One was listed for sale in Ontario here in 2010. It would be cool to get more details.

Looking at the windows, the walls seem fairly thick. I wonder if there is some framing too, or if it maybe is well insulated. Somebody has to go check it out for us.

Canadian made. Ultra customized... However it needs a modified truck to tow
Shaving down the side walls or removing them for a flat bed style. Quite the commitment.

Hmm. '74 to 78. At least 3-4 units a week. Over a couple hundred units maybe.

According to that last photo, the roof appears to have collapsed creating a valley in front middle?

Fantastic find for a "do-it-yourselfer". Seems like a real value.

Because it requires a special truck, with a flat bed hitch of some sort, it might be a bear to even get home to work on. But I agree, it's a fascinating looking opportunity.

Here's another link to the same website (A site dedicated to the life of the builder). It shows close up pictures of the trailers and the modified trucks. Trailers pictured are obviously not fibreglass. They also mention steel frame work. Could they have switched to fiberglass later? Wrong company? Wrong brand in the ads?
