New to the RV life

Hello all, I'm Steve and last March, 2020 I bought a 2018 Casita Feedom Deluxe that was in practically new condition. Due to personal reasons I couldn't travel until August. I spent 2 months adding solar to it, then a few more doing other "modifications". I'm thrilled with the results.

My first trip was a 5,000 mile, 3 week trip from North Carolina to Arizona and wanderings in between. I didn't need to plug in at all during the trip.

I'm pleased to join Fiberglassrv.com and be able to compare notes.

Hope to see ya'all around.

Steve

From Toy Sunrader to a 13í Scampí

Hi All!
I joined a long time ago but have not been here for a good while. Glad to be back.
Iím downsizing from a class c to a 13í travel trailer. Iíve found it hard, when camping In the class c on my own, to leave the campground without packing everything up if I forgot something vital.
Iím leaving to pick up a 5 month old 2020 13í Scamp. Iím super excited, and I hope to Learn a lot and hopefully share knowledge with you too. Happy camping!í

New guy here from Indiana. Picked up a 2001 Casita Spirit Deluxe last weekend that's a bit of a project. It needs quite a bit of TLC but the price was right. The Wife and I are really excited and planning to have it ready to go in the spring. Being from the home state of the RV capital of the country we feel we can get it done.

Stopping by for tips, tricks and ideas form the RV world! ~Ron

Renovating 1985 Wide Body 17' Burro

Hi All,
Been lurking for awhile and really appreciate the wisdom shared on the boards! My partner purchased a 1985 Wide Body 17' Burro in 2010 and got it into shape for some basic camping. He rebuilt the frame, axle and floor, redid the electric and added great lights for reading. He installed a new fridge, A/C and hot water heater. Over the past 4 years we haven't used it and we decided to undertake another reno, redoing the kitchen and bathroom, cosmetic patching and painting, and hopefully getting new windows.

I've already found some wonderful answers here and look forward to learning more and sharing what we are doing.

Save travels,
PJ

Hi Frankie, it appears were in the same boat. My wife died this year and I bought 17' Freedom Deluxe. I needed a way to get out.

Maybe we'll cross paths. Good luck.

Steve

Hello to all, although I've been a member for a number of months while learning about Fiberglass campers, I am now the excited owner of a new-to-me 2018 Scamp 13 w/bath. I'll be towing with a 2 door Jeep Wrangler JL and camping solo with my American Shepherd Stella. I look forward to meeting other forum members on my travels.

New Trillium 1300 Owners

Hi Everyone,
I joined last month when I was doing research on what to buy for our growing family (2 year old and 6 week old), and this week we became proud new owners of a 1973 Trillium 1300. Needs a bit of work and while I've already learned so much from reading past posts (thanks everyone!) I'll likely be posting a few questions here and there, and starting to share info from our experience. Thanks for the welcome and we're looking forward to chatting with more of you soon,
Alex
Vancouver, BC

P.S. Dave - we'll send you photos and the closet data sheet / SN soon (as I noticed it wasn't on the list).

Getting one you can use right away is a good idea.
See site notes about what to look for.

We wanted a washroom, the 4 burner oven was not high on our list we like to cook outside and shower not so much but the not water is nice. The fridge and furnace was a must. It had to have no canvass pop outs as she felt they were bear takeout windows.

Make a list like washroom for night time or boondocking, furnace with thermostat so warm on cold night or winter camping, hot water when wanted, stove top min or maybe you want more. Then look for a trailer that meets your needs. More is ok though; eg. we would like air but fans are ok.

We have a vintage unit and love it at under 2000 lbs it meets our needs but remember old means you will have to give it tender love and care. We have had ours for many years but it needs regular love and care. 13' boler is usually under 1000 lbs and 17' 1500 to 2500 lbs depends on options and fiberglass layup. stickers all say same weight on trailers from the location ours was made so scales to get real weight. Some were weighed with water in, battery and tanks full in past but today they weigh them with no battery, propane or water, and call it dry weight. You can get a Tow vehicle right to pull your dream home on wheels or you can get a trailer your current car can pull. We purchase a new car to pull our trailer.

Hi everyone - I am Tomas G. writing from beautiful Vancouver Island. We are hoping to get a trailer over the next couple of months if the right one comes along. From past experience I know that when it comes to things like this it is always good to have a community of enthusiasts to ask questions and advice from so hoping to hear from all of you as we begin to look. From what I have seen so far this looks like an amazing place.

Hi all question right off the bat

Hi all you wise folks. My family and I have been Looking for a used Bigfoot since last summer. I think I found my dream 17 footer but theyíre asking 18000 Canadian.... for a 1984. Itís been redone- I can tell with new water pump and heat. I havenít asked yet about the window seals but they say theyíre open to having it inspected. Iím just wondering if the price is still reasonable? Iím just about to graduate and have two kiddos so my budget really was 15,000 and under. Should I try and negotiate? I worry if I do someone will just swipe in and purchase it from under me. Very liken you what you think I should ask to ensure what theyíve valued it at is valid. Thanks all.

Seems a bit steep to me even with all the upgrades. I doubt they will get that but you never know. I have a model that vintage and it looks it, but it runs fine and everything works. I may sell it this year but I know I'll be asking half that amount. If it was me buying, I'd tell them this is all I have and be prepared to move on if you don't get it...I just can't see a 1984 trailer for that price.
