For Sale,
United Manufacturing of Williamstown MI classic "canned ham" style trailer. 12'. No Title. Not sure of the year or model, but it is almost a perfect twin to the 1948 Lintzcraft I once owned, so I strongly suspect it is of that vintage.

The exterior of this camper is in remarkably good shape, very straight with little damage. Also the original glass marker lights are there, as well as the taillights. Just as my Lintzcraft did, this trailer must have had an oil or gas heater just to the rear of the forward door and it had a vent pipe through the roof. Some time ago, someone removed the unit, but left the hole in the roof open, so water was able to get in and do damage to interior wood and floor. The original gas range and refrigerator are still there but not in great condition. The entire interior will likely need to be gutted and re done. I am just beginning to clean out and evaluate further.

However, I recently towed this trailer 250 miles, at speeds up to 60 mph, and it towed perfect. Arrow straight, well balanced, solid, no issues at all. I have no idea how old the tires are, but was told it hadn't moved in 30 years prior to me towing it. 5.50 / 16" 6 ply (quite weather checked but held 40 psi just fine), on six lug wheels. Hubs and bearings stayed cool all the way.

This is definitely a project, but also definitely a worthy one. The desirable size, (towed easily with my 1/2 ton Chevy), highly desirable classic canned ham style, and solid towing.
