Still have to add many things: Lights, electricals inside, propane, water, trailer brakes, leveling jacks, spare tire, etc, etc. I wager by the time you are done, you are up to the weight of an egg and the cost, too. Then too, you have 8" wheels, if your utility trailer does.
With all the seams, I wonder at the rain tightness...

Well, if they ever come out with the finished product, I'd be happy to drive up to Loveland and take some pictures. But as for buying one, count me out. My egg has been through some monster thunderstorms and never leaked a drop. There no way you can temporarily fit a bunch of ABS plastic pieces together and make it as secure. That thing has more seams than a Chinese shirt factory.

Okay, so it can't be fiberglassed together and JB Weld probably won't work. How about buytl and stainless steel screws? I still think it's got to be way better than a tent or tent trailer and from the number of people that have asked about gutting an egg shaped trailer to rebuild to their specifications (big bed!) this might be something that would work. Like I said, it could go on a flat bed, it doesn't need to be just a utility trailer. I wish someone buy one and finish it, then we'd see...

For under $400 you can get a rubbermaid utility shed that's about 4x6' on the inside and close to 5x7 on the outside. It would be tempting to try cutting some windows into one of those and making a teardrop style camper for under $1000. Of course the "headroom" is around four feet, but it slides back for easy access. I'm tempted to try it. It would be a fun project, and I bet I could get my investment back.

Storage Capacity: 92 cubic feet
Inside Dimensions: 49 inches wide x 70 inches deep x 46 inches high
(Exterior is something like 60x80x54)
Structural foam floor supports up to 1,300 lbs/590.2 kg
Lid slides back for easy walk-in access
250 lbs
