We have a Casita 16' and though we will still be using it for Matagorda, it's just too darn small! We used to be popup people, but moved up to a casita for the ease. Now we need more bed room. Pity, because we really took care of it! So that's why we think we want an aerolite cub. We want the smallest with 2 beds (expandable). If you have any thoughts on this or any other model that may suit our needs, please let us know...

No WE'RE sorry, but do understand life circumstances change. Since you know our focus on this forum is molded lightweight fiberglass pullables, you may have more success checking at the forums on RV.net here: Open Road Forums

Let us know when you're ready to sell, buyers are lining up.

I thought an Aerolite Cub (Rockwood Roo, Starcraft Travel Star) WAS a molded lightweight fiberglass pullabe. It's only 16-17' and is fiberglass. No?

No, not really.

We owned a 19 foot Aerolite before getting our Casita. We thought that it was fiberglass but when we tried to patch it like fiberglass discovered that it wasn't quite true. Also the walls are still stick built with the panels attached unlike our fiberglass trailers that are one piece.

Our aerolite after about 40,000 miles was over two inches longer just by the vibration shaking the staples enough to cause the walls to separate a little at each joint. Don't get me wrong, we loved our trailer and used it a lot. We just wanted something that was also fiberglass on the floor and roof and wouldn't get dry rot.

We even looked at a cub but as we travel a lot and sometimes stop in rest areas or Wally's we want to not have an easy access to our inside. They allowed us to test a trailer and in one rest area we woke to an arm coming up through the canvas. After beating arm and screaming loudly the person ran off and we took the trailer back and said, give us a hard sided trailer.

Also be aware that the bed panels do not have locks on them only quick releases so if you stop at a store, anyone can drop down the panels and have access to your trailer.

The difference is that the fiberglass' on these webs are all form molded fiberglass and the trailers your talking about are stick built with wood frames, paneled on the inside with wood paneling and paneled on the outside with fiberglass sheets
