Hello from SF Bay Area

Hey there,
I'm hoping to find a fiberglass trailer that might work for me. I need it to serve two purposes: For camping with a family of five as well as for motorcycle race weekends (only me). I've considered a toy hauler, but most I've seen seem a little short on amenities. I guess I'm attracted to the fiberglass travel trailers because most of them seem to be more efficiently put together and of a higher quality that the other (non-fiberglass) trailers out there.
Thanks,
Rob

Welcome to the Forum.

I'm prejudice as I think they are also put together better.
It will be a challenge for your requirements.
But I'm sure there's one out there with your name on it.

Do you haul your m/c in a truck?

The perfect trailer for your purposes is really rare:
Rebuild of a Trillium Sportsman

and, it would take some work, if you ever find one, since they were built with nothing inside.

Hi Rob, to FiberglassRV, we're glad you're here

The only currently manufactured all molded towable I can think of that would suit your needs is the Lil Snoozie. We have a member here that bought one and he's dubbed it the Lil Hauley.

Good luck on your egg hunt!

Mike ordered it as a utility use trailer.

road trip to Snoozyville

They fixed him up with a heavier trailer for his purposes.

Yep. Haul my bike in the back of my Ram 1500. My plan would be to keep it there and tow the trailer for sleeping and hanging out in between races.

I don't know how old your kids are, but a Parkliner with the bunk option might work for you.

It might be tough to sleep all 5 of you in a trailer. Perhaps one, or more, would like to sleep in a tent or in the back of your truck. When it rains you could tuck everyone inside the trailer if you put one on the floor.

One way to get a look at trailers is to go to an RV storage facility. Of course you won't be able to look inside but you'll be able to get an idea from the outside. (If you see one you like you could send a note to the owner through the manager. Perhaps the owner would show it to you, or sell it!)

We live in the SF Bay Area too; San Anselmo. We found it too difficult to find a used trailer and ended up getting a new one and could not be happier. One thing about the FGRVs is they hold their re-sale value well.

Wishing you the best in your search. Send me a private message if you'd like to talk.

I'm always day dreaming when camping and when not camping.

I watch so many westerns and serials like Wagon Train, etc.
I can envision sleeping "under the wagon" if it's high enough.
Or if I lost enough weight to fit under it. That would handle 4 more.

There's room for 1 or 2 under our main bed.

The only current manufacturer I know about that can sleep 5-6 people with no one sleeping on the floor would be a Standard Scamp 5th wheel (side bath). Two in the loft, two in the gaucho (bunks) and two in the rear dinette. BUT whoever is sleeping in the loft had better NOT need to get up and use the bathroom in the middle of the night!

Actually, sleeping a small person (or two) under the rear dinnette is doable... IF the dinette DOESN'T use the post into the overturned bowl attachment. Remember as a kid, you liked the fort made out of a card table and a sheet over the top? (am I DATING myself?) that's kinda what the person sleeping under the dinette would have. Of course, you'd need to store all the "stuff" you normally store under there

I'm with Carl, I love dreaming about the Old West, too. You've gotta see the new Lone Ranger movie with Johnny Depp! Come to think of it, Rango (animated flick with Johnny Depp) was also a great western!
