Tiny Trailer!

While we were staying at Gouldings RV park Monument Valley,
this tiny trailer pulled in.
It looked like a car pulling a phone booth!
By the time I grabbed my camera he'd already un-hitched.
We spoke to him briefly.
They were from Canada and said the trailer was always a crowd stopper.
He said it weighed 900 lbs with hitch weight of 90 lbs.
We was going to go back home and add a roof AC unit after this
trip in the desert.
I told him a roof AC was a mistake and suggested a tiny window
unit.
I don't think he "bought it".
His wife was inside fixing supper or I'd have taken a photo of
the open door.

What type of sleeping area did it offer? I am thinking sofa or dinette.

That's a neat little trailer.

I'm a member of T&TTT (Teardrops & Tiny Travel Trailers) and am in the process of building a Teardrop Trailer from scratch. You can view a few of the members trailer HERE .
Some of these are older trailers that have been refurbished. Most are hand-built(homemade) and some are factory built.

This is the one I'm building.

Found their website.
Taylor Coach > Home
Click the tiny word "models" at the top of the page to see
the different sizes available.
The one we saw was their smallest one.

Yup! Time to upgrade to an F-350 Dually Diesel! HAH!!


Man, that little thing packs quite a punch. Amazing what they can do in there. Not my style, but wow...pretty cool!

We might buy one of those when my oldest is 16...then she can haul it behind us and I won't have to put up with her teenaged attitude.

PS: is it wrong that I giggled outloud when I saw the pic?! So darn funny!!!!

You know what they say. Don't judge a book by it's cover.

Nice project Mike!

Do you have the hotrod to pull it too?
