I always try to take the time to respond to each and every email inquiry but due to the volume of inquiries I receive, I no longer have the time to respond the way I would like. We are not a business with lots of employees, we are hobbyists, probably like you.
In order to best answer your questions please read the following and use the resources below:
Are you trying to determine the year make and model of your trailer?
Post a picture on our facebook page so that we and the other several hundred thousand on the page can help. If you have more than one picture to post post them as "comments" under the main photo. To help you identify your trailer we need FULL body shots from several angles.
(ID requests emailed to me can not be personally answered.)
There were many different trailer brands in post war America. For many of them you will find little or no information on the internet.

Would you like to know what your trailer is worth?
That is a question I get asked a lot and there is no simple answer to. I recommend you research craigslist, ebay and watch our facebook page for similar trailers to find comparable prices. If you would like me to do the legwork I charge $49 for a comprehensive evaluation. Email me for the details.
Do you have a trailer, car, or other mid century collectible that you'd like to offer for sale? (Pre 1969 items)
We buy all of the above. I prefer not to make offers but would rather the seller to name their asking price and we'll go from there. When I am forced to make an offer, I usually offer around 50% of current market price. I will not steal your item away for pennies on the dollar. Keep in mind that condition and completeness has everything to do with its value as a collectable. I am a collector/restorer of mid century items and will not offer you 100% retail for your item. Instead, I will be willing to pay you a percentage of today’s market value with a margin for me to make some profit should I decide to sell it later. This, hopefully, will give me a little cushion should the bottom fall out of the market, and is a common practice among highly regarded and reputable dealers/collectors.
Email me pictures, price and location of what you are selling.
