Anyone heard of a Lincoln trailer?

First weekend in October, I was at the Aggieland RV Park in Bryan, TX. Parked next to this rig. They were in town for an antique car show, and had a really neat Model T. They were towing with a nicely restored old Buick.

They told me the trailer was a 1959 Lincoln, made in Lincoln, NE. They hadn't had it long and were at the "aluminum tent" stage in their restoration of it.

Has anyone heard of the Lincoln brand?

Never seen one of those but there were literally dozens and dozens of canned ham trailer makers back in those days. One tip off it may not be one of the higher end makers is the rusting screws used to attach the siding to what is likely wood framing. The ribbed aluminium is a nice touch but staples or screws dont hold up as well as rivets seem to.

Yup, replacing the rusty screws in our Shasta is on my list. Stainless steel should do the job until the next restoration.
