Mark:
That's the heavier trailer similar (or identical) to the Armys Quad .50 trailer. The one we need to find has 16" Jeep tires and rims not 7:00 x 20's with 6 hole Budds like a Deuce. I saw the same page, looking for some Beach master or Beach landing equipment, possibly radar rigs, but all of them are either ship bound, portable or bigger trailer setups. Missile systems might yield a clue as well. My gut feeling is it's a medium genset trailer before some heavier set came out and needed a heavier trailer.
The suspension on these little trailers is really amazing when looked at, sort of a walking beam rig.

Yes, I see the differences now.

I will keep looking!
