The tension between what is good enough and what is beyond that creates the space for character to become our work.

Wow , TM is pretty cool !!!!
Remember when they promised us flying cars ... what a silly idea!!! Imagine a flying car full of kiddies , driven by the average soccer Mom who can drive , talk on the cell phone and put makeup on , watch a chick flick on the overhead video ,and eat bon bons all at the same time ....Sounds as dangerous as the real thing eh ? No offense to the ladies , but we have seen how you drive under those conditions.... fly , I think NOT!!!!! ....hahahahahahahahahah I'm in trouble now !!! :roll:

I think behind the right tow rig, that trailer would look great. Of course, not for the conservative crowd. Me, I like it, especially if one wanted to get away from the traditional design.

Fiberglass shell perhaps? Assisted lift on the doors.


Nice Job. :thumbsup:

These trailers do turn up on eBay every so often, which is where these photos were from:

This is also George Thornton's mystery trailer #5 and he gives some info.

The RV manufacturer's list says 1990 was the last year of production.

That's all I've got.
