I notice that one of the images from the 2005 September event shows a Scamp 16' carrying the name "Sisters On The Fly". While this group is not focussed on fiberglass, it has been mentioned in this forum before. They are apparently primarily interested in older, but still small, travel trailers; a typical example is the photo after the Scamp, with a cowgirl and "Yee Haw" on the side. By coincidence, the current (2006 March) issue of Trailer Life magazine features Sisters On The Fly on the cover and in an article.

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

Several Sisters pull fiberglass. I'm not sure how many, maybe 5-6. I had a falling out with the owner of the club so I'm not up to date on the numbers but there are over 430 Sisters now. Most pull trailer, there are a few motorhomes, truck and trailer combos, and some use tents or sleep in the back of their trucks.

I see a 13' 1974 Compact Junior in the for sale section for $8K.
They claim 660 pounds fully loaded, too.

It must be that the "lightweight cedar" interior is lighter than air, and lifts the trailer up.

The other for sale ad is a KenRoy teardrop, with a 3500 lb axle: the teardrop is the heavyweight of the set... you don't see that every day!

The majority of teardrops are built by people who've never built anything in their entire lifetime and know very little about what they are doing. On the Teardrop and Tiny Travel Trailer site, we try to explain it isn't necessary to overbuild frames and axels, but people tend to do it anyway.
