Specific Needs, Specific Solutions
The adaptation of a new or vintage vehicle from its original purpose to a new use is not as simple as changing the interior and adding a window or two. The factory design takes in to consideration specific uses, weights and weight distribution.
Travel trailers were designed to carry their own weight and perhaps another 300 to 600 pounds of gear and provisions. This combined weight is known as the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR.) If this design parameter is exceeded the consequences can range from an annoying swaying of the trailer while towing to loss of control or catastrophic failure of the chassis.
To convert a travel trailer to a mobile kitchen, for example, the unit could gain as much as 6000 or 8000 pounds. Without a complete analysis the structure and significant modifications to the chassis, axle, suspension, and tires a lot of time and expense can be wasted with dangerous results.
Timeless engages the services of a highly experienced, licensed Professional Engineer, to analyze the structure and chassis of our products when we perform conversion work to make certain that your coach will be on the road for the long haul.
Design & Engineering
Our staff designers and management as well as our contract Professional Engineers have decades of experience to ensure your personal use coach is built to meet and in most cases exceed the current standards of the Recreational Vehicle Industry including: ANSI 1192, National Fire Protection Association Code 1192, National Fuel Gas Code, National Electric Code 2007, Uniform Plumbing Code 2006, Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards, and most importantly -- your standards and specifications to meet your lifestyle.
With our years of rail and aviation experience we have learned how to work with code authorities to seamlessly build our commercial, food service, and medical trailers to meet the strictest standards of your local health inspector or the US FDA or Health Canada.
