There is now a Stevens 1/4 ton cargo trailer in NC. A quick google search told me that Stevens was one the manufacturers that made the trailers most of us are after. Seems that this is probably one of them though there is no picture.

That one could be a steal. Without the picture you'd have to know what a Stevens was to even be interested.

Two more up for sale in El Paso, TX. Same pic used for both ads, but I wouldn't be surprised if the earlier model (says 1954) is a RF instead of the SF pictured.

Auction ends tomorrow.

Thanks for the heads-up! I am going to call my Dad and see if he might be willing to make the drive from Houston for me. If he is willing, I might just have a trailer waiting for me at my parents house when I leave Germany in a few months.

There is one in eastern North Carolina about the middle of highway 58. It has been there for as long as I can remember.

Man, they're going for $280 and $262 with ~15 minutes left. You should just buy both so it makes the trip more worthwhile I'm sure you could sell one to pay for both...

There are currently two in Montana. A square fender and a round fender. They both have triangular topper things on them. 6 days left on both.

The MVPA is an excellent source for these trailers.

Check out the "Events" section for a Vehicle Show and Flea Market. The Flea markets can be HUGE and have trailers, tires, tons of old parts, almost all is WWII, but there is also Korea gear and Nam gear.

http://www.mvpa.org/

In Pennsylvania, there is a huge military surplus warehouse that has lots of old beat up trailers, vehicles and gear. Its near a town called Millersburg, which is 30 minutes west (or so) of Harrisburg. http://www.colemans.com/index.php
