Does anyone recognize this make/model of trailer?
 
This is on my local classifieds for a few hundred bucks. You guys know anything about it?

Michael,

If Donna happens along, from the color and location of the battery box and the height of the door grab handle, she can probably give you the brand, how many were made and the serial number!

It looks a little like a Trillium Jubilee

If you're up for a project, grab it! A thorough clean-up would be more than enough to double its value.

Just don't underestimate the time and cost for a complete rehab. You might recover the cost of materials and parts, but you have to consider your time as recreation (or perhaps an alternative to therapy :loltu).

Well, that is a unusual one. At first blush, it looks like a Play Pac Hitch Hut, but its not. The wheel wells, angle of the front end and other things are wrong. I wonder if there's a title for the trailer? Then we'd ALL know what it is! :thumb

Yes It does look like a Trillium Jubile

Every Trillium Jubilee I have seen has jalousie windows and a flat door.

So. We know what's not.

Maybe a Beachcomber?
 
To me, shapewise it looks like a Beachcomber. However the window looks quite a bit smaller than what i see on most BC's and the frame (tongue) is different as well. Maybe a very early version?????

I think that's IT!! The wheel wells are the same shape, the door hinges, the lockset, the windows and even the furnace? grill in the same place. This is a pic of sdraxten's Beachcomber.

Have you looked closely for a plate with the serial number and so on? Often on the driver side front down low? Or do these older trailers not have them?

A neighbor of mine had a Surfside trailer that looked exactly like that one. Hope that helps.

Mystery Trailer
 
Fiberglass trailer- I'd be surprised if it isn't already sold!

Yep, ended up selling quick after someone offered a few hundred more than he was asking. Thanks everyone for the tips!

Anything fiberglass is selling for crazy prices. I've had, in the last 3 weeks, 2 people knock on my door asking if I wanted to sell my Scamp. I should have quoted a ridiculous price but fear of not finding another one stopped me.:D

We get asked often if our Bigfoot 17 is for sale. I had to wait years for it and bought it from a neighbor's estate, so no, it's not for sale.

kvnj 12-19-2020 01:22 PM

My Boler is in the garage at our house, and whenever people come over to see my husband about his cars or parts he's selling they all ask if it's for sale. Several years ago we had our business for sale and it was stored there, and the buyer asked if it was included in the sale! The appeal of these little trailers never ceases to amaze me.

tabertooley 12-19-2020 01:24 PM

i am pretty sure the brand name is Beachcomber. i owned one around 1986 for awhile, they were made in Canada in the 1970's. if it is that cheap i would snap it up! i live in
Alberta, Canada. Good luck

kipper 12-19-2020 02:51 PM

yep thats a Beachcomber for sure. There is one in my neighborhood looks just like that.

Dolldoll 12-19-2020 04:43 PM

Beachcomber. I have one.
