    Issues with Inka Outdoors

    If he filed for bankruptcy it's highly unlikely that anyone will see a dime of their money returned. You can file a civil suit but it's a royal pain to sue through the bankruptcy courts and it costs twice as much most times Criminal charges will never be filed as it turns into a mess most DA...

    If you plan on buying a manufactured trailer there are a few things you need to know

    I know it's hard to believe but the Chinese can make a decent product if the quality control and engineering is monitored and enforced firmly. The problem is most of the manufacturers over there simply buy someone else's product and copy it cosmetically and don't understand the engineering...

    If you plan on buying a manufactured trailer there are a few things you need to know

    That's just it when you take even the most expensive trailers apart most of them are built exactly the same way as the cheap ones. It not only takes a wise consumer market but a manufacturer that actually cares about quality and makes changes accordingly. So far I've found one that I've worked...

    If you plan on buying a manufactured trailer there are a few things you need to know

    They don't enforce testing that well but it's a product liability / insurance thing. If it breaks and there's a lawsuit you'll get screwed if you don't have the paperwork to show you did it. Kevin J. - Who's hitch are you looking at?

    Hard-sided adventure travel trailers in the US?

    Probably a Chinese manufacturer will get it. They are all looking to get in to the AU/US market and what easier way than to buy an existing name.

    If you plan on buying a manufactured trailer there are a few things you need to know

    The lemon laws do actually apply in most states as RVs are considered a vehicle by law. You have to find a lawyer who is willing to push that point. Check here also http://www.ohiolemonlaw.com/lemon-laws/vehicle-type/rv/find-yo/ When you buy a trailer / RV you need to make sure you read the...

    Importing a trailer into the U.S.

    A lot of DMV offices will not accept a trailer that they can tell has been mass produced as a "homebuilt" unit

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

    You have a few things that come into play building a trailer as a low production company. Labor costs = Usually 100-200 hours @ $25-30/hr. That's probably being conservative. Material costs = Small low volume companies pay anywhere from 10-20% more for materials than the high volume guys do...
