Who was first commercial Trailer Builder?
History is unclear - there are two contenders for this title pre-dating World War II:
Inglis Brothers and Abingdons.
Inglis Bros. advertised their semi trailers in 1925. Abingdons claimed they built their first in 1933
It's not known if each advert was their first...
Inglis Bros was incorporated in 1916 and was dissolved in 1942 so there is little known about the.
Abingdon Trailers was a foundation member of TTMF and it's sole owner, Eric May, was our first Life member. In 1964 Rod Steel (Steel Bros) bought all of Eric Mays shares and consequently their import license.
