Was the Nomad Molded Fiberglass?

Whether or not it was - its still a neat trailer for 1962.
Worth snagging the pictures for the archives here.

1962 Nomad 3-in-1 Boat and tent trailer combo | eBay

Excellent post - that's stunning (if maybe drifting a little off topic...). I love the way the trailer base also floats and is shown being towed by the boat.

That's cool. It would be neat to see a picture of the tent-trailer set up.

The ebay listing does say it is fiberglass.

The listing has more pictures including the brochures that show the tent trailer set up. Use the link in the first post above before the listing expires to see the pictures for the next few days.

I dont have the time right now to copy and paste all the pictures into the thread.

I wonder if this is where the concept of the trailor boat came from?

I wonder if one could put an air conditioner on the roof of one of these?

I appreciate it Andrew; thank you for your efforts.
We may get more photos from someone that might be able to get over there and see it in person.

Talk about your "dinghy towing." Seller is in Hamilton, Roy; you should buy it! Whoever does can count on a very fast onset of the dreaded two-inch-itis.

I noticed that Jack, I already did a reverse lookup on the phone. It was cellular.

With a trailer that size, I could separate the 1/2's, put each on their side on a moving dolly and actually be able to get a trailer between the houses into the back yard. If I have enough room for a wheel barrow, I should be able to have enough room for one of these.

I hope Carol Ann is not reading this. I'll be out in the dog house, or is that the dog in the outhouse.
She does not want to be polytrailerous.

Look on the bright side, Roy. You can sleep in this in the back yard.

Talk to her about saving it, and getting it to "flip", finding a good home for it.

Bring it home with her "agreement" then see how things develop.

Amazingly creative and pretty versatile. But in the end it's a pop-up tent trailer... not for me.

I can hear it now:
You have not finished the first one, barely started the second and now you want a third?

I'll pass. Just a neat trailer to see.

I looked at the ad copy wherein I discovered that the true ingenuity is in making two barely adequate horse troughs appear capable of providing shelter, transportation, and recreational fulfillment to a family of three. Ya gotta believe!?
