I arrive at the Fiberglass RV Rally in Quartzsite, Ariz. on Feb. 10. It would probably be more accurate to call this a molded fiberglass rally, because that’s the kind of trailers that are here.
For those not in the know, most molded fiberglass RVs are made with a top and a bottom half, joined together in the center. For Casitas, that join point is the silver “belly band” that runs the width of the trailer. Molded fiberglass trailers hold up really well over time because there are less leak points than with traditional “slab” sided trailers and there is no wood in the walls or ceiling to rot so if there is a leak, the trailer keeps its structural integrity.
There are a lot of other brands of molded fiberglass “egg” trailers besides Casita. I see Scamps, Escapes, Olivers, Bigfoots (or would that be Bigfeet?), and even an old Burro out here in lengths ranging from 13 to 23 feet. In the above picture, you can see the nose of a little fifth wheel poking out from behind the older Casita. That’s a 19′ Scamp and yes it’s still made with two halves joined together.
