saw these last week in quebec

dennis and i saw these trailers (aluminum) while travelling in quebec last week.
the weights are very light. from what we could tell by peering in the windows (during the rain), they looked pretty nice.
anyone know of these or had any experience with them??

While the brochure is all in French, the specs are all English system (lbs, inches). No English text, no metric. Curious. Similar to a T@B or TADA but much lighter. I wonder if they are for sale in the US. Raz

Well Raz as they are made in Quebec by a Quebec company for reasons we cant talk about here they wouldnt put their brochure out in English even though if made any place else in the country it would require it to be published in both official languages. They sure as heck would not use the metric system as they relate that to our British crown. There are large parts of Quebec were there are no roads signs in both French & English. As I said dont ask!

the largest one is 14' long, a bit over 6' wide, and appears to have a bathroom and a dinette that makes up into a queen bed. Claimed dry weight is under 1200 lbs. Pretty good!

I bet the same layout could be done with a Eggcamper "Teardropp" FG trailer; the size is similar.

Those are nice looking rigs and the next time I go through that way I will stop in and take a look around. But I think the Trillim will likely stay on the hitch.
BTW ... are there any road signs, anywhere, in QC that are in English?
I guess I must have missed it.

These trailers look more aerodynamic than Trilliums are. They are also lighter so, they may provide considerable gas savings. They are one of very few trailer makes that look appealing to me but, for financial reasons, I'm not even dreaming of jumping the ship.

BTW. The last time I was there, the speed limit signs appeared to be in English

Nope didn't say that! The lack of English on the website is an internal Canadian issue.
