The 10' Comet is a
re-make of the 1947 Trailer for Two from Mechanix Illustrated. It is a fully-appointed teardrop
with all the amenities that you'd expect from an upper-tier trailer.
Fully insulated walls, floor and ceiling, Two doors with operable windows,
roof fan and vent, off road suspension, complete lighting system, a galley that includes a built-in
icebox, electric water system with 12-gallon tank, roll-out stove, a space
for a 4-seater picnic table and benches (with umbrella), plenty of food
and utensil storage, all enclosed in heirloom-quality cabinets that put
the ones in your kitchen to shame.
The 10' Comet tows like a dream.
No swaying or jackknifing for this gentleman. The extended tongue
makes backing easy, and has high-clearance so you can get to the remote
places you want to camp. Gusts from semi-
trucks pass harmlessly over its aerodynamic shape, and you can laugh at
the windiest days. No need for trailer brakes or load distributing
hitches either. Just be ready for lots of "oohs" and
"ahhs" from envious admirers!
Say "goodbye" to crowded campgrounds. Just
pull off a forest road and park somewhere. The self-contained
kitchen is ready to cook up a quick meal anywhere. You can
read a while late in the evening, then fall asleep in the warm, soft
and secure bed with the stars peeking through the roof vent.
In the morning, just close the hatch and drive off to the next spot!
To top it off, a
hatch in the floor lifts up to fit an
electric chemical toilet for handy
"pit stops" while traveling. No more trying to find a gas
The interior cabin is appointed with rich
cabinetry that shows off your craftsman's touch.
The galley is equipped
with the built-in Icebox, a slide-out propane stove, and an
electric water spigot fed by a 12 gallon hidden tank.
