Cool looking trailer. It seems lots of great things were created, and hatched, in 1957.

I checked up on those when I started deer hunting.
I like the idea of a camper that can be used on a
already existing trailer. Double duty for the trailer.

Nope Donna, not quite the same thing. Although the Teal is lightweight and all, it doesn't fold down.

I would feel hesitant to tow a Teal through a rainstorm, with all those seams. Not the least of which is at the floor of the utility trailer it's mounted on.

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You Donna. I have been looking for this topic, cause I have wanted to go check it out. But things went side ways with Rod about that time and I lost the topic. Have thought about it many times and was going to ask, to see if anyone could think of what I was talking about. Now I can finally go see this place. Let you know what I find!
