Hey gang,

Anyone see that show "History Detectives"? I need to get my trailer on that show, because I need more information about it. Now, I don't think Richard Nixon or Jim Morrison owned my trailer, but I am interested about the company that once made it.

This is what I know:

It was made in August 1973 in Hawaiian Gardens, California on Centralia Rd. by "Beta Design Company." I assume it was a company copying the Boler design, since our trailer looks a lot like a Boler. Anyway, that's all I know. I know one person contacted me way back when about a Minit he bought. I've contacted history people in Hawaiian Gardens about this, but no one has replied. They most likely see I'm from Oregon and/or think I'm off my rocker.

Does anyone know anything about this trailer company? What would be cool is to find an old owner's manual or other literature about the trailer.

The mystery continues...

Do you still have this? What part of Oregon? My wife and I purchased #0254, used, in the mid 1970s. Still own it, but it's at our sons place, now. Never found much about Beta Design.

That's a pretty cool manufacture stamp looks like they had there kids etch it on to a piece of sheet metal no graphic design team needed.
