Which trailers do not use rat fur?

I am totally new to RVing and fiberglass trailers. I was recently looking at a Burro trailer for sale ad and it looked like this particular trailer did not have any form of fabric/material covering the walls. I think I would like a trailer that does not have fabrics due to allergies.

Can anyone supply a list of trailers that do not use materials on the interior walls? Thanks!

Correct, the Burro interior is white gelcoat fiberglass. There are 2 fiberglass shells that make up the body, wiring insulation, etc run between the interior & exterior shells. - That's a key reason we went with a Burro. We travel with dogs and the interior is a dream to clean up. Great for allergies too.

The Oliver is similar with gelcoat interior. They are gorgeous but expensive.

Always ask the owner seller what is the interior finish of its shell, because over the years there may have been changes to perform ...

Our Oliver has no Rat fur. Just a clean gel coat finish on the interior shell. Easy to maintain and to attach suction cup and those 3M hangers on.
Cheers,

Trailers with no rat fur

EggCampers don't have anything on the walls. Not in production right now, but occasionally for sale...

Best of luck in your search!

If you were to post the materials your body can't put up with and the budget you are working with that would help with suggestions.
Older bolers don't have rat fur but have Ensolite interiors. If that product is a problem for you it is paintable.
Just a thought.

How about this? The only brand of trailer, the ONLY brand of trailer that has Rat Fur is Scamp.. after mid-1980s. Now, Rat Fur is truly marine-grade headliner material and other brands use that. But Rat Fur is strictly for Scamps as 'coined' by Pete Dumbleton here on FiberglassRV, so very many years ago.

Ed, Lil Snoozy is another fiberglass trailer without fabric on the walls, and they are made in St. Matthews S.C., and Parkliner is another, and it was made in N.C.
Best of luck in your search.

amerigos, a vintage-type trailer, have an interior of finished ply, not rat fur or ensolite. But as posted above, if you ask anyone selling a used trailer what's inside, that'd be good as people do remuddle things--I know we did!

Though Peanut still doesn't have rat fur or ensolite inside.

Some people find fibreglass out-gassing irritates their allergies. One would have to know your specific allergy to offer any useful suggestions.

Saw a 70's Trillium at a lot in Tucson yesterday, taking the kid to the Airport, no rat fur, soft material must have been ensolite? Neat little thing.

Trillium

Vintage Trillium campers incorporated a vinyl-coated ensolite interior liner. The Trillium Outback trailers produced in Alberta utilize a "marine quality carpeting". Escape trailers manufactured in British Columbia utilize a "unique insulated vinyl headliner/wall covering".

Which trailers do not use rat fur?

INTERIOR WALLS BY BRAND

Smooth gelcoat: Oliver, Happier Camper, Parkliner 16, EggCamper, Burro, U-Haul

Textured fiberglass: Lil Snoozy

Vinyl over closed cell foam: Escape, Scamp (pre-1985), Boler, Trillium

Paneled: Bigfoot, Relic

The list is not exhaustive, but it includes recent offerings and some common vintage units.

All trailers have curtains, upholstery, carpet, and other soft surfaces where allergens can accumulate. The walls are just one piece of the picture.

Marine headliner (Scamp's "rat fur" is one variation) is non-absorbent, so a good steam cleaning and occasional vacuuming should minimize issues.
