    Trail Marker Up and Out with Wet Bath by Rollingstar MFGing

    We went and looked at the TM in April of 2021 and really liked it. Should have ordered that day. Because soon after they stopped taking orders. They said there was a queue (as we had actually given them a complete order form and tried to give a deposit) but would not tell us anything about where...

    Subaru owners: Let's see your expedition rigs!

    The whole thing only weighs 102lb empty. If we needed the spare we would just lift it out. Was a compromise for simplicity. And to keep the weight down.

    Aluminum WeeRoll Camper Trailer [thread moved]

    We took it to a CAT Scale on Saturday and have it at 1840lb (stock/empty). Which makes sense of the tongue weight I had taken at 245lb. A stock Silver Moon is advertised at 1180lb. Ours is 3" wider and 6" taller. We had them add two relatively small interior partitions and provided Tern...

    Subaru owners: Let's see your expedition rigs!

    Good eye. Half our kit was probably for the dog. I suppose fur babies are as demanding and accessorised as skin babies.

    Aluminum WeeRoll Camper Trailer [thread moved]

    We actually towed it for the first time behind the Outback today. Took it to a CAT Scale for a weight. Felt good at the normal grandpa speeds I drive at. Will use a lot of gas. But I expected that. You ever happen to weigh your trailer? Ours is *significantly* heavier than WeeRoll claims.

    Subaru owners: Let's see your expedition rigs!

    After getting back from almost a year working abroad, we decided to take our new 2020 Outback on a 10,000 mile trip around the US in early 2021. We were lucky to be in NZ during the worst of CV19. I built an insert for the back that had two drawers, one for food and one for cooking supplies...

    Aluminum WeeRoll Camper Trailer [thread moved]

    That makes sense. I am tempted to try making a composite "nose cone" for the trailer to see how that effects things. I have work with people who can model that shape for me ahead of time and happen to have a lot of carbon cloth laying around. All that is left is locating the motivation! I will...

    Aluminum WeeRoll Camper Trailer [thread moved]

    This weekend I am picking up a similar WeeRoll we had built. Intending on towing (slowly) with my Outback rated at 2700lb. We are expecting to go slowly and get bad mileage. What is your model of RAV4 rated for? Yours could be a fun project for someone.

    Have not come across anyone else building remotely like what these two are doing. There is a market. I work in the marine industry (racing sailboats) and know plenty of boat builders looking for work. I am tempted to build our own. Plus a home-built custom trailer is not going to have a very...

    TM are very nice people. Went last year for a visit. Not a bad trip from here in RI. Still waiting to hear back from Total Composites on timeline and pricing. The demo unit they have is all finished and for sale. It looks super nice and well done. But we really like the lifting bed and wet...

    Sounds really nice. Hope your visit went well? I finally got a message back from Sarah Jo today. They are pushing new orders again. Back to "spring" for another assessment. We may need to look more seriously at the TC options, lest we end up waiting years for a trailer.

    Is yours being built to the same spec as the first one they did? We are looking at a few changes just to keep it as light as possible. No AC, no fridge, smaller tongue box, lithium, etc. Our tow vehicle is a Subaru Outback and I am aiming for 2000lb empty.

    Glad to hear yours is ticking along. I saw the Rollingstar FB page has been updated. Having read a bunch of your posts, I am in a similar situation. Surprising how few options are in this market space. I have been thinking about getting a Total Composites trailer and finishing it myself. We...

    I read that you have a Trailmarker on order? I nearly ordered one (Up&Out House - same as you) in April and unfortunately did not pull the trigger. Now it seems they have gone pretty silent. Have not managed to get ahold of Sarah Jo via email or phone. Hoping it only means they are overwhelmed...
