They say its better late than never - your post 164, second photo: you are almost right. The equipment is Polish and the vehicles are LKS trailers (lekki konio-samochodowy - light horse-motorised) with long chassis. The idea was that they could be pulled by two horses or by a motor vehicle (typically a Polski Fiat 618 1-tonn truck) with a quick towbar change. However the boats are not pontoons - they are steel sappers' boats (in Poland all engineering troops are called 'sappers'). To make things even more confusing, the sappers' boats could also be used as pontoons at a push. A trailer could carry two boats (as in this case) or one boat and an outboard motor.
While I wouldn't want to stake my head on it, I am fairly sure that the boat in Carius' post 672 is the Polish sappers' boat in question.
