New FG Manufacturer?

Sorry if this is a repeat. I'm just figuring this iPod out and am having trouble doing the usual stuff. Hope the link works.

Oh wow, that is lovely! I've never seen information about or photos of these before. I love all the overhead cabinetry.

Cool! I think it's good for all of us when new manufacturing comes on line. Casita and Scamp had better watch out.

It looks like no rivets either. Wish there were more pix of the front and the bathroom. Anybody nearby willing to take a drive and investigate?

Wow, where did these come from? They look and sound nice. 15' long overall. Priced maybe a tad lower than 16' Scamp, it appears at first glance. The only thing I'm not sure about is that spot over the entry door... looks like it goes in and makes a gapped area directly over the door... a leak waiting to happen?

It looks like he is going with the cassette toilet, too, since he specifies a 5 gallon black tank.

No mention on the site of insulation, wall covering, or if he is using through-the-hull rivets.

But the extra storage space and various sleeping space potential (due to the lack of a divider) is nice.

Thats sharp.....Only thing I'd want is a bigger front window...that peephole they have is too small...looks roomy for sure...not sure why they sunk the roof either other than to hide the vent from side view.. I still like it alot.

Nicely built "Egg" if i lived near Gibsonville, NC I would have to check them out..... I couldn't spot any rivets on the outside either.
It has a nice 3500lb axle but the 13" tires should be upgraded to at least 14"

Hi: All...Isn't it wonderfull to witness the renaissance of the fiberglass travel trailer. I do find it odd tho, to watch, as new co's. spring up knowing that in the past they have come and gone. Some in as short as 1yr.
Is this the result of fuel prices? Does it mean that history does indeed repeat itself???

Maybe with more competition the prices will come down some.
