    Sure like your new toy hauler, good to go smaller. We had an 18' Work and Play, and it was always big enough when the bikes were out. We liked the huge one room set up without built ins.

    Hope you enjoy your new trailer.

    What do people think of those "Aliners" - solid pop up trailers built by Columbia Northwest? I saw one today when I went for a ride up toward Squamish today. The owners popped it up in around 2 minutes, when they stopped in Porteau Cover and had their lunch. I was quite impressed.

    Is it sort of like an attic, can only stand upright in the center? Or most of the middle area?

    More what I would call a solid wall tent trailer.

    I am eyeballing a 2005 Dodge Sprinter 2500 with 280k miles. The guy wants $8000. He is about $4000 off on his price. What do you guys think?

    It's a small camper thread. I want to make a camper out of it.

    Trust me, Van thread.


    This is for Light (Sprinter isn't), Little (Sprinter isn't), Campers (A Sprinter motor home isn't a camper).

    :lol3


    Here, Sprinters have been a hot topic lately... http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=434542

    I've been going back and forth on what would be best for me, and enjoy both threads.

    I love Vans, but don't need another vehicle or want to get rid of any of the ones that I have now.

    I have an old Blazer that could haul a decent size toy hauler, but we have been getting spoiled driving the Colorado on longer trips. So I have been looking at the small tent trailer toy haulers. I like them, but the prices have been a bit to high for my liking.

    This one is the cheapest one that I've found so far, but still think the price is to high for it's age, and the "minor water damage" around the ceiling fan.

    Found this up in the Rockies sub-forum. Sounds like they may be having supplier issues, but Jurgen is very intriqued. Very.

    I could really see one of these in the back of my pick-up with a future smaller Dual Sport (450ish) inside. :deal

    But, alas...

    Man those are sweet trailers. I saw one locally and drooled all over it. Just wish they were not so Pricey. Guess you get what you pay for, like usual.

    Production of the Teal Camper is currently on hold.
    In a disturbing move on July 18, our panel molding supplier determined that they were going to
    concentrate on large corporate projects only and our project didn't qualify.
    Teal Camper production is currently on hold until a new supplier is located.
    We are not taking deposits at this time, but if you are interested in purchasing a Teal Camper you can email your request.



    Ah shit, I was just watching those videos, that's a hell of an idea.

    Yeah, but 6g's (w/o trailer) seems like alot for something held together with a ratchet strap.
