Just found it

This is a picture of my 1973 15ft (probably an actual 17ft) Glenelle towed by my 1990 Ford Aerostar. This trailer weighed in at 2,700Lbs dry weight.
Wow !!! and this little 3.0Ltr V6 never bogged down once. Weight distribution and electric brakes. Aside from being a heavy trailer I wish I knew then what I know now. No Google back then

That looks like it is about the same layout as the T-1550.

Looks nice and clean. Picture taken obviously after 1989.

Thanks
I'm thinking back and the pic was probably taken around 1992 to 1993, maybe 94 on a film camera and then I scanned a lot of old snapshots and kept them on my hard drive. I've tried to keep anything I ever owned in as top notch condition as I could, including waxing my trailer when I waxed my vehicles. Size wise, I think you're correct about the T1550 aspect. Wish we still had that trailer (just based on it's size). But the Sunline trailers have the Glenelles beat by a long shot. IMO The Sunline series have a lot of other brands beat, just by shear quality, design and options. Like anything else in life: you look after it and it will look after you

That is a cute trailer.

We had a 92 Aerostar, I think it was the same engine. Used it to tow boats, campers, three kids, etc. I loved that thing. After 12 years it started nickel and diming us with repairs, finally the steering column wiring all went out. We traded it in on an Astro Van, which we use now to tow.

I still have my 90 Aerostar but it's parked behind a barn at my brother's farm. It was in mint condition just prior to taking it off the road, as you say it was nickel and diming us too. Two kids, dog and the trailer, great family buggy. The longer I think about restoring it, the more it's rusting and falling apart. male separation anxiety syndrome ????

Awesome picture and even more awesome that you still have your Aerostar. Don't see many of them around anymore. My grandpa had an '86 in two tone brown, but I don't remember much of it because he traded it in on a Villager shortly after I was born. His had those same wheels. Love to see what your Aerostar looks like now.
