Silver Palaces Book
With a simple, historical beginning, the streamlined trailer got its start. There were challenges in making mobile spaces for living-could anyone make a self-contained streamlined trailer complete with full hookups? After World War II, housecars and motorhomes were seen everywhere-a result of aluminum becoming available for trailers. Once these silver palaces were on the road, RVs and travel associations became popular . . . and well, the end of the highway was never in sight.

Vintage camper trailers are a unique symbol of midcentury America that resonates with many people. This book introduces many of those people, along with the trailers they’ve lovingly maintained or restored. It includes hundreds of photographs of everything from fancy and comfortable trailers designed for glamping (glamorous camping), to trailers handed down through families across generations.
This is our first book. (200 full color pages in hardcover.)
Paul and Caroline Lacitinola are immersed in the vintage camper trailer hobby including rescuing, restoring, and rallying. In 2011, they began publishing the first U.S.-based magazine for collectors, restorers, and admirers of American-made camper trailers. Subscribe Here
