Thanks for all the generous comments.  I enjoy the challenge of writing the posts.

 

The trip blogs posts are now all done ending Oct 28th.

 

Time to start planning the next trip.  Maybe the Owyhees and Silver City.  Or maybe a trip to the Washington coast this winter during a storm.  And I want to go to the Seven Devils in Idaho.  And...    :)  

There are so many places to visit just a shortage of time.

 

Camp on.

Frank

Before the Bigfoot I had a Casita.  I suggest your friends look at a Casita.  I liked the Casita but switched to the Bigfoot because: 

  • Easier to have a second battery.  In a Casita I would have had to switch to sealed batteries with one inside the trailer.
  • My Casita was welded to the axle (not all are welded) making it harder to flip the axle. 
  • I couldn't figure out how to install solar panels on a Casita.

After I made the decision to switch to a Bigfoot I watched Craiglist and the fiberglass trailer web sites for a used one.  After a few months the one I have came up for sale in Seattle.  I jumped on it. 

 

The A-liner has also intrigued me.  I ran into one and chatted with the owner.  They had had it for 10 years and love the trailer.

Camping with a small trailer.  Everyday is a good day to go camping.

Thanks for the Casita (and Bigfoot) info.  

 

Your experience with the A-liner owner leads to the phrase common to A-frame hardside pop-up owners:  One minute to set up, 30 minutes to answer questions.  

 

It's a ton of fun.

 

Enjoy!

Amsolar.com has solar panel mounting feet that mount with the UHB tape on fiberglass roofs.

Hey, I enjoyed reading your blog and meeting you at Valley of the Gods. Of course I forgot the milage you told me to drive to find Monarch Cave. Oh, well, something to find next trip.
