There is a dealer with a bunch of these tts. I stopped by to look. They use torx fasteners along the edges only. The sides are two sheets of aluminum the entire length of any side. Looks like a tongue and groove between the sheets. There is angled piece along the junction of any two walls covering the junction. Lots of torx along these pieces. No fasteners whatsoever out in the side sheeting unless there is a door, then torx are used.

I really like the livin light tt! Heavier than a fgrv but lighter than a stickie. I think they will have a lifespan similar to a fgrv.

Stckies can be lighter than aluminum and fiberglass trailers of the same size.

We had a stick built trailer identical to Frank's Sunline. It's volume was larger than our Scamp and it was 200 lbs lighter. I attribute the difference to the thin aluminum siding used.

Interestingly it was a true double walled trailer with insulation betweent the walls. The double wall constructon extended to the floor and ceiling.

I love the aluminum framework concept. I looked at the website and found some design flaws, at least in my mind's eye. Example, look at the awning for the QuickLite. Don't get me wrong as I do wish them luck. I imagine some design changes will come into play as more people give feedback. But man they sure are purtty!

I got to see them at the RV Show in Austin TX. I was very impressed. The frame and cabinets are all welded aluminum. They had one with the frame extending out about thee feet behind the camper for carrying things like generators, bikes etc. the 16' camper the 13QBB has a queen sized bed, 5 cubic foot refrigerator with freezer, and a dinette. It was a really great floor plan for a 16' camper. The front is round for aero dynamics. I guess the big surprise was the weight. Dry weight of 2350 pounds and a hitch weight of only 170 pounds. The tanks were big too. 20 gallon fresh waster and 27 gallon gray water. The rep told me it was built to last several lifetimes. You can get it with all aluminum cabinets. The one I saw had the spray insulation under the floor and a carpet with snaps that can be taken out and cleaned. The price was only $18500.

The teaser on their home page? That doesn't look small at all - the configuration looks like the common fifth-wheel which towers over the full-sized pickup truck required to pull it. Do they have a smaller proposal?

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

I hope they continue to improve, as all products should, but the Camplite line isn't new... they must have had feedback for a while.

That's the nature of legends: they are often inspired by reality, but are usually far from the whole truth. I would no more expect an Airstream to live up the legend than I would expect to meet Robin Hood if I walked through Sherwood Forest.
