Hey Jim! We are making it happen! We have worked all the molds, finished our frames, lined up suppliers and have wonderful craftsmen to build custom interiors to specs! Now we need some orders! So exciting I can't wait to put everyone's ideas on the road.

Jayne do you have a website that people can go to so they can see the specs and build details? Might help you get some orders if you provided more details and photos on the trailers as has been common for other fiberglass start ups to do.

For example some of us have questions regarding the actually construction of the trailer in regards to the seams etc. How many and where are they located and how are the parts of the mould been attached etc. What is the weight you expect the trailer to come in at dry or loaded?

The website is under construction and it's hard to say what the weight is, it's under 1000 pounds. The shell alone is 400. It depends on the amount of cabinets people want, the fridge or ice box, is there an ac in the unit or not? Since they are custom it's kind of up to each owner to decide how much their trailer will weigh. Every one of them however starts out under 1000 pounds. They are put together with 2 sides a front and a back with a top and a bottom. It's all one solid piece of fiberglass when complete so no leaks ever anywhere. I hope that helps.

Yup lots of our fiberglass trailer weigh in with nothing in them at 1000lbs but as most have found once you put all the items such as battery, propane, fridge, stove and your personal belongings in them they weigh far more than that. Lots of folks still looking to buy the elusive/rare 1000lb Boler!

1960-1963 would make them the first moulded travel trailers in North America. Sounds and looks about right. In the very late '50's and through the '60's there was a huge craze for fiberglass boats that were modelled after fifties automobiles. Dozens of companies through the US and Canada. I wondered why it took a decade for FG to catch on to travel trailers.

For those wanting more pics google "finned boats" or check out another forum I lurk on. Good fiberglass maintenance threads there too. FiberGlassics® - fiberglassics.com
