Oh, thanks :) But it won't help a lot... I know about 40 manufacturers of funeral trailers, but this model is new to me. Reminds a bit of the Faulenbach trailers, but I'm rather sure it isn't. Could be a locally built one-off, like many of these vehicles.

That company Faulenbach? Link to "www.karosseriebau-faulenbach.de"

But the pic is from a "Polizeiruf 110" of the deepest DDR-times. :??:

Are DDR-VEB's known, which had produced funeral-trailers?

OMG I didn't notice that it is such kind of trailer. :wow: I've to admit that I've never seen or heard about such kind of... "caravans". Especially that this one looks so ordinary.

Yes, that's the company I was referring to. :) But as I wrote, I don't think they were responsible for this trailer.

Regarding funeral trailers in the GDR: I've seen a few, but all of them were either home-built (by funeral homes) or mild conversions of standard trailers etc. For example, a friend of mine owns a one-off which was made in Brandenburg in the 1950s. I never heard of a VEB that offered them commercially and I doubt there ever was anything like this. Funeral trailers are mainly (not solely!) a West German phenomenon of the post war era. There must have been built some funeral trailers in the Berlin area, but I'm still researching for more information and a coachbuilders' name.

@Weasel1984: They're even rare in Germany nowadays. I currently own this one and have owned two others in the past. ;)

OMG! That's hilarious. :lol: Reminds me a bit of the "Janus-arsed" Renault 6 funeral trailer I once saw. And believe it or not: This is not a Photoshop, but real. :D

atom, if you find the genuine picture - can you post it somewhere? :)

I saw something similar, also made from two Volvos, but it was some kind of real caravan if I remeber well. Anyway it reminds me this Volvo-Saab, from your last message (3rd pic): /movie_1004509214-Monster-Garage-(Sweden).html

I would choose the second one.
Sorry I'm not an expert on this, perhaps it has a big value for the collectors - don't get me wrong etc. :D But the first one is really scary. It looks like a cargo/goods trailer. :D

Not at all! :lol: It's almost worthless, but it's a definite unicum and I felt pity for it when I saw it rotting in a barnyard, so I bought it for peanuts. Now it continues rotting in my garage...

Weasel1984 wrote But the first one is really scary. It looks like a cargo/goods trailer. :D

Yes, definitely. The entire body is made from (rotten) wood and it was built by a carpenter in 1955 for his own use. I'm fully aware it's totally hideous. :D The second one was way better, but I sold it when I found out that I had not a single car with a trailer-hitch back then.

About trailers made from cars, a "common" one in France/Belgium is the R4 Fourgonnette or R4 F4. I remember that I saw several when I was kid, and there is one that I still see from time to time in Brussels.

Too bad, I found the thread on the forum where I first saw them but the pictures don't work any more, I have mailed the poster so if we're lucky he still has them.

Probably the commonest van in the UK to undergo this kind of surgery is the Mini van, but I've seen Morris Minors and small Ford vans too.

@Animatronixx: der Bau von Anhängern fiel in der DDR unter den Bereich "Herstellung von Konsumgütern". Zur Konsumgüterherstellung wurden oft "fachfremde" Betriebe der Schwerindustrie "verdonnert".

So hat mein Schwager einen komplett aus Aluminium gebauten Gepäckanhänger vom "VEB Fahrtreppen- und Aufzugbau Berlin". Eine kostenlose Zugabe beim Kauf eines 1970er Skoda 1000 MB. :)

The most trailers, selfmade of cars, I've seen in Germany, were based on the Citroen 2 CV and the Trabant, VW Beetle, too. A time ago there was a story in an oldtimer-magazine about a trailer, based on a Jaguar E. The owner had paid a lot of money for its restoration. It should exactly fit to his real E-Type.
