Monopod-British Super Egg

Perhaps this has been posted about already but couldn't find it in a search. This is pretty cool and reminiscent of an Oxygen. It appears to be fiberglass laminate-or just fiberglass. It got a bit to techie for me to know in the specs. Lower left of the first page.
IH Monopod

monocoque!- Understood that bit

Those big front windows are visually impressive, but think of all the bug splats and dirt it would accumulate in a day's driving.

The door sags.

Like mike said about the windows, and as well, rocks could get expensive.

ooooh, I like it! And it's really not all that big... well compared to a couple of all molded trailers we're used to seeing:
21' 5" outside
20' 8" inside
Headroom 6'7" to 6'1"

Read the rest on the website... check out the bed sizes!

Impressive. Lots to like about it.

Though, I do wonder what those handles on the rear of the unit are for.

That's the body length, but in eggs (and in no other type of trailer, by the way), we use overall coupler-to-bumper length. They label that "shipping length", and it's 25 feet... or the size of the largest recent production egg, the Bigfoot 25B25 series.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

those front windows are beautiful....and yes, they'd "dirty up" quickly...but they do give a fantastic view!
i'm thinking this trailer would be waaaaay beyond my price-point, though. perhaps it's a very good thing it's across the pond. temptation be gone!
