Googling it is not very helpful, more than 100,000 hits, hard to find the 1 hit that shows this table. A patent number or a link would make it easy to find for everyone.

Chandler.......are you looking for dealers or plan to only offer direct sales like the others?
Welcome to the forums, I look forward to yours when it opens.

Thank you all very kindly, as we say here in NC.

Don, thank you for your offer to test it out. I have had lots of folks applying [unsolicited] for that job, but I just can't afford them all. I'm sure it would look fine behind a vintage Lincoln though —better than the old truck I drive around most of the time.

The current sales plan is to keep selling them over the web and out of the factory; it seems to work well for other fiberglass RV manufacturers, gives the personal touch I like when I buy something for myself, and enables better potential for relationships with buyers —essential for the critique and praise needed for product establishment and improvement.

Ideas from owners are worth a mint —from those who live it —different from speculation by onlookers —and different from my own ideas about Park Liner!

I need to quit writing, and help put children to bed.

Best, Chandler

SherryNPaul, Thank you for the link that included the patent application number, that helped a lot.

Here is another link that shows drawings of the table, in case anyone else is interested.

Chandler,

Im sure that you have researched your competition. I have a Liberty Deluxe, 17 foot. The best thing about it is the king size bed.
The most popular selling Casita is the Spirit, but it required you to sleep across the camper, and has a smaller bed.

Have you considered a 'best of both worlds' 21 foot or so camper, that would have a layout that would allow a king size bed and sleep the length (as opposed to the width) of the camper, but still have a side booth?

Just my suggestion. Dont know if it is becuase Im 6'3", or just like a King bed!

Any thoughts on a "King Size Egg" from your shop?

Their site would be much more informative if it included floor plans.

Herb, I'll see if I can get a floor plan up on my site either today or tomorrow.

Gene? [hope that is right], I have made it so you can stand up in my trailer at 6' 4-5" inside, although the actual height of my bath is 6' 2.5" as it is at the front which tapers down. As for larger models, we have no immediate plans, but will announce them when they come. I will keep your suggestion on file though and give it some thought.

Best, Chandler

Very nice trailer, Chandler!

Moderators, don't you think that there are enough pix for an addition to the albums?

Chandler,

Nice pics. Your table system looks very interesting. Makes the most out of the least. Your camper looks really nice. Hope you sell lots.

Thank you very much for posting the additional pictures, Chandler. I for one, like what I see. There is a front window in the exterior picture, where is it in the interior? What is the # 120v and 12v outlets and location, I see one by the side dinette. Where would a/c be located? Also, where is vent for the propane furnace, it is not shown on outside?

Just got off the phone with Chandler who was kind enough to answer some of my questions.
The picture first shown is one of the original trailers without the furnace nor hot water heater with the associated exterior vent covers your normally see. Both of these are on the curb side. The street side rear has batteries in a vented container and the fresh water tank- both behind the wheel well. This weight should lower the tongue weight as he specified. The a/c would be on street side, under the dinette seat.
There are 4x 120v outlets, 2 in kitchen area, one rear dinette, one side dinette. One exterior outlet. There is room for a small electric coffee maker to sit behind the sink.
There will be either a window or a vent in the bathroom or possibly both.
He seems eager to please and open to suggestions and will make the trailer as personal as he can. It is nice to be able to speak with the owner/builder of a product today, I have spoken with Jim Palmer of the EggCamper many times and was impressed with that ability and Chandler seems to be doing the same here. I look forward to watching this egg hatch here on the forum. Sorry Reace, I have not spoken with you yet!
Chandler also said that the belly band is where the top and bottom are attached via the bottom slipping inside the top 2-3" so that there is no chance of leakage as exists in other brands. Same set up is exhibited in the shower where the top slides over the bottom base.

Yep, of course you are right, CindyL. The problem is our Album software is no longer supported and we are moving things to the new Gallery software.

By the way, Chandler, that's a sweet looking trailer you've got there!

I assumed the "black tank" is the one attached to the port-a-potty.

the website trailer specs say "5 gal blackwater tank (for toilet)"
the slide show photo did not look 5 gallons to me so i figured it's still in the prototype phase with something else on the way.
