Now, if we can just get them to put the door on the correct side we would all be better off!! Looks like the frame is a single "I" down the middle.

Looks nice! I've thought for quite a while that a "hybrid" style addition for our little fiberglass trailers would make sense for some of us who need additional sleeping room; but the "pop-up" top is also interesting.

Also interesting, they use the metric system for weights and most lengths, but the tires, brakes, and "main beam" are measured in inches.

It's like a Lil Snoozy and a Compact had a baby.

Second picture down looks like a v. Look at the shadow. The design is a little too unorthodox for me although the interior is pretty nice looking. Raz

Frames with a single backbone to the axle crossmember are called "T chassis" by European manufacturers. They also build V chassis.

This one may be a vee; from a review by CamperTrailerAustralia:
Quote:
The chassis on the review unit is somewhat unnecessarily strong given the weight involved - it's made up of two main rails, each 150x50x3mm Duragal box section. However, there are plans to build a lighter chassis, thus shaving perhaps 150-200kg off the overall weight.
That's 6"x2"x1/8" (height x width x wall) tubing, which does not match the current description; perhaps they did the planned change.

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

Nominal wheel/tire sizes for most vehicle types are in inches worldwide.

From the same article:
Quote:
Suspension is independent trailing arm with the choice of coils or airbags, and the alloy wheels come in a choice of six-stud Nissan or five-stud LandCruiser pattern, furnished by 10in electric drum type.
The brakes are probably American; Australian towing practices seem to be an interesting mix of European and North American styles.

Northern Lite used to make a trailer just like you're describing

Perhaps as cars are pushed to get better fuel mileage, and tow capacity's are getting lowered a leaner shorter lighter weight trailer might have a market.

Before huracaine sandy I was debateing about building The Squidget Tiny Travel Trailer Plans but was going to make almost the whole roof a poptop. I figured it would be much more aerodynamic then my little gypsy vardo I built and would allow standing headroom.
