New lighter weight trailer - Meerkat
 
Just saw this while surfing the internet. Little Guy has a new light weight trailer that may work for some us who are trying to find something that we can tow with our smaller vehicles. It called a MeerKat. Go to Little Guy's sight and check it out. Need some feed back on this one.

Link to more pics/specs.

I've fantasized a lot about having a really tiny trailer "just for me", and I'm likin' everything about this one except the evident lack of a propane system. Specs describe an "icebox", and there's certainly no room for a propane tank on the tongue. And the countertop single butane burner shown in the below pic just wouldn't do for me.

Might be upfittable, though...any idea as to asking price?

It seems to me that there are a lot of seams.

Eriba Puck clone.

Trailer details
 
I just called the number and got some more information about the trailer.
It is actually made by a company in San Diego California called Classic Trailers of San Diego. The sides are made of Aluminum and the top is Fiberglass.
It does have a 12 volt battery system which runs led lights, and also can be connected to 110 volt.
The only place that sell them is this place in San Diego, but he said he would be happy to ship them anywhere.
The price is $13,800 and he has one used one for $12,900.
He said he would email me pictures and I will try to post them when he does.

As others have mentioned, looks a lot like this 25 year old Eriba Triton. Even the construction is similar. Buy one today, seller sez it's the only one in the U.S.

I believe the Triton was the 16 footer and the puck came in under 14. look at the roof pop up, you can see the Puck and the Little guy/SanDiego trailer similarities and the Triton has a much larger pop up area.

Thanks for following up, Laura.

I think this is one worth watching, at least for me. I wonder if I could just buy the empty shell and customize for my own purposes...

Looking forward to hearing what you find out!

Lisa M., here's what your daughter needs!

I'm really happy to see this. Garage height, poptop, similar in many ways to my 44 year old Campster.

Downside is that it is narrower than the Campster/compact series so you can't sleep sideways. Upside of that is more visibility when towing, though.

HA, yes i saw the above posts and i know the below idea shown on the little guy site dosen't work for everyone...BUT... when i saw this image of what their galley included i thought there is a manufacturer that is not afraid of thinking outside the RVbox!

It looks similar to how we went about making our galley work :)

So far this has been quite economical for us. Typically one $1.85 cartridge has been good for ~3 to 4 days of meals & tea/coffee water.

Cheers,
Thom
