The 1952-54 Ford Ranch Wagon was available with a matching Kom-Pak Camper, one of only 6 such campers believed to remain today.

The camper was designed in the same style as the 1952-54 Fords, and they featured a functional, removable fishing boat that doubled as the roof.

A canvas top was installed to go over the steel frame when the boat is removed. The Ford Kom-Pak trailer was to match the 1952-54 Ford line. The trailer borrows its design from the Ford's rear quarters and is built out of fiberglass and wood.

Not just an all-purpose camper, the Kom-Pak was equipped with a boat, affixed to the top of the trailer, a queen-sized bed and an external cooking space.

These trailers were built in the early 1950s, in Medford, Oregon.

The fiberglass Kompak Sportsman trailer with fiberglass boat weighed approximately 1,180lbs.

The trailer came with a built-in worktable, cabinets, 5.4 cubic foot ice refrigerator and 8.4-gallon water tank. Convenient roll-off for one man boat removal. $1,595 Medford, OR.
