Trailer Coach Specifications for 1949
TRAILER TOPICS MAGAZINE, February 1949
According to the magazine, all trailer coach manufacturers in 1949 were invited to send their specifications in to TRAILER TOPICS. All those sent in were listed. In addition to the location (address) of manufacture, just basic specifications were included that would enable one to compare values and prices. Some trailers were highlighted in paid advertisements within the magazine and many were not . . .
The magazine promised, “Each manufacturer has a booklet or catalogue with full details of construction, exterior and interior equipment, finish, etc., which will be gladly sent upon request. A letter or post-card addressed to the manufacturer should receive prompt attention.”
The trailer listings included prices of most, overall length, body length, body width, exterior height, interior height, axle, type, exterior coating, weight and drawbar (most of the time).
Here is an example of how specifications were provided (pages 51 – 72):
