Its too long for a TradeWind so I'm guestimating an Overlander. A serial number would solve this puzzle emphatically.

I like the guessing. I have not looked at the archives and am still going with 61 overlander.

I think Frank is wrong. The rear hatch doesn't seem to be common on trailers post 60. 59 or 60 Overlander is now my official guess...

Oh, there could certainly be ONE '61 out there with a hatch, of that I have no doubt...

It looks like a 61 except for the wheel well cut outs. This trailer has a straight horizontal cut, which I believe started in 62. 61 and earlier had an upside down V cut. I'm thinking 62 Overlander.

Because of the tail lights and drip edge above the windows it can only be two years 1961 or a 1962! The tail light location tells me that it was built in CA not OH! OH put tail lights farther apart due to a OH codes in 1962) The wheel well cut out is not the "up-side-down V" found in 1962 on...It can not be a 1963 due to the drip edge over the door (1963 drip edge is very small on CA build) My guess would be a 1962 CA built "custom" Overlander! Final Answer! LOL

Well we have a '61 Overlander- and it certainly could be... each trailer was a little different back then. The question I have- is are you going to buy it without seeing the street-side at all? There are 4 sides to a trailer and you better look at pics of each of the 4 sides before you bite the bullet- its amazing what can be hiding without the picture to tell you.

uhm, owning a 62 overlander and having sat through Herb Spies incredibly boring talk about differences of Cali vs Ohio on the 1962 overlander, I can tell you that you have that directly opposite. Ohio built the straight wheel wheels and California messed with the cut out shapes. Those tail lights are also exactly in the same location as mine. The license plate is also high up and in the middle, Cali put it to the left and half way between the window and bumper. The drip caps were used right up until 1963. The other big clue is the battery box. It is taller in 62. The 61 I am currently working on has low sloped sides just like that one does.
1961 Overlander, Ohio built, twin bed model.

Hopefully no one will go look in the archives and cheat. This guessing is fun stuff.

Did anyone notice the large rear hatch and the drip cap above it? I didn't find any like that on RJ's site, looking at '60 to '63 models. My '64 has the large hatch, but no drip cap.
