Actually travel/camping trailer. In the early 1950s more people had the urge to travel around the country for

We lived in a trailer like that until I was 7.

I think I see a full sized range and refrigerator as well as three porcelain appliances, not to mention the furniture and a ten foot overhang.

Or Caddy, Chrysler, Buick, but slowly and probably took the southern route around the mountains. Even the smooth I-70 through the Eisenhower tunnel we have, would have been a hell of a challenge. But don't forget Florida up the Eastern Seaboard, up the west coast, and New Orleans to Canada, is pretty manageable.

I live in a 37 foot travel trailer. Not quite as high-end as the one shown, but quite nice and comfortable. I would have preferred the arctic package though. It has better insulation.

This one was pretty well insulated with 3/4 inch wood strips between the ribs and the skin for heat and sound. Of course to use onboard water tanks and plumbing that all has to be protected from cold. My folks would take the truck camper to Florida in the winter, but couldn't fill the water system till at least Georgia.

Wow it would have to be slow since I'd expect those puny tires to melt at anything over about 45mph for more than an hour. That thing had to weigh sooOOO much. Come on, freaken tiled bath!!

In 1950, 45mph was a pretty good clip for traffic.
