Humm, looks interesting, but I don't think I've ever seen it here. That's not saying much however

Weird looking thing, not all that purdy. (IMHO)

Maybe if fixed up nice, though.

Camilla, you were right and it's in the Intro thread: Hi, I am.... Lots of pictures. Maybe Jamie will pop back in, it hasn't been all that long Last Activity: 12-01-2012 06:32 AM

Roy mentioned it here, even if the URL is dead: New Fiberglass Trailer Manufacturer?

I also found the article interesting in it mentions the Amerigo is only seven feet high so it can fit in a standard garage. The low centre of gravity is ideal for towing with a compact car...

Umm... WOW! Does that ever look like a cool lots of work! The panels around the wheels don't line up with the rest of the fibreglass, do you think that they are removable? What are the boxes in them?
At $300, I would be way too tempted if it wern't 29hrs away.

Could be very cool. And look at that cute little Boler in the article.
