it has a round axle - 5 lug 16" rims - and only 4 covered wagon bow recepticles used for the enclosed cargo? 2 on each side.

Not sure what kind it is but it is not a Spen. The stake holders are not the same, the axle is wrong, tailgate, and basic shape of the trailer does not match

It's a cool one what ever it is! Your local DMV might be willing to inspect it, and after finding no numbers or markings, agree to register it as "home/shop built" and apply their own number.
'46 (or'47) BT3C (X2)
'97 Pribbs M105A3
'66 Johnson M416
'91 Kasel M101A2 (on M116A2E1 chassis)
'93 Kasel M101A2
'85 Parkhurst M101A2 (soon to be a teardrop camper)
'67 Johnson M762

OK ~ I finally had a day open to spend at the DMV. The DMV found a number located on the front left tongue of the frame. The number is: DR949929T
 
They ran a vehicle history report. The history report states that it is a 1942 Spen...?? right...???

Looks like your trailer is special!

SPCNS and BTM are explained in this doc.

By both your's and Russ' definitions it would be either "home made" or "made from parts" by someone other than the manufacturer of the parts. Could be constructed by a specialty firm from sourced parts.

Rhino lining is up to you, I don't like it because it's such a pain to remove if at some future point in time you want to modify or weld something onto the trailer.

I've seen the style/type before but I do not know the manuf.
 
Its not home built or reconstructed, I'll bet it was the easiest to do to get it registered at the time.

I took these rims off yesterday. cleaned them up and painted them.
 
QUESTION - WHAT ARE THESE WORTH? $$ ??
I have been looking online, and can't find them. No comparison.
