How to Build Trailers, incorporating The Australian Caravan Magazine and Log Manual
Author: John D Porter
Printed and published by The National Press Pty Ltd, 34 Lonsdale Street, Melbourne
There is no publication date printed in the book, but the introduction states that it is the sixth edition (with the first edition of The Australian Caravan Magazine and Log Book having been published in January 1935) (p 5). Elsewhere the book refers to "the 1946 camper trailer" (p 58) and "This is 1946, not 1936" (p117). It also includes an advertisement for an "Express Carrier" by the name of Athol Porter - a relative of the author? - "late 2nd AIF" (p 6). Based on these references it seems reasonably to assume that this sixth edition was published in 1946.
