There is just no easy way to say this.
I bought a used T@b the other day.
I was trolling on CraigsList as usual and stumbled across a listing for an inexpensive trailer and I was intrigued.
So I went to see it and made arrangements for it to follow me home?
I do feel a little dirty.
For those who don't know them,the T@b is a Teardrop shaped trailer but is more of a cross between a 13' Egg and a Teardrop.
I can stand inside as well as in a 16' Casita
and like our glass eggs there is a freakish amount of usable space inside.
The entire design leans toward the Euro Theme but with a big part of traditional crappy Stick-Built Craftsmanship.
The Fixures are Euro but the rest is fake wood badly assembled.
The trailer is very solid,I think more so than Fiberglass as the shell is a Metal/Foam/composite thing and the sides do not flex at all like FG.
The rig feels like the size of a 13' egg but seems much lighter weight
and overall is very cozy inside.
I can not figure out exactly how one would sleep inside it yet and the folding couch and table are mind boggling in operation so far.
The kitchen is inside unlike most teardrops and everything is there too.
The door and windows
are very nice and the windows
are all double paned,unbreakable thermoplastic and have integral screens and shades. The windows
open to an amazing degree and also close and lock tight.
The running gear is unlike anything I have seen really,using an Al-Ko Torsion Axle
setup than can also take bolt-on shocks readily.
The coupler is shock absorbing and flexible presumably to provide a better ride?
I also can not figure out how to lock the coupler closed to the ball on a hitch?
There is a Surge Brake and a Hand Brake that is set when parked.
There are 4 landing gear and until I deployed them it was a WILD ride attempting to go inside the trailer!
Overall it is a really impressive little package and I have no idea what I will do with it.
It may be the perfect thing to take on impromptu outings as it is a whole lot more quick and simple to deploy than the 17' Casita
sort of "back to Basics"?
One thing I know though is that I need to stop Trolling on Craigslist.....No good can come of it!
I will post pictures soon as again the details are really interesting to say the least.
