I had an interesting evening. I stopped at a small RV and camping/outdoors show on my way home from work today. There, I had a lengthy conversation with the only sales rep for Little Joe Trailers
He was very nice and happy to answer all my questions even tho he knew that I personally was not in the market for them.
OK, here is the answer to the burning question for those that are interested.
YES, these are made from the original litehouse molds. The owner managed to aquire them (I did not ask how) and moved them to Henderson Colorado. His shop is right behind 5 star RV, thats why they are currently the only web advertisers. This will change shortly.
They are selling these thru a small dealer network now. Obviously, they hope to get a bigger one, but for now, they are available at several dealers on the west coast. He said he was nation wide, but I only remember the west coast dealers. There are 2 in the NW, one in Medford, Or. one in Vancouver, Wa.
They currently do not have plans to make a larger one, but they do have a new model that has a toilet and shower. It basically shortens the seating area, pushes the kitchen to the center and the shower is a fold down arrangement. He had no pictures.
He DID have many pictures of the factory and various one off models, including a pretty metallic blue one. The floors in all of these now are diamond plate, and they are keeping with the "elegant" concept that the litehouse had..small trailer, fine fit and finish.
The new trailers have different graphics as well, getting rid of the western theme. They are more whispy ribbon things.
He is also the US rep for the 14 foot iCamp
Chinese made Fiberglass trailer, tho it isn't molded glass. All the parts, outside and in, are fiberglass.. cabinets, doors, everything inside is fiberglass except the appliances.
These come with only one floor plan, and only 2 colors
They will have a dealer network with demo models, but purchase is by order and delivery is 49 days.. from China.
Unfortunately, he is at this show with no product! His delivery truck broke down in the desert and was not able to move these items in. However, they are on ther way to Banning RV and both the Little Joe
and the iCamp will be there on Saturday. He was more than happy to allow me to go out and look and take pictures of both (Hey, free advertising LOL!) so..
Saturday, I will do just that. I am actually more excited to see the iCamp, as I may actually want one. At a 15k base price, I am not sure if i want the payments tho
