1960 Holiday House
Conceived by Harry and David Company (the same company that sends fruit baskets during the holiday season), as a way way to keep his workers employed during the January to July “off season”. What set the Holiday House trailers apart was their overall progressive styling both inside and out. This is a beautiful example.
