We love our new Eggcamper

Just picked up our Egg and went on 4000 mile trip down Mississippi River. It was great.

Oops

We weren't floating, but traveled the road next to the great river.

Dick and Ann, welcome to FiberglassRV. We're all glad you're enjoy your brand of molded trailer. I believe in "love the one you're with." Make tons of memories along the way.

We bought our Egg Camper in the spring. Took it on a 5000 mile trip to Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, etc. We love ours, too. Had three camping trips with it right here in Michigan. The factory is less than 50 miles from where we live. Did you get the all-electric version?

We did get the all-electric Egg. No worries about propane. We have a fiberglass
sailboat and worried about the propane in the galley all the time. We are looking
forward to a lot of land-yachting. Ann and Dick

Perspective

[QUOTE=Dick and Ann;279704]We did get the all-electric Egg. No worries about propane.

I have read many concerns about the safety of Propane on the Forum. The reality is all our commonly used energy sources are very safe, including electricity, natural gas, propane, liquid petroleum, gasoline and fuel oil.

Very few people die as a result of propane or LP fires or explosions, in a typical year it's about 23 people. For comparison about 550 people a year are electrocuted and die as a result in their homes each year. I'm sure part of the reason is higher usage of electicity, but also people are probably less careful with electricity because they believe it's safer.

Similarly we have shown a lot of concern about unvented propane heaters (all built in propane heaters are vented). Unvented heaters over the last 20 years have resulted in about 100 deaths.

Simply the reality is that propane has a great safety record.

It's also obvious that electric appliances cost less for a manufacturer to purchase and install. I don't know if that's there reason for all electric, but it's certainly a possibility.

If you are typically a hookup camper an all electric rig works well.

Dick and Ann,
Welcome from another EggCamper owner. Ours is a 2007. It was all electric when we bought it, but I've since added a propane furnace and a combo electric/propane water heater so that we have the option of camping off-grid. Campsites without electric are common here in New Hampshire. You'll seldom find electric and water hookups here in the northeast at state and federal park campgrounds. Once you get further south, just about every park has hookups, so it's not a problem... probably to accomodate A/C.

We do love the spaciousness of the EggCamper, and if you're handy, it's a great rig for customizations. Aside from the propane appliances, I've added shelves and drawers, TV, and solar panels to ours. Sure is comfy.

We're getting ready to drag it down to Florida right afer Christmas and if things work out, we're planning to spend a weekend at the Sebring Scamp Camp in February.

Ron

We've been to the Sebing Scamp Camp and loved it/ We picked up a lot of tips in our two days. Unfortunately we'll have left Florida before than.

Safe travels down.

Hi, we have a Honda 2000 generator but it is pretty noisy. We haven't had to use it a lot. We are heading down to Florida In January . Looking for some warm weather.
