1953 Mobile Homes

1953 mobile homes were so cool!

Here’s a video I put together with an alphabetized list of the most popular mobile home builders in 1953. The images were pulled from the 1953 Mobile Homes Yearbook published by the Trailer Coach Manufacturers Association. Enjoy!

The 1953 Vagabond was 41′ long! Its iconic shape, with the curved rear, is gorgeous!

Like the Airstream and Spartan, the 1953 Vagabond had metal framing. It had higher ceilings than the prior years model than most 1953 mobile homes.

One of the most prominent features in the Vagabonds was their floor heating system.
