Galloping Bungalows: The Rise and Demise of the American House Trailer - From homemade wooden boxes on wheels to the sleek, aerodynamic contemporary metal houses, Thornburg presents an entertaining cultural, social, and economic history of the house trailer and its aficionados. Includes great period photos. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.

Ready to Roll: A Celebration of the Classic American Travel Trailer - Americans in search of family oriented domestic travel, safe and inexpensive, are buying trailers and RVs in record numbers. At the same time—with fantasies of Lauren Bacall sipping an extra-dry Gibson against a gleaming metal doorway in Palm Springs and Lucy and Desi's madcap Long, Long Trailer trip—they crave the vanished luxury and quirkiness of antique auto trailers. Those simpler, slower days of freedom and security are being recaptured in trailers from all eras, rescued and restored as living, road-ready Americana.
Ready to Roll, with more than 300 color photographs, taps into this trend in gloriously illustrated and insightfully chronicled retro style. Here is the complete evolution of the trailer, from the utilitarian Covered Wagon to the aristocratic Airstream and Aerocar Land Yacht to the homemade Hammer Blows of the Depression.
