    I like the teardrop stye even if you have it set up to haul your stuff rather than sleep in and camp with.

    I've got the frame off an old Teardrop that uses Model T rails for the frame and has wide 5's on a trailer axle to roll on. It will be a card carrying teardrop again in the next couple of years though.

    One of my favorites, an old bumper car.
    (the color looks weird because my camera fell in the river)

    I wish i had pictures of it, but a while back, there was about a 2005 or so Mustang, and behind it was a custom trailer. They took the back half of another 05 and that was their trailer. And then of course...every one knows about the Coke Box trailers.

    Why build one? I will sell you this one, you can paint it to match your ride.

  10. This is an old trailer I found lurking out in a customers field. I had repainted it, installed fresh fenders and used it a bunch. Seen here with my son's 53 on it being towed to a car show.
    The tow vehicle is my 41 Chevy truck, Isuzu pickup chassis, small block Chevy powered, we call the Crusty Cruiser.

    A 1990`s trailer is old?
  13. Actually this old trailer was orginally built in the 70's with mobile home axles, it's registered as a 1974. I replaced the axles with more modern stuff and electric brakes for safety.

    Yes That is our old rig... we looked at a lot of older trailers and trying to do a period correct trailer for the T-Dirt track car. I think it came out nice

    This is my tear drop. It had a wood tongue and frame under it when I got it. Fixed that because I couldn't see it at 70 mph safely.
