Bought a 1998 Casita 17’ SD new and loved it for a couple of years till we were bitten by the ‘MOTORHOME BUG”. Bought a 2000 Coachmen and after struggling with that monster for 4 years bought a 2005 Scamp 19’ Deluxe 5vr. Due to my age this was going to be our final camper. Well, arthritis hit my wife hard and she could not manage the in/out of the loft very well. So, the Scamp is being sold and we have our last final camper on order, a 2007 Casita 17’ SD. (Can anyone say ‘full circle’)

Hmm,, Wondering...
It would be interesting to see sizes. I keep getting the impression that the number of people with larger trailers vs the number of people with smaller trailers has been going up. It seems to that there are more people with 16' 17, 19, and now the large Big Foot now vs those with 13' or 12'.

I have no desire to go bigger than a 17ft FG unit.All my friends have big trailers but only go to local areas.They won't travel with them due to gas prices.I will stay small and not be afraid to travel where ever i want to go.Gas prices will rise and continue to rise.

To me a 17' is a big trailer.

Trailer: Casita
Posts: 451
The reason(s) I bought the Casita 17"
1-It was the only FG trailer I could find that was 73" min inside height except for the Big Foot, Escape, and the Scamp 5th
2-Scamp burned down
3-The Escape was expensive and a long way off
4-Bigfoot was very expensive and much heavier
5-My son lives in Dallas and I got to drive down for a visit

So that's how the Casita won out

Are there any "new" trailers today that have more than 73" inside and weigh less than my Casita? (about 3000 when loaded up)

If I was to purchase today I would consider the scamp 5th but that about it.

Trailer: 73 Boler and 76 Surfside
Posts: 6
I'm one of the confused ones. I have a tm14 Surfside and a 13' Boler. I rough it in the Boler and use the Surfside for more civilizd activities. I used to have a 16' stickie. I think it was a Casa Grande or something like that. Its interesting to see how many of the old Bolers and Trills have survived. It wasn''t that long ago in my mind when they first came on the market. I guess the years just fly by. I hope they slow down soon though.

I absolutely love my Trails West Campster. It is perfect for us and has gone over some very bumpy roads and steep mountains behind my 4 cylinder subaru.

Guess the main reason is that we live about 130 miles from Rice ... and then because we enjoyed our first Casita (98C17SD).

Trailer: Eggcamper 2007 ('Wolf's Lair')

Didn't see where to "add a comment" so will do so here. Our FGRV is an EggCamper. Just got it last month. Bought it with an unfinished interior and no appliances, shower/bathroom etc. as the EggCamper Kit. As far as I know I bought the first kit version sold. I'm having a lot of fun outfitting it the way I want. Should be finished by spring for the summer camping season.

BTW - the first question most people ask is how much it weighs. Weight as purchased was 1500 pounds. It towed great from Michigan to Colorado.

Trailer: 2008 Airstream Sport 22 / 03 Toyota Tundra (Former 05 Casita Owner)
Posts: 15
Well the Poll didn't let me select more than one previously owned fiberglass trailer. I started with a 13ft Burro, had a 16ft Burro, a 19ft Scamp 5th wheel, and now a Casita 17 LD. I also own a 25ft Airstream and a 1973 22ft vintage Argosy, made by Airstream. We now are downsizing from the 2004 25ft Airstream to the Casita.

Thumbs up

Howdy, I just been tent camping but now want to try an Egg type of trailer. I'm kind ah leaning towards an Escape but I wonder if I will fit the bed and inside shower. I'm 6'3" and 270 lbs. The Casita 17' Liberty is my second choice as it has a Big bed. Both have an outside shower if I don't fit in the inside one. My wife and I are seniors and want to be Snowbirds boondocking in the winter in the Southwest states and then coming back to Oregon for the summer. Thanks, blackrockjoe

The Escape is a good trailer but the bathroom will be too small for you to stand up for a shower. I am 5'10" or so and sit in the shower, which works out fine for me. We use the outside shower for the kids and gear.

You are within a days drive of the factory and someone in Eureka California has an Escape, maybe you could visit for a peek.

Trailer: Scamp 19 ft 5th Wheel

Send a message via Yahoo to neilbarb
We had 17' Casita FD that we bought new on 2005. While wintering in Texas last year the wife decided we needed a little more room. Decided to order 19' Scamp 5th Wheel. We now are in Florida in it and like it very much. We did stop in Hohenwald, Tenn on way south and looked at the new 17' Oliver. It is a little pricey but it is quite impressive. If they come out with 20 footer we might just try one of those. We used the Casita on trip to Alaska and lived in it full time for over a year. We will stay in the Scamp until May.
