"BUT there are some downsides too... like spending lots of time so close to the coast means lots of exposure to corrosive salty humidity. Another reason I'm looking at a fiberglass unit this time around."

The Lil Snoozy has a galvanized frame.

As well they should, that frame was built by a boat trailer company.

But that fear would rule out all other FGRV's without a galvanized or aluminum frame, as well as pop-ups.

The Black, 1983 StarCraft, pop-up in post #5, came from an oceanside venue (Ventura, CA) and was used extensively for beach camping and, after more than 25 years of use didn't show any damaging rust or deterioration as a result. But that may vary by make?

When I joined the North-South Skirmish Association, one of my team mates gave me a very dilapidated sticky to use as I got started. By the time it collapsed I had searched this forum and the old Fiberglas For Sale forum an found the Burro "of my dreams" to buy. Unfortunately, it was in Chicago and I am in Virginia, but fortunately I'm retired and have more time than money, so I just drove up there and bought it. I've pulled it behind a 2000 Chevy Astro and a 1993 Chevy Blazer and have just bought a 2003 Honda CR-V as my new TV for the 2016 season. Through it all I'm happy to have the solid, stable platform of a FGRV for my camping. Glad I skipped the pop-up step!

You know, I had already discovered the Lil Snoozy months ago before I even found this forum and I am seriously considering one of those. However, there's no way I can afford a new one right now and they haven't been out long enough for used ones to show up very often, so I'll most likely get something a little more common like a used Casita at first. But I do like the design innovations of that Lil Snoozy... a lot!
