Chandler,

Nice pics. Your table system looks very interesting. Makes the most out of the least. Your camper looks really nice. Hope you sell lots.

Thank you very much for posting the additional pictures, Chandler. I for one, like what I see. There is a front window in the exterior picture, where is it in the interior? What is the # 120v and 12v outlets and location, I see one by the side dinette. Where would a/c be located? Also, where is vent for the propane furnace, it is not shown on outside?

Just got off the phone with Chandler who was kind enough to answer some of my questions.
The picture first shown is one of the original trailers without the furnace nor hot water heater with the associated exterior vent covers your normally see. Both of these are on the curb side. The street side rear has batteries in a vented container and the fresh water tank- both behind the wheel well. This weight should lower the tongue weight as he specified. The a/c would be on street side, under the dinette seat.
There are 4x 120v outlets, 2 in kitchen area, one rear dinette, one side dinette. One exterior outlet. There is room for a small electric coffee maker to sit behind the sink.
There will be either a window or a vent in the bathroom or possibly both.
He seems eager to please and open to suggestions and will make the trailer as personal as he can. It is nice to be able to speak with the owner/builder of a product today, I have spoken with Jim Palmer of the EggCamper many times and was impressed with that ability and Chandler seems to be doing the same here. I look forward to watching this egg hatch here on the forum. Sorry Reace, I have not spoken with you yet!
Chandler also said that the belly band is where the top and bottom are attached via the bottom slipping inside the top 2-3" so that there is no chance of leakage as exists in other brands. Same set up is exhibited in the shower where the top slides over the bottom base.

Yep, of course you are right, CindyL. The problem is our Album software is no longer supported and we are moving things to the new Gallery software.

By the way, Chandler, that's a sweet looking trailer you've got there!

I saw in their website about a porta potti but i also saw a mention about a "black tank" (they still have a shower room) hopefully chandler will answer that question here.

I assumed the "black tank" is the one attached to the port-a-potty.

the website trailer specs say "5 gal blackwater tank (for toilet)"
the slide show photo did not look 5 gallons to me so i figured it's still in the prototype phase with something else on the way.

Many european trailers use Cassette Toilets, which are sort of a cross between a potty and a built in unit.

Others may feel differently but having a room with a shower and drain and a slide out of the way porta potti would be no problem for me..... my 9 gal right now i have makes me hook up to dump. 5 gal porta potti is just a walk to the dumpstation or the nearest toilet. Now boondocking is a whole nother story if no dump station is handy.

Liquid is 8.3# per gallon. I don't know what toilet paper and other things add to the weight of the 5 gallon porta potty.

Joe, you just defined the difference in why a cassette is fine with some people, and why other people need a larger tank.

DH & I are retired. It's very important to us to get a unit that we could camp off-grid for at least a week at a time in. DH and I must dump the cassette in our Aliner every 3 days. So there's no way we can do the serious boondocking that we long to be able to do.

I have about decided that if we don't end up with a Casita, we will have to have someone custom fabricate a black tank to fit which ever unit we end up with.

I think most of the small units are engineered strictly for campground camping or short off-grid weekends.
