1954 Kompac Trailer

On my weekend adventures I’m always on the look out for those cool and weird creations that might make you scratch your head. While visiting a gift shop/auto museum up in the White Mountains of NH, I stumbled upon this 1954 Kompac Boat trailer.

Less than 200 of these fiberglass boat trailers were made. The back half of the trailer was crafted to resemble a 1953 Ford. The roof of this trailer was a row boat that was made to come off so that you could do a little fishing while you were on your weekend away for some rest and relaxation.

The only problem that I can see with this creation is that there was very little room inside, you had to crawl into the trailer to catch a good night’s sleep. Speaking of catch, if you had a great day of fishing, you’d better like the smell of fish, because the roof of your vessel was used to catch those fish so that you could eat supper that night while you were away.

All in all very few of these trailers are still known to exist today, and it’s definitely up there on my list of crazy automotive contraptions that I’ve seen.
