Help Identifying this trailer

Hi guys,

I am having trouble identifying this trailer. It has been sitting on my mountain property for many many years. It was in fact there when I bought the property.

I was told the old man who built the cabin on the property lived in the trailer while he built it in the 1940s.

I have really tried to find any type of plate that would identify it but no luck. Any help would be appreciated.

If he built the cabin then maybe... just maybe he built that too.

Hey Copdude, I also came to this forum with an identification request. I know from research that Pathfinder had a similar shaped trailer in the mid 50s; and I see Ttaylor has noted the Scotty (50-60s) which I think could be a possibility as well.
Good luck,
CC

I lived in a post WWII 36ft Spartan while in college in the 60's which looked a lot like your little trailer except for size. Maybe a Spartanette if there was such a thing?

That trailer is your next project to pour lots of your $$$$$$, blood, sweat and tears into.

Or perhaps some poor schmuck who has way more $$$$ than experience will take it off your hands. It will be worth thousands after he or she pours a 100 grand into it in parts and labour.

I should have added a question mark to the end of this, I am not certain but it looks like a Scotty
