I have the idea to make a small trailer to be pulled by my 1917 roadster-pickup. I approached several members for drawings or foto"s but up to now no joy. the basis will be a T-frontaxle. Is there anybody around who can give me a hand by making available some drawings or pictures? Thanks Kees.

Hi Kees;
Iam sorry Kees I can not make pictures and send them to you with the computer that is much to difficult for me !!!!!!! to make a trailer is much easyer .
But when you are in our surroundings you can have a look and make some pictures
greetings Toon

Kees,

Dean Yoder of Iowa, who posts here from time to time, has a trailer he pulls everywhere with his T. Look for a message from him and see if you can't e-mail him directly. This is all I have - no closeup shots - but he can probably send you good pictures and answer any questions.

Dick

Dick Lodge...

Is that your covered trailer? That's great either way! Looks like a real early travel trailer!

Very nice!

No, it's Dean Yoder's. He drives it just about everywhere and camps in it.

Murray Fahnestock wrote this article in Ford Owner, Feb 1926 on making a "T" trailer.

The scans are the best size I can do on this site, if anyone wants a full size better photocopy, then click on my profile, email me and I will email my address. Can then mail you a free copy if you include a SASE in your request.

On the vehicles?
Any trailer brakes?
Thanks,
Dave

Outstanding!! I've been thinking of building a Gilke type tent trailer to tow behind my restored '16. I'm a vintage/antique trailer nut as well as an old Ford guy and weekend camper.

I'm really, really intrigued with what you folks are doing with your rigs! Do you guys have a website? Have you considered becoming a chapter of the Tin Can Tourists? You guys would be a HUGE hit at vintage trailer rallies!!!

Looks like a great way to enjoy the country!!!

Best regards,
Geo. - Ore.

PS: I like your anti-rain solution on the cowl of the '15. I know what that's about! =-)

none of us have any trailer brakes and none of us have accs. brakes. it is all in the skill of driving safely. useing the throttle, spark and transmission to handle the car. we do not have a web site. most of the members are from the north east, ny, ct, mass.

Keith- It's 37 inches tall from the ground to the top of the bed before the flair board. Jay

I'm looking for the height of the sides, and tailgate, not the overall height.

George et.al.: Here is a picture of a T chuck wagon trailer that was at the Centenial. It was made by members of the East Valley Model T Club, Mesa, Az. Super nice job with lights, refridgeration, cooking stoves, running water and much more. All the bells and whistles any T trailer could have. All self contained and pulled by a Model T. It was built on a modern trailer frame and adapted to the T wheels.chuck wagon
