I know the T@B trailer now has a lightweight all fiberglass version, but I've never seen it listed here or posted here as a trailer. Is that because it's not two-piece or molded?

Personally, I was never interested in a T@B because I can't stand upright in them. But I do see them on the roads.

The T@B isn't molded fiberglass. It's a fairly conventionally constructed trailer: wooden frame with "fiberglass" (I think it's actually FILON: UV-protected fiberglass reinforced plastic) cladding on the outside. Not all that much different than many of the big blob-mobiles.

I think they're cute though. Much more attractive than the typical stickie. I also like them for thinking small. Gives you a much more "camping" experience as opposed to an "RVing" experience.

Contrary to architect Louis Sullivan's classic dictum, in T@B's design form flouts function.

The first time I saw one at an RV show I decided that it was certainly an option I did not wish to take in an RV purchase. The first time I saw a Casita and a Scamp, I decided right away that was the option I was going to take.
