. It is the last left-over TowRow inventory made by Ted Valbert in either 2005 or 2006 and transfered with the sale of the molds to Paul (who has been trying to sell it since he got it in February of this year). Ted was unable to sell the trailer and it had been sitting in a warehouse in Washington since it was manufactured four or five years ago. When Ted was making TowRow trailers he was getting $2,995 for both the trailer and boat. He made one or two replacement boats for ~$600, in the day.
FYI, you might want to look at Paul's ad for this same trailer and boat at this link: Teardrops & Tiny Travel Trailers :: View topic - Tow/Row for sale (like Trailorboat but newer) PRICE REDUCED!
and notice two things. First, Paul was asking $2,900 for the combo in March of this year and it didn't sell, and second, Paul has added the finished interior shown in the Craigslist ad, hence the higher price.
Finally, as I said the first time, "Actually not a bad price for the trailer Paul is selling as he now gets ~$1,400 + shipping for a reproduction BOAT alone."
If you want a real shocker, call Paul at American Dream Trailer Company at 503 997-4234 and ask what a new trailer and boat that HE makes will cost
. Have a suitable chair close by.
