Overview

Trailerama provides a colorful look into America’s love affair with life on the road. It’s a visual wonderland filled with fascinating and diverse imagery of the travel trailer. From sheet music to greeting cards, board games to the cover of The New Yorker, the travel trailer figured prominently in twentieth century American pop culture. It’s put on grand display in this kitschy celebration culled from the personal collection of author Phil Noyes and all his
“trailerite” buddies.

Phil Noyes has been a television and film producer in Los Angeles for two decades. He wrote and produced the PBS special Mobile America, which uncovered the history of the RV in America. He cowrote the Gibbs Smith book Trailer Travel and also writes a regular column for RV Magazine called “Trailer Tribe.” His current vintage trailer fleet includes a 1948 Aljoa, a 1947 Westwood and a 1953 Star.

Read an Excerpt

This book pays homage to all things vintage trailer, and I hope that all you nontrailerites will find these images as lovely and engaging as I do. I know I am preaching to the choir for those of you who are already in our little “trailer tribe,” but I think you will find some surprises lurking in these pages. There are so many tales to be told about this part of our American pop culture, and I have tried to give a wide overview through all the wonderful images that so many of my friends have graciously loaned for this book. So instead of spending hours perched over dusty tables at swap meets or scouring the Internet, we can all curl up and marvel at the glorious travel trailer. Welcome to Trailerama!
