Featherlite Sport Utility RV (SURV) trailer. This all aluminum, riveted toy hauler trailer was bought new by me from an RV dealer in April 2009 and is a one owner RV. It may very well be the only rare Featherlite Toy Hauler in like new, original condition available for sale in the United States or anywhere. The great recession of 2007-2009 limited the production. Most of the remaining SURVs are not for sale or aren't still in factory built configuration. This one is!
Featherlite trailers are world famous for their strong construction, load carrying ability, and durability. Own a Featherlite and you will own the best.
We have washed, waxed, and detailed this trailer in the last 2 weeks and it looks great. We keep it in covered, secured storage with electricity on site to keep battery charged. We run a de-humidifier to keep humidity below 55% which is good for interior.

New Battery installed August 2019.
Samplex 600 watt pure sine wave 120 VAC inverter included.
Value added by these items is approximately $1,800 with no increase in price!

The roof is supported by insulated aluminum trusses. The floor is supported by aluminum I-beams.
This trailer is of monocoque design & is incredibly strong, needing no heavy steel frame like most trailers use.
The dual axles are Torqx rubber suspension axles, the best. The wheels are steel for strength to carry the heavy loads 7924 trailer can handle & come with chromed factory hub covers and trim rings.
