Looks like storage for the stinky slinky on the curbside in the 2nd picture.
I bet it doesn't really have a sunken living room. I think that was just something for the movie.

I think the movie makers hoped people wouldn't notice.

Come to think of it, I want a 1953 New Moon.
And a yellow 1953 Chevy 3100 to pull it with.
Hi, yes they look very similar. The Lincoln is larger and longer. The Mercury had a 255 cubic inch Flathead engine, which was under powered, and the Lincoln had a 317 cubic inch overhead valve engine. Also the Mercury had a 2 speed Merc-O-matic trans with a third gear [low] only if manually operated. The Lincoln had a 4 speed Hydramatic trans.

Found a couple more shots of the famous trailer.

First, an overhead shot, showing the surprisingly empty rooftop:



Climbing the "difficult for trailers" 20 miles of bad road:



Backing up to go around the most dangerous turn:



And then the money shot, in the rain, the door flapping open and closed (cue the violins):



Made in Hollywood, U.S.A. ::sigh:: Thank you, MGM!

NO A/C!
No skylights- a good thing in my opinion-
No refrigerator vent.
Only a single vent stack for the plumbing.
I bet that trailer didn't have many roof leaks.

So I searched out this thread having just watched the movie this weekend. I was going to give it a huge thumbs down but then I started reading the thread and couldn't stop! Where is Terry? Did the book ever get published?? Pharmgeek - you need to read this whole thread and see what you're investing in your kids!

Still hated the movie but so glad to have read this thread!

Saw this movie over the weekend. Not really impressed and only got through about half before giving up. It goes back to Netflix today.

A couple questions...

Anyone care to sell or share their copy of this book?

Amazon has copy but thought I would ask here first.

If I get a copy, I will offer back to forum after I check it out.

Send PM is ok.

I hope to get it transcribed to audio if I can...

Peace
Channing and Phyllis.

I got a copy free on interlibrary loan. Libraries have fallen into disuse but are those buildings that have things called books and lonely librarians.

Libraries are online, too. Download the book here, in PDF or e-book formats…

Guess that lonely librarian will be lonely a while longer. Gives her more time to update her Facebook page, I guess.
