For the first year of its life the make was called the Keene Steamobile, reflecting the fact that the manufacturer, the Trinity Cycle Manufacturing Company, was located in Keene, New Hampshire. The vehicle was similar to many light steamers made at this time but did have an automatic burner control that operated if the boiler pressure became too high, this being regarded as an important safety feature. In February 1901 the business was under new ownership and restyled the Steamobile Company of America. Selling Steamobile runabouts at $850 when the comparable Locomobile was $100 less created surplus stock and the Company soon fizzled out.
