U-Haul Article

I have a subscription (which is free) with Cool Tears magazine. It has both teardrops and tiny travel trailers. I was not sure how to link it in as it is a pdf. They have a nice article on the U-Haul trailer and have a couple of black/white photos from the production facility. I didn't read the article as yet. The website is cooltears This is my attempt to link it in but don't know if it will work: http://media.wix.com/ugd/c636a2_d27d...07d277074f.pdf

Oh, it appears to work!

Glad you posted this!
I just printed off a copy of the article to share with folks who want to know a little more about U-Haul's venture into camper-building.
Are those 3 pics in the middle of the article from original factory production?!! That's what it looked like to me. Never seen ones like that before.
All the more fired-up to work on mine now....

Just read this article, enjoyed it very much although I am a Boler owner but wouldn't mind owning a VT or CT one day...I think that this article just made all vintage fiberglass trailer values go up a little, more so specifically for the U-Hauls VT's (only 59 made)!

Nice article. Those that are considered about "data" need to know that the file is 9.34 MB.


For those that own a U-Haul, have you looked at this article in the Document Center?

Thanks everyone, I enjoyed writing the article. A big thanks goes out to the folks at UHaul Corporation for providing the three production photos. Early on in the process, it became evident that photos of the VT were as elusive as the camper itself.

For those interested, I also had another article published about our UHaul CT -13 in the January/February 2015 issue of Cool Tears magazine.

The article indicates 8 production facilities planned. I know of only 4, Dayton,Youngstown, Atlanta and the pilot production plant in Tempe, anyone know of others?
