While they are not completely molded fiberglass trailers, they do have a molded fiberglass roof (from rain gutter up) and the pop top piece is also molded fiberglass. The skin is aluminum sheet, the chassis and walls are welded steel tubing. If one should get the chance to stick their head in one and take a look, you'll enjoy the old world craftsmanship of quality wood fit and finish instead of the more mass produced "toasters" we have grown use to. These are great little trailers and might be better appreciated here in the states as a cared for old car would. All of the Hymer-Eriba model line is still well sought after and well enjoyed in Europe. For just the usual camping needs, the consumable nature of our fiberglass eggs seems more suited to our wild west needs. The typical US Puck example is a great little trailer and truly light weight. The Puck I had tipped the scales at 650 pounds...yes, that was a real and certified scale. No water on board or camping gear other than the awning/tent, but a true 650 pounds. The larger Familia model (I replaced the Puck with) weighed just under 980 pounds road going. The one advertied is a Familia. That model would be very hard to find in the US. The smaller Pucks were imported by VW dealers in the 60's, the Familia was not. As for Canada...? To all, look them over if you can! If one has interest, they should check out ...thesamba.com

I have a VW shop here in Central Fl and they are a fine example of German engineering and workmanship. They are highly considered for the VW purist as pulling one of these can be done with a stock VW bug with a 1600cc 62 HP bug or bus. I am looking for one to pull behind a bus that I have now. I have a boler and although they are built very well ( I restored the one I have myself) you can't beat the weight difference between them. My Boler weighed in at 1260lbs. As far as being more or less the same accomodations they are practically they same. I mean its 13' for crying out loud there really isn't much you can do in there anyway!

I could see pulling a Puck with a VW bug, but this is the larger model -- I know it's still light, but light enough for a Bug?

BTW, nice bus! I have a hankering for one but they're too sought after now and thus a bit expensive (for me).

Joe,

Not sure what you mean by "this Puck"? The trailer in this thread is not a Puck, but is the larger model that I think is a Familia or maybe a Faun. At any rate, I'm not the one selling it (see original post in thread).

I did look at a couple of Pucks before buying my Boler, but didn't buy them for a few reasons, some of which I note below:

1) Even though I'm "only" 5'5" the beds were pretty small for me, and I anticipated doing some summer "working/camping/living" in my trailer.

2) From what I've seen it's fairly hard to come by one that does not need fairly significant restoration, once you look past the outer layer. I agree that the craftsmanship is superior to many of the US/Canadian eggs, but I guess the materials used just aren't as tolerant of neglect.

For example, on the ones I looked at, the plywood floor was delaminating and buckling underneath. Also the wall-covering (a vinyl type thing that seems to be stretched over a framework, something like an automotive headliner sometimes is) needed attention. And there was some delam of the (nicely made) plywood cabinets. Then there is the fact that I'm not as handy with aluminum (shell dents and etc.) as I am with fiberglass.

It was quite impressive how they saved weight by using the lightest, thinnest possible plywood for cabinets and such. You have to kind of laugh at how our Bolers, Scamps, Trilliums, and etc. use this crazily heavy particle-board type stuff for cabinet doors and tables, when they're striving to be lightweight. I wonder what they all weigh, put in a pile.

It would be interesting to know how much, for example, a new Boler vs. a new Puck cost (not in terms of outright dollars, but adjusted for each country's "value" of money). Our small fiberglass eggs of the 70's were certainly built to a price, which is reflected in things like the "particle board" doors and some of the glass work. Luckily they are fairly simple and easy to work on.

Now, give me a Westy bay window or split bus.... :swoon:

Raya
