Found this site, but I can't really read French. Front page provides English translation, but the rest go back to French. They are out of Quebec.

http://www.roulottesprolite.com/indexenglish.htm

Overall, the Mini-13 looks rather well for the overall size.I like the roundness of the exterior. I would move the stove cabinet rearward to gain a better sleeping area up front. Not sure that would hinder any tongue weight capacity other than make it lighter.

There is also a motorcycle version that is out, but I can't get any info on it. Looks like a rear entry setup rather than a side entrance. The rear entrance setup would be better for a 2-sleeper as it provide a 'channel' in the camper similar to that of the old Hunters.

I would guess if these came into the market of the fiberglass trailers, they would sell rather well in the US. The larger 14' and 17' provide a bathroom/stall for the convenience. I guess they are another potential competitor like TrailerCoach (http://www.taylorcoach.com/).

Those look like the trailers made by A-liner - "Cabin," something or other.

I forgot to add that I don't think these are also a 'true' fiberglass trailer. With the many square edges, that the exterior panel is some what fiberglass paper, with a wood structure behind it.

This is an interesting alternative, since most "ultra lite" travel trailers are light only in comparison to the average, and not light by our standards. Conventional trailers around 17 feet long are typically still wider than I want, and these are more like the classic egg width.

If nothing else, they may serve as floorplan inspiration sources.

I agree that they are likely not our style of fiberglass construction. I submitted a question about the material via their web site, and I will report the response (if I get one...)

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.
