Help identifying a trailer

I have a question for the good people on this forum. I have some pictures of a travel trailer I need identified, so where do I down load the pictures and ask for help identifying it? It is not an Argosy or Airstream.

Tom,
Attach it to your post here and someone will have an idea what it is. Probably not me, but somebody on here will know.

From the regular "Quick Reply" click "Go Advanced" Then go to the "Browse" fill in. Find your photo on your computer and click "Upload". You will then get an upload window. When the upload is complete close the upload window, click submit and you are there. Simple huh? (It's not as bad as it sounds)

The round pne looks like a Spartan. if you look closely at the area in front of the main door in the first photo, youcan see the ghost of the Spartan logo.
The other one looks like a Vagabond.

The rounded one is only 16ft from back to tip of tongue and the cabin is 13ft. It only has one door and no ribs on the back. Did they make a Spartan that small? The other one has a 1947 Iowa license plate on it.

They had a round window on Airflot. The other windows on the smaller trailer may not be original with those rounded off corners.

The Lincoln would make a nice tow vehicle.

The front and back window are sliders so I doubt they are original.

absolutely a spartanette logo. looks like the edge trim is missing. this spartanette is a 47 and has a round window porthole:



but the windows look to be from the 1930s? the tail lights look like the glass bargmans on sale on TCT for $300.
dare is suggest... could this be a prototype?

Where is it? are you buying it?

Save the old 1947 license plate those are collectable and have some value.

That emblem isn't the Spartan logo, it's a Indian with headdress. I don't know if it's original or added later.

I sent an e-mail to VintageCampers.com :: Vintage Campers, Vintage Trailers, Vintage Parts, Vintage Restorations to see if he knew what it is, he didn't but said Atlas Mobile Home Museum might. I sent them an e-mail and here is their reply:

Hi Tom:
This is a small camping trailer built by the Indian Trailer Corp., once located at 122 E. 63rd St, Chicago, IL. The company was in business from 1936 to 1957. They built mobile homes and occasionally a small camper like yours. I am guessing yours is a 1950-51 model. If you are looking for info in Indian Trailer Corp., I have a large archive on the company with many original brochures and other material. I will be more than happy to add this entire archival set as a free bonus if you purchase at least one of my vintage trailer CDs at my webstore:
