Orca Trailers

IF, I was looking for a tiny molded trailer that's a bit bigger than most teardrops, but along the same lines... I'd consider the Orca Trailer. Needs windows and obviously you'd do all the meal prep and eating outside. But still, it's cute!

They look like motorcycle trailers, is that what they are designed to carry? Is the inside finished?

I could really use one of those if it were a little larger. I need about 12'x6'x6' instead of 9.5'x5'x5'. Anyone have an enlarging ray?

While they do make one for camping obviously.(tent integrated) I don't see these even coming close to competition with a tear drop. They look smaller than a tear drop and don't provide a kitchen area.

These seem to be made for cargo use primarily.

Looks quite a bit bigger than a tear drop to me. And how many times have we read where people prefer to cook outside on the picnic table? I certainly didn't mean it was for everyone, but sometimes people with limited tow capacity need to think outside the box.

Key Information

Size 5 x 9
Gross Weight 750Lbs
Max Load 2,250
Axle 2,950Lb Torflex
Wheels 15 Aluminum Mag Rims
Tire Size 205 75R 15
Overall Height 78
Overall Length 162
Overall Width 80
Hitch Weight 75Lbs
Coupler 2 Automatic QuickBite

I'm not going to argue, and you seem like a large contributor to the site, which is awesome. Your first post in this thread is really misleading. It almost seemed like an advertisement. I looked at little guy teardrops, specifically the 5 wide model. It meets or beats it in overall size and still weighs under 1,000 pounds.

I also wonder if these Orca trailers have the ability to be opened from the inside. I would just feel like I'm stuck in a coffin.

We're good Alex. I'm just always looking for stuff on the web and the size/weight of the Orca might suit those that really need to tow light, but aren't interested in a tear drop. With the top opening/back opening hatch... it wouldn't be the greatest in the rain. It's not for me, but it might be for someone else. And at least it's molded so would fit this "towable molded" forum.

Donna is like me, just sharing interesting stuff we come cross. And we've had members asking about converting cargo trailers on the forum here in the past. Those folks are on the lookout for cargo trailers to build their own interiors. Cheers.
