Newly-built house trailers of the late 1950s featured several innovative design concepts, such as a front kitchen. A rig might also come with the new-type "jalousie" (roll out) windows. The late 1950s brought longer units, which were now approaching 60 feet in length.

Mobile home exteriors of the late 1950s and early '60s were also futuristic in appearance. Sweeping "sky-roofs", such as the one featured on this 1959 model, brought in light and nighttime views of the stars and heavens. A matter of note: the 1959 cost of a mobile home fell between $3,500 (for an economy rig) and $15,000 (for a luxury model).
