Another aluminum Thor product

Just received my Trailer Life and there is an ad by Dutchmen for a modernized aluminum teardrop trailer with extruded ABS trim in bright colors. The ad showed bright orange trim. Ad says about 1200#, but no idea whether that is empty or gross weight. They call it a "microlite" trailer. I love the streamlined ABS gas bottle cover.

The trailer features a dinette/queen bed, an ice box, and a gas stove. It even has grab handles so that it can be manhandled and a parking brake.

I tried a Google search. No luck. Tom Raper has a Microlite category, but there is nothing in it.

It can be seen on the Dutchmen site: http://www2.thorindustries.com/rv/dutchmen/

On the menu in the upper left, go down to the item labeled T@B (2004). In the photo it looks like the trim might be wood grain.

Cute, ain't it.

Wood grain?

I don't think so. The side trim does appear to have a textured surface, though, like a series of raised squares. Hard to tell from that photo.

I realize now that I searched for T&B instead of T@B. That's why Google missed it.

I would have loved this one back in the days when I took my little popup to the soaring field on weekends. This thing is really cool!

I almost bought/built a teardrop before I 'discovered' Airstreams. That looks a lot like one I saw that was built in Europe. Very cool.

Thor doesn't build those T@B trailers.
They are made by Tabbert in Germany.
