This 1917 Cozy Camp-Mobile was designed to be towed by the Model T and had a tow speed of 30mph. The Cozy can sometimes be seen on display at boat and RV shows. The photo was originally uploaded with permission by forum member Jack Hammond.

I'll bet it was Ron, although a very long way from the relative luxurious tent trailers, travel trailers, or fifth wheels available today.

Tom,

It looks sort of like a budget version of a sheep herders camp wagon.  :)

Actually... It is not that much different than today's tent trailers... NO "kitchen" but then when I used the Apache Tent Trailer I almost never used the kitchen (other than the sink for washing dishes) anyway.... Did most of my cooking outdoors.

Padded "matresses" are an option, of course,  Could be used in the Cozy as well.  Really about the only real difference is the tires

If I can figure out how to do it I'll post a picture I took on the way home from Quartzsite

Go to the head of the class John. Your photos came out just fine. I'm not sure how either of us would fit in that trailer  ???

Posting was easy, (The software is kind of clear on that, I've done it before, just forgot how) And I agree.

By the way, if you go to Elkhart and take Route 5 north 2 blocks off Route 6 (one is county one state, Route 6 runs on the north side of the airport, Route 5 runs north FROM the airport) to Jami, turn left, on your left is a place which makes a trailer which looks a lot like that one in the photo,,,,, Only smaller
