Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Trailerama provides a colorful look into America’s love affair with life on the road. It’s a visual wonderland filled with fascinating and diverse imagery of the travel trailer. From sheet music to greeting cards, board games to the cover of The New Yorker, the travel trailer figured prominently in twentieth century American pop culture. It’s put on grand display in this kitschy celebration culled from the personal collection of author Phil Noyes and all his “trailerite” buddies.

Phil Noyes has been a television and film producer in Los Angeles for two decades. He wrote and produced the PBS special Mobile America, which uncovered the history of the RV in America. He cowrote the Gibbs Smith book Trailer Travel and also writes a regular column for RV Magazine called “Trailer Tribe.” His current vintage trailer fleet includes a 1948 Aljoa, a 1947 Westwood and a 1953 Star.

About the Author

Documentary filmaker Phil Noyes is a producer of the popular PBS series California's Gold. He has completed a documentary about the history of the RV in America that will air beginning in spring 2002.

In his second book on vintage trailers, Mr Americana Phil Noyes has done it again. This book took me back and beyond to immerse in places and dreams of a time that I only get to glimpse at now. The artwork and photos that fill this book are truly gems that must have taken a lifetime to compile... Makes me wonder what got left out? - Hopefully enough for another book soon!

If you're a vintage trailer fanatic like I am, then this book is for you. There's not a lot of text, but the amount of visual pleasures is incredible. There are loads of vintage photos, vintage ads, vintage cartoons, etc. from start to finish. From the early beginnings of travel trailers, all the way up through the magnificent beauties of the 50's and '60's, this book will make you want a trailer if you don't already have one, and will make you appreciate the beauty in your trailer if you do have one. It's an incredible journey through travel trailer history. It would take you forever and cost you a fortune to collect all the content that is included in this wonderful book's 192 pages. It's simply AWESOME!!!

As a vintage travel trailer owner and enthusiast I know a good trailer book when I see one. This one isn't just good, it's the best...period. Mr. Noyes has outdone even himself - "Trailer Travel" was no slouch, people - with this gorgeous volume. Features charming text and beautifully arranged and reproduced literature, photos, and ephemera that we mortals could spend a lifetime looking for. And here it is, all in one place. Indispensable for the trailer fan, aesthetic candy for everyone else. DO NOT WAIT FOR A SOFTCOVER EDITION. This is the one you want!

I had no idea that this kind material even existed. This book is chocked full of amazing images and every page blew me away. There is even a spread devoted to trailer related sheet music from the thirties and the pics of the toys are beautiful. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves vintage americana or just cool design.

Great photos from times past, neat old ads for travel trailers and related things. I would love to know the history of some of the people in the "family" photos. The "trailer badges" pages are excellent, great detail for the restoration that one might undertake some time. The section on "trailer parks" was just as I remembered them growing up in California in the 50's. Great book, well done.

Love this book. My husband (and myself) both pore over anything having to do with 40s - 50s Americana, but especially campers. The photos in "Trailerama" are printed vividly and the entire book is put together so carefully, we just knew the author felt the same as we. Turned out to be my husband's favorite Christmas gift.

We're in the midst of doing a renovation on a 1966 camper and I wanted just a bit of inspiration. We're not "glampers", we just like vintage. This book has lots of vintage photos and art to whet your appetite for all things vintage trailer.
