I try to think outside the box when need fit meets functionality (and budget). Years ago we had a new member Cathy Mutch join us. She had a converted all-molded fiberglass cargo trailer she and her Dad had converted into a travel trailer. She's no longer around, I don't think she felt really welcome... which is too bad. Cool trailer! Check out her album. Pictures by catrinka613 - Photobucket And remember, even if it's not for you... it was for her, and it fits this forum of all molded fiberglass towables. There's a couple of brand of currently manufactured molded travel trailers that are great for someone other than me. But I still welcome their participation in these forums....

Now that is neat, I wonder where she got that. It's a precursor to Lil Soozy. My first trailer was a toy hauler and if it had a bathroom I'd still have it. You can open the back and get a add-a-room and sit on the veranda, it was real nice.

That Ironhorse definitely has potential-
I could see adding canvas at the top of the upper opening panel, like on some of the pop-tops.
According to their page at Specifications of the Ironhorse Trailer, Flip Top motorcycle trailersMotorcycle Trailering, there's 7 ft of headroom when it's open.
But- YIKES!
According to this ad for a used one, they cost almost ten grand new...
http://www.ronsradrides.com/browse-a...glass-trailer/

That's a lot of money for a "good start"...

A bare, empty Snoozy shell is about $9000 also, if I recall correctly. Hm, the Ironhorse has potential. Maybe I need to watch for a used one, that one you linked to sold for under $5K.

Anyone know who makes the trailer that Catrinka has?

Catrinka's trailer looks a bit like one of these from Trailers Unlimited Inc. - 6'W X 6'H X 12'L

The 6x6x10 is $4700.00 Canadian.



They sell/rent office trailers, too.

H-o-o-o-boy!
If this "Shuttle" isn't the customize-it-yourselfer's dream, I don't know what is.
Trailers Unlimited Inc. - Trailer Specials
Brand, spankin' new, 6' wide x 6'2" tall x12' long, on special right now for $5250.00 Canadian.
I can't find weights listed at their site, but it's got a 3500 lb torsion axle. Since it's a cargo trailer a lot of that capacity has to be for the load, right?
I'm guessing that it weighs less than 2000 lbs.
The axle's pretty far aft, though- could be tongue heavy


If I was in the market for a new trailer, I'd be looking hard at this one, especially if I lived near Calgary!

I thought about getting a box trailer and doing a custom floorplan to make exactly what I wanted out of it. If I were a bit more handy and had more available time to devote to making the trailer before using it, I would have probably gone that way. For me, the use of the trailer is the reason for its existence, not the building of it. For someone with the time to make the actual building of their trailer a major portion of their trailering experience, however, I can fully understand how this could be a GOOD THING. Donna's right (as usual) there is plenty of room on this forum for all kinds of FGRVs and all kinds of people (and reasons for) using them!

Thanks, Francesca! If I read their website correctly, it only weighs 1000 lbs and has a 2500 lb carrying capacity.
