We have one...

Just picked up our Helio O2 two weeks ago. Tow with 2018 Subaru Outback base model. We are near Reading PA. Any other Helio owners who would like to chat or camp let us know. We had an Aliner Scout for 12 years, an Aliner 400 2004 , and a 1963 Apache Eagle. Not sure how to post a pic here....

I believe one or two other O2 owners have posted recently. Try the “site search/google” option at the bottom of the search menu on “Helio O2” to find the posts. You can connect directly with the owners using the private message system if desired (click on the user name in any post to get a private message option).

To post a picture, look for the paper clip icon. If you don’t see it, click “go advanced.” After you choose the picture(s) and click “upload,” wait for the upload to complete before posting. It can take a while.

Welcome, and congratulations on your new trailer!

Great! Have you camped in it yet? We got an awning, Haskita. Works pretty good with 3 suction cups. We also got a lithium battery 50 amp from Gowesty.com out of CA. Pretty reasonable price. We are going out 6/28- 7/3 in NY State Letchworth SP. Everything worked great first time out. Friend me on FB.

Tell me more about your awning? Does it slide into the track on the side of the HELIO?

Please note that the Helio is not a molded fiberglass trailer. It is constructed of panels of insulation that have fiberglass material bonded to them. Then those panels are joined together and gel coat is sprayed onto that structure.

Two very different methods of construction. The method this forum is focused on is molded fiberglass where strands of fiberglass and resin are sprayed inside of a form that first has a layer of gel coat sprayed inside of it. After curing the shell is then removed from the mold.

This forum is focused on molded fiberglass trailers rather than panelized construction methods. The Helio is a nice looking trailer, this is just a reminder that a Helio is not made the same way as the molded fiberglass Casitas, Bigfoot, Scamps, Bolers, etc.

Apples and strawberries both classified as fruits but not the same. The same applies to panellized monocoupe and molded monocoupe, both are trailers that use fiberglass but they are not the same thing.


The Helio has more in common structurally speaking with a T@B trailer than it does with a Casita.

I started a HELIO owners page on Facebook if you want to look for it. I love my HELIO O3. I bought it this past Spring 2020 in Salem, OR. I live in Seattle.
