Like you, we are fiberglass camper enthusiasts and we are committed building very high quality campers that are easy to use, provide creative ways to haul/store your camping gear, and provide a comfortable queen size bed to sleep in. We have some very exciting things that we are working on and we would love to have your support as we begin this great adventure.

I've attached a few photos. Happy Camping!!

Congratulations on the new venture!

The shell appears similar to Weiscraft, which is also based on Colorado. Any connection? Do you do anything special in the fiberglass layup to harden it for off-road use?

Seems like there is a niche for a small backcountry trailer with stand-up headroom. Most I see are sleepers with racks on top.

Sho 'nuff looks like a Little Joe/Lite House shell. I don't know about the shell, but the frame and running gear looks considerably beefier than on my Lite House, which probably accounts for the extra weight, at least 400 pounds more. Hope they do well!

When will manufacturers figure out people also need to camp in rainy weather and in cool weather? This trailer has no provision for interior hookup to propane for a stove or portable heater and no countertop space for either one of those items. If I am going to spend the better part of 20k for a trailer I want to have both of those features to at least be a part of a minimal featured camping trailer. Plus there should at least be a portable electric fridge offered as an option.

I see this as a great addition for camping. Younger folks will appreciate a dry place to sleep and stand up to put on ones pants. Bring a warm sleeping bag and cook under a tarp. I did it many times in a soggy tent. If I were 20 years younger Id want one! Now I appreciate my Casita. I hope all the best!

I am with you. Yet, I note that Happier Camper has a similar, minimalist design and they seem to be doing ok (AFAIK). There seems to be some demand for this type of unit.


Personally, I am already there with my Hauley. Minimalist camping... a bit more minimalist than this new once, since I don't have a sink module, built-in upper cabinets, lights, etc. But it's paid for, and that's my favorite feature!

You are correct Jon. We are using the WeisCraft / Litehouse shell. We made a new mold for the bottom half and got rid of the wheel wells to increase storage inside. We have stiffened the top half of the mold by using core matting in the fiberglass process. You can stand of the roof rack with no trouble at all.

Thanks for checking us out!

K Corbin - one of our customers has been taking it to ski races with his son and using a ceramic heater when hook-ups are available and a Mr. Buddy when not on grid. Traditional RV furnace options are also available if that is what is desired but that will not be a standard option on this camper.

We also have an account with ENGEL coolers so we have several 12v fridge options available should that be desired.

Thank you for the feedback.

Glenn, on the camper shown, we have an 11 gallon freshwater tank (roadshower) on the roof rack and then we have an 8 gallon tank in the "sink pod" inside that drains to the exterior. We have a freshwater fill on the driver side to fill the interior tank, a shurflo pump, 12v faucet, and a dometic flip-up sink. In this particular trailer, we used a portable grey water tank. A greywater tank under the floor is something that could be installed.

Thank you for checking us out and we appreciate your feedback.

Josh
