    I travel for work, and any hotels/campgrounds are out of my pocket instead of being paid by the company. Last year I spent about $4000 in hotels, and so far this year I've stayed in my bike trailer for 9 weeks.


    Spending that much on a hotel when I have a truck perfectly capable of towing a camper is dumb. Staying in a 14' bike trailer got old quick, not to mention I'm limited on campgrounds because of not having plumbing so I'm restricted to places that have showerhouses.


    I used to have a 30' fifth wheel that I used for work. It was older (early 90's) and needed a roof and some rotten wood fixed, rather than dumping a pile of money in it I unloaded it for cheap and hadn't replaced it yet.



    Otherwise I'd agree completely, and if anything I probably would have bought a pop-up for a few thousand bucks.

    IMG_0357.JPG Could anybody here suggest a good way to sell my unicorn camper? Seems it is too rare for my local dealers to identify.

    Put it in the flea market section?

    Dealers must be brain dead if they can't identify it- no shortage of info on the internet....:dunno

    It's not that it's to rare. They can't make money on it like selling a new one. Dumb, they might get a loyal customer that refers others. Which would make them more .

    There's a fibreglass forum for trailers such as this, Boler, bigfoot, etc. Here and CL as well.

    Forget the dealer.

    Trailered it 600kms home and it was surprisingly stable going up and down twisty mountain roads.
    It came with a sun shade awning type thing and another big fully enclosed vestibule tent which probably won't get much use as we intend to travel and camp one to three nights in each location.
    The awning got a test fitting in front of my house

    Good sites but I never heard of the Egg. Very familair with Bigfoot, Boler, Escape and some of the older types like Trillium and Scamp.

    This Egg thing looks enticing. N22, what kind of sale price do you have in mind?

    I'll take it for $9. Let me know where to pick it up.

    Can you break a $10 or do I need exact change?

    I'd be concerned that it's wearing Quebec plates and it's still hitched to the car. LOL

    Why? What magical thing happens when a kid comes along that keeps you from camping? Heck with a trailer it would be easier. It's a pain in the ass thing to get a wee one to take a nap in a tent, but not so bad in an RV. Our Imp started camping at maybe 4 months and she still loves it.

    Kids shouldn't end your life as you know it, they should add to your life.

    Totally agree with taking the kids camping. We did with ours and still do. We camped with them in diapers. 2up with each of them now when I can.
    But so much rides on the new mom and child. I'm just saying I would have waited.

    I have a 2017 wolf pup 17' that has suited me well camping 4 people for up to a week. The holding tanks are smallish for more than 2 people so you have to be mindful of use when dry camping, but full hookups are plentiful here in the south.

    I can easily dry camp 4-5 days with only 2 people including a "whore bath" hot shower each day.

    It has been a great upgrade after tent camping for decades.

    If you do a lift and larger tires the stabilizing jacks will be to short on any kind of slope, so take that into consideration. Mine is stock and could use more substantial stabilizer jacks even at stock height. I have ran FS roads as well as knee deep creek crossings without issue.

    Is that a cat in the pack & play? We really are happy with our TC, but it's a tight squeeze for us three plus the dog. We have an 8' box with a 9' camper
