I think the Meteor was hanging by lifting eyes attached to the top side of the hull.

You lost me there for a minute. Underslung has a couple definitions and I'm using this one.
"suspended from the underside of something"
I'm not referring to this one.
"The axle position in relation to the spring needs to be considered before building. The options are “overslung”, where the spring is mounted over the axle, or “underslung” where the spring is mounted under the axle."
Yours, mine and the ad are underslung trailers.

This one appears to be under-slung?  The mine seems over-slung.  Do you know if they made both? Thoughts?

Here is a more likely possibility for what yours may be. Sorry I did not make a note of the date or magazine this came from. 
And it's from Michigan.

The earliest undated catalog I have shows dimensions and a very basic tongue design of a early Holsclaw

The only similarity I see is that it is an underslung trailer. It does fit the time period as I think the boat roadster trailers were made from '46-'53 and were refined through the years. There were other companies that made underslung trailers and I believe some homemade copies. I have one, see my avatar.

That’s both what I’ve been told and what my research seems to confirm. Do you have another thought?  Jim
