Missing Fiberglass Camper Manufacturer?

There is a company in Quebec making stick campers with fiberglass roofs and , I believe, sides called Pro-Lite. I believe these would qualify as Fiberglass campers, what do you think?

Stick campers, not molded fiberglass like a boat or a truck camper shell.

We've seen a number of the Pro Lites and they look very nice. I believe they are made in Quebec.

They appear to have a fiberglass skin wrapped over a conventional frame, so they aren't all-molded fiberglass, which is the particular focus of this forum.

Molded fiberglass trailers are made in one or more trailer-sized molds and joined (often fiberglassed together) to form a self-supporting shell. They do not have a structural wood or aluminum frame inside the walls or roof, nor panel seams to develop leaks.

The distinction is not obvious from the forum name, but the home page spells it out.

Nice to see other small, lightweight alternatives to giant RVs, though!

Lots of RVs use fiberglass somewhere in the construction, but as has been pointed out, the fiberglass isn't a shell - it's essentially cladding attached to a structure. So no, FGRV isn't missing a manufacturer in this case.

Our campers have been dubbed "eggs" because of the "Shell" nature from which they are formed.

SO, to me, this rv would be like trying to wrap Saran wrap around a baby chicken and calling IT an "egg".
