2006 Thor/Dutchman T@B Teardrop Trailer - $7000 (Lutrell, TN)

123456789

make / manufacturer: Thor/Dutchman
model name / number: T@B

2006 Thor/Dutchman T@B Teardrop Trailer in Mellow Yellow with Silver Alufiber exterior. This is NOT a clam shell (kitchen in the back). There is a kitchen inside!

Sorry, no air-conditioning (I get asked that a lot), but you can open the windows on every side and the vent with powered fan on top which helps keep the air nice and fresh inside. No actual bathroom, but there is a chem toilet included.

Originally the "L-shaped" interior (T16-L), but was remodeled to imitate the "Q" interior with matching custom birch upper cabinets in the rear and to increase to a KING-sized bed (original was slightly smaller than queen). 2-inch king-sized memory foam topper and cover included.

Includes both bed slats (smaller and lighter) as well as original collapsing dinette table. Easily seats 4 at dinette. Updated light fixtures with more accessible switches were added (originals are notoriously finicky). Cushions have custom slip covers over original upholstery.

Kitchen includes smart-tile back splash, 2 burner LP stove, 5-gallon fresh water sink, and 12V fridge. The L- shaped kitchen has a lot of counter space, storage, and the desirable opening front window.

Includes all the little extras: CD player/stereo with speakers, ceiling vent with reversible fan, screen door, and an LP furnace. Tucked in a lower cabinet is a portable chemical potty. Portable 12-gallon grey water and hose connect for "leave no trace". Cord and 220/110 plug for shore power. Custom window awning covers. Added USB and 12V outlets to run off battery for charging your phone or devices. Original awning included that follows the shape of the teardrop and attaches to the keder rail.

It's also solar powered! Prostar PS-15 (15 amp solar controller) and two Uni-Solar PVL-68 (68 Watt) flexible self-adhesive solar panels keep the deep cycle battery charged up and ready to go. Solar system requires little maintenance and can keep you going indefinitely with good sun exposure.

It's perfect for music festivals and state park camping. It gets big smiles and a lot of compliments wherever it goes.

Original unloaded vehicle weight was 1585lbs and GVWR is 1939lbs. Exterior Length is 15'6" and width is 6'7". Interior height is 5'9". Tows like a dream as it's lightweight and small profile. Can be towed by many small SUVs and some cars.

We bought this in 2018 from the original owners who did the impressive and unique modifications listed above and we put 4 new tires on it for our great cross country road trip from WA to TN (with many fun detours along the way) and we also installed a new battery last year. We used it most recently on Labor Day to go camping in the mountains of Virginia.

As this website shows, you can expect to pay up to $17,000 for a used T@B like this but without all the extra modifications the original owners made: http://www.rvweb.com/guides/manufacturers/dutchmen/models/2006_tb_fiberglass-1128979385560

The new T@B models consistently go for over $21,000. I guarantee you this T@B is 100% roadworthy and usable in its current condition, but we are listing it for just $7,000 at the low end of the used price range because for the following reasons: (you can see this reflected in the photos)

There is some damage to the base of the original hard plastic case that goes over the battery and the propane tank, but we have it firmly secured with bungee cords until it gets replaced. We haven’t bothered so far because it’s just aesthetics.

The plastic cover that goes over the ventilation fan in the ceiling broke, but we have it secured just fine with tape. Again, just aesthetics.

The wheel on the original tongue jack broke (our fault for forgetting to raise it up one time before we hit the road) so we bought a brand new tongue jack that works just fine, but it isn’t currently bolted onto the frame of the trailer, so you just have to be careful when you raise and lower it off the hitch because it’s just friction from the handle locking mechanism that holds it on. The trailer is actually light enough for me to just lift it off and on the hitch without even using the tongue jack, which is the main reason why I haven’t made the effort to bolt it on yet.

The original built in heating system isn’t currently working. When we drove cross country in February, we got by just fine using a small plug in heater, so we haven’t felt compelled to get the original heating system repaired yet. The electrical system otherwise works fine.

The above issues are the only things to my knowledge that make this trailer in less than like new condition. You are welcome to come check it out and do your own thorough inspection and ask us any other questions you have, but we are selling it in as is condition with no warranty. We do have current TN title, license plate, and TN registration.
