That design is so cool, though I would like to see more pictures. Do you have either of the models on the road?

On the road

No, only one is on a frame but non of the shells are completed. Once they get to Seattle they will get completed. I plan on posting pics of the process. Please share the go fund so we can get the word out. Everyone who donates get placed in a drawing for a custom trailer!

Business plan

Yes I have a business plan, I can modify it for posting here however I am leaving Monday to go supervise the shipping. I won't have time to do that until I get back. I have a business plan, manufacturer, equipment, shipping, warehouse space, buyers, sellers (including one of the largest nw dealers) interested in selling them. I am really excited about these trailers and so are many others in the field.
I hope everyone will spread the word and support them :-)
Every dollar donated is a chance to win one when they go into production

Sorry, I'd like to see a lot more than a lottery for my dollar.

Just a thought

I don't know if this is an appropriate post but.... I was fortunate in my life and would sometimes give a gift to others who were struggling or attempting a new path without my consideration of the outcome. Sometimes a little kick is what separate success from failure. Many times a gift started some one on a new path, in part because someone unexpectedly cared.

A donation to this person's attempt should not be considered an investment, other then in her and her drive to create a business. It is a gift and like all gifts it is given without expectation of return. If asked by the recipient if I expect pay back, I always say no, except that may be they'll have the chance some day to do the same.

Those willing to strike out and start a business are rare. They deserve support. They can make a difference.

I will support this effort.

Many thanks

Thank you so very much for any donations. I know a lottery might not be worth it to some but right now that's all I can offer as a thank you for your generosity. I believe in paying it forward and have even when I had nothing to give. My family and I have been blessed with a lot and I try and help whoever whenever I can. My family and I believe in this venture and have gone "all in" with everything we have. Every donation to help get these beautiful vintage trailers on the road is beyond appreciated. Blessings to each and everyone of you! Thank you

The "Mystery Trailer Venture" is abut a group of unfinished FGRV's and their molds, apparently from the early 1970's, that were recently put on Craigslist and bought by Jayne above.


Here is a link to her gofundme page with some pics of the project:

Jayne, I will be very interested to follow your venture and wish you great success. I will offer a couple of (unsolicited) words of advice. One, please keep us (the FGRV members) informed of your progress, but be prepared for members to respond with the unvarnished truth as they see it. Some here (not me of course) can be pretty opinionated, but they also have a wealth of knowledge on the subject. The other point is to carefully consider your intended market segment and PRICE POINT. Bring to market a QUALITY product at a price that makes sense and you will do very well. Good luck!

Thank you, yes that is the plan. The manufacturer that will be fabricating the shells does exclusive work for NOAA with their tsunami warning systems (those things survive decades in the ocean) they have done work for Disney and I chose them because their quality and craftsmanship was phenomenal. I could have sent them to Iowa or Nebraska and had a big box company who produces semi truck shells but they would have been sub par. I'm hoping the price point is going to end up being at 25% less then the similar unit that's on the market. Similar as in small, light weight vintage inspired trailer.
After I get back I'm going to start working on a website and Facebook page so everyone can follow the progress. I am so excited for the awesome little trailers to get on the road! Thanks again!
