Roothawg - I started a gallery with some pictures this should be the link:

- Photo Gallery

Comparing our trailers I think they are different companies, but not much info out there.

Lori, they are made by the same company. Mine is also an Avalair from Baroda, Michigan. As far as the story about the Avalair being made for 2 years, I think they were manufactured for about 10 years. I am still searching for information on the company though.

Oh I didn't realize that your trailer was made in Baroda too, I was thinking it was made in Texas but see that's just where you purchased it. Interesting....then they must be the same company. They changed the look a fair amount between whatever model mine is and the Mark II. Keep me posted if you find anymore out about them!

I contacted the Baroda Michigan Chamber of Commerce and they are researching the Avalair records. I wouldn't think it would be that hard, but apparently someone must have asked before, because she knew exactly what I was talking about. It appears to be a town of approx. 800-900 people.

Baroda is a very small little town in Southwest Michigan. 800 - 900 people is about right. It's a blink and you'll miss it kinda place. There used to be a plethora of tool & dye shops there, but they're going extinct. Our friends owned an Avalair. Sold it a few years ago. I know they contacted the Chamber of Commerce when they first bought it. Bardoa is not far from Benton Harbor, which is where Avion was built. Growing up in that area, it was not unusual to see silver trailers.

We just got back from our maiden voyage. Roughly 3400 miles and 8 states. I am trying to upload pics as I go.

I sure have been following along. Stop by the Cody Ford Dealer and say hello to my Uncle Ed for me...
If you want to do some awesome boon docking, head West toward Yellowstone and look along the road on the left after going past the lake. There are many river side camp sites and they are FREE...

I would have stayed at the Buffalo Bill reservoir, but I didn't have a generator and it was pretty warm.
