Synopsis: Buckle up for a trip back to the days of the classic travel trailers, from the 1910s through the 1960s. Over 260 brilliant color photos capture these original homes-away-from-home in all their details, including views of their interiors. The informative text provides details of the travel trailer's rise, which was fueled by both improving automobiles and roadways. Once the "everyman" had a car and a road, he bought a trailer and took the family camping. Beginning in 1880, horse drawn caravans were used to get away from home. However, when caravans were hitched to cars, the travel trailer was born. "Tin Can Tourism" was all the rage by the 1920s. Shown here are many of the sweet results of trailer camping over the decades, including early tent trailers, Hammer Blow's honeymoon trailer, the Zeppelin-shaped Road Chief, the ever popular Airstream, and many more. To sweeten the deal, these trailers are shown with some wonderful classic cars.
