Our dad was one of the builders of these. Little Caesar Trailers were built by the Sokolis Brothers in Sebastopol, California. Our family has info if you want to message me here on Good Old RV's. I signed up here so I can do some research myself and found you.
My husband and I would like to pick one up, too. If you know of any available, please let me know.
We actually own the original sheet metal "brake" that was used to bend the metal for the trailers.
Do you resell them?
Have you seen this listing? http://www.tincantourists.com/wiki/doku.php?id=little_ceaser-_sokol...
I updated a little information there tonight.
I'm the youngest of Emil Sokolis' kids, there are many others older than me who may know more - I tend to be the geekiest about the trailers.
My mom and a few of my aunts are still living who helped with the trailers - all the brothers (my dad & uncles) are passed away now. Mom is one of the wives who helped with woodwork, upholstry & sewing. Mom is turning 90, dad passed away 4 years ago and would've been 100 this year.
I'd be happy to share more, including family pictures. I have an original Sokolis Bros. Mfg. Co. postcard with a Little Caesar pic on the front and an ad on the back.
Where are you located? A lot of us in the family are still located in Sonoma County - Santa Rosa, Cloverdale, & Healdsburg. I'm Mom's "Right Hand Girl", so I can ask her about pics. She also has received some online pics of Little Caesars.
Lastly, for now, Mom seems to really enjoy talking about the trailers, and she & Dad got to go see a couple a few years ago, enjoying telling stories and visiting one of the trailers :).
I'm happy to share more or perhaps posting in the appropriate online location would be best. I'm happy to prepare a compiled biography on the business and the trailers through Mom, Aunt's, cousin's & sibling's stories.
Whew! I hope that wasn't too much for this correspondence format!
Did you see this posting on a little Caesar in Sebastopol? I asked Mom more and she said some were made with "bent metal", others with smooth. Here are some nice pics - all original, only new curtains! Wow!
I'm also contacting one of my brothers to see if he has more pics and going through some of Mom's older pics, too.
Hey, I have a little 10 footer! Just joined the community. Not original, but still pretty cool. Check out my pics on my page.
so proud of my Little Caesar! Most of my re-do was just decorative. Original stove was replaced with a sm. fridge, but with tiny microwave and elec. skillet that is ok. I have many photos if interested. Prize possession is a copy of the original ad for these babies, so I am so happy to have found your site! Would love more info on the family Nancy! Photos, etc. Part of the beauty to me is how these were a family project.
ANyone know where to find a VIN on a little Caesar?
