hi folks. I'm.
Ian Baker the product specialist from American RV and today. I'm really excited to tell you about an all-new product we're carrying it is from manufacturer taxa outdoors this is the all-new Tiger Moth it's a whole new line of trailers they call an adventure trailers you can take it just about anywhere and coming in at just over twelve foot six and a half foot wide and nine hundred pounds almost any four-cylinder vehicle out there can tow it let's go ahead and take a closer look now. I know the tiger moth may not look like a traditional trailer and that's because it isn't, but it's perfect for the fisherman the backpacker is a mountain biker the adventurer or someone just looking to get a little closer to nature with the comfort of be able to sleep in four walls.
So, you don't have to worry about a bear attack or sleeping on the ground not only that, but it also makes an excellent utility trailer with several different points to hook up inside you can help friends move you can take its arts and crafts shows parks wherever you want to go let's talk a little bit about construction we'll start from the ground and work our way up. So, the tiger moth sits on 15 inch rugged tires giving it an impressive 12 inch ground clearance it also has a torsion axle it's rated for 1,500 pounds see how this comes in at 900 that means you have 600 pounds for your gear and your grub sitting on top of that is your powder coated galvanized steel frame then, if you take a look at the structure of this this is actually an aluminum superstructure it's laser-cut for precision cuts all the way around that way you know every tiger moth you get will fit perfectly and then the exterior right here is actually it's what they call a tine outer paint it's a polymer they use on the outside which gives this superior UV resistance as well as salt very resistant moving on to the features of the trailer the tiger moth has impressive storage both inside mount you take a look at the tongue here you will see that you have the steel toolbox on there which will easily fit all your tools or other gear you want to put in there spare tire mounted off to the side and you have your tongue mounted cargo rack right here, but it's the small attention to detail that really sets the tiger moth apart from a lot of the competition things like the fact you have tie-down points all throughout your cargo rack here and tie downs for none of your smelted racks. So, it's easy to tie those things in also you have a plug guard for your 7-way plug.
So, when you're not using your trailer you can make sure that your tip and your ends aren't getting corroded they even give you a caster wheel that mounts on the tongue jack to make the tiger moth easily maneuverable whether it's in your shed garage or even a lean-to Texa also thinks about the longevity of the trailer not only do they provide a powder coated rock guard up front they also give you powder coated fenders to help protect the size and you want to talk about quality these are no run-of-the-mill fender guards they can easily support my 200 pound frame making this a great easy step that way you can access everything up on the roof speaking of the roof let's talk about some of the options that are available up here right up front is a 200 pound cargo tray and as. I mentioned earlier this does have several high down points to easily attach things to the front of the tiger ball you also have a stool cargo rack system that sits in the center of the camper on the side is the optional road shower this is pressurized to create that shower and it's painted black with a thermometer on the outside that way you can tell the temperature of the water inside now on the fuel system of course that is a very versatile system very similar to what you would have on your vehicle you see here we have it equipped with a bike rack you can also put another storage bin up there, if you want kayaks anything that you can put on top of the vehicle you can put on top of the tiger moth including a tent during the day you will most likely have your doors open, but at night still get a great cross free because the tiger moth is equipped with three dual pane windows you have one on each side and another in the back these windows open up completely and have a screen on the bottom as well as your shade up top one of the things that make the tiger moth. So, unique and allow you to get closer to nature are the doors the side door here is hinged at the top opening up acting like a canopy the side door swings sideways giving you access to the outside kitchen the back of the tiger moth has the optional canopy awning the 48 inch slide-out camp kitchen and your jerrican to water the 48 inch pullout drawer has impressive storage underneath nice little table top here for your cooktop and a cutting board that when you remove reveals another large storage area for freshwater supply the tiger moth has a 5-gallon jerrican with an easy pour spout tiger moth has four light switches the first one which is a red night light up front the second is a white light at half light.
So, you can quickly do easy tasks without making it too bright the third one here is your overhead light and the fourth one is your rear light all of them being led the tiger moth is great for boondocking because these low power consumption of the LED lights and the fact that it is prepped for solar this unit is capable of drawn camping for up to seven days, if you take a look up front you will see it in the clipped with dual USB port a 12-volt power outlet voltage meter over to the side a battery disconnect as well as to standard plug in now all that is powered by your battery which is located under this cushion as well as lots of extra storage all the way around who lifts up this cushion you will also see storage located there and you can use the carabiner to clip on here in order to hold an open nice and easily for your boondocking you're out here for seven days, but where are you going to put all your stuff well as. I mentioned you have the two large storage compartments right up front, but what they have done is you of access points all over you have a ton of connection points right up here in the ceiling same thing with on whole stores that way you can use bungees you can use net you can have it go across the ceiling secure everything in definitely an innovative system because you'll be in and out of the RV a lot it does have a nice easy to clean floor the plenty of sitting room here on the couch and this also makes into a large bed when you pull this out just like.
