Thanks
Laura, the ProLite is a popular Canadian trailer that has been built out of Quebec for the past 14 years or so. Its not a molded fiberglass trailer though - the trailers body is built of plywood which they cover on the outside with thin fiberglass panels.

Yup, you are correct, I was misreading. Brackets are clearly beyond me.

Laura - we looked at a Prolite and decided not to buy. It seemed flimsy and once the joins started to wiggle about it would allow water in to the wooden framework. For less money we got a used Trillium that is sturdy and doesn't leak.

Everyone has different ideas about what they really want when it comes to a trailer or car. All you can do really is decide on how much cash you are prepared to spend, look at brands, layouts etc and choose the one that comes closest to ideal.

There is also Molded plastic . On a side note, pretty impressive facility they now have. Last I looked they needed funding or an investor.

Ken, There's been some past threads about these modular plastic sections that get put together to make a trailer. I guess they finally got into production under the name of Tail Feather. I would be very interested to see how this works. Has anybody seen one of these things? What I'm curious most about is how they do all these seams without leaks.

Yeah, we've chatted with the business owner in the archives here. He has come an impressive long way from starting up in his backyard. If he his still subscribed to those threads you can talk with him directly maybe. Other good stuff on their facebook if interested.

I thought the tailfeathers were interesting... if it was a hard sided poptop roof and had the woden furniture inserts like back in 2011...I might have considered it...but the leaking was a fear.
