Trailers

Trailers are not usually aesthetically pleasing but they do add play value to a collection of diecasts. Diecast ranges with many farm vehicles like Siku, Britain’s and Corgi have a large number of trailers.

The Matchbox 1-75 had 6 trailers in its line up in 1969 and 1970.

I no longer have any of those trailers, though I had a few as a kid. These are the trailers I have now:

Jeep and boat trailer (Siku), canoe trailer (Maisto), lion cage trailer (Majorette), Caravan Trailer (Matchbox)

The Jeep and Boat Trailer came in a Siku twin pack. The Matchbox Travel Trailer came in an “outdoor” 5 Pack, along with a Chevrolet Suburban with tow hook.

The Chevrolet Suburban looks good towing the Majorette Lion Cage Trailer, which I found at Drybridge Market.

Back in 1969/70 many Matchbox cars had tow hooks even supercars like the Iso Grifo.
