Build quality

From what I can see the U-Haul trailers are very interestingly built with two-piece bodies but not like a Scamp or Casita where the bodies are formed of a top and bottom half. Instead it seems the trailers are made of a left and right half with an aluminum “rail” type of trim piece that covers the split down the middle. 

The bodies were two layers with an inner and outer layer that featured an insulating air gap between the layers. According to Jim Garrecht, a long-time aficionado of these trailers, they were “built to survive the abuse of renters.” This is part of the reason they’re so collectible today, they were just built really sturdily. 

Inside much of the surface is finished fiberglass but a large strip along the trailer’s center section was unfinished and had been covered in a carpeted strip about a foot wide. 

Interestingly the U-Haul trailers sported an independent torsion axle suspension which provided a great ride and goes back to their build quality. The interior cabinets were originally an olive green interior made of plywood base over which the olive plastic was molded. The tables were originally made of fiberglass and, reportedly, these can get chipped over time. 

One of the more advanced features of the trailers was the use of a 15 watt solar panel on the roof to keep the battery maintained between rentals. This is a pretty smart idea, especially when these trailers might sit at a rental facility for a while. 

There was also a swamp cooler in some of these which works in dryer climates but where the humidity is already high, they do little. But it’s still an interesting idea. 

Other fiberglass trailers

There is a lot of similarity between the U-Haul trailers and the Burro trailers and rumors persist that U-Haul simply bought the molds when Burro went out of business. Looking at the two trailers they are very, very similar right down to being built with a large vertical seam and carpeting along the interior roof and walls where that seam was. 

The timeline doesn’t really support this, though as U-Haul built their trailers from 1984-85 and Burro continued building trailers until 1986.

Tales and lore

There are unsubstantiated stories that some of the managers who worked for U-Haul at the time were asked to take one of these trailers so U-Haul didn’t have to pay for their lodging while they were out and about. 

Most of all U-Haul campers once had “Property of U-Haul” markings on the windows, frame, propane tank, rims, and even the tires. Although once sold off, the frame was stamped “NOT” before the “Property of U-Haul” on the frame. 

Collectibility 

One of the more difficult items to replace is the taillight lens which was unique to these little campers. Otherwise most things can either be found or reproduced rather easily. I would imagine that, if it hasn’t been done yet, someone’s going to copy an original taillight lens and use a 3D printer to make exact replicas sooner rather than later. 

According to Jim Garrecht, U-Haul is well aware of the enthusiasm for these trailers and has even been helpful in sourcing parts from time to time. For example, when the company discovered a trove of parts in a warehouse for these they made them available to the group. 

“U-Haul has been incredibly supportive,” said Garrecht. 

There is also a very active group of enthusiasts for U-Haul trailers on Facebook. 

Since the trailers were built to withstand the abuse of renters they’re tough little buggers and many of the components originally installed continue to function well. For example, Jim Garrecht told me that when he turned on the AC unit in a vintage U-Haul it still worked. Garrecht still finds that the original 15 watt solar panel and charging system on his trailer still function as new. 

Interest in these trailers has also increased recently as they are being “discovered” through various social media posts and owners sharing their ownership experience. 

U-Haul

At the time these were built U-Haul was still owned by the initial founder, Leonard Schoen. But it wasn’t a good time as Schoen had deeded all but two percent of his holdings in the company to his 12 children from various marriages. 

By the mid 1980s U-Haul had expanded into renting all sorts of things, from paint sprayers to travel trailers as this TV commercial from the era demonstrates. Thus, in 1986, two of the Schoen children staged a hostile takeover of the company which resulted in a family dispute so extreme there was violence at the board meetings.

This Rare Fiberglass Camper Trailer Used To Be A U-Haul Rental

Image for article titled This Rare Fiberglass Camper Trailer Used To Be A U-Haul Rental

The 1980s were a wild time for U-Haul. Customers could rent everything from movies and ATVs to paint sprayers from the rental giant. But one of the coolest rentals from U-Haul’s past is this, the U-Haul CT13 Get-A-Way Camper.

Fiberglass travel trailers were everywhere in the 1970s and 1980s. Countless manufacturers tried their hands at making a molded fiberglass RV. U-Haul didn’t want to miss out on the action and created its own pair of campers, the VT16 Vacation Traveler and CT13 Get-A-Way Camper.

These trailers are rare, which makes this 1985 U-Haul CT13 on Craigslist pretty special. How rare? Exact production numbers aren’t known, but owners believe that there are fewer than 2,000 of them in the world.

Details on the CT13 and VT16 are scant, with the majority of what’s known gathered by enthusiastic owners of the things. I covered some of the history of the campers when I wrote about all of the weird things you could rent from U-Haul in the 1980s:

According to information gathered by U-Haul camper owners, these trailers were developed by a U-Haul subsidiary called Rec-Vee World. The units were produced for only a short time from 1984 to 1985. Per VIN plates and owners, the trailers were made by the Dayton Trailer Manufacturing Company in Ohio, Youngstown Trailer Manufacturing in Ohio, and by U-Haul in Arizona. The CT13 and VT16 were 13 feet long and 16 feet long and both units had the standard fare of RV equipment like fridges, sinks, and furnaces. However, if you wanted a bathroom you had to step up to the VT16 and its bathroom didn’t have a shower.

Like the company’s other trailers, these campers were built to be sturdy to withstand the abuses of rental use. The bones of the CT13 were a circular steel frame or a square tube steel frame. The design was meant to be easy to tow and the U-Haul CT13 weighs in at about 1,200 pounds, towable by just about any car.

U-Haul rented these campers from 1984 to 1992. Thankfully, the trailers were sold off to the public instead of being destroyed; making them one of the few types of retired U-Haul equipment that you’re allowed to own. The 1990s weren’t a kind time for fiberglass camper manufacturers and most closed down, leaving behind only the more popular manufacturers like Boler (now Scamp) and Casita.

This U-Haul CT13 has a delightful mix of original parts and a few upgrades. The exterior still has the original U-Haul graphics and its circular tube frame looks intact.

Inside, the olive colored interior remains intact and much of the U-Haul-branded bits and pieces remain.

But it’s not entirely vintage as a modern refrigerator and sink make up the upgrades in the kitchen. The olive-colored cabinet doors appear to be painted in silver to match the kitchen appliances. And yep, that stove is powered by propane! It’s unknown if the camper’s furnace is present.

The combination dining room and bed has what appears to be some more modern cushions, as does the couch on the other end of the camper.

The camper’s total length is 13 feet while the interior is 10 feet-long. The CT13 was designed to sleep up to three with the dining table bed in back and the couch that turns into a bunk bed up front.

Many of these U-Haul campers were gutted or completely repainted, so it’s always awesome to see one in close to original condition. U-Haul trailers exploded in value in recent years. Back in 2018 I saw them in original good condition for as low as $3,000, but those days appear to be gone.

This CT13 comes in at $13,500 on Craigslist in Tustin, California.

If you've recently moved or helped a friend move to a new location, chances are you've heard of the company U-Haul. The do-it-yourself solutions company, which was founded in 1945, offers a variety of convenient services for your moving needs. Either you rent a truck from them in differing sizes, or a trailer that your own vehicle can tow to your destination. The company even offers storage services, as well as containers if you're moving outside the country.

However, did you know that U-Haul used to offer rental services for just about anything? If not, you're not alone, but here's an old TV commercial to remind us of U-Haul's past.

Yes, even TVs and VHS players are available for rent at U-Haul before, and among the things that the company offered were fiberglass trailers that the company made. One of those trailers is currently up for sale on Craiglist. According to Jalopnik, this particular unit for sale is called a CT13, which has a body that measures 13 feet long and a cabin that's 10 feet long. It weighs just around 1,200 pounds, making it a great trailer for off-grid adventures using just about any type of vehicle.

It's hard to find information about this trailer but some details shared around the interwebs suggest that the company sold these small lightweight trailers to the public in the '90s.

The unit for sale comes with the original U-Haul graphics on the outside. The seller says that it's a rare collector's item in limited numbers, made in 1985. Inside, it comes with a two-burner stove that uses propane, along with a small refrigerator, a sink, and two LED lights. It can sleep up to three persons through some convertible furniture, while it appears that most parts of the cabin are still in their original condition.

If you're looking for a retro-looking, lightweight trailer to haul, this could be the one that you're looking for. It doesn't come cheap, though, as the listing on Orange County Craigslist shows a $13,500 asking price.
