I saw it over the weekend, and thought I would fall out of my chair. I have a long, long trailer, and can identify with every mistake they made... especially their long journey up the steep and curvy mountain with Lucy's secrets hidden in the trailer (I won't give it away for anyone who has not seen it). And it is such a riot to hear her calling him Nicky instead of Ricky.
Oh, well... those were the days.

Now that I have watched the movie I know what you are referring to.I loved the movie and especially the part meeting the car on the mountain and the looks on their faces.I also found it interesting the way they were treated when they arrived at the 'trailer park'.

DVR is all set-up.

DW has never seen it.

And I have personal experience with her collecting obsessions.

A friend sent me a copy for Christmas and I just watched it today. I have nightmares about backing up and this movie sure didn't help. LOL

It's available on DVD from Amazon and other sellers.

Here is a little info with photos on the original of the Long Long Trailer story. It is based on the experiences of Clinton and Merle Twiss as they lived full time in their own long, long Airfloat trailer.

Trailerite.com - Celebrating Clinton Twiss, One of the first Full Time RVers

There is a link on this website to order your own DVD. Go to the home page for more interesting Trailerite info on the DVD and other matters.

THE LONG LONG TRAILER" is going to be on TV!

Can't beat the movie -- my all-time favorite! I have it on BETA, VHS, LaserDisc, and DVD. Always have at least on copy in my coach. This is the movie that is always playing when I have my coach open during VAC or Forums open houses.

"THE LONG LONG TRAILER" is going to be on TV!

Did I ever let myself in for some kidding on our caravan to the International Rally in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. We traveled through Minnesota where we stopped at numerous locations where geodes were offered for sale -- book ends, door stops, trivets, and just about any unique color or shape that you might like. Blue was a prevalent shade -- I was decorating a recently purchased home and seemed to purchase two or more geode objects at each stop. Ened up with the under-lounge drawers at the front of my Overlander filled with the bounty. By our last day in Minnesota, I was being accused of trying to recreate The Long, Long Trailer. When I continued this pattern as we traveled through South Dakota . . . . . . well . . . . . . .

I will be towing the Overlander to Madison with my '75 Cadillac Eldorado convertible this coming summer . . . . . . . this could become interesting very quickly. . . . . . .

For those of you who sometimes buy too much stuff while traveling, or regretfully turn down things you want because you haven't got room... have you considered mailing stuff home?

Tacy could have packed up her preserves and rocks and shipped them on ahead.This could have saved the Colinis a lot of trouble but it would have spoiled the plot a little.

To me this would not have been a bad thing. My favorite scenes are where everything is going well, the sun is shining and Tacy and Nicky are singing duets or driving thru the breathtaking scenery of Yellowstone Park. I don't like to see them fight and get in trouble.

Incidentally Lucy did slip up once and call Ricky Ricky when she should have said Nicky. Did anyone else notice this?

Hi, I don't remember that, [Ricky] but did you notice after climbing the mountains, The 1953 Mercury changed into a 1953 or 1954 Lincoln?

The '53 was a flathead V8. Ford began with OVH valve engines in 1954. Plus I don't think any of those early Ford engines would have towed that 40' New Moon trailer. I saw one of the New Moons back then and they were HUGE. They were park models but for the movies anything can be possible.

Hi, Neil that would have been an awful big load 125 HP 255 Cu-In Merc Flathead. Ford actually had OHV in 1952 on the Ford inline six and the Lincoln V-8's 317 Cu-In and about 165 HP. 1954 for Ford V-8 as you mentioned. Still not big enough for that trailer. Not to mention Lucy's collections.
