What's to apologize? I didn't know they were assembled here in Indiana, so I learned something too!

Addition

Addition:They also sell them in Elkhart, Indiana along a street called Cassopolis - it has RV dealerships one after another for several miles.

Yeah...we go there for dealer tours quite frequently. Elkhart is truly a depressing place. I have stayed there several times and have yet to see something beautiful in that town. It's an industrial powerhouse, but truly truly depressing.

I wrote to TAB back in June, 2004. This was their response:

Dear Forrest,

Thank you for your inquiry into our T@B "microlite" travel trailers. Your interest is appreciated.

T@B is derived from the German company Tabbert. Tabbert has been producing tear drop trailers for almost 75 years. Dutchmen Mfg has an exclusive agreement with Tabbert to produce the tear drop travel trailers here in the United States. However, we use the name as an acronym for Taking @merica Back....back to the simpler times...

Thanks again for the question. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Regards,
Christina Cárdenas

Thanks for the insight, Forrest!
Did I see someone say that they are selling them for ten grand? Holy cow!
They are small and lightweight. I have seen them behind PT Cruisers quite often because they really do enhance the "retro comes to the new millenium" look.

Ok, Ok, Ok... I wrote earlier that I haven´t seen one on the roads in Germany. I was blind!!!

Steffi and I saw a T@b today on our way back from the port in Bremerhaven, where we saw our Ambassador for the first time.

It was a aluminium T@b, but they are not shiny aren´t they?? If people will try to polish them, when they see how Airstream can look like??

All the best

Hello,

you don"t see much of the TAB Trailers on the road here in germany.

One reason is the price. It starts at about 7000 Euros .Without fridge, Without toilet and simple steel wheels.
In a good fitted version the price is growing up to over 10000 Euros.
For a small trailer .

The tabbert group see this trailer not as a travel-trailer-- more to replace a tent.

Another european trailer:

Called Y A T ( Young activity trailer )

Look here: http://www.knaus-yat.de

It"s the right color, it"s the right material but the wrong form.
