Hello to all FiberGlassers!

I'm a first time poster but a looong time lurker. Thank you all for the inside information I've gleaned over this time.

Four years ago my wife and I bought a pop-up. Although luxurious compared to a tent I immediately knew upon the 1st wet weather take down and subsequent set up to dry in the garage the mistake we made. I vowed to make our next choice the correct choice.

After much research and hemming/hawing we know Fiberglass is our correct choice. Based on MY size, our TV capacity, our budget and needed vs. wanted options our choice will be... EggCamper!

Or maybe Scamp or Parkliner?? Hahaha 3 choices are much better than 300.
Again- Thank you all very much for the help.

Welcome, Chad!

I was saved from that same mistake 3 years ago. Several tent trailers were sold before I had a chance to view them. Then a Scamp showed up on the side of the road and the rest is history.

Since you have the tent trailer you can take your time and snag the perfect egg. Happy hunting!

We used tent even winter camped, also had a tent trailer it wore out, a home made unit bed rail frame with plywood construction and truck axle. Also used a 27' woods stick built but now have our dream machine. Hope you find yours :-)

Just so you can get more help, what is your tow vehicle and do you know it's factory tow rating (from the owners manual)?
