yes, we still have the Fireball 16T. I didn't know that the model included the word "Meteor".  We are thinking that we will probably be selling the trailer as an upgrade to a van conversion is considered for an upcoming cross country trip. I am just waiting to hear if any of the kids would be interested in having a vintage trailer.

It’s been a few years since you posted all this.  Still have it?  Yours is only the second Meteor I’ve seen with the painted stripe: most have the standard ‘arrow’ on the sides...and two converging triangles on the rear.   Just found a 16T in Missouri last Fall.   Nice layout.   Fireball still my favorite canned ham.

nice...those weight distributor bars should be parallel to the frame.  I got a tutorial link on the GORV main page to assist you.
