Long time snooper, first time poster - Hello!

Hi All,

First post here! Been reading about these fun campers and reading your forum for some time. Love the eggs!

Im just here to learn basically, and purchase anytime the right egg comes along. Realize they are hard to find so most buy new. But I do like buying used stuff so I may wait a bit and be ready to jump.

So Im 6'5-6'6" tall. Wife is 5'1". Its just the 2 of us, as the kids have moved out. We still have 7-12 years of work (uggg). But we "may" throw caution to the wind, sell the farm, and full time it once we retire!

That being said, I think our best bet is a "EggCamper" brand. Love the room in it, headroom, open plate for a diy customization, etc. If anybody has on and wants to sell, please yell. Live close to Cincinnati OH.

Nice to meet you all!

Thanks Frank!

I also wanted to say I could be open to other makes, so throw suggestions at me! Id like to be able to stand up straight (6'5" min headroom). Towing is not an issue because I will always use a 1/2 ton truck or SUV. Dont want a fifth wheel. Length not an issue, I could do a longer one. But headroom and bed length is! I want a bed size I can sleep nicely in!

Thanks all!

Our ParkLiner (I think) has 6' 5" headroom! Only weighs 2100#s dry, queen size bed, dinette, kitchen, frig, AC, furnace, toilet, shower. Give them some consideration: ParkLiner Fiberglass Ultralight Travel Trailers - – Take me somewhere fun! ™

Great Tip! I'll check into those! It definitly opens up options for alower prices if I have more used ones to pick from. Thanks!

Based on the aforementioned issues/non-issues I can reccomend you looking at the new 22 foot Oliver. It has 78 inches of head room and it is 78 inches wide so it would fit your frame nicely. For what it's worth, we will be in the Cincinnati area in May if you'd like to see one.
