I'm looking for any information members might have about it. I only know of one other one in Alberta.

If you look at the bottom of this page after the posts, it will show "similar" threads that mention the Dolphin.

Very cool! Thanks for sharing the photos!

This looks to be a very interesting trailer because of how (I think) it's made. Nearly all other eggs tend to be split in the middle, vertically or horizontally.

But looking at the photos, I think the Dolphin has a one-piece body down to the floor, except for the rear bulkhead which looks like it is separate and includes the underside of the rear overhang/porch.

Darcee, if you could take your trailer to bits in order to confirm how it was made, it would be much appreciated......

How old is "very old"? Anybody know when or where these were made?

EDIT - I think I see the answer to the second question in the photos - Calgary.

I think you're right. There are no seams within the body of the trailer.

It has a tag with a series number on it. As far as my research tells me it's 1970.

Very COOL trailer.

What interesting about yours is the rear area - the overhang - I have not seen that on other Dophin's that have come up for sale. Also the fact it was made in Calgary rather than Winnipeg by a different manufacturer as some of the others apparently were.
