Hi, Jack. I'm hoping to see one next week in NJ. $2500 deposit. Still searching for the extra aisle width for the dogs. They said we could still join the Lil Snoozy rally if we'd like!!!

I have maple cabinets in my Scamp. After 12 years, I was sick of that . Loved the change to golden oak in my Escape. I figure if I last 12 years with it, maybe it will be time to just paint the cabinetry. I think everything can get 'old' and dated if you keep it long enough. Oh wait... I just looked in the mirror

Right now the wait is about 4-5 months. Do not forget, with the current exchange differential they are "25% off" currently.

I love painted cabinets. Maple paints better than oak. Something for me to consider, should I go forward with the Escape.

They have a 17B for sale right now, ready to go, with maple. No A/C though, if I understand correctly.

If it's the same one I saw in this forum, it's sold.

Not to say anything negative about any brand I would encourage you to visit a rally and walk through several trailers. Some major considerations that you can only appreciate by visiting are headroom, pass by width, table/belly clearance, and the bed. I donít know anyone who, during a trailer tour, wouldnít let you take your shoes off and lay on the bed. When we sold our 19
It was the first thing the buyer wanted to do and the one thing we would insist on him doing.

+100 best deal is the one that suits you the best! A great deal on a trailer you won’t like long term is not that good of a deal. Paying full market price for the one that suits you best is a much better deal.

I think people focus too much on price and not enough on floorplan. Of course everyone has their budget. And if the “best” trailer for you doesn’t fit the budget then get the second best (compromise). We thought we got a good deal on our first FG trailer until we figured out we really hated it. Oops!

Unfortunately, Lil Snoozy has pad locked the doors and seemingly run off with a lot of sizable down payments. So, scratch them off the list of possibilities. I had seen one at a gathering in the UP of Michigan last summer and liked it quite a bit. Hopefully they will be produced again some day by someone more trustworthy.

Layout trumps all. While I think Casita's have an overall higher build quality (they also cost more), then Scamp, I hate all of their layouts. The Scamp layout 4 is perfect for me, and ticks off all the things I was looking for in a trailer. And now after having it for a year, I still find it near perfect for my use, and worked out better then I could have hopped.

You are far better off looking at all the layouts and think about what you want in a trailer then go stand in one and see if it will work for your needs, then picks a manufacture that makes that layout.

So many great choices!

You are pretty close to several places who hold rallies in AR and TX, which would give you a chance to see what works for you. We traveled in a 2004 Casita Deluxe which we bought used for 5 years, two of us and a German Shepard, and loved it. Easy to tow, easy to pack. Now we need a bit more room for grandkids so recently purchased a 2015 Escape 21 which fits our needs better. We are enjoying the extra room -no longer jumping over the dog at night! 😉

By the way, even if you buy one and later find out your needs change, fiberglass campers sell quickly if taken care of. We sold our Casita for $100 less than we paid for it five years ago. Owning a moulded fiberglass is a win-win no matter what you choose, as long as you get a floor plan that fits your lifestyle.

We’ve owned 3 different FG trailer’s since 2010 . A used 16 ft , a new 17 ft and a 21ft . Based on price , initial quality and required repairs / maintenance our 17 ft Casita comes out on top . It’s certainly not the most luxurious but it has consistently performed well for us .
