Anyone know what kind of trailer this is??

I have pics on my page. Can't post right here for whatever reason.
It's 16' single axle with the door near the back. Fully loaded. It has a gas light above the stove, (that's gotta be old!) There's a drop down cover over the front windows but no back windows. As of yet I haven't found the Vin yet. No papers, no tags, no nothing to identify it. I can't even find a pic of it online!
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

Thanks,
Tammy

Never seen a residential roof added like that before. Is it top heavy?

I can almost guarantee the axle and springs are grossly overloaded.

This thing was on a river lot for a long time. Someone added that roof but it has actually kept the inside dry all these years! I don't know how it's put on yet and I'm actually afraid to look! It seems to pull good but it's probably really heavy! I've only had it a week. Still trying to find out what it is! Haa!

Yes, I'm concerned about that, too! Looks like original old bias ply tires! ....guess that means that the original air is still in them!! LOL!!

It was stationary on a river lot for years. The roof actually saved the inside but I'd like to take it off later because of the weight of it but possibly leave it and lighten it!

Haaa...yeah tiny house! I'm gonna leave the roof for now but that camo has got to go! Once it's painted, it will look like a little house! Shasta? It has a gas light over the stove...thought that would date it but I still can't find out exactly what it is! I'll be looking on the tongue for a Vin # this week. I like the door at the back though!

So you found it down by the river. Maybe the late Chris Farley was the former owner.

Shasta or Aristocrat would be my guess.
