This stuff is nifty. I haven't seen any of these pictures before. This one looks very nice, but in general the interior designs are psychotic....

Messy Nessy is interesting - I have used up a lot of time looking at this site.

I was in Palm Springs during Modernism Week a couple of years ago. The have a vintage trailer show:

I don't recall the exact number of vintage trailers on display--best guess is 50-75. Many vintage riveted aluminum trailers that are no longer made. Lots of lovingly restored trailers with color matched restored tow vehicles. There were also a number of trailers from the 40's, 50's and 60's that were unrestored and amazing to see. The owners love to show their trailers and many are still actively using their vintage trailers for camping. If you are in the area during Modernism Week, it's worth a visit.

Timing is good... It follows modernism week in palm springs, when special events geared to fans of mid mod architecture and design include special small group tours of mid mod homes.

Fans of mid mod homes and trailers could spend a couple weeks there...

John, thanks for the link. I love vintage trailers (though I love the modern amenities of our Oliver!)

Isn't it fun to see how everything old is new again? The poptop teardrop could be a precursor of the Safari condo Alto. The campinia must have been an early relative of the T@b... Tabbert waggenwerks?

 

At any rate, a great way to use a few hours on a chilly winter night..
