Galileo Campers

I'm new here and would like to see info on the Galileo fiberglass camper. Anyone have info? Their website seems to be down.

According to this site the builder was JAG Mobile Solutions
Galileo Travel Trailers €” Small RV Life


and their website is still up, but there is no mention of Galileo
JAG Mobile Solutions | Mobile Restroom Trailers, Portable Shower Trailers, Specialty Trailers


Me thinks that the idea for a "High End" luxury trailer didn't gel, but there must be at least one out there somewhere. I'd contact JAG, and let us all know what you find out.

I just called. They stopped making them in 2011. Too bad.

Was there any indication of how many were built? They certainly look interesting
But... If a high end FGRV is what you are looking for, be sure to follow the thread on the build out of the NEST Caravan on this site, it may be exactly what you want.

Built by whoever Aereon is I guess. I didn't realize that it was hybrid construction (sticky with molded fiberglass ends caps and roof) in the Galileo pics. But if they are selling a 21', 2011 for $10k at a Camping World lot that's certainly not in the same class as our FGRV's. You can't buy a decent 2011 13' for that kind of money, at least not at Camping World..... lol
Thanks for the peek though.

From what I can see, AEREON was made by AVS that became Galileo. So these are only molded end caps and roof? Not a true FG?

In the script for the video it mentions a "Molded roof" and the flat sides appear to be standard sheet construction. Plus, the selling price is the give-away, CW knows what Molded FGRV's can bring, even if an orphan.

Only a handful were made. The facility in Howe, IN, has three "new" 2010 and one "new" 2011 21' models available. Interesting. Thanks for the info. I'm leaning toward Bigfoot. I can't seem to get anywhere with Nest Caravans.

Needless to say, NEST is a bit away from production, but we know the builder well here and the promise is substantial. Did you see the thread that shows all of his development pics?


But certainly BigFoot is also an excellent choice, new ones are pricy but well thought of, and there are a few dealers in the states. I did a restoration on a 13' Lil'Bigfoot about 2 years back and have some pics if you would like to see a small Bigfoot, albeit no longer in production.




What will you be towing with? FGRV's are lighter than stick construction, but not featherweight as some stickys "claim" to be
