1957 Abe Lincoln is just the right size for us.

Orig unrestored.  Added the baby moon hubcaps after this photo was taken.


But the Greatest feature is the slimp dolly on the tongue of the trailer.

with the axel so far back on the frame, I can not image what the tongue weight would be, but with the slimp dolly the tires take care of the front end weight and the quick release coupler is magic.  I simply back into the general area of our camping spot and my wife uncouples Abbey from the vehicle and can push Lil abbey all around on her own, until she finds the perfect spot.  It trailers wonderfully down the highway.  Even across South Dakota on I90 in August.




PS  Thank you Paige Bridges for your most recent work of art.

My wife and I also have a 57 Lil' Abe, but ours does not have the rear window or an air conditioning unit. I wonder if there were different window configuration options?

Awesome cool girl is Abbey.  Our girls are "of an age" so this newbie will be watching your blog for pointers.  At present I am looking for a porta potty to pop into the closet.  Any ideas?

We believe this window to be original.  another photo can be see in the 3rd photo down in the blog above. IMG_1027%20%281024x768%29.jpg  It lines up perfectly with the front window for great rear visability while trailering.

We have a 1957 Lincoln. When we got ours, it already had an air conditioner installed in the back. Can you tell if the back window is orginal to the camper? Is it a rounded window?
