I agree.

That compound curve in front would be a DIY challenge

That looks similar to the Cadet, a European fiberglass trailer from the 1980s. There's also an aluminum trailer that looks similar and I think the name begins with a P. If I can recall it, I'll come back and edit.

Finally came to me -- Eriba Puck!

Eriba is still a functioning company and has came out with a retro trailer which salutes their original caravans.

I use to own an Eriba Puck so I would say not so much. I do think it looks like an old Westfalia.

Also, MeerKat trailers have that retro look.

I noticed they now have a very light 4 x 8 teardrop, the CampKat.
