New Concept Trailer

See many potential problems?

Granted, a couple good thoughts with it, but in reality......

Origami-like trailers with hydraulics, little motors and miniature canal systems teaming up to provide hours of grief at the most inconvenient moment.

Very cute, but... Ask any owner of trailers with slide outs: Reality is finding out how big a problem insane reliance on hydraulics becomes your annual maintenance nuisance. Nothing new about that concept.

My favorite are the ones that telescope out sideways instead of front and back, making them unusable at most north American campgrounds and RV parks.

That's OK, keep innovating. Every once in a great while someone comes up with a design that actually works and is practical.

I find the 'door' interesting ... or is it a door ... And, of course, there are other new and innovative campers.

My nephew spend a long weekend waiting for an RV tech to come and fix the slides on his ginourmous sticky. Had to climb over furniture inside to get to the bathroom.

On the other hand -- I can definitely understand the appeal. Our daughter is full timing in a Lance and with all those kids they just couldn't do it without the slideout. People want different things out of their trailers.

Oh well, some of us have to climb over people to get to the washroom.

We were parked next to a Trailmanor at Organ Pipe. I knew that it collapsed down but for the life of me I couldn't figure out how. I came home and watched the video. It's pretty clever also, expands into a huge amount of extra space without using the dreaded slides.
