I don't know what ever gave the seller the idea it's 1915??

That looks like it would be a perfect match for my little truck. Shame that I'm so far away from it.

Trailers made from Model Ts show up all the time on my local Craigslist (Minneapolis). There are two right listed at the moment.

Most were probably assembled in 1930s and later and, if you are a purist, would not be appropriate hitched to the back of a Model T.

Here is a 1917 ad from a trade journal for the Brice Automatic Coupler which is shown in the Detroit Craigslist ad:

Because some component on it (probably hitch assembly, but it's hard to tell from the pictures) has a patent plate with a 1915 date.

Many thanks for your post James.
I bought the trailer in Detroit.

I want to buy a depot hack, and put a hitch on it to pull a float in a parade. Is installing a hitch a crazy idea?
