Yes the wood on the ceiling is wood paneling - similar to how a number of older Tin Can trailers are done. The interior was done by a Vintage trailer company in Washington State thus the "canned ham" look to it.

I love, love, love the extra kitchen counter space! But would prefer larger windows also. Outside design is super.

Lets hope they will step up to the plate with customer service, warranty work, and quality control unlike a few other small fiberglass startups.

Sorry for dropping of the radar, I have just been so busy getting these beauties ready to show. We had great responses. Please follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Thanks!

It's incredible how fast this went from dusty parts and forms found in an old factory being purchased off the web (isn't that right?) to a fully (and nicely!) detailed prototype on display at a rally. Now that's the way to get a start-up started up! Jayne, can you share with us a little timetable from first coming across the parts and forms to now? I assume this first one is from assembling the pre-made parts purchased in the deal - is that right?. Are you to the point of producing new parts from the forms yet?

We had a trailer with a front jalousie window and never got rain in the front. It did have a rock guard but not a water tight device by any means.

It did go by fast! Well it's all been since March. The blue and white one was the original yellow one that was most completed. The equipment was in pristine condition, just dusty! How lucky was that! We have produced a completed shell and misc parts from the equipment and everything is ready to go. We brought the blue and white trailer to the Lynden show to get some feedback on the trailers. It was a huge success, lots of interest in them. We have done a couple interviews for local news papers, one on DIY RV and an on radio interview with Pink Flamingo RV Radio. We have put together the most amazing group of people who are all like minded in quality craftsmanship and period correct detailing. It's very exciting.
