A backwards Tab! With corners!

Yes, it is VERY small!

Good find, Rob - thanks!

That really does look - in layout and shape - like a front-kitchen Tab in reverse. The weight distribution must be interesting, with that axle placement and the kitchen in back. I do appreciate the scale layout drawing, complete with dimensions!

And wow, look at that front window! Must be no rocks on the road in China...

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

In the South African caravans, I notice a strong trend to pop-top designs, like the Compact. That may be the bias of the person posting them, but may also reflect a need for lower air drag with smaller tow vehicles. Interesting, anyway... again, thanks Rob.

Yes, my Boler has a guard over the front window, just like the Little Bigfoot in the photo. Since my windows are made of glass, I think this is a good idea. I suppose that with plastic windows it might not be as much of a problem.

But it's not just the risk of rock damage - that is one enormous window!

Don't forget the other Japanese fiberglass trailer, the T. Globe. It is only sold in Japan, though you can buy a very similar trailer in Rice, Texas.

The T Globe is made by Casita in Rice, TX. It is different from the US Casita in a few respects that are referenced in Tom's link.

I notice that the Casita for Japan has the axle much much closer to the centre (like a Euro design) than the Casita for North America. The more central placement means lower tongue load. Not surprising, but interesting...
