Trailer Life: 28 Cool Pics That Capture People With Their Mobile Homes in the 1950s and 1960s

Derived from the travel trailer (often referred to during the early years as "house trailers" or "trailer coaches") as a small unit with wheels attached permanently, often used for camping or extended travel, a mobile home is a prefabricated structure, built in a factory on a permanently attached chassis before being transported to site (either by being towed or on a trailer).

The original rationale for this type of housing was its mobility. Units were initially marketed primarily to people whose lifestyle required mobility, used as permanent homes, or for holiday or temporary accommodation, they are left often permanently or semi-permanently in one place, but can be moved, and may be required to move from time to time for legal reasons.
