There's one listed on Craigslist for sale:

I've never seen like this one before, so I thought I'd repost the pictures here.

It is listed as a Noman tent trailer, but I zoom in on the pictures, it sure looks like it says "NOMAD"

My parents used to camp with a Nomad waaaay back when I was a teenager. Looks to be the same style. Now that's going back a good 50 some years, so thanks for bringing the old memory up to date.

Wouldn't be the first case of a typo on Craigslist. When I found my Compact on Craigslist, it was listed as a Compac, or something silly like that. The gal was selling it for her dad and had NO IDEA what she had... So it pays to chase down what might seem wrong, lame, or silly at first... If somebody goes to check it out, looks inside, buys it, etc, I'm sure I'm not the only one who would LOVE to see what the interior looks like! SO TAKE PICS! hehe

OMG! I saw one of these on the RV special called "Tin Can Tourist"! It was the coolest thing! I dont think they showed the inside of the trailer b/c they were focused on how the boat removes and then showed the guy row it out for fishing on the little pond they were all camped on. How cool is that!!! I thought I'd never see another one of those.

Thanks for sharing!

I remember these from my youth and if I am not mistaken one could use the boat and tow the trailer, the bottom of the trailer molded fiberglass, and obviously sealed, with the boat and take it to a boat only accessed camping spot. I remember being shown one of these. Canvas was green and orange if I remember correctly. I wish the memory was better but it was a long time ago.
