The T@G, the smaller cousin to the T@B.

Postby mikeschn » Mon Dec 15, 2008 4:10 pm

Terry and Gordie told me about the T@G, the smaller cousin to the T@B. Terry had the photos and brochure sent to me so I could post them on the forum.

Here they are. What do you think?

Here's the brochure

P.S. Let me know if the photos are too big.

I love the EXIT sign over the door.

If Mrs. Dog and I had one, we'd constantly be thinking of improvements. If you weren't of the saw and hammer, it might be a good idea...

Teardrop trailers have a rich heritage in North America. They started the modern
RV industry. But as tow vehicles got larger, so did RV’s.
Times are different now. It’s time to return to our roots...


Although the various new offerings obviously predate the economic collapse, the RV industry seems to be taking note that not everybody has a diesel dually to tow their trailer.

It looks nice in my opinion but them handles in front and back dont seem to fit. They look out of place. Id toss them instantly. Other than sort of cool.

I like the wheels and fenders. ;)

Now how much do they sell for?

Cute :thumbsup: No galley :( Maybe they need to make a clam shell T@G with a galley. :thinking:

Overall...nice to see another manufactured teardrop trailer.

I'm guessing since it is fairly plain, has what looks to be a way oversized frame, no galley, minimal inside storage and those silly handles on the corners it's probably way over priced! 8) 8)

We were at the Louisville show and seen the T@G and in all honestly we thought that it blew away the Wazat which was also there. Nice package all around. Still think ours are better though :D :D

There's an exit sign above both doors! Like you'd forget how to get out of one. Those handles on the back, what are those for? They don't make sense on the T@b either. Lack of a galley makes me wonder where you'd put your cooler and food. I kinda like the T@b clamshell, but this one after looking at it more, doesn't do much for me.

I agree with you Rich, oversized frame. Them handles dont fit it neither.

It's a nice color on the outside. There I said something nice about it. I think the designers fell way short on this one.

Their entry into the market is quite a commentary on the burgeoning teardrop community!!

Other than color and those silly handles it's not distinctive, as teardrops go. Looks like re-badged Little Guy.

But any teardrop is distinctive so the t@g would certainly draw attention on the road or in any campground.


How much?

Thanks for the info, Mike!

RV makers lighten up with new products

By ROGER SCHNEIDER

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — As American car owners switch out their gas-guzzlers for smaller vehicles, many recreational vehicle companies are creating lighter weight products that can be towed by those smaller cars.
