Vintage mobile homes and the Trailerite culture of the 1940s, '50s and early '60s
Ironwood, Michigan's Ironwood Trailer Coaches, Incorporated was producing three models in 1949. MODEL "23", the low price-point rig, the somewhat larger MODEL "25", and MODEL "30", the company's top-of-the-line offering. One of the unit's many features was its "innerwall ventilation".
The MODEL "30" rig was, as its name implied, 30 feet in length (and 8 in width). The unit had a single bedroom, but its built-in sofa and dinette converted into additional sleeping accomodations. Although promoted and sold as a "deluxe", "luxury" trailer, the MODEL "30" did not have a bathroom.
