Many of them had wheels to be transported where there may not be rails (yet), but could also be loaded on flatcars and chained down for transport in a train, which is why this unit has the tie-downs.
The high ground cleaarnce and hitch height were so they could be towed by the 2 1/2 ton trucks, without dragging the rear bumper (so to speak) on the ground.
These things could be "out there" for months at a time, so the propane tanks were large enough to use for an extended period without refueling.

I looked closer and the side door is definitely an add on, the back door was the only one originally. It does have tie down rings.
Fortuneatly it looks like no damage was don installing the side door and with new aluminum it can be restoed back to original.


Help me put a value on this one

Does this belong in a museum?
Can you put me in touch with anyone? I have contacted the North Carolina transportation museum by email already.

You can try the Virginia Museum of Transportation, they may want it:

Good luck finding a home for it.

My wife would buy the trailer if it was closer to us. It would go good with our 1975 Airstream, 1983 Burro and our newly aquired house trailer. The house trailer is a 1958 located on property in Ocean Park,Wa. I don't know the brand yet. It is silver on the outside and has birch paneling on the inside.
The silver color is growing on us.

Looks like an easy conversion to a "Toybox".
