Well, if the frame and tongue color is original, so is the rear bumper, as the entire metal frame has the same patina. The driver side of the bumper has a little hinged door to store whatever.
It's amazing how good the complete underside of this trailer is. Minor surface rust and the perimeter where the floor fastens to the walls are excellent.
The sellers were the 2nd owners and knew the original owners. It had been stored for 11 years in their large garage with all their other toys and only pulled out for use. I was told it was never parked on open dirt or grass. I see no reason to dispute that claim. What a catch!!
I am going to post this over in the Vintage forum to see if I can get more information about how it looked in an original configuration.
Also, back in the day, trailer makers only made and sold pretty much by region. So, since Gem was a Michigan manufacturer, information may be minimal. Hope not...
