Carbon fiber

Of course they want to ride the Green issue so the last paragraph mentioned saving the environment.If they want to save the environment, DONT build it.

Yeah. Nothing environmental about it really. I don't see why they say there is. You can use glass or carbon. It's all how you build it that makes it light or not. Solar panels? I have those too on a 2006 truck camper. Everything but the air conditioner runs off them. All black? Think of how much energy it'll take to cool that thing. How much energy to run the reverse osmosis water system?

Not environmental at all.

Not a bad looking trailer but I agree about the color, too hard to cool. The lithium ion batteries are pretty neat.

Carbon fiber sounds like a way to charge more money.

The carbon fiber construction keeps the trailer light, and thus easier to tow.


Aaaaa no, not really. FG like CFF is very light. CFF is stronger; that's why they use it in race cars. FG breaks very easy. CFF not so much. So if you want to bump into things with your trailer the CFF would be a good option to buy! [emoticon]

What does make a difference in towing is aero. Well would you look at that! Bike racks and lights and a dozen other things sticking out in the air! [emoticon]

Why no mention of MSRP? [emoticon]

Carbon fiber is light and strong. Color can be adjusted with a paint sprayer.

But I wonder about the price.. What I can not afford I can not buy.

I would like to see a light weight Memory Plastic. YOu get a wrinkle in it you heat it up in a paint drying booth and..... It restores itself.


Home is where I park it.

"Nine lithium-ion batteries store up to 1,000 kilowatts absorbed by the roof-mounted solar panels."

I don't think so. Somebody doesn't know what 'kilo' means.
