This was sighted at Okemos MI. Of course, one can notice that it is used by a AT&T company. I wonder IF there is anyone out there that knows something of the manufacturer?

Look carefully at the trailer in the background of the photo in the upper left corner of:

http://www.purrformancetrailers.com/homepage.html

and that might be it.

When I was touring the Maritimes a couple of years back, I noticed a lot of truck work-bodies made of fiberglass on utility company vehicles.

Sunday, June 15 at the Tulare rest area off hiway 99 in LOVELY central California..

4 [b]Little Joe's!.. Yes.. 4 of them!

Of course, they cheated, they were on a transport truck, and they weren't really campers. AT&T is buying custom ones for field service tool houses. These ones all had AT&T logos on them, so I suspect they were headed for a life of toil.

Yes, they are little Joes made for AT&T.

I have seen several of them in so.cal. Wiescraft is probably doing very good business with them.

Hi, I stumbled on your website doing research on another trailer of ours and found this thread. The trailer in the photo is an ATT fiberoptic splicing trailer made by our company. If you see one out there check out the vin and you will see it is made by the Pelsue Company here in Englewood Colorado. We manufacture these for ATT and other telecom companies such as Verizon and Qwest. We mold the bodies in Lamar Colorado and also have an assembly plant there as well. In addition to the trailer in the photo which is our Fiberlite POD we have an 11' foot long bodied trailer that is 6" wider and 6" taller that has a side door as well. This is a new trailer, the FiberliteXL will be available this summer.

Currently we manufacture these for construction and utility company use but have been asked if we would consider making them available for RV's or even produce an RV. That is something we are considering now and doing some research to help finalize a decision. In fact, that is how I found your great website.

Several years ago the first trailers we prototyped the idea to the phone companies with was a Weiscraft trailer. That trailer, while very good was too small for our needs. We then built our own set of 4 molds to our spec which resulted in a larger unit that had greater reinforcement and greater glass thickness for everyday duty consisting of off-road use behind construction trucks. Our trailer rides on an all aluminum frame and has a place for up to a 7KW genset out front. It can be fueled by either (2) 40 lb LPG bottles or an underbelly 20gallon, gasoline or diesel fuel tank.

I know Marty and Weisecraft and they are very fine people who make a great fiberglass camper with the Li'l Joe. They too are here in Colorado.

I hope this answers your question even though I was almost a year late in answering.

Robin, look at their website, they make the Ponderosa which is an upgraded Little Joe with potty and shower and smaller bed.

Bobbie, I don't need another Egg now, but sure would have given me more options when I was searching for one. Now days for people searching its not such a desperate search, cause there seems to be more for sales but for those who are looking for a little version of an egg. They would be a great option. Robin

Yeah, I like the Ponderosa, although I'd like it better with a pop-top, except that it would lose all the overhead storage. But it is a sweet little self-contained unit with everything one could want (except space.)

I wonder if Pelsue would sell a shell? Any guesses as to how much one would cost?
