You can register trailers as "homemade" if you cannot figure out all of that info (at least in Ontario). We built a teardrop trailer and had it registered as homemade with no issues.

I keep coming back and looking at the pictures. Like... I know I've seen those fiberglass pieces. Now, don't let anything I say take away from your enjoyment of owning YOUR trailer. BUT, I think the fiberglass pieces came from something else, and were not fabricated for the trailer.

Note, how rounded the corners are and they don't fit very well.

I THINK those pieces came from airfoils made for semi trucks back in the early 1960s. This is about the best pic I could quickly find.

But then again, I could be totally off base.

I think I'm with Donna (and John). That thing was pieced together out of fiberglass panels meant for something else.

Tom K while touring Ann Franks house there was a guy selling paintings there he had a car with a 4cy Briggs and Stratton motor in it. The car was tiny he gave me a tour of it but I forgot to get the model nr.


Ever seen or heard of one of those?

Airfoils

The suggestion that the front and back are airfoils sounds right as there is no manufacturer on the paperwork and no nameplate and they are the right size. I wish I had taken a picture of the interior before I gutted it but the interior required more work that I anticipated. The roof is shaped like a foam meat container with rounded sides. I guess it is homemade. The rear bumper is really high quality steel which is impossible to drill through. I didn't show the door because I thought the door had been added afterward. When we were in Newfoundland in 2012 we got a lot of stares because our tow was a 1997 Aerostar. By then Aerostars had all rusted from the sea air. That was a great van for camping . Loading it was just a matter of opening the doors and tossing everything in. It could hold everything and great towing capacity.
