Retro-style trailers don't look like standard RVs and this look is popular with some buyers. The Washington Post, writing about the 2009 Lousiville trade show said the Cikira retro look was popular because the trailers "have a certain charm that's giving them the exciting visual appeal many people desire. A retro RV actually looks good behind your favorite midsize SUV, crossover or other tow vehicle of choice."
"The 160 FD model offers practical living in a 16-foot length. A mostly white exterior, accented by minimal graphics, keeps the Retro-Lite clean looking. Rounded front and aft walls, in keeping with the early 1950s trailer style, also enhance aerodynamics for improved towing. The 16-foot unit has a 3,830-pound
and weighs about 1,830 pounds dry, so you have a range of towing options." We show 3 pictures of the simple Retro-Lite interior below:
