New (Fiberglass) kid on the block
 
Saw an ad for this today: armadillo trailer manufacturing

They are modern, but pricey. A 13' costs $24,900 CAD, about $19,500 US.

Thought some of you might like to see it.

If you do a Google site search on "Armadillo" you can pull up several previous threads. They are a low-volume, semi-custom manufacturer, hence the price. Very nicely finished with high quality, according to those who have seen one.

They're pursuing a similar niche market as Relic Trailers. Armadillo has a modern aesthetic while WA-based Relic is decidedly retro.

My chance of seeing either is pretty slim!

Armadillo Manufacturing is a commercial member here on FiberglassRV. Aren't we lucky when the owner/manufacturer of an all-molded-towables wants to be here with us! :dance

It's cute and looks to be high quality. Lacks a lot of features I would want though.

I LOVE that undercarriage storage drawer behind the bumper! I actually emailed these guys a month ago, I was wondering if they had any plans to expand into the US. Here is part of the response I received:

We will be working with at a national US RV Dealership chain in 2017, but we’re still going through various lengthy, incredibly time-consuming certification processes. Currently we only sell factory-direct and through dealerships in Canada.

Having said that, we already have US customers, but at this time they are required to bring the trailers into the US directly then register with their state DMV.


So I guess I've got a bit of a wait to get my hands on one, unless I want to make a road trip :D

Plenty of Escape trailer owners have gone on road trips to pickup their trailers in Chilliwack, BC. :dance The difference between Armadillo and Escape is that Escape imports the trailer into the US at the Sumas, WA border, then hands off the trailer to the buyer. Easy peasy!

Road trip! :thumb
