Trailer: Boler 13 ft

I saw an interesting trailer on the freeway Hwy 101 between Petaluma and Santa Rosa. The name on back looked like "Markette" or Marquett or similar. Flat sides, roof was sort of domed and appeared to be at least 20' long. Can anyone ID this one?

When I was in High School, my uncle owned a [b]Marlette of about that size. It was built in the early 60's and was a "park" model (no water tanks, regular toilet). That company also built larger "Mobile Homes".

Uncle Hoddy's trailer vaguely resembled Bardy A's trailer because of the LARGE windows in the front.

I thought about that trailer, and searched old photo albums. I found it! True, it is not fiberglass. But it was considered a "high quality" brand name of it's day. Uncle Hoddy's Marlette was maybe 30' long and 8' wide.
