You guys ever get a hold of JPK? I was going to PM him but figured the info would be more useful here......
It seems moby1 owners are far between, I sent them a message on their web site and no one answered it.
When I was trailer/teardrop shopping (maybe 6-8 weeks ago), I sent them an e-mail and they got back to me right away, including the sheet of option prices that I asked for.
1969 Bronco, 351W, ZF 5spd + Atlas
2001 Ford Excursion 4x4, 7.3L
2012 Appalachian Teardrops Krawler 459
I did PM JPK, so far no reply. Moby1 did send me the options list but nothing on how the cabin is constructed. Want to know if the cabin uses a metal tube frame or is it all wood construction. I guess I will have to fly to Utah to see first hand before I place an order.
I also talked to one of my buddies that lives in their neck of the woods, he has met the owner and seen them first hand. He said they are built solid and the owner pays attention to detail. He told me he used to build Custom Cabinets for high end houses... So the wood work is amazing....
On a side note I am also looking into a SoCal Tear Drop just to see which one may fit better. I got some e-mails from Canyon Country Tear Drops (One of SoCal's Regional Manufacturing Facilities that is closer to me) and they seem good to deal with also.

I'm interested to hear WHO has had failures. I second LexusAllTerrain's comment regarding documentation, show me the money!!
Maybe Moby1 will chime in on this.

I am the owner of Moby1. It is true there are not a lot of trailers out there as the XTR is a fairly new product for us, so ownership is a rather exclusive club at present. But let the truth be told that we have not had a failure! These comments (I am told) were posted by a disgruntled roommate of the user "bfgair" and not by the actual user.
Our suspension system is extremely robust and I will post photo's just as soon as the current build (for a certain Hollywood celeb) is completed. It should be at the powder coaters early next week and we'll post pics afterward. This project is the coolest thing we have done so far with some custom awnings built for us by Hannibal Safari S.A. (who we are now the North American importer and distributor for).
I appreciate the support from the members of this forum for having our backs and for the feedback and input on our products.
