Neat, maybe a Mod can add it to the "TRAILER ALBUMS" I have never seen it before.

Interesting. I never knew Triple E made any other FG than the Surf Side.

There is a corporate history video available on Triple E's website Media The beginning part is interesting and it briefly shows the Surf Side brochure, but nothing about the Leocraft trailer. I didn't know that they had also been the victim of a factory fire. I wonder if the mold was lost then?

Looks like a nice size trailer. Do you think it is a 15' Cam?

Are you going to talk the owner into selling

ETA: Triple E is in Manitoba, so maybe this trailer has never have made it out of it's home province!

Cool Eee

Interesting video. The Ens/Enns story is cute! Also, they had a fire like Scamp. It seems a lot of companies have had fires. I worked for one (RTE, now part of Cooper) which gave free coffee from the vending machines because they had a fire caused by an employee leaving a coffee pot running over the Christmas break.

However, looking at the land cruisers they build, I see they lost touch with their roots, the 13' which started them in business. I didn't see any reference to eggs. The video only shows stick built rigs.

That is okay. Scotty

and our various egg manutacturers are more than willing to take up the slack.

It kinda sort looks like a Biggar trailer, which isn't it our albums either ...

Didn't Triple E also make Boler 13's (or clones) for awhile? Or am I remembering that wrong?

Leocraft interior

Finally got to town with my camera. Owner was not home, so interior shots are through the glass (trailer is on the street). Trailer is being used for storage presently. First picture is from the rear looking forward, with the door on the right. Second shot is from aft of the door, looking across the rear of the trailer. Third shot is from in front of the door, looking across the front of the trailer.

I've seen interiors that were worse. A little elbow grease and it would probably make a very nice trailer for someone.

Nope. I'm still working through my new (to me) Bigfoot 5th wheel. I just thought it was a cool trailer that I had not heard of previously. I can inquire if anyone on the board is interested.

Hi Cam, Could you find out any info on this trailer for me? If it's for sale, how much, what shape it's in, size, etc. Thanks, Marina
