I visited the Pelsue assembly facility south of Lamar last summer when I was working on a project nearby. Was just driving by and suddenly saw a lot of fiberglass hulls sitting beside a building. Since I had observed a set of fiberglass molds in a facility behind the motel where I was staying I was on high alert for fresh fiberglass.

The first thing I noticed about them was the frame. It is a very solidly built aluminum unit that is obviously made for a rough life in the field as a work trailer. They were equipped with a pintle eye instead of an RV coupler and had really robust stabilizers instead of the rather wimpy stabilizers associated with RVs. I wasn't able to get any specifics but would guess that the weight is considerably higher than an RV type frame even though it was aluminum. The fiberglass also seemed to be a lot thicker than what I've seen on RV bodies. For a boondock ready or safari unit this would be ideal. It also looked like it would be possible to mount the fiberglass hull on a small pickup to make an all fiberglass mini moho.

The guys working there weren't very forthcoming with information about the units but allowed me to look them over and climb inside. I got the impression they were just doing the assembly and weren't familiar with anything other than their particular part of the job. They couldn't tell me if there was any way I could buy one and especially if I could buy just a body or a hollow body and frame. They seemed to think the only customers were utility companies and that they were individually configured to the customer's specifications. They did, however, give me the company name and contact information.

At the time I had recently purchased an EggCamper kit so I didn't pursue the idea of buying a unit from them. Just wish I had known about them as a possible option when I was shopping for a camper.
