New "Idea" Trailer Option

Here's another new entry into the light weight trailer arena. It appears to be a hybrid between molded fiberglass and fiberglass panels. 3 sizes available and price pretty reasonable. Made in Louisville, Ky.

We often pass by the Indiana factory on our way back to Michigan from visiting our son & family in Indianapolis.

Notice the weight too. All three trailer options have the same total weight limit, with smallest having the most "left over" as a cargo limit. Am betting that they all use the same axle/suspension.

"Travel Lite"..... Hmmm. Lite and 2500+ lbs should be mutually exclusive terms.
"Can pull with a 6 cylinder" tells a lot as well.

They are, of course, referring to a Dodge Ram super duty pickup with the Cummins Diesel which is a 6 cyl.

Too heavy for us! I wonder why manufacturers keep making camers/trailers bigger and heavier when what we need is modest size and light weight?

That's what the members of this forum want. However, it seems that what "the majority of the buying public" wants is much, much, much bigger, with weight being something "no-one" considers.

As a biz, you make production decisions based not one what YOU want but on what the potential customers want. If most people wanted small,ultra-light trailers, there would be lot of 'em being made. But when stick-built trailers are for sale such that they are twice as big for half the price, there is very little market for small, light F/G ones. As a result "eggs" are a niche market, not a mainstream one.

No thanks and the only thing molded on it is the nose section.
