Red face

Not fiberglass, at least not molded fiberglass, but a neat sleeping place at least: http://swamplot.com/faro-out-extra-vehicle...ets/2009-08-17/

Addendum
Steve DeWeese: Would not want to go this route as well. I would not want to go without my shower & the head, or the frig, etc. But an interesting concept, especially the beds & table at the "foot". When I started out camping, I would have been a happy camper with one.

As for the looks of the trailer, I like it, very neat looking, good design to it.

I'm not trying to be negative or hateful, everybody has different taste as we all know. I really don't like it. I think it looks smaller and not to pretty. I do like to look at different trailer designs, so don't stop posting.

Reminds me of the Miti-Lite in layout and function - except with a rear door for gear loading (but the Miti-Lite could take a boat on top, so they were thinking "gear" too).

I'm surprised that it weighs 1300 - 1400 lbs. "dry" since he's designed it to be pulled by a 4-cylinder car. It would have been nice if he could have trimmed weight from the typical small trailer weight, not added a bit.

It's nifty though. I'm glad creative people are building things!

It's not my taste either, because I prefer something different. But that doesn't mean it wouldn't be a perfect fit for someone else.

Keep posting these kinds of things. It's only through comparisons we can make objective decisions.
