if you sent it to the microlite trailer folks I can tell you they are not good with emails. I have experienced that first hand and I think I commented on it earlier. The dealer in Michigan is affiliated with them more directly (I think he is a part of their organization) and he appears to be more modern on the use of email. They will however take a phone call and are really great folks. When I got mine my dealer said they were selling them as fast as they could build them and they are a small family company whose focus was on building them and getting them out the door.

I have no dog in the fight other then I love mine. It is a great quality product.

So I got an RV with a 30 amp plug and a trailer now with a 30 amp plug... Can't remember, but most campgrounds only have one 30 amp right? Or one 50 amp. Or one 50 and one 30. Not sure if I ever saw two 30 amp...

I saw a Y adapter plug that takes two 30 amp and combines them into a 50 amp. It costs like $110... for a plug...

Options?

I was even thinking of just using my 30 amp to 15 amp adapter for the trailer since it doesn't use much electricity anyway.

It's not recommended, but you can have an electrician make a 30A Y. Neither of your CURRENT RVs are going to be pulling more than 15A each at any one time. There are RVs out there with two AC units and a 30A plug.

All that said, the kosher way is the 50A Y. But that means you have to have a 50A service, which doesn't always exist. I'd personally have no problem doing he 30A Y in your setup. But I'm not an electrician nor a lawyer. YMMV

What is the FLA of your trailer? Do you have an outdoor plug on the RV that is rated for 15A?
You could make a standard 120V plug adapter and plug your trailer into the RV.

Currently making one-offs, I think. Coolest trailers at last weekend's sportsmen's show by a far sight.

"FLA"?

Regardless, I don't think I have an outside plug on the RV... good idea though.

That's what I was thinking too. Easy to do.

Our little Home-made Toy Hauler/Camper Hybred

I'm ready to update MY end of this thread...

remember my post #1256???...well, we've now got our starting point...



Look familiar Mr. Fisherman???

I was really looking for a 12 footer...but after driving 5 hours to check this one out, and realizing that it was only 10', and it WAS a pretty decient price...I grabbed it.
(It wouldda been nicer with that extra 2'.....but it just felt right.)
Thanx OregonCoast!!


So once I finish up my hot-rod project this spring...the work begins. Until then, I'm already using it as it is.

I miss that trailer. It is pretty handy. The bar across the front and the l channel along either wall makes securing your loads a breeze and the low load heights is sweet for heavy items. I hope you get plenty of use out of it.

I don't remember the details, but it's probably 30-40 pages back in this thread already. IIRC, it's a prototype that never made production.

I could see it being just a prototype. It looks one part kind of cool, one part Top Gear, "Have the boys build an RV."
