Shell strength and interior finish are definite pluses. Other factors I consider pluses are no plugs through fiberglass to lead to future leaks
. Galvinized and/or Stainless fittings, frame, & fixtures to eliminate rust, disc brakes
, and a solid screen door. Other positive factors include items such as air conditioner, refrigerator
, etc. standard items easily accessible from almost any appliance store which can be easily and cheaply replaced.
I love the open design that is not claustrophobic with a full time bed and a regular queen size mattress. I also like the front of the trailer design that eliminates much wind buffeting when towing.
The only negatives from my viewpoint are they are prohibited by their insurance carrier to provide propane
appliances. They will, however, construct in such a manner to allow you to easily do your own retrofit when you get it home. I would also prefer electric brakes
rather than surge brakes
. They do, however, have what is probably as good as you can get surge system with discs rather than drums and an electric lockout when your vehicle is in reverse to allow back-up without unwanted braking.
As I said in my thread, "I think they have taken fiberglass trailer construction to a new level", and as this point I could hardly be more pleased.
