I bought an old trailer magazine from 1957 and was browsing thru it today and found an advertisement with a big photo of an egg! I had no idea there was one from that long ago!

Just when did they start making the molded fiberglass trailers?

This is an awfully cute thing.

Pretty neat. Tons of windows. I'd sure like to see one in person.

That would be a hit at any egg gathering. I wonder if there are any still around?

I sure love all the windows but that makes me wonder how they managed any storage space on the interior. Sure would like to see the inside.

I would love to see it too.

I would expect that the lower half of the back end "bulge" is storeage. Along with anything under a seat, the sink and the stove. I imagine it has as much storeage as a 13 foot Boler.

I dunno Donna but I guess this egg can be added to the Home page list of eggs. We might draw some owners in one day looking around the web! I want one... I love vintage..

Good point Camilla. Then too, I've edited this topic title to include the trailer name, just in case someone choses to search for it!

Man! What a rare bird. There's got to be one still around somewhere. What's really neat is how it echoes the automotive tailfins of the times. It's just too cool!

",,,and eliminates all road rumble." Hmmm. Does that mean that Ma was back there cooking while this thing was going down the road?

I seem to remember that someone had one of these for sale, and posted here to see if there was any interest some time ago. I cannot find that post. He did not post a "For Sale" ad, only a link to his Ebay auction. The back did resemble a 1957 Chevy...
