Found this ad on The Samba. The seller was selling
the Barn Door Single Cab and Allstate trailer together as a package and wouldn't seperate. Here is the
info relevant to the trailer "The Trailer is a stock 1955 Allstate singlewheel. I think original paint. no
big dinks, no rust, rolls fine. rare and hard to find that early."
|The yellow allstate trailer that you have pictured on the top
of "allstate page #1" was purchased by me on ebay. the trailer was located about 40 miles
northeast of touson, AZ I had to pick it up at the guy's house ( i traveled from camarillo, CA ) the
trailer is quite nice with a little surface rust and minor body dings. i will restore to perfect condition
for towing behind my 65 bug conv. i will send you pictures when i am done. don't hold your breath as i
must restore the car first! thank you brad millard
|Found this ad on ebay. "Here is a one wheel trailer made by allState the rubber is shot,
there is a little rust but not bad, it is not rusted through that I can see, have a title for it, this
thing was made to bolt on the bumper of your car, this thing is a vintage piece. it has a box that is
about 4' by 3' and about a foot deep, there appears there was a cover at one time but that is gone now.
The outside dimension is 52"x39" and is 10" deep, there are no holes, if you look close in the pic it is
full of water, there are a few dings in it, it weighs about 200# it will have to go truck freight, it has
a 8" tire on it, this thing is not perfect by any means. This still has the tag on it, and I believe it is
from sears from the 40's-60's
|This old trailer, I think was sold through Sears. Has original tag on front marked: "Dunbar Kapple
Inc" Bed meausures: 53" X 40". No tailgate, frame looks to be in good condition underneath. Arms are
solid 1 inch square steel. Bed has some rust (see pictures). Has stainless steel plates on each side can
be taken off. My buddy Mark sent me the link from The Samba
|Allstate Trailer. Located in Logan Utah only about an hour from Salt Lake. the body is in
decent shape. Only a few dents and dings on the side of the bed. The most impressive part to me was the
underside. Barely any if to no rust at all. It's from California and thankfully hasn't been touched by the
salty winters here that cause havoc on cars here.
|Previously owned by Ronnie of

|Submitted by JP Henriksen who owns the Dunbar Kapple. His Friend Micah found the trailer
about 1/2 mile from his house for $50. Owned by Micah.
|I'm not real sure where these pics came from.
|All that is missing is the box. I haven't yet located the hitch parts. The tire is
Allstate too. The trailer is located in Wichita, KS. Owned by Geoff
|I found this Allstate in Oklahoma yesterday. I will be buying it to sell. Owned by Craig
Baum who also owns a Coffman.
|Carl bought his trailer from a neighbor, it looks like the one from "Aaron of
Santa Rosa". It is blue with a white "Allstate" block letter front and back. The number on
the Sears tag is 287 61960. I put it into temporary storage before I could get the digital camera but I
did take a couple of pics of the original bumper mounts. Hopefully I can get it out of storage soon and
give you better pics. I paid $70 for it. The old man who had it on his driveway for 15 years (he used it
regularly) told me he had tons of offers on it when he didn't want to sell but I was the only one who
replied to his "for sale" sign. Lucky break I guess. Looking forward to seeing more Carl.
|We recently traveled to Denver,CO from Northern Virginia to pick up 1956 Allstate trailer
from our friend Scott. The trailer is in great shape and has no rust. We also have the original title from
Illinois as well as the identification plate. We got it at a great price for only $800 and restoring costs
will be minimal. This trailer will be towed by our 1957 Oval. The trip out to pick it up was great and
definitely worth it. Owned by Robert and Heather|
Here is an update on our Allstate Trailer. It is now fully restored and we are attaching pictures for you
and your website. This is our Allstate trailer done and mounted to the 1957 VW Bug. It looks great. We
want to say thanks to your website and to Jimmy Campbell for the paint and body work. As you can see, we
mounted two 1950's stop lights on the rear to give it that great 50s look. Thanks for including us on your
|1956 Allstate Tag Along Trailer. I bought this from the second owner's daughter. Included
is the original canvas tarp with tie downs, and original bumper attachments. It attaches to a bus bumper
perfectly without any drilling. The trailer has the original Allstate tire that is perfect. It has been
painted several times and there is a fair amount of surface rust. The worst rust is along the back lip on
top of the trailer. The bed is nearly perfect. Still has the Allstate tag on the front of the bed. Pulls
like a dream behind a bus. Owned by Scott
|Well this is the trailer that is somewhat responsible for this site. Back a few years ago
I saw this bug and Allstate and thought it was a beautiful combo. It was the first singlewheel trailer I
had ever seen. I didn't take any pics of it then as I didn't have any plans to build a site. Well it was
at the Classic 2002 and still just as nice as I remembered. I didn't catch up with the owner, so if it is
yours, drop a line. Featured in Oct '99 VW Trends. Anybody have a copy?
|From The Samba. The Ultament
accessory!! this trailer is complete with ID tag. The main body has only minor dents & dings, but has not
been wrecked! Has some small rust holes in the floor bottom (see pic). The rest is in excellent condition!
Missing: one side chrome trim piece but can easily be re-made. The original is color blue & white, appears
be the same color of a mid 60's Bus.
