There is a different World on the other side of the pond. Polish factory http://www.niewiadow.pl/ produced fiberglass travel trailers since 1958 under communist regime. Their distribution included mostly eastern and western European countries. You can see pictures of progression (sorry, no translation) since their first model 11 long at 1250 lb. It seems as factory discontinued full fiberglass construction and continue with more conventional method of sandwich construction. Their new 09 model Look_for_N_340_Nova_tab coming out is slightly over 11 long at 1870 lb (2200 lb max) and it is no longer full fiberglass construction. Based on deployment of robotic arm to cut openings for windows the product quality is likely good. This is a good example of $7/gal impact on camping lifestyle. While installing Onan generator on my 21RB Bigfoot trailer I noticed a solid steel crossbar welded on the frame, a likely whooping 150 lb extra weight or about 10% of the polish trailer weight.

The N126 and N127 are full fiberglass models.
They are still sold in the Netherlands ( http://www.predom.nl ), so probably not discontnued.

And the Predoms are the Cadet and Captain trailers that were sold in Canada.
