    Off-Road Trailer Recommendations - Budget <= 20K

    The where are you taking it question is spot on. Another one is who will you be traveling with, as this can dictate some of your must have items in the trailer.

    Off-Road Trailer Recommendations - Budget <= 20K

    Construction wise I would look at the intech luna rover or pursue. All aluminum frame and structure. Most of the people who post on here who own them seem to have nothing but good things to say about them. I'm not sure anyone can say which one is the best. It's more of a question of which...

    Actual build cost vs markup on US built off road trailers/teardrops.

    Naters, I think I am leaning towards and intech trailer. Either a pursue or a Luna. Has the aluminum structure I like and also has a good A/C unit, plus there are several places within 2 hours of me that I can pick one up and get it serviced if need be.

    Actual build cost vs markup on US built off road trailers/teardrops.

    I don't have a price point or a profit percentage that I think is appropriate or fair. That's not something I was even putting any thought into originally. The original question was one inquiring about the large price differences between companies that basically use the same overall design...

    Maybe you ought to take a breath and read the very first post in the thread. You dont seem to answer any of the questions in the original question with anything pertinent. It wasn't too long after I asked that Moby 1 went under. I would question the price of my breakfast if I paid 50% up...

    Actual build cost vs markup on US built off road trailers/teardrops.

    If there are all of these costs factored into the final price then why do a large portion of these manufacturers want 5-10k deposits? To me it sounds like they are expecting the buyers to float their cost of doing business. I had my entire kitchen and bathrooms redone by small local companies...

    For many years I was the director of business development for a large electromagnetic compliance laboratory, so I think I have a firm grasp on marketing and sales.

    Actual build cost vs markup on US built off road trailers/teardrops.

    Most of these trailers use the same or similar designs and parts so R&D shouldn't be a per unit cost, unless of course we are talking about a bruder, VMI, or something similar.
