It's loosely based on the Cabin Car big teardrop and here is the build thread on the Teardrops forum:

New Build Super Size Cabin Car Trailer

I think you've caught the trailer on its shake-down run from GA to CA and back. No weight is given, so I've asked.

The local trailer shop has done frame work for a guy in Mich. that makes custom wooden teardrop trailers. Can't find a picture online. Never asked for the company or persons name. Just a casual conversation when having some trailer work specd. out.

Those would sure look great behind a classic P/U truck.

Not really that eggy, the front and back are rounded but the side edges aren't rounded enough. If that's an egg, so is the Heartland MPG and the R-Pod.

That said, the wood look is attractive. I wonder for how long, though?

Tow it behind an ol' woody wagon for the ultimate! (and varnish it once a year - just like woody wagons need, too!)

I think this trailer was influenced by someone else's rather more authentic replica of a Cabin Car:



Here is the builder's photobucket album. And, yes, he really does tow it with a Model A.

Sure hope that trailer has good brakes!

That '29 Model A had mechanical brakes that were VERY good (by 1929 standards) but with a heavy trailer on the back and mechanical brakes with narrow drums all round (not to mention the whopping 41 hp that Henry's new 4 cyl flattie was born with)

I picture this thing being chased by a rabid pack of termites.

The second Cabin Car was built by Rob who is a true craftsman. His first build was a "rebuild" of a Mobile Scout. It too is a work of art. Rob has been in the vintage trailer world for years, is a very knowledgeable and a nice guy too.

Looks like its right out of an old popular mechanics magazine. A work of art - glass or not! Of course it's got to weigh a ton! But that sit-down tub takes the cake. Thanks for sharing!

Hi: All... I wonder if its nicknamed "The Spruce Goose Egg" ??? I certainly hope the doors don't swell shut in the humidity.
