I just bought this well preserved trailer as a home for my son who is moving back home to go finish his college education. I bought it without a title, just a bill of sale. There is a vin number stamped into the frame, but no labels anywhere on the trailer. The license plate is stamped 1963, but it almost looks older because it has the original tail lamp and there is only one in the center, no holes where dual tail lights might have been.

Thanks if anyone can help me ID the make of this trailer. It's well preserved because it was under cover most it life, as evidence of the paint job that shows how the owner painted around the support poles of the roof. Hans

That's what I'm thinking too.
Looks like it was somewhat converted and set up on a permanent site. Residential toilet and range...also looks like it had some kind of deck/patio roof attached to the side.

Way cool.

Very cool and looks to be in good shape. Just waiting for a re-do! Can't wait to see the update pictures you're going to post after your son gets moved in. Can I ask what you paid for it?

The photo of the wheel looks weird as the grease cup isnt centered on the rim.

Did you check Tin Can Tourists?

Maybe they have some info you can use to identify your trailer.

It's a cool unit, keep us updated on your progress.

Thanks for sharing.

The original heater is gone, but I saw a picture of one in a restored trailer that matches what I have, and I don't know about the conversion idea. The stove looks pretty original, I don't believe this trailer was built for boon docking. No signs there ever was a fresh water tank any where, and certainly no holding tanks. No gas lights, and it's all electric, including an electric hot water tank, not gas. If you did go down the road with a unit like this you went to trailer parks, not state parks. I just looked up "apartment fridges" and there are a host of manufactures who still make 10 cubic foot units that will fit the opening in the cabinet across from the stove. Thanks for the tips, I'm going to research some more.

That looks like the original stove and they are quite valuable in white and if working. Really a cool looking old trailer inside and out!
But does your son plan on keeping the heart motif on the kitchen cabinets? [emoticon]-

There is one that is very similar sitting on a lot between where I live and town. I'm going by there tomorrow and will see if it has any markings and try to take a pic so I can see if it really does look like yours. Will post more tomorrow night.

Pretty cool. Looks in good shape for the age.
