To me, this looks like it should be an Astra.

Got to Michigan!

Got here and they are even better in person! I didn't think that was possible. They leave Michigan this morning and should get to the northwest Sunday morning. We plant to hit the ground running, when I started inventorying everything I realized the black plugs were actually to a whole other trailer!!! So we have the main mold for the awesome trailers you see but got a second bonus trailer to! Thanks for the support please keep sharing the go fund me link

They made it home!

They made it in one piece! They are at the manufacturer right now, Wednesday I meet with the frame welder, Thursday is the interiors designer. Everything is falling into place. My main focus right now is funding. Everything is ready for production but unless funding comes in we can't make any. Do you guys have any ideas? Should I offer pre sales? Custom orders? Bake sales? Lol please share your ideas. Also please keep sharing the go fund me link it has more pictures :-) Thanks guys!

Thumbs up Orders

We would seriously consider a custom pre-order. Let us know when you get close to production, and what you have in mind pricewise.

The manufacturer is going to build one in the next 30-60 days. He's going to use the first one as a practice to make sure everything fits right and works as planned. That one won't be up for sale just because it's not going to be "finished" with all the details it's mainly to figure out structure and where extra supports or reinforcements need to be added. The cost will be based on customized options. I want them affordable but they need to be high quality. Once the interior designer and welder give me their quotes I'll have a better grasp on pricing but I would for sure give special pricing for the first few orders. Kind of as a thanks for taking a chance on the trailers and myself. If someone is willing to place a presale custom order On the first one I would probably do it just for cost, in return for using it as advertising for future production.

Didn't I read you were planning to be wholesale. Selling exclusively to dealers? So do folks find a dealer first to talk about pre orders? Thanks in advance.

Direct sales

Yes I will sell directly to dealers. I will also take custom orders. I am factory direct so the orders get placed through me and then produced and shipped to either dealerships (large quantities) or direct customers who want a specific unit made for them. It's going to be great

Gotcha thanks. I'm sure you already know but one popular idea is to have anyone who buys volunteer to be on a list so other folks can see one in person.... hopefully in their own home state. For updates on your progress, I have been enjoying the gofundme site. Any other place you update to check out? I didn't know if you had a facebook or instagram you update more often. Thanks again.

Great idea

That's a great idea Ken, I do have a Facebook but it's my personal one. Guess its Time for a trailer page, I just didn't want to create one without a name but I guess that would be a good place to get suggestions for that to.

I sure hope that you have investigated the RV dealership system already. The discounts from list prices on conventional trailers is horrendous, sometimes up to 50% of MSRP (not that anyone pays msrp). A large part of why FGRV builders sell direct is that they would be priced out of the market if they had to include dealer profits as well.


That said, PM me if you would like a referral to one of the few honest and very successful RV dealers in SoCal (3 locations) who has indicated to me in the past that they would be interested in FGRV's if someone had a dealership plan.

I don't know how it works but you might look into "Kickstart" or as a last resort Shark Tank.
