Here is a really neat, very small
trailer. For some reason, this concept never really caught on.
Trailerboats were manufactured in San Rafael California for just a
few years. There really are not many of them around.
The fiberglass construction makes
these impervious to the elements. The concept of a small teardrop
trailer had been around for years when these went into production.
What makes these so unique is the boat on the top. That’s right…
the boat unclips, comes off, and the motor goes on the back of the
boat. There is a fully enclosed roof on the trailer under the
boat. You open the side door and there is a surprisingly roomy
interior. Storage shelf up front. Fishing rod racks on both sides,
and flip up Herr windows for ventilation. Open the back door and
what do you get… a galley. Plenty of cooking space, storage for a
cooler, dishes and the back door doubles as a table.
When I found this trailer it was a
mess. Someone had thrown a bowling ball through the side. The
fenders were cut out with a jigsaw so wide tires could be
installed. After repairing the fiberglass back to original, we
painted the trailer to match my 54 Cadillac convertible. Check it
