*not mine*

There is an rv company here in Ontario that went bankrupt some time ago that made fibreglass shell trailers similar to Bigfoots. Inventory is being sold off on Facebook marketplace.

Looks like a fun project to build your own from scratch. They have the shells, frames, axles, windows etc. Seems like everything but the interiors. Price seems cheap too.

Facebook link.

No wonder they went bankrupt, trying to sell black trailers.

Erwin Hymer Group was famous for their RoadTrek Class B vans on a Benz platform, not so much for their TTs. Interesting story, embezzlement from management took them under.

They could sell them as winter trailers, park it in the sun and keep warm.[emoticon]

Could that be carbon fiber ?
If yes it would cost an arm and a leg, but would be very light.

A black trailer with some stripes would be cool mom [emoticon]
I've seen some pictures of shells in primer grey as well. Pick whatever color you want.

That's the name. Couldn't find it before. Didn't know the story behind it. Thanks

Take the shell, put it on a pontoon boat and have a trailerable houseboat/camper.
I wish they were closer. I would buy one.
