Hi Ivan, and welcome. Some Lander fans have been here and speak very highly of this trailer.

Are you the inventor?

Yes, welcome Ivan. Nice looking trailer. Do you have any interior pictures to share? I can imagine there is a number of members of this forum that would love to see them, starting with me!

Welcome!

Your English is just fine. It is perfectly understandable, and also has that certain Italian charm added. We are all completely used to the English of native speakers and maybe a little bit bored with it even

I, too, would love to see photos of the inside of your Lander. The European caravans that I've seen have really nice interiors with good craftsmanship.

We do have (at least) one other Italian forum member with a Lander, so you are not completely alone (I think hers is slightly smaller).

Are you related to the Lander company? Or do you just happen to have the same name.

Again, welcome!

Raya

Ivan:

It looks like a combination of the Boler and Uhaul or Burro. The Lander does not have the plain lines of the Boler; it is curvier. It does have the Center division like the Boler, that is the top and bottom, not side by side like the UHaul and Burro The Burro and UHaul have curvier lines than the than the Boler, but more curvier than the Lander. So if you combine the Boler and the UHaul, taking the top and bottom combination of the Boler and adding slightly less than the curve of the UHaul and making it a little darker tan, you kind of end up with the Lander. Don't you think?

I can tell you haven't tried to fit shelves or counters to a Boler lately. Curve city!

(Funny how perceptions are; I "see" Bolers as curvier than Burros or Trilliums) (And I like square, hence my "square" cars)
