Anyone see this?

Here is a new trailer by the people who make the T@B. It reminds me of the 13' Playmor that Roger posted.

The specs say it's only 2121 lbs.

Now THAT's what the new Sport model should have been like. More windows, looks better finished inside, novel concepts (I like the cassette toilet idea), even the blue tank is fine with me (I use one anyway currently). Wonder where the kitchen sink flows too - I guess you can't use on the run unless you dump grey water?

I like that they weight EACH one and state the REAL weight on the weigh tag on the trailer. All trailers should have this!

Torsen axles (with NO SHOCKS! - Horrors!), cute exterior colors - I think this is more mainstream than the T@b.
Probably be a hit if it's priced right.

The Base Camp doesn't have shocks either, and it's a bit heavier (2500 or 3000 lbs max depending on model). They indicate that the grey water is plumbed for a blue boy, I wonder if they did that with a stinky slinky sized hose or a garden hose like the Base Camp...

Nice! It's so open and airy inside, but it still gets in all the stuff you need. Marc's right on, that's what the new Sport models should have been like!

Any news yet on cost? Looks like a great little trailer for quick getaways. I wonder how well made (AKA-leak proof, tight finish work) it is. ~G

The picture shows a slinky hose. You can see it in the gallery, second row down all the way to the right.

Still built for midgets... the interior height is 5'9" which is great for my 5'-2" wife but a pain in the neck for a 6'-2" me They are borrowing the design from some of the European caravans. I hope it sells well for them

You are right Aaron, it does look very European. If it's priced right it may get a lot of the younger crowd more interested in camping. Interesting color schemes.

I like the fact you can tow it with a Tacoma or Frontier or something similar. There was a time when this would have fit us to a "T".
