Does the front or back extend? It would only be good for standing, sleeping would only be possible if you were a little person. Looks a bit like a phone booth or a Porta Pottie.

Being that short would be a nightmare backing up. Looks like the owner already got caught jack knifing too sharp.

World's shortest trailer

Lil Loafers are classic trailers from the 60s that can go for $5000 or more (restored).
About as long as a teardrop, just taller.
I love them!

I'm betting a stove top over an ice box. Bed. Maybe a closet. That was all one got in those days.

Had one back in the 70'. Don't remember it looking quite that small. It had a dinette in back with a bunk for the kids. The kitchen was across the front with sink and burner. There was a small closet across from the door. It had only cold water with a hand pump. I was trying to remember a few days ago, but i think it had gas lights. That's all folks.

Sold it for $600 when the third child came along and we needed more space and hot water. I looked for one a a recent vintage trailer rally, but didn't find any.

Doesn't matter what the inside looks like. I don't think I could make it thru the door without surgery...

I can just imagine how embarrassing it would be to get caught in the door and need to call the fire department with the jaws of life to get me out...

At least at the end of it all, the camper might be a bit longer....

Yep, that's a triple-decker 5th wheel trailer.

I like the simple paint scheme on that Lil Loafer. There just isn't enough wall there to apply all the garish swirly graphics that are so common on more recent models.

I bet you have to sleep standing up in there.

Maybe you could get four of them and hook them together.
