Thanks Bob. They were more clued in that I expected... but cost-wise, any of the U.S. brands would have been a better target than the relatively expensive and less popular Tundra.

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

Not sure this is molded FG in the truest sense, since it looks like there may be seams between the sides and the roof/rear. Although maybe it's 'decorative trim'?

alibaba dot com is a B2B site for manufacturers to sell their stuff to retailers, not the builder of this particular trailer.

When you click on a link you get the builder and, yes, you can talk to the pretty girl if you like.

Europe, Australia & NZ, as well as much of Asia, use 220 VAC as a standard voltage in RV's. These ads are aimed at that market, but a US dealer need only ask for a 120 VAC version.

There is a company in L.A. (Coda) trying to build and sell electric vehicle based on a Chinese body shell, but they are about BK at this point. Here's a link, they also have a website for the company...
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coda_Automotive

I doubt if a Chinese built RV would sell well here, but some of the features and details shown could give US builders some ideas if they ever take their heads out of their (You know where I mean!)

I got to thinking (?) about this and I believe that Ali Baba was sorta the good guy.

Yes you are right. What was I thinking of? The 40 thieves of course !!
I do recall a Magic Carpet I think. At my age I happy just to get up in the morning and have a cup of java. Open Sesame.
Thanks for the clarification - it was a valid one.

Holy Mackerel I read the Wikipedia version of the story. I dont remember old Walt Disney telling it that way. It would have been rated PG-13. V for violence.

The Icamp was/is? a Chinese RV introduced a few years back. Similar to a T@B. I have not seen one in person nor am I sure if they are still around.
