Glen, one of our readers brought this cycle trailer from the 1940s to my attention as well as this cool blog that is called Modern Mechanix – Yesterday’s Tomorrow Today.
This page is dedicated to trailers and has many cool ideas from the good old days that we can apply to our thinking today.

Cyclist Takes Bed Along in Homemade Trailer
Towing his sleeping quarters behind him in a compact trailer, an eighteen-year-old cyclist of Menominee, Michigan, recently traveled nearly 1,200 miles to Boston, Massachusetts, economically and comfortably. Post cards that he sold to curious spectators paid for his supplies during the fourteen-day journey. Streamline in shape, the sturdy trailer is a homemade product of his own design. He is shown above demonstrating his sleeping quarters to an admiring hotel doorman.
