I especially like that it comes with a Bouble Bed and a floor!

Not to mention the "huge space and perfect furniture" and "toilet with bathroom". All kidding aside though it looks like a nice setup.

Looks can be deceiving! After all it is a "New Procuct" and since they are an "Independent Enterprice" I would be a little concerned about any warranty work if needed. And doesn't that beach scene look like it is painted on the back window, or is that just my imagination?

Maybe I watched too many Elvis Presley movies growing up. They all look painted on to me. Unless of course I am there LOL!

Hmmm, and the floorplan doesn't look like the trailer does in the pictures.

The bed looks roomier than the double in our 23' Airstream.

Also remember the tale of Alibaba and the 40 thieves. Maybe they could have chosen a better moniker.

Is that a ceramic pedestal sink? Why would anyone put that in a lightweight travel trailer? Maybe it's a good imitation in plastic...

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

My Scamp has a ceramic toilet.

So does my motorhome, and I think that's reasonable for even a light trailer, but ceramic has an advantage for cleaning in a toilet bowl that does not seem to me to be such an advantage for a sink. I have to wonder if the designers of this trailer are familiar with RVs...

Scroll down and look at some of the other offerings and then click on "more" to the right. There are some very unique ideas shown.

I was contacted about 4 years ago by a Chinese vendor to see if there was any interest in importing a molded fiberglass camper body that would replace the entire bed on Toyota trucks. They claimed that the changeovwer could be done in 4 hours. I suspect that their product proved to heavy for the stock chassis and they never came into the U.S. market.

Most of these look like they are aimed at the Aussie/Kiwi marketplace where caravans and campers are a lot more expensive than in the U.S.

I like Toyotas, but a compact truck just doesn't make sense for a ton of big box. Even suggesting this now, after years of perfectly good but small Toyota trucks being overloaded by oversize motorhome/camper bodies, suggests someone who has not done their research into this market. They could have meant the Tundra, of course, but that's a North America only product, so I doubt it.

The Chinese mfg was aware of the problems with pre-1986 Toyota Motorhomes (Most 1987's and later were on an original true 1 ton truck chassis and were marginally OK.) .

They were wanting to know if there was a market for mounting campers on the Tundra and the Dyna chassis, with special interest in the Dyna as they knew it was popular for conversions in Australia and New Zeland. I told them that the Dyna wasn't imported to the U.S.

toyota dyna truck japan - Google Search

Apparently they had a Tundra there and claimed that they has mounted a prototype on the chassis..They contacted me because I had a business going restoring molded fiberglass Toyota Sunrader motorhomes.

I haven't seen or heard of anything from them since those 2 contacts.
