Trying to Identify a trailer by a few pictures

Tim Heintz shows us the difficulty of trying to identify a trailer by one picture.

Here is the trailer that on of our facebook members is trying to identify:

and here is a SMALL example of why you cannot just compare trailers by general appearance….and there are still a dozen other brands he could include in this example.

Tim assured her that her trailer is a 1971 Friendship

No one can identify a trailer like our TCT Southeast Representative Tim Heintz. If you have a trailer that you can’t ID, join our Facebook group and post lots of pictures (exterior and interior) and then let the community assist you.


  1. They also made a Mallard “Duckling” in this same shell. I have a great pic of my father in laws from years ago.

  2. I would love to find out what trailer I have. There is one decal that has a faint outline. I have a 1954 teardrop. It came from Oregon. Any experts out there?

  3. Our Southeast regional rep, Tim Heintz is THE expert in identifying trailers – go to the Tin Can Tourists facebook group and post pictures and Tim will help!

  4. No one knows anything on the trailer I have…It’s registered as a 1966 EXCEL mint condition all original.
