Trailer Travel showcases the rich visual history of America s enduring fascination with life on the road. Beautifully reproduced color and black-and-white images culled from public archives and the private collections of passionate trailerites vividly document the travel trailer s storied past. This engaging volume offers a look at motor-camping trips in the early 1900s, the unparalleled innovations in trailer design during the thirties, rare and unique trailer models and interiors, and an extensive array of bold and graphic promotional material, literature, and postcards that illustrate the undeniable attraction of living on wheels. Trailer Travel is the perfect book for the fan of the open road and the fervent collector of trailer ephemera.

Review: Trailer Travel: A Visual History of Mobile America

User Review  - Susan - Goodreads

I enjoyed looking at the visual information included in this book. If you enjoy camping or own a travel trailer this is a fun book to look through. The text is a little generic but gives you a sense of what you are looking at. Read full review

Review: Trailer Travel: A Visual History of Mobile America

User Review  - Darlene Moore - Goodreads

A fun but very dated outlook on the first trailer explorers. A fun read, but the photos, illustrations and some of the writing will bring you back to the 50's era Read full review
