Looks like a good place to contact for more info. Looks like a nice concept.

We had a motorcycle trailer (Shelly) before we got Peanut, but it was more for cargo than for sleeping in. But we saw several that folded out for sleeping in...I'm with those who say this looks like it's pulled with a motorcycle. Shelly was four feet wide, thereabouts. Cute. Professionally made. Yours looks so, too. As some have said, missing some canvas or something. A good puzzle for us all.

Thatís more along the lines of what Iím seeing when I do searches online. I canít seem to find anything like this one, yet.

On a completely different note, my new pup was named Kai when I got her. It became Kaia one day and it stuck. She was 11 months yesterday.

Chips,

I am pretty sure what you have there is what is called a Mother-in-law trailer. A little know fact is that it was produced by Scamp in their very early years before they got into the camper business.

It was made to be towed behind a camper and it also didn't come with a canopy. That platform on the hitch is a footrest for her. Yours is just missing the seat that would be mounted on the fiberglass top. You can trust me on this!

Seriously: I have seen a number of 'Motorcycle Camp Trailers' over the years, and own two. One factory made, Cycle Camp -m.f.g. box 36" x 74". The other, 'Home-built' of .065 aluminum checker-plate, all welded construction, box 36" W x 54" L. What you have could very well have been 'Home-Built' utilizing a rooftop luggage box. The frame on the tongue would likely be for carrying a cooler.
BTW, I hauled my 'Cycle Camp' from Kelowna, via Sumas WA, Seattle, Portland OR, Lincoln City, OR, Reno NV, Lake Tahoe, San Jose, CA, Ontario CA San Diego, CA, Tijuana, MX, (over 1-1/2 weeks) Then back, over the eastern route (CA, NV, ID, Montana, ID again, WA(NE), and BC) on Labor Day weekend - 1950 mi., 3-1/2 days!

Lloyd: you've DONE some camping with your then-set-up! I agree the little platform seemed made for a cooler designed to fit that spot.

On both my 'Cycle' trailers, the spare was horizontally mounted on the tongue, in that position, and my cooler was 'Bungeed' to the spare. Convenient for a cool sip, at a rest stop. Note: Our miniature poodle rode in a 'Tank Bag' on my fuel tank, too.

I found out what it is! Yay for me!!

Itís called a Cycle Sleeper. Evidently they were only made for a couple years in the mid seventies. Hereís some pics of one that was very well preserved.

Yeah, there were numerous designs over the years, but it was a small market niche. Lee-sure Light has cross-marketed to the small car market, to stay alive.
