Hi, I am Deb J

Welcome!

Here’s an old thread...
http://www.fiberglassrv.com/forums/f...amp-50320.html

According to this thread it may be the first commercially sold molded fiberglass trailer in North America.

Looks like you hit the jackpot!

Thanks Jon. It was a good read. We are aware they started building in 57, released for sale in 1958. I tried to send a photo but not sure how to upload it. Will keep trying.

Deb. Easy once you know how. In the quick reply window, click on Go Advanced, that'll bring up the familiar paper clip button to add attachments, then go from there.
Looking forward to the pics.

Wow what a cool trailer. Our family had a fiberglass boat manufactured in the mid 50's and built very well. At that time fiberglass recreational items tended to be very overbuilt. our boat was solid, but also heavy. Cingradulations on yourvfind. I think you have a real treasure.

So here are the before pictures of when we picked her up. Has a dinette in the front, a fold out couch in the stern with a small sink and stove/refrigerator combo. Dry as a bone and solid! We will be enjoying her this summer for sure! Have not seen another one like her anywhere.
