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!
