As the ad here indicates its the only one in North America and as it looks very European in style I am going to suggest its made in Europe.

Here is a link to a German website that has photos of various old Fahti Trailers.

Looks very much like some models of Biod. Must be The Netherlands influence!

No, Fahti were made in Germany before BIOD in the Netherlands took over and started producing them there. Does anyone here know where the one sold in Nanaimo in 2013 went to? I'd love to know!

Totally cool! Here's a link to a picture and some more info about them - in German so you'll need to translate.

Hi Evergreengirl, I will translate later when I have more time ;-)
They were under 1100 lbs and people have restored them, putting in lots of time and euro's. Getting the right parts in Germany/ Holland would be very expensive
