Well naturally I went on the web to see what I could find and found nothing on this particular trailer. I did however find a very interesting trailer wich you can google at 1960 model X ( this unit is actually for sale but a little out of my range ). Well worth looking at. I'm not good at providing an actual link. Lee

Wowser I don't have a clue, and actually don't think I have ever seen such a thing! But I love it! Hang in there, someone might have a suggestion to the answer you seek. But no matter what, show us more pics! You may never find a lot of info on it, but what a gem! Enjoy it!

It would be wrong to pull that trailer with any vehicle made after about 1960. I think a 1959 Dodge would be perfect.

I have a 1957 Pontiac that I think will be the tow rig!

Yes I bought it! I found this trailer twelve or so years ago doing a job for the owner. I tried to buy it then and he did not want to sell,fast forward a few years and I went back to try agin and could not find the house?? Oh well I thought it was gone,fast forward to a couple weeks ago and I get a call from a freind that says I have to go look at this crazy trailer in a local repair shop DING DING DING Winner. It was the same trailer I had found years earlier but now it was for sale.

Great find! Congratulations. How much did you pay? Looks in good condition. Does it need much?

What a great find........ I'm really happy for you. I like that light over the Dinette... Looks like a gas lamp or something.

Nice find! I love how they claim that fiberglass is "cool in summer; warm in winter." Yeah sure, if you are in Minnesota in the summer and Florida in the winter

Also interesting that they spell it "fibreglass," which is usually Canadian (on our continent anyway), yet they are a California company.

Also, did you know that "lightweight fibreglass construction... eliminates road rumble"?

Great old ad

I totally want to see the inside of the trailer! Sounds like the furniture is fiberglass; I wonder what the walls are like? Insulated? Blonde wood?

Oh how did I miss that?

Thanks!

(Oh for cute! Robin's egg blue and all! I wonder how the walls are treated. Perhaps there is some Ensolite-like product, or...)
