Help identify this trailer

I saw this trailer when I was dumping my tanks this weekend in the White Mountains of Arizona. It looked to be around 16 feet or maybe a little longer. The tag on the trailer said Santa Fe Springs, CA and the serial number is 16-4139. It has seven roof segments.

I've seen a 52' Flying Cloud that look real close to this trailer

I could be wrong, but my vote would be for a late '58, early '59 18 footer... Wanderer, or Traveller (they're all the same). I've got one in the yard, in fact! :D

I don't think it is that old. The early 50's have too may segments.

mine had that same little offset rear trunk, before i replaced that skin, anyway!

Richard-

Very cool trailer. It is a Calf. 16 ft for sure and I would say it is a Flying Cloud. Post it up with the FC threads.

Flying Clouds are all 21 or 22 feet long.
The rear end to me says 1960 Pacer, but the serial number is wrong if it is.

I examined this same trailer and found it to be a '59 Traveler, at least I'm quite certain. Unless, Fred, the club historian tells me different, I'm sticking to my guns. Whatever it is, I want it. :)

I saw it first, but you have room for it now! The people you pay to use the dump station where it is parked didn't have a clue....

I know, we asked them too. It looked fairly complete inside but no shower. It is definately a CA built unit.

And it is definitely not a 52 Flying Cloud. Wrong back end, wrong number of segments, too short, and very sadly, it's not parked in my yard where I could lavish it with attention.

Geewillickers, the things you find when you go to dump your tanks. So who is going to go rescue this poor little critter? It does look like it needs a loving home.

No markings.

I swear that looks like some variety of the Spartan vintage. A Royal Spartenette maybe? Camperski here on the forums is familiar with the breed. It sure is pretty . . .
