"OIL CHANGE?" _FM 07-2009
Know its new taste and be loyal, you'll know when to change that oil.
Taste testing as the miles flow, souring as that acid grows.
And don't flirt with dirt or darkened oil, all the faster your engine will spoil.

Looks interesting. The wife and I are working on a teardrop trailer for camping to pull behind our wing. We are in the planning stages now and looking for a good well used 5x8 utility trailer to start the build.

DITTOES here but not quite a Teardrop, something a bit bigger yet lighter.

Teardrops are inherently heavy if you go normal. Foamies are a different animal.
So far Foamy builders haven't said how long they last so I can only assume it's not all that long.

Yeah ours will be a foamy type. I guess it depends on how well you build them and waterproof them. That is one of the many things we are researching.

I've talked to a few Foamy owners and the one thing they all said,...
The next one I build will have a basic structural frame. The pounding of the road compresses the foam and at the corners eventually get weak and cracks. (or close to that)
All land animals & mammals require a frame (bone or shell) and invertebrates live in water.
FOOD for thought.
