My Mullin's

I had been searching for a vintage trailer to pull behind my Model "A" for well over a year and a half. My wife had always talked about her father’s home made trailer that her family used when they went camping. She and her siblings painted it like a ladybug back in the seventies. With the upcoming Model A meet in Oshkosh Wisconsin, fast approaching (at least for me to restore something), we decide to ask my father-in-law about his trailer. As he talked and described it, he said it had 1936 wheels, and if we were interest in it we could have it. I thought well, at least it will have vintage wheels. He continued and said, he has only ever seen one other like it. I was excited. Come to find out, stored in my father-in-laws garage since 1977 was a vintage "Mullin's" trailer. Not only was it above and beyond my expectations, it had a family history.
