Does anybody have any information or pictures of a Lil' Pup
clamshell cargo trailer? I had one twenty years ago and was
fortunate enough to find one yesterday, but the graphics are
gone and I'd like to restore it. I'd also like any history on the
company, it just doesn't exist on google and I thought everything
was obtainable on google. Thanks in advance. Mike

Looks like a trailer for a tiny person! Almost like a trailer for a motorcycle. Humm, does it really matter if the decals are toast? Now is the time to make it uniquely your own. Or, maybe you can paint the decals if there's enough left to see an outline?? I also Googled trying to be helpful. And it appears the company that originally made the Lilttle Pup is out of business? Or at least they quit paying the bills to keep the website active:

Yeah, they're almost too big for a bike, but a lot of bike guys pull them.
I don't think that company was in business when the WWW existed, so I
doubt they ever had a web site. It would be nice to know the history anyway.
There is an outline of the graphics that's visable, I've got a buddy that can
handle it I think. Thanks for your help, if you ever find out anything give me
a holler. Mike

It's doubtful you will hear from him. You may have to get creative on the hinges. I'm sure there are other companies still making fiberglass luggage trailers for motorcycles. Perhaps they have something that will work. A motorcycle forum- maybe one for Goldwing owners, since I see many of them pulling trailers- might be a place to get some better information about sourcing a hinge.

Hi Lauren, Great looking Li'l Pup you have there! I love the old original decal of the pup - I used to have one of the original reflective ones in my bedroom growing up. My dad worked for Shoreline Products Inc for decades. I used to assemble those trailers in the Shoreline manufacturing plant in Arlington. Do you still have that Li'l Pup brochure you took a picture of? ...Thanks - Matt

Hi Mike, Do you still have that Li'l Pup you wanted to restore? I realize your post was from long ago but just wondering what became of it. I can try to give you some history if you'd like. ...Hope all is well! -- Matt Starnes

Here are some pictures of my Li'l Pup. It too is for sale if anyone is interested in purchasing. It may have been the first off the line - my dad actually had a personalized tag on it that read, "Pup One". Instead of the spring shocks, this one is equipped with a torsion axle - rides sooo smooth down the road! It also received a special paint job with aircraft quality paint long ago that is still holding up well. This cargo trailer has always been garage kept and very well maintained. Can't put a number on how many miles it has on it but our family has used it extensively and it has many more miles left in the tank for sure! $2,200. You may contact me at matt.starnes1@gmail.com More Pictures can be seen at.... https://photos.app.goo.gl/Jx28FbTKpAsWU6CE6
