In the 1950s and ’60s, the camper trailer – the house you could hitch onto your car and take out into the woods, for a wholesome weekend with the family – was an emblem of Americana. Though dwarfed in popularity by the iconic Airstream, the Holiday House Model X is a quintessential example of the American trailer craze. Though they have been out of production since ’62 (when the Holiday House Factory burned down), Flyte Camp has restored this 1961 Holiday House Geographic Model X to its former glory.

Built for “holidays” and camping trips, the Holiday house is among the rarest vintage trailers out there. The vintage trailer restoration team at Flyte Camp did a remarkable job on the Holiday House. The all aluminum and wood crafted trailer is painted a beautiful champagne and moss green two tone on the outside, and an interior with Black Walnut wall skin, cabinetry and black walnut hard wood flooring with bronze colored pin-stripping. With its chrome siding, louvered windows, and glossy glass-front bay, other campers will certainly look on with awe and envy as you drive by, towing a veritable time capsule. Thought to be 1 of just 7 built before the Holiday House’s demise, this extremely rare example is a beautiful and practical antique.

Purchase: $250,000
