Hi: Kai in Seattle... You'll need copious amounts of "Hot air" for your DIY project!!!

Hi, Alf S,
If you're read some of my lengthy posts, you know I have access to the hot air--but I really don't want it to rise...just lay there while we plaster it with 'glass...so medium-warm air would be OK. We have plenty of that, too!


BEST-
Kai

I own a Ranger instead of an F150, for the same reason.
I own a Scamp13 instead of a bulgemobile, because it has the quality of molded fiberglass in a size which fits my needs and satisfies my requirements, especially for size, then proven durability,then style and utility. If I lost my 13 and there was not something similar available I would no longer own a travel trailer.

Just to be clear.... I have never gone back to my site after viewing a larger trailer wishing I had one. If anything, I must resist the feeling of being
"Smug about Snug"

I don't own a Trillium so I can say I own a Trillium. I own a Trillium to go camping. Right now it's the best fit for me. I'm not a salesman. I will not try to insult your intelligence by saying it's perfect in every way. It's not. If my Trillium were destroyed, I'd buy another camper. I prefer fiberglass but if there are none that suit me I'll buy something else. As I said, I like to go camping.

I wish somebody would buy EggCamper and get them back into production! I love the idea and openness of it. But what I would like to see is make it more functional like the amenities of a loaded Casita 17SD.....

Edit: Now that I think about it, I take it back - I just wish Bigfoot would add 6" to the height of their 25RQ !!

Edit again: I take that back too.....I just wish Bigfoot would start building the Silver Cloud again!!!

I like your first suggestion best. An EggCamper with propane sounds great to me!

Or how about...
D. All of the above

I guess an all electric egg would suit some folks, but that's why I've never even looked at the Eggcamper.
