Here are a few selected trailer manufacturing advertisements from the May 1954 issue of Trailer Life Magazine.
Trailer Life, May 1954, Vol. 14, No. 5 ~ The original painting along with the magazine hangs in our family room.
About the cover (quote): The lure of the mobile home is travel and right now the vacation trailer market is booming. The reason is two-fold but simple. We all have the gypsy wanderlust. The second reason is economy. Your vacation money goes twice as far in a trailer. This particular cover was painted by Boots Erlandson, whose father Artist Ivan Erlandson has contributed regularly to Trailer Life.
