WOWZA! Beautiful execution all around.

I live in Texas and there are lots of armadillos out and about, so love the name as well as the graphic on he front of the trailer. Looks like dinette in front and dinette/sleeping area in back, but no bathroom, correct?

I puzzled why they were calling these "new Bolers" in the thread title... when they are being built using (I now presume) Lil Bigfoot molds. The history of molded fiberglass manufacturing seems to be filled with these odd twists and turns.

Perhaps if their custom line succeeds, Armadillo will some day make a standard model for the broader market. Probably won't have that cool rear storage drawer, though!

Hi: Jon in AZ... It was my understanding that Bigfoot took over Boler molds and modernized them to build the Lil Bigfoot in the 80-90 era. This seems a natural progression then... but always happens west of the Rockies!!!

Ah... the plot thickens. Thanks for the clarification. The fecundity of the original Boler design is amazing! This one is definitely upwardly mobile...

What keeps dirt and water out of the box? I can see the lid, but what seals it?
Can you take this trailer off paved roads with the reduced clearance?
