I wonder if those trailers had brakes? Knowing how much technology has changed, can you imagine going down the east side of 70 in Colorado? Keep in mind that this was before the interstate system, 2 lane road, downhill grades and switchbacks, drum brakes on all 4 corners with no boosters!!!!! What fun!

Great video. Those old movie reels were great.

They mentioned an $8000 trailer. I went to a website and calculated that in today's dollars it would be little over $131,000.

Can't beat the dollar a week for camping - Ohhh and the 25 cents for electricity.
