Trailer: Taylor Pradera
Posts: 4
Hello to all fiberglass RV owners!!!

First, i'm spanish, so, sorry for my poor and low level english!
I have one spanish fiberglass RV model named Taylor (older spanish fiberglas-ship builder) model Pradera. Taylor only built 400 units of RV Pradera, and few units of the prototype Horizonte, all in 1978. The Taylor Pradera owners have one public group in google, but we are only ten members.

I'm looking for more models of fiberglass RV in the world, and i was found fiberglassv.com, i'm very happy!!! I love the americans fiberglass RV models, but i love the Biod bambi (holland).

One of my dreams is go camping inside one Nascar track ( go #42! ) truck or sprint series...

Thanks!

Wow, that looks so much like a Trillium 1300 right down to light mounts. Here's a few other pictures I found of them

glad you joined us! Would love to see interior photo's of your cute trailer. Actually more photo's of the outside would be great too. Were you able to see all the varieties of fiberglass trailers on the homepage of fiberglassrv.com?


Well if you ever make it here for a Nascar campout, you will have to try and join a Rally where you would have an opportunity to see all kinds of different fiberglass trailers. Again, glad you joined us. Robin

Hi everyone!
I'm Pau, Samuel's friend from spain, the owner of the rv show'd above!
It's incredible how similar are the Taylor's from the Trillium rv too! Do anybody know if trillium did build boats too?
Maybe was a licenced design that Taylor bought from Trillium?

More pics of my Taylor:

Nice to meet you all!
Pau Valiente

Two different RVs?
Two different license plates-one with prefix "M", another with prefix "B".
Long ago that would have been, on cars at least, license prefixes for "Madrid" and "Barcelona".
All photos nicely done, thanks for sharing.
They brought back some very fond memories!

Hi Everyone, hi Pau!
"Maybe was a licenced design that Taylor bought from Trillium?"
it's possible, in early time ( 1978 )Ebro was a licenced of Jeep, and the Ebro Bravo in spain was the same Jeep wrangler in usa. I don't thing if you understand me... The same for RV...

John, nice find! :-D
In spain the smaller trailers (less than 750 kg of weight) have to show the licence plate of the car towing them, and as I had two cars I had to change the licence plate on the trailer. The bigger trailers have it's own licence number and they have to show both plates, their own and the towing vehicle plate. How is it in US?

Yes, the letters are from the province the car is buy'd, and yes, B from Barcelons (my home town) and M for Madrid where I'm actually living. ;-) Four or five years ago they changed the way the licence numbers where given, doing a national numbering to all of them, so now you can't say where the car is from by the license plate.
How do you know so much about spain's licensing letters?

Thanks for your kind words about the photographs! :-D
