Senior Management and I have had a busy couple of weeks. We bought a new house, moved to it, and the day after moving I had a nose surgery. The best news is that when we moved the jPod to the new house, it went really smoothly. I hardly knew it was behind the Jeep. This is great news. It is the first pull of the trailer since it had a body.
The new garage has a ton more space than the previous version so “jPod time” will be possible even when the snow falls in a couple of weeks.
A future tear drop builder friend sent me a picture of a tear that is on display locally (Coeur d’Alene, ID). I wasn’t satisfied with just the photo so I went and checked it out in person. It is built by “Mary Janes Farm”.
It is a very simple tear. Only the fan has electricity. The battery is not vented to the outside & isn’t gel. It looks like the craftsmanship is ok but not spectacular. It has a solid aluminum floor & no insulation of any kind (hard on the northwest camper). It is a nice classic “American Apple Pie” sort of style tear. It is quite attractive.
Here are a few shots & a video clip.
A member of the michenchell forum found who manufactures this trailer. It is a Retro Traveler trailer. Actually, it is much cheaper if purchased directly from Retro Traveler.
Until Next time!
