Looks like a copy of one of Gulfstream's Vista Cruisers.  Nice floor plan, but far from the old concept of the 171.

I have not seen one. Been awhile since I've been to a dealer. I wonder how big you have to get before you stop calling it an Ultra-Lite. This trailer is like 25 feet long and weighs in at around 4600. Is it dual axles?

More like 6485 lbs. UVW is 4574 lbs and a CCC of 1911 lbs. That is definitely a middle weight trailer.
I would imagine it's two-axle; it also looks like the tires/wheels are tucked in under the body.

Yes, the pictures I saw on Facebook are that it is indeed a dual-axle trailer.

There was a RV ad from a Florida dealer with picture. The trailer was single axle. This trailer is almost 11 feet tall. There does not seem to be any availability in my area, but I'm not interested.

GlueGuy, +1, I wouldn't call this an UltraLite. Still looking for a pic. I saw an add for a 202, but not sure it was a real pic of trailer.

The pictures Travis posted on Facebook are of an actual built model (possibly prototype, but he said they were in production). The RP202 definitely has a double-axle.

Thanks SH, I wouldn't buy a 25 footer with a single axle.

It does defeat the purpose of the reason most people buy an R-Pod in the first place.  They're smaller, lighter and more nimble.  This is none of those, it is just your run of the mill average travel trailer.
