|(Heilite) Hi, About a year and a half ago I bought a Heilite single wheel tent trailer from the original owner in Sacramento.
He originally bought it directly from Heilite in Lodi ca in 1963. Trailer is in good shape but the tent needs some patching here and
there. When I bought the trailer the friendly previous owner gave me everything he had with and about the trailer. This includes some
original brochures and flyers but also the sale order form. Another interesting flyer shows a special they were offering due to an
overstocked warehouse! It offered new big #1500 replacement tents for $69.- regularly priced at $167.50! (picture that! a new tent for
69 bucks!) It also shows that the #1500 tent is a bigger version of the earlier standard tents and measures 7 1/2' from the side of the
trailer. You might already know all off this but I didn't know they had smaller tents in the early days. I think I have the 1500 I'll
measure it the next time I pop it up. Anyway I have been meaning to send you all off this since I got the trailer! ... well better late
than never I guess. Hope some of this is new and interesting to you. If you see a white 63 dc with a Heilite single wheel good chance
I'll be around! take care. everhard (ave)|

|(Tralette) Hello, I've come across your
site trying to research the Tralette. Attached is a scan of one page of a
brochure I have in my possession. Interesting! It would seem
the Tralette (at least the two-wheel version) was intended for either motorcycle
or auto use, dependent on the hitch. The single wheel, was, of course, for
towing behind an auto. Cheers,

|(Heilite Trailers Inc.) HI, My dad did PR for Heilite in
the mid 60s and I have several of their brochures, an article he wrote about an extensive trip to Mexico we took and lots of high quality promotional photos
used in brochures and so on. I really appreciate what you are doing and want to help. I took one down Baja
myself in 1969 on lots of dirt roads - they're indestructible! Found a two wheeler in great shape with
canvas that had only been used five times in 40 years!! And the best part was they gave it to me. Needs
new mattresses and travel cover but small price to pay. Sent by

|This brochure is from a trailer that looks very similar to the
Calberlah and appears to be built just for VW bugs.
|I recently found this on E-bay. It's a postcard from
at least '59 as the two cars behind the wagon pulling the trailer, are both '59's. The trailer is as of yet,
unidentifiable, but appears to be the size and shape of a Stolz
|(Heilite) Purchased this
one page Heilite ad from a vendor on E-bay. The stamp says Bradley's in Pasadena
California. The date of the ad is unknown, but guessing from the cars, I'm
guessing '55 or '56.

through a thrift store, about a year ago I came across this book. Along with a bunch of vintage car

dealer. The car is a 62 ford station wagon. This one is a good read. Submitted
1961 Heilite Parts Manual. 13 pages of parts for the various models. The first page is a letter that was
included in the Parts Manual, this is a great read. The rest of the pages are the actual parts manual
Believe this is from around '57 as the car in the adds is a '57 Chevy. While this isn't a Single Wheel
trailer or trailer of any kind, it is from the Heilite company and is a very cool accessory
