Yep, A shoebox and the box it came in...A perfect match!
Matching two tone would be great!

How bizarre is that! Someone has posted a picture of a 1958 model on this forum. Go to General Chat...

My grandfather and his 2 partners owned a fiberglass shop and built the mold and made 12 of these, and then sold the mold to another company in southern California somewhere. I found all these original pics in his filling cabnet. I have the original, first made, prototype camper that i'm starting restoration on. We always kept that first one in the family until about 23 years ago when my mom and her ex sold it. But a few years back i went over to one of my biker buddys houses, and there it sat. So needless to say, she's back in the family now. in my backyard. That's gramps in his 20's on the left on the top of the truck

Very interesting story! So sad that they only built a dozen of them. What condition is yours in, and how much will you have to do to it? If you can, please post some pictures of the trailer as it is now. Then as you renovate it, you could post updates with more pics at various stages. We'd all enjoy seeing this!

Is that a 1959 Plymouth Belvedere convertible towing in the second photo? Great combination! It looks like the trailer could have used a little bit longer tongue to help get those dual LP tanks a bit farther away from the V8 dual exhaust tail pipes!

Luke, what is your grandfather's name? Do you know if the company in California continued to make them? A fantastic piece of history.
