It's similar to this Westcraft. Notice the tin construction and trolley top. Couldn't find a smaller version with single axle.

There are construction similarities - many trailers are similarly constructed - but the inspiration for Airstream's (discontinued) Basecamp was Airstream's own 1935 Torpedo.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

Reading the comments it doesn't look like they had any better luck figuring out what it is than we did.

What I've found out so far is that probably this was originally a one-off trailer, about which little is known other than it definitely is British. At some time fairly recently it was renovated using a 1970s or later caravan (=travel trailer) as a parts donor - which explains how a body that looks like it comes from the 50s/60s has things like a recessed exterior door handle or more recent interior cabinet latches - both the exterior handle and whole interior cabinetry came from the donor caravan.
