Hi,

I found an add for a new fiberglass trailer in the latest Woodall's RV Buyers Guide. Just wondering if anyone has seen one. Does anyone know if they have dealer closer to the Mississippi River.

The Little Joe by Weis has come up here from time to time, but I don't believe that any of us have one yet. It is one of the smallest (that I'm aware of) that is currently being made.

A call would probably be in order to find out if they have one closer, but I'm guessing that it's sold close to (if not at) the point of manufacture.

Little Joe

At $3+ a gallon for gas, it's a good time to be launching an ultra light weight trailer.

Not me. I'm of the less is more crowd. I might have bought one of those instead of the 13' Scamp. That said, the 13' is every bit as much as I need. But I wouldn't mind a TV that could handle the 13' and get a whole lot better mileage.

Does that thing have a pop-top? I saw something on I-25 near Castle Rock last night that I didn't recognize. It was shaped sort of like a fiberglass horse trailer, with an oval shaped pop top. It was maybe half the size of my Burro and looked brand new. I couldn't see brand name, but it looked very, very cool (for one person, anyway).

That's a pretty fair description of an Eriba Puck. A German aluminum-bodied travel trailer, popular with the vintage VW crowd.

No, it is solid walled.

Did anyone find the price of the little joe? I see they have a roof rack for a boat (kayak?). Pretty cool.

Yes, the roof rack is a good addition. The more I look at that trailer, the more I can see what a great shelter it is for taking back into the really rough areas where a regular fiberglass rv cannot go.

Hi EJ,

I have checked out the Little Joe at a Denver RV show.
I was not impressed. Very crude rig.
Thought it looked like a molded fiberglass mini horse trailer with beds.
Looked like you could hose it out if you tracked in mud though.
A great deer hunting rig especially if you have drank too much and got sick.
I think you could do better.
Owning a Casita makes me bias. :-)

To answer your question about price. I sent off for information on the Little Joe a couple of months ago. The price list is $9,429.00 for the basic trailer. No furnace, air conditioner or refrigerator. I thought it was on the expensive side. You would have to go to Colorado to pick it up or pay even more to have it shipped.

The price in the Woodall RV mag says approx $7400 for the basic tralier. I agree, $9400 is pricey. I've tried a couple of times this week to contact the company with no response. I don't believe I'll be doing any business with them.
