This turned up on the Teardrops forum and I thought some folks here might like to see this. It doesn't say if the skin is fiberglass, but I'm guessing for low volumes it will be.

Andrew,

Neat find!

Although he doesn't specifically say what it's made of, I'm thinking after poking around the site that it is plastic, not fiberglass (I know fiberglass is technically a type of plastic, but you know what I mean).

Here's why I say that:

1) He mentions in a few places that it is "plastic" "foam filled plastic" etc.

2) In another section, he talks about his design goals, and how they could have been met by utilizing "either plastic or fiberglass."

This leads me to believe that when he says "plastic" he is not talking about fiberglass.

I think it's a super-cool idea - would love to see one!

Raya

Very similar to the Compact Jr. in design. The under 1000 Lb tow rating is an under-served market.
I don't know how many folks would go to the trouble of disassembling it for storage and reassembling it for use.
Although, pairing it with the fold-up utility trailer sold by Harbor Freight might solve storage problems for condo dwellers...
