Will, I've moved this topic to General Chat. And while the trailer brand is NOT molded fiberglass, they do have fiberglass panels.

However, FiberglassRV forum is dedicated to molded lightweight fiberglass RVs, you may find a more objective discussion on that type or brand of trailer at the Open Road forums on RV.net HERE

1-piece Marine ABS
w/ Linoleum Flooring

This caught my eye. What's 1 piece, the camper? Not likely.
But it is interesting, I'd like to see much more detail on construction than they give in their website to even take a closer look at one.

I was looking at the 18 footer, didn't even bother with the rest. Didn't see anything that would sway me from my 17' Casita dream tho.

With gas prices what they are, I expect that we will start to see all kinds of new lightweight travel trailers popping up. The big luxury RVs just aren't selling as well and people are starting to think in terms of smaller & lighter weight models.

Aren't we smart to already have them?!

If it DOES happen - it hasn't happened yet. My wife and I went to a local RV show in february. Other than a room with about 4 or 5 pop-ups in it, there was NOTHING in terms of small light trailers. All kinds of "lite" trailers of course, but I have a natural aversion to calling anything "lite" that's 30 feet long and weighs 2 tons.

It IS worth pointing out that although they weren't at the show there seems to be several new models of small lightweight stickies out there. They all seem to be ripping off the designs that Shadow Cruiser has been building for a few years now - with some minor variations. Par for the course in the RV industry.

Mike

My little 13 ft FiberGlass Boler already has most of what is in these things in addition I have a 1piece molded floor that wont absorb moisture OR rot. All the options are also available to anyone who wants to add these things. Biggist plus is my lower weight.
