Thumbs up The Long Long Trailer By Clinton Twiss

While Mom was preparing dinner after a long day over the road, some were told to go out of doors and play...

Picture this; from left to right. Brother's Bob, Mel and Dad playing catch!



PS; Yours truly must have still been on KP Duty in the kitchen for setting off that crude home security devise in the desert.
With Love,

Here is a link to an eBay ad for a press photo showing a similar long, long trailer pulled by a car in 1952:
1952 Press Photo Large Trailer Home Vacation Recreational Vehicle | eBay

Possibly the same trailer make and model, but a different paint scheme than Terry's (TRfour's).

The trailers in the pictures resemble the 1953 New Moon in the Lucille Ball/Desi Arnaz movie.

You think? I like Ricki and Lucy's better.





You can tell from this last photo, the Ricardo's TT is nowhere near as long...

Hi, did you notice that they started out with a 1953 Mercury [2nd picture] and later switched to a Lincoln. [3rd picture]

I don't see the Lincoln. Looks like the same car to me.
I want a doorbell like the 1953 New Moon-
Come to think of it, I want a 1953 New Moon.
And a yellow 1953 Chevy 3100 to pull it with.
