Any one heard of a trifab trailer

Back in September at the algonac meet I met a guy who was camping in the wagon wheel area far away from the group . He was in what I thought at first glance to be a13 ft boler. Naturally I wanted to talk to him about his trailer so I knocked on his door no answer.ilooked over his trailer and started to notice some strange differences to the boler . After afew minutes a guy came over from another site and said it was his trailer . I asked him what make his trailer was and he told me it was a trifab. I've never heard of that trailer before.he told me they made less than 200 trailers before a fire destroyed their opperation and some trailers and put them out of business . Some of the strange differences are a flat front window , with the Fiberglas built up to accommodate it ,and the most oddest thing they did ( il try to explain this the best I can with out pictures) on a boler they inset the rear taillight and rivet it in . On the tri fab they took the same molded taillight assembly and reversed it so that it sticks out It looks like they bought or got the boler molds and changed them . I asked the guy if he might be interested in selling it and he said he might as it needs quite a bit of restoration so I left him my number . Last nite I got a call and negotiated a price . I'll be picking it up on the weekend. Hope to have pictures next week
