Bob's trailer is really nice. I had the opportunity to see it in person and it's built well. Plus Bob is just a great guy.
Well, I met skersfan in Banning the other day to take a look at his trailer and stopped at Adventure Trailer's shop in Upland today to look at their Chaser trailer. I decided to go w/the Chaser and put a deposit on one for delivery on or about the 1st week of December.
It's very expensive but will have everything I could ever want or need in a trailer and, since AT is well-established in the business, I won't have to worry about getting support from them if any warranty or other issues arise in the future. AT trailers are also a recognized "marque" and are easily resaleable.
Looking forward to traveling again to Death Valley after I pick it up in December to try it out.
I agree that go out of hand really quickly, but I think they landed on an ok note after that thread was locked and agreed to disagree, basically.Considering the way the Adventure Trailers acted towards Bob in the Expedition Portal fiasco I will never give my money to any AT product. They build a fine trailer, there is no doubt about it, but their representation in that matter did not reflect well on them IMO.
As a total outsider, I can tell you what I learned during my recent trip.Wow what happened???
Cool thanks for the info.. I seem to remember something like that or maybe someone posted up somehting about that situation. Its familiar to me now that you told the story.. :bigthumb:As a total outsider, I can tell you what I learned during my recent trip.
AT claims that skersfan misrepresented himself as a potential customer while visiting AT's shop and "stole" the design for their Horizon trailer in order to build one of his own. After seeing both trailers, I can tell you that there are distinct similarities, but they are not identical. I don't know whether there is any "truth" to the allegation and I'm not taking "sides" either way.
I decided to go w/AT (and hope to follow through w/the purchase) because I wanted a Chaser (which is smaller than the Horizon & skersfan's trailers) and because I wanted to do business w/a company with a well established history in the business and a physical business location, each of which AT has but skersfan does not.
