I purchased my Camp-Inn 8 years ago, Spent a little over 12 grand for it and havn't regreted it for a minute. I've towed it over 15,000 miles and have over 350 nights in it, It's held up beautifully, No leaks and only minor tweaking. I couldn't be more pleased with the craftsmanship and the company itself. Not to mention all these Teardrop manufactures are small business owners building products here in America. I own a small manufacturing business and build thing out of wood all day long and chose to buy because I recognized quality.
As for the resale value, I'm dead serious I think i could get back most of what i payed for it new. Obviously there prices have gone up in 8 years and they have a 6 month waiting list. Just as Kit or Benroy's are considered classics, who to say in 50 years Camp-inn wont be.
I've camped with hundreds of Teardroppers and their's no better peeps to camp with, Whether you build your own or buy a manufactured or rebuild a classic. Who cares, camp in what you like. when your in a tear your buying into a lifestyle
