Is that what I think it is?

Is that a rare "AdobeAir" from the 30s?

Looks like it needs a new axle. I can't even see any wheels!

Eureka! You found it!!!

That's Wallys $5.00 Homemade trailer from the original kit plans. I always knew it was just a matter of time before one of us ran across one of them. Now see if you can buy it and restore it! Ed

This old trailer was found in south central colorado......in the San Luis Vally, not far from the Great Sand Dunes National Park. It's final resting place...
could be restored with a lot of chiseling???

Mike, I'm far from an expert on these things but I think a chisel would probably leave scratches. If you really want to learn how to polish an Airstream or other SOB please use the search function and I'm sure you'll get plenty of great information there.

Good luck on your project and keep us posted with lots of pictures. We love pictures.

When I saw the picture I thought someone had made that trailer from a very large bar of soap!
