Hello!

I'd like to let you guys know that Polydrop trailer is about to launch!
Our trailer only weighs 750lbs with gullwing doors on both sides, Timbren independent suspension, hydraulic disc brakes, and full aluminum frame.
One of the most significant facts of our trailer is the insulation, the thickest point is over 8" of rigid foam.
It's designed to let the user feel cozy in harsh weather condition.

Please visit our website!

Cheers,
K.

Doors seem too forward, but I guess depending on door width. How far from the front of the trailer to back of the door? What type of heater do you use?

I'm trying to understand the "why" for all those unusual angled panels that make up the exterior profile.
From what I understand the stealth bomber has confusing angles to avoid dection.
I like your brake set up :thumbsup: .
Good luck with your venture, :D Danny

*My home-built 4x8 squareback has doors far forward, too, but my feet point towards the nose of the trailer when I sleep, not rearward as in the Polydrop, or other std. teardrops & TTT's. My doors are also shorter and narrower than on the Polydrop, and my design errors make it seem even smaller.

* I put in an overhead shelf, with stereo & speakers, and an 11" Honeywell fan (suspended underneath, in the center), mounted full-width between the doorframes. It only sits 4" above the door tops, so entry/exit are done head-first/feet-first. Wasn't a problem when I was younger, but I've had to add overhead assists to help me exit, now that I'm nearly 70.

ad-hoc, as needed, installation of interior shelves and features after outside shell was completed, made this a handyman's, not a craftsman's trailer!

*With even larger doors, or if used by younger, more flexible owners, the Polydrop's gullwing doors seem to offer lots of room for getting in/out, especially without the confining overhead shelf that is in my TTT. I would still prefer to have my sleeping position reversed from in the picture, and exit that way.

*I do like the profile, build materials, and the interior & kitchenette design, but it's way beyond my price range; I wish I'd built my TTT with those internal cubbyholes and niches, instead of adding on obtrusive overhead shelves inside (2), plus one over my feet (flexible, with swing-up function), and actually had room for the fancy-cut rear cabinetry. Nice!

What is the outer material? Fiberglass?

The brochure on the website says "aluminum skin".
