More of a gear trailer than a mobile grooming station. Alot of groomers do the grooming in the clients home, basement or garage, but this can enable someone to use a compact car and isolate the gear and chemicals from their daily vehicle and provide a safe storage unit ready for the next grooming.

Very familiar with them and our appeal is price-point as compared to the MyPod model they have the STARTS @ $6,875.00.

We will shatter that price for the consumer looking for a small, lightweight "no frills" sleeper trailer.

Aren't there federal safety standards that must be complied with when manufacturing and selling a vehicle designed to occupy/sleep in.

Moderator's note: moved to General Chat (from Marketplace section) where this thread should get more exposure. (Nothing for sale yet, as this seems to be an idea gathering thread.) Carry on...

Thanks Mary.... and this is a idea thread. We will be marketing our trailers for several different uses. One of the uses will be a small utility/sleeper trailer.

Many of our customers will probably use their Runt for many different events and uses while camping might be one.

No.

And at the risk of answering wrongly to what seems to me to be a mixed-negative post, I'll rephrase to say:

There are no Federal Standards governing a "vehicle designed to occupy/sleep in".

You might want to visit the Teardrops & Tiny Travel Trailers forum as those folks are already interested in trailers of this size and so may be a ready market.

Great idea! Not everyone wants or needs the same things. And, aren't we glad? Rich, wishing you much success in your endeavor!
