Well naturally I went on the web to see what I could find and found nothing on this particular trailer. I did however find a very interesting trailer wich you can google at 1960 model X ( this unit is actually for sale but a little out of my range ). Well worth looking at. I'm not good at providing an actual link. Lee

Wowser I don't have a clue, and actually don't think I have ever seen such a thing! But I love it! Hang in there, someone might have a suggestion to the answer you seek. But no matter what, show us more pics! You may never find a lot of info on it, but what a gem! Enjoy it!


Did you just purchase it?

It would be wrong to pull that trailer with any vehicle made after about 1960. I think a 1959 Dodge would be perfect.

I have a 1957 Pontiac that I think will be the tow rig!

Yes I bought it! I found this trailer twelve or so years ago doing a job for the owner. I tried to buy it then and he did not want to sell,fast forward a few years and I went back to try agin and could not find the house?? Oh well I thought it was gone,fast forward to a couple weeks ago and I get a call from a freind that says I have to go look at this crazy trailer in a local repair shop DING DING DING Winner. It was the same trailer I had found years earlier but now it was for sale.

Great find! Congratulations. How much did you pay? Looks in good condition. Does it need much?

What a great find........ I'm really happy for you. I like that light over the Dinette... Looks like a gas lamp or something.
