Thumbs up Eriba Puck lovers, take a look at this one!

Hi all,
I discovered a place called "Little Guy Trailers" in San Diego today. Scott and Eric were very knowledgeable and there's no hard sell. They carry a variety of different lightweight towables, such as T@B teardrops, Aliners, Cricket trailers, etc.

What caught my eye though, was a 900 lb. metal/fiberglass trailer patterned after the German-made Eriba Puck. The "Meerkat" is made in San Diego and is really sweet! Check out the websites below. They can be shipped or picked up, of course.

littleguytrailers.com/meerkat

or

At only 900 pounds, almost any 4 cylinder could tow it.

Met Scott at a Vintage Trailer Rally/Gathering. Nice guy. The trailer is not a Eriba Puck but a nice copy. It's also smaller than a 13' Burro.

I believe the body is insulated aluminum and both the top and pop-top are fiberglass.
Sticker prices on the models were rangeing from 12,900 - 14, something. I would think there's room for negotiation there.

I am a teardrop owner and we just love ours. Last summer we spent 5 weeks camping in State and National Parks. It's a TC Teardrop make in Wausau WI. It weighs 900 lbs. and I thought I'd tow it with a Prius, however they have no tow rating and if there is warranty on the Prius, towing with it would void that warranty.

Your welcome, Cathy.
I thought a cute, 900 pound trailer such as the Meerkat would be a good choice for those with limited towing capabilities.

Small Galley with a big bed. Similar to a Little Joe camper but with a side entry. I'd like it better if it were all fiberglass but if it were, would it still weigh 900 lbs?? Thanks for sharing, Raz
