The front wrap around windows and sloping back have the general proportions of a vintage Franklin grp (glass reinforced plastic) caravan. It's probably not this 1969 model, but you get the idea.

Vintage Caravans - Franklin 14ft fibreglass caravan

BTW, I wonder what became of these curved plexi windows in trailers. It seems like everyone thought they were the future, but you almost never see them!

Regards,

Matt

The body sure looks to be a Franklin with updated windows and a cool paint job.

Unless it raises up it doesn't look like it could take much of a bump.

The running boards on the truck are on the ground. Bet both tug and tow have air bag suspensions
