle, how much can they afford, how often will they use it and where (off the grid, only in parks) will they use it, do they need AC where they camp (humid climates), where will they be storing it (in garage, storage facilities), and what size are they comfortable pulling. One big thing that gets us to purchase, is what is available in their "search circle".
We have been blessed twice with 13' Scamps in Arizona.

Hi Bill, to FiberglassRV, we're glad you're here

I'm a visual person, I think eggs are cute. When I was shopping, budget, layout, tow needs all fit in the needs portion of the equation. But I knew if I didn't like the look, it wouldn't be for me. Consequently... I bought an egg!

Best of luck on your egg hunt!

Hi, as Frederick said some of us can't decide and have multiples! I have been up to 3 at times and seem to always have 2. Once you start looking seriously you will start to notice little differences and some may appeal more than others but they are all great. The other good thing is they tend to hold their value so you can try a few and usually not loose money if you sell.
Good luck.

Sites like FGRV encourage enthusiasts to flock together for mutual reinforcement. My personal enthusiasm is for the utility and durability of a glass box. Having spent a considerable stretch of my misguided youth tapping 55gal drums of resin, tossing around milled fibers and micro balloons, spraying gelcoat, laying up, and smelling like styrene 24/7, I'm certainly not in a state of mystical communion with the things but I have a fair idea whence their virtues and limitations derive.

I like my eggs deviled.

I'm a first time travel trailer buyer.
I spent a year or two looking, drooling, desiring, comparing.
It's all about personal lifestyle, needs, etc.
I started with the typical stick search. Then moved into the
teardrop arena and found this site and moved into the egg class.

For me personally, the sticks won on initial cost.
Teardrops won on weight and smaller TV capabilities.
Then the glass eggs.......hmmmmmmm. They win on all my scales.

The glass eggs weigh heavier on the scale of investment as well as luxury items.
New, the initial cost may be higher, but longevity and resale will quickly tip the scales.

And to the Forums Bill
When first starting out on a search, the search is part of the joy,
even if it can be agonizing at times.........LOL

As the owner of four Trillium trailers, I am not obsessed at all. I only shop continuously, research the brand, and play with, (work on) the trailers as much as possible. I can quit anytime.

I too looked at bunches of options, stick built to FG to small motorhome, watched the sale prices speculated and drooled. Like Carl I found that part of the fun.

Bought the Scamp we went to look at because like Everest "it was there" and DW said "Oh it's so cute" despite being gray and black on the outside, dusty, sticky and black on the inside.

Can't argue when the cute potential overcomes being a mess.

Went camping the next day.

Best advise is to attend a rally near you and see a bunch of different makes/models/sizes all in one spot. Nothing bets actually going and sitting in one for a few minutes in helping to decide which is "the one".

When I first started looking for an egg and was sure based on photos and what I read here I know which make/size was "the one". That was until I had an opportunity to actually see one and sit in "the one" I thought I wanted for a few minutes. I love "the one" I ended up buying but have since sat in a few more trailers and now know "the one" in my future is really a different one.

Had to laugh because as true as this is in eggs,
my mind went to the dating websites.

Thanks for the unintended humor.
