I need help with identifying my trailer.

Postby JLPettimore » Thu Aug 03, 2017 9:20 am

I just got this and it needs a good bit of work. It's 6 1\2 feet wide and 13 feet long with the tongue. It's 6' 8" in height. I have been unable to determine what brand etc it is. I would appreciate any help. Thank you

You know the usual... a complete tear down or near to it. ImageImageImageImage

I'll send the link to a friend that restores old trailers.

Thanks. I have always wanted a small camper but with three kids and a wife I just never thought a rear drop was practical. I got this one nearly free. I am okay with rehabbing it myself but I want to know a little about it.

It's okay. I can wait. I have begun taking apart the back end where the rot is bad. Going slow and hopefully saving the metal.

I went by his place he's not around. So I'm thinking he's traveling.

Got a reply!
"Very hard to tell. The siding profile is unique though".
So there is a clue your siding profile is unique. Sorry that's all I got.

It looks a lot like a Go Tag Along - http://gotagalong.com

There are a lot of variations. My trailer used to be one but when I found it it had been taken down to the chassis, the owner pitched all the parts sadly.
