|Owned by Brad Calvert. I'm in
australia, and have a locally made one-wheeled trailer, called "Big-Boot
Luggage Carrier" (Boot = US trunk). I bought it about a year ago
(2000) at a garage sale for $A170 = $US80, it's in VGC. I'd never seen
one like it before. I'd never seen one like it before, then just a few months later I met someone who has one
the same, he says he bought it new in 1980, (for areound $500). [Which Brad is
going to send us pics of soon...I hope!!]
|Owned by Barry Hamm. I'll send you some pictures and
more detail later but for the moment. The "Big Boot" or Big Trunk in American were made in
Victoria, Australia up until the 1980's.
It's taken me awhile but here are some more pictures of my trailer.
