Very nice! This is a trailer that I have always thought was so cool looking.

Thanks for building this.

Brand new American Dream Trailer comes with mattress, oars, oarlocks wheel chocks and title. It is perfect from every angle and yes, the boat fits upside-down on top of the trailer. Looking for a quick local sale so I can start building the next one. Sorry not interested in low offers or trades. Paul

Paul,

How tall is it? Would it fit in a normal garage? If I'm adding correctly, the overall weight is 670 dry, correct?

Hi Bonnie,
I measured the height at 5'11" allowing it to fit in a normal garage easy. I estimated the weight at 550 including the boat but will have an exact weight soon.

Talking Trailerboat built in Portland?

Who would have guessed?

Someone tried to start up a FGRV manufacuring in central Oregon, if memory serves me right. I understand he only made a couple of units. It was sort of banana shaped with dual axles and a rear entrance. Laid out much like Lil Snoozy. Donna?

ahhh Roger, the only one I can remember off the top of my head that fit your desciption was the Egg, but that was a looong time ago and not "cental" Oregon. And... more than a half-dozen years ago....
