I am going to make a few assumptions here. I notice that the trailer is missing running lights. All I could think of was that this is a Canadian built trailer. This trailer was found in one of the bordering states which may add support to my theory.
I am thinking it’s a 1964 to 1967 based on that ducktail in the back and the larger jalousies. As far as the manufacturer, I am stumped, maybe some of our members from the north can help on this one.
But, maybe it’s not Canadian...
As far as the VIN, check the side of the tongue. Usually the VIN is on the top of the tongue near the back of the coupler. It can also be on the side of the tongue near the back of the coupler. Generally, it would be on the curbside (right side of the tongue. It can be hard to find with some trailers. If the area is covered with paint, take some paint remover and apply to those areas and gently scrape the paint away. If it's rusty, use a wire brush. Don't use a drill with cup brush on it. That's a little brutal for this.

I'm guessing 63; it's got the real wood interior still. It reminds me of an Aloha but pry not the exact brand. The 3 old light locations at the top front/rear tell me it was a higher end trailer back in the day. Do some research on "vintage trailer images" and look for the quilted metal pattern, wheel well shape, little bump out at the back and the unique groove on the cabinetry inside. You'll find it. It's a matter of taking the time to study...
