I believe that I see a fan venting from inside the washroom into the main cabin.

Personally, I would vent to the exterior. I'd rather have NO vent in the washroom at all than have it vent into the cabin.

Interesting link. Too bad the interior design still doesn't match our 'dream' trailer! I too would prefer a porta potti and more storage space. I have no use for the stovetop and sink - but would like a bed that we can both get in and out of easily.
The door would look better if it was recessed into the trailer instead of sticking our like a sore thumb.
I'm waiting to see the 'real' webpage with more information.

Its curious that nothing comes up in an online search about these trailers. I tried to do a reverse lookup on his phone number, but there is nothing there too. I just posted a message to the owner of the original kijiji listing, inviting him to join us. Maybe he will give us more info. If he gets a few email requests for more information, maybe he will shed some light on this mysterious kijiji listing.

I sent him an email when Donna first posted about stepping in and talking about his product if he desires. I have not heard back yet.

Multiple emails make us harder to ignore. Perhaps he will join us.

Looks like a great floorplan to me. Actually acknowledges that it's for Two peeps and not an entire family. As long as we are making suggestions though, I once saw a custom ordered BigFoot that had a fixed bed with huge outside doors in the back to access the under bed storage, a great idea.

Hat's off to free enterprise etc. It's a tough market to break into given the long term players and their well established production lines. Good luck to him.

Some valid questions have already been raised about a few design features. It'll be nice if there's some clarification.

One thing I noticed was the RV screen door unit. We had one of those on the RV we "cruised out of Arizona". I found the two doors were interacting with each other, not necessarily in a good way. Made me appreciate how well the Scamp folding screen door works.

The back one in the shop has a bellyband but the front one looks like it has been removed, there is no outer lip. I do wonder if maybe he found a few of them and does remods or custom orders.

Steve, it might be that the trim is decorative, to hide any imperfections the seam may show, as Escape does after glassing the two halves together.

New Start-Up in B.C.

I emailed the person who posted the ad about this new trailer. I heard from him a little while ago. Here is what he said (I asked a few questions about specs as well as paperwork for importing to the U.S.):
"Hello Linda,
I am the manufacturer of this trailer. This one listed is the prototype. I presently have 4 more in stock. The inside height is 6’, and the bed is just about a double. The prototype is 1630 lbs, and the other 4 are just over 1500 lbs. The outside height from road to top is 7’ 4”. And the width is approximately 6’4”. I’m sorry but I don’t know any of the paperwork required to import to the US.

Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions.
Daryll"

I will give him the link to this forum so he can hopefully communicate with folks here and give us more info.

Linda, I had already sent him an invite to the forum, and a link to this thread when Donna first posted. I imagine he has already been around.
