aalite trailers/ motor homes

so im not seeing a whole lot of info on these aalite dodge chassis, trailor or otherwise. i find it interesting that as hard as it is to find info on the company or product, no one has yet to compile a complete history on them. maybe someone on here knows something i don't??

my 69' is coming along nicely , replaced the starter and she fired right up after siting for at least three years to my knowledge. brakes were a real bear on the full floater and i'm still having problems at the power booster, of which i had yet to see the likes of.

anyhow let us come together as aalite owners and get the word out or dig it up, tired of the travcos and bolers geting all the attentions lol

Well Adam, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it's doubtful you'll get the support for your project here on FiberglassRV. This forum is dedicated to all-molded-towable trailers. Besides "we don't speak Motorhome"


You may find the support you seek and the assistance you want at: http://www.irv2.com and the Open Road Forums at RV.net


Adam, I checked your post from 2014. I still think you'd have more luck posting where (at least) motorhomes owners hang out.


Best of luck, truly

although the aalite is not a tow-able trailer your statement couldn't be further from the truth. just by looking at the two different builds you can see they are identical in manufacture. the only difference may be the dual axles at rear and lack of engine in the trailer. the shell is still a molded Fiberglas "egg" with a wooden flange or seam.

what about manufacturer info on the trailers anyway? there is still no info on them here. and as far as "motor home speak" goes, really whats the difference if the truck your hauling it with is separate or molded to it?

i hope that i do not sound aggressive or offensive, i just don't see the purpose of this fine line you have drawn between these two products made by the same shell builder.

please note that aalite is in fact included in the list of trailer manufactures on this site

Actually, Adam, it's not a fine line. This site is about "Molded Lightweight Fiberglass Travel Trailers," and as such, the majority of the folks here know about trailers, not motorhomes. AALite made both, so AAlite is in our list of manufacturers. Some folks here may find your project interesting, but we're not the best group to offer you advice on the power train, etc. (We can help with fiberglass issues, resetting windows, vents, etc. and all the other things that your motorhome has in common with the trailers.) Donna was just trying to point you in a more productive direction - and maybe let you know why Bolers are getting "all" of the attention. (Not sure about TraveCo.)

From our home page: your Molded Lightweight Fiberglass Travel Trailer RV website! ... intended as a free resource for those who are looking for, or who own, molded fiberglass travel trailers. Various topics include maintenance and repair, towing, modifications, and almost anything else related to molded fiberglass travel trailers ...

I am interested in seeing some pics of your project. Why not start an online photo album on here. That way everyone can see that the camper portion is Fiberglass and we all some common ground.
