Donna, without a doubt there are tradeoffs. This particular Aliner has a porta potti but no shower, in fact no hot water heater. I'll have to heat water on the stove for washing dishes. It takes roughly 1 minute to set up, which isn't too bad for a lunch break, but for potti breaks I'll certainly default to B&M bathrooms when possible. There is less storage than in an egg, and it's all down low. And of course it has seams, so an owner must be more vigilant for leaks
. The pluses are its low profile for extremely easy towing, an open-feeling interior, and a different kind of cuteness than that of the FG eggs. Oh, and the big factor for me... the price was within my budget.
Would I rather have an Escape
? Yes! Among all the eggs, Escape
is the one I'd really like to buy. But I haven't found one for $7K yet.
