I would go with the bottom right design. With today's fuel prices I Would look for something aerodynamic , The oval front gives it a classy older look and will save fuel .The back talks the story of modern unique todays trailer, you get a bit of both worlds. :-)). T.M. Hope it all works out buddy.

This one is also produced in very small numbers. Modern Retro

Comment by Keith LaCanfora on July 23, 2013 at 1:08pm

From my experience it's a niche market. Most dealers won't stock that type of product. I have seen retro, euro, toy haulers, even futuristic big and small come and go. This beat me in best of show a few years ago and has a sticker price of $70,000! Yikes.. You could purchase two of mine plus two used trucks plus pay for your camping for a few years for the price of just this one!! LOL This unit is no longer in production. Get's tough to find something that sticks.

We don't have grandkids so sleeping 2 is very comfortable for us, but we don't know what percentage of buyers for bumper pull trailers this size want to sleep 2 plus 2.


Keith, I wonder what percentage of buyers would also be Wowed by a hot looking "retro" trailer this size, i.e. like the light weight Boles(?) vs modern, and to me, boxy looking modern one?  Any studies  or sales figures on that?

It will be interesting to see what you wind up with!

Thanks guys, all great ideas. I'm not liking the height. Project started as someone telling me I couldn't fit a full size bath in a small unit. I did it one better by adding the ramp. This would keep the unit from being too tall but only sleep two. So I added the loft. May go back to just small unit? I like hitch heavy, stabilizing bars help towing but a light hitch you can't fix! :). I'm 11' 6" tall and still need to add the A/C. Do you think the Floorplan would be just as functional without the loft?

Looking pretty interesting!

Comment by Ron Pulliam on July 22, 2013 at 7:27pm

Thr round top appeals to me too. Any way you could make the front with a vertical curved wrap?  The skin geometry gets a little more complicated, but could be estimated pretty closely using projections (if you're a drafter)

Would be nice to have a couple of 80 watt PV panels on the roof with a slide out bin in the rear or somewhere in the underside, for 2 golf cart type batteries. That would power a basic 12v system for led cabin lights and so on. Could have a Todd or Tripp Lite charger to keep them topped off while plugged in.
