I am in the Omaha, Nebr. area. It is an old Fruhauf trailer(before 1950) based on the fittings where the air lines hook up and what I found on the internet. Construction is steel & wood slats covered with steel(before Aluminum)sort of a conversion from the old live-stock trailer. Suspension is single axle leaf springs.

Almost no one showed much interest in it and I don't have a place for the contents right now so looks like I am stuck with it. I would like to find an old Semi-Tractor or truck that I could pull it around with? cleddy

Cleddy, you very well may be correct that it is a Fruehauf but I think it is not. I live in VA so it is not practical for me to look at it but I belong to several antique truck organizations and I will research more.

Yeah I don't know how many were like this but since the air brake fittings have the word "Fruhauf" cast in them that my conclusion for now. The structure inside the steel siding looks just like this picture of the Fruhauf Live-stock trailer I found. Susposedly they were the inventor of the Semi-Trailer and came up with different applications. cleddy
