I'm trying to determine the model/length of this Kit Companion trailer from the 1960's. Anyone into vintage trailers that might recognize it?
Here is the link:

Not sure on "model", but looks to be a single axle about 16-18' in length.

I remember that era of trailer well as a kid. Most had the propane lantern built in the rig! Looks to be a Ford Wagon towing it with a WD hitch setup. That's how it was done back then and no one cared about it's GVWR or "tow rating" [emoticon]

Our family's 1960/70s TV towed more like my current 2021 RAM 1500 Eco Diesel than any TV I've owned since. It was a huge rear wheel drive full body on frame beast weighing about 4500 lbs. It had a simple reliable three speed automatic tranny, traction lock rear differential and the biggest V8 GM had at the time. It had lots of torque, thats for sure! A 1971 Olds Vista Cruiser with dealer installed trailer options: heavy duty transmission cooler, brake controller, receiver type hitch, trailer lighting plugs. It comfortably towed Dad's big old 7,000 lbs Lyman boat and a travel trailer. The fact is it cruised with a heavy trailer hooked up. The car was more like today's pickup in fact. It was heavy, well planted and except for the awful gas mileage, you'd never know you were towing anything.
