Hello all. I am new here, obviously. Interestingly enough, I found this site after Melvin Klotz's son posted his Quantum 5th wheel on another forum I'm on, www.comancheclub.com for Jeep Comanche lovers. Needless to say, I thought pulling a 5th wheel behind a Comanche was the coolest thing I'd ever seen. So I started searching like mad to see if there were any here on the east coast. Like Melvin, I finally stumbled across this site.

That being said, my new obsession with finding all possible 5th wheel trailers for a compact/midsize pickup recently produced this find. Not sure if you guys would consider it a sticky, glass, or quasi-combo. If anything, it is definitely a unique product.

its glass with a whole new towing twist. The company is in Oregon, kinda near where I am. I don't have the bucks to even consider one, or I would go down and have a look.

They have a model that can be tugged by an SUV.

Welcome to the site! We do love our fiberglass (we call them eggs) trailers here! I looked at the site and yep, it would be considered a fiberglass! Sure is cool-lookin' Did not look at the price cause we can't trade up right now anyway. Thanks for the link!

I notice on their website video they are doing all their turns on wet concrete so you can't se how the rear tires are be warped when making turns.

Kaiser sold a similar camper setup to the Truck Tag in the late '60s for their CJ5 Jeeps. Interesting that the CJ5 couldn't tow much when it came to a trailer. The camper was a workaround to that problem by transferring most of the weight to the camper tag axle. The extra axle also improved stability by lengthening the effective wheelbase, which was especially short with the CJ5 alone.

i was more interested in the 5th wheel than the actual tag-along for me. the suv version, if you look at it, can't be more than about 8ft of trailer. i can't imagine any real advantage of having that over a small towable. I didn't see any pricing on them either.

The SUV Tag has a slide out, as do they all (Except maybe the 5th.. I didn't look) so it is just a tad bigger than you would expect.

I think the advantage is the way it tows, probably more stable, and the fact that you could put another trailer on it for toys etc without technically towing a double.

The wheels are up front so tongue weight *should* be improved, and the "hitch" is 2 bars, on on each side.. making the down weight in the back less of an issue.

Haven't seen one in person though. I wish I could.

We've discussed this before... back in 2008: New Camping Unit Called a TAG, SUV type and Pick-up Truck type. According to one of the posts in that topic, the company has been in business since 2005. I'd think after this time, we'd see one or two in Oregon.... at least.

Very neat rigs, I really like the large beds in the 8' pickup models & 5th Wheel. Seems like the 5th wheel has slide out like the others, except the SUV models. Showers seems a little tight from diagrams. Not sure if there is anything in the slide out part.
