An eagle's nest is called an eyrie. This might be a good name for a trailer from a company using the name nest, but then again you might want to save it for your extra large super deluxe version later(??) Just thinking with my keyboard here...

Spelling has gotten so bad these days thanks to spell-check and auto-correct I'm afraid half the world would think it was haunted!

It can also be spelled aerie. I think that has a better feel.

Also spelled ayrie, but I think aerie is the most common. The one I use anyway.

We are drilling down into the fine details of assembly, including wiring and plumbing. This 20-gallon fresh water storage tank from Trionic is marine quality, and features wall construction nearly 3/8" thick! Very robust. Custom fittings (including that for PEX) and "deck plate" access for inspection and cleanings as needed in the future.

Our proprietary steel undercarriage components — towing deltas and axle brackets — returned from powder-coating looking great. Both bolt directly through the reinforced lower shell body. The torsion axle bolts through the axle brackets.

BTW, as you may know, the torsion axle tube is not powder-coated because the inner rubber cannot withstand the heat required for PC curing. Nevertheless, we still made the axle tube look pretty — primed and painted to match.

Having the ability to stick a fist, hand or arm down into a freshwater tank to clean it is GREAT!

Smile A possible headlight solution

When I had my 1991 Plymouth Laser with the pop-up headlights, I was worried about stone damage. What I did was cut two clear 2 liter pop bottles and they fit nicely over the headlights. I just used the center cylindrical section of the bottles.

Oops. I was answering Post 300 and didn't notice how the thread had progressed from there. My bad.

Regarding names, if Lil Snoozy can sell trailers then names surely don't matter.

I second that emotion. I own and love my LIL Snoozy. Our little trailers shouldn't taken to seriously 😁
