1936 Schult Sportsman

This is a well known and much beloved 1930s trailer, one of the pillars of the Southern California vintage trailer since that has all come together. A regular feature at Pismo and The Modernism Show, this trailer was bought by Todd and Kristin Kimmell out of long time storage just outside of Philadelphia 18 years ago as part of their then growing collection at Lost Highways Archive & Research Library. Partnered with John Agnew at Funky Junk Farms in SoCal, this Schult has served as a visual centerpiece of the FJF collection since then.

Of the enormous number of trailers produced in the 1930s, note that there are only a handful still with us. That has to do with the nearly universal use of Masonite for the trailer exteriors which eventually buckled with the weather. The previous owner of our Schult caused it to be reclad in corrugated metal, and whoever did the work was a proper craftsman in metal.

I did interview the second Mrs. Wilbur Schult back in the early 1990s and was gifted much from her for the archive, but as we didn't own this Schult at the time, it didn't come up in conversation.

Whoever purchases our Schult must have an appreciation for its unrestored, completely original condition. Sure, fine tune this or that detail, but as it sits now, just entering in and relaxing is an all embracing vintage experience, and a damned romantic one, as well!
