Last year I bought this 1948 teardrop.

When asked "How old is it?" I reply, "only one year younger than I am, but the trailer is in much better shape."

85514

There is no official provenance, but the details of how the trailer is built and many of the features are consistent with a trailer of that era, so I'm willing to accept "1948" as the year of origin. I love the oldness, but am almost finished renovating the interior with modern lighting, insulation, and hull liner wall covering.

Previously I owned a Little Guy, 4 wide teardrop that was "salvage" and I rebuilt it. Sold it last summer as I had bought a german made Eriba,Puck trailer to tow behind my German made VW beetle

The TD was a 2005... the Puck is a 1968 and all orignal. It is a "standie" and is a greta trailer ! But... I really,really miss my TD !
