Bob your trailer is beautiful and looks like you have made many innovative additions. the Compacts are a great looking FGRV with a smart rear door design. Bring it by the lot if you need any help fixing something anytime. Would love to see it.

Ian, love the visual

Gilda, we haven't released all the information of photos on the trailer yet, just what i posted on here, whats being posted around is our first prototype, we are working on building the first batch of 10 HC1s now.

The Portable sink is a 20" x 20" x 20" cube that contains both a clean and gray water 5 gal tank, all the internal components and tanks are built custom out of roto-mold. It can sit on top of our bench cubes for counter top height. I felt most of our time in the little trailers is spent outside, so i wanted to make all the components be used inside and outside of the trailer, it also allows you to configure the interior of the trailer the way you like, some may want a sink in the classic Boler position, where others may want it on the back hatch like a tear drop for cooking outside. I like to take the sink out and put it on the picnic table bench for the perfect height. The stove top is just a standard butane stove top, but we chose a great looking one from Iwantani
We will not have a "fridge" but will use a thermoelectric cooler that fits perfectly into a modular cube. We are also building our own custom icebox that is a modular cube and can also be used as a bench seat and make up the interior of the trailer, so no space is wasted. Porta potie is also a standard Dometic porta-potie that fits perfectly into our modular cubes. The HC1 is designed to be customized any way you like, and can be upgraded at any time. We plan to always be working on upgrades and new modual components you can use in the future. Today i'm working on the closet component hopefully ready soon. Let me know if there are any questions or critiques! feedback is good!

Your butane stove looks great, but how am I supposed to put the stock pot on that burner for boiling corn on the cob?

Hey Glenn, the burner is plenty big enough for a stockpot, its got a great design to it and the burner is quite large and robust. Again, i will never be able to please everyone as we all have different uses for the little trailers. Your welcome to put the stovetop you feel best in the HC1, this is just the one im suggestion as i like the quality, design and use of it, i have tested out quite a few. That said. I really would love a nice hot piece of buttered corn right now, thanks for making me hungry.. is it lunch yet?

Derek, the HC1 is a fantastic design. Let your work defend itself.
The concept, the craftsmanship all look superb. Everyone has a classic design that they favour but there will always be room for new and original ideas. Not everyone wants to restore a vintage trailer!
Keep posting your work and keep us informed, I thoroughly enjoy reading about your innovative trailer.
