Book Review - Trailerama
Trailerama - Phil Noyes
If you're looking for a book to satisfy your lust for visual images of vintage trailers, then this is it! Noyes has pulled together an impressive collection of ephemera related to these old beauties, and organized it in a manner that even a librarian could love! I sat for an hour or so and paged through this book, enjoying every image and the sparse but pointed commentary. Trailerama is an interesting peek into the world of life in a mobile home - small or large.
Advertisements and old photos combine to create this nostalgic look at the culture surrounding trailer life. A lot has changed over the years, but the love for a little mobile home away from home hasn't diminished. We still yearn for the chance to get out and see more of the world around us, and this glimpse of the trailer lifestyle will inspire even the most immobile to head for their nearest state park, trailer in tow.
It's all about hitting the road and having a good time.
