The Mobile Home

At one of the place I stopped while garage sale hunting, there was this old pop up tent trailer. It wasn't for sale though. I snuck a picture of it, as I thought my bloggers would like it!

Today's mobile homes are so big and extravagant! Whatever happened to the little tin box? Or the canvas pop up tent trailer? They sure are rare in good ol Alberta, but I  bet you can still see them roaming the interstates of southern America.

I love how kitch these trailers were/are. The mobile parks and homes decorated with bright pink flamingos, white picketed fence, patriotic flags perhaps, and a cute couple wearing there bathing suits drinking beer.

Here are some other mobile homes I came across on the Internet. Now, more than ever, I want a vintage mobile home to call my own!

I found this blog post, which is also about the oh so lovley vinatge mobile home. Check it out.


  1. So, I'm pretty sure that the trailer my family had growing up was exactly like the white one with the robin's egg blue stripes, right above the tin one with the tin Christmas tree.

  2. shut up! really?!!! thats awesome!!!

  3. My family raced national motocross and we were always traveling in buses and trailers. Love this!! Love the vintageness and crave the hippie way of life. TRAVELING LIKE A GYPSY!

  4. I dont think ive ever even been in a vintage trailer, expect for the pop up tent like the first picture. ho hum. one day
