That's a neat old trailer, can't say that I've ever seen one before even in pictures. I like it! :thumbsup:

Steve,

Thanks for posting the ad! :thumbsup:

It appears to be heavily modified, but may well be what is left of an original!

RT.

Here is a page that shows what they really looked like.

Rob, the only one I have ever seen was yours. Can't beat a Woody version in my opinion. But this seemed neat enough that someone might want it. I'm not much of an expert on old trailers. If it is in good shape, the price looks fair compared to a new factory model that does not have the charm the old ones.

Steve,

Mine isn't an original, but a custom version...
No matter, I like it! :thumbsup:

These days, any well done trailer is not a bad deal at $7000
The Cabin Car trailers are quite unique, and the woody versions go for quite a bit more.
It will make someone a nice trailer!

Yours is a beautiful trailer Rob, how ever you classify it. Hopefully some one that buys this one will camp with us some day and we will get to see it.

Hello Folks! I am Andy Ellis and I have been lurking here for about a month and I have searched high and low for a Roomy light teardrop to pull behind my rather pathetic little 6 cylinder Ford Escape. I need something in the 1000# range and this little beauty fits the bill.
"Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature." I'm gonna do it in a teardrop.
