Donna,

I get how they are made with four shells. That's why I was wondering about Floyd's comment that Burro and Trillium's double hulled trailers weigh the same as the single hulled ones. How can that be?

Trillium has fiberglass cabinetry, like Scamp, Casita, etc. but never built a double-hull.

Burro is double-hull, but also never built a single hull trailer. The Companion, which looks nearly identical to the Burro and IS a single hull trailer has wood cabinets and was built by a totally different company.

Weight for all these trailers is not so much in the fiberglass, but windows, appliances, air conditioners... etc., etc. It's one of the reasons the Compacts (and Hunter cousins) are among the lightest of the bunch. It's also because they're often the most simple.
