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.
