A Look Inside The Rare 1961 Holiday House Geographic Trailer

You may not recognize this Holiday House Geographic travel trailer as there were not many of them ever produced. The trailers were first designed in 1958 as a limited production model that the company’s president dubbed as the “Trailer For The Rich” (with an original price around $8,500).

The rare fiberglass trailers had a futuristic style unlike any other camper of their time. Only seven of the limited edition “Model X” trailers were made before the factory ultimately burned down in 1962.

This 1961 Holiday House Geographic is thought to be only one of two still in existence. It was completely restored from the frame up by Flyte Camp, a vintage camper restoration company based in Bend, Oregon. The trailer still maintains much of its sleek classic look but is now also equipped with modern luxuries.

Holiday House
A rare piece of history

Inside, the trailer has Black Walnut wall skin, cabinetry, and Black Walnut hardwood flooring. The interior still has antique light sconces now with LED lighting. There is also LED strip accent lighting under the cabinets and along the floor in the living area.

The new and improved interior

The kitchen was refurbished with stainless countertops and luxurious, custom pleated drapes over the windows. It also got a new two-burner cooktop, 3-way fridge, and a stainless sink with a built-in drain board.

Unlike its original design of the early ’60s, the trailer’s new, modern features include a 32″ television, surround sound, and a DVD/Bluetooth stereo system. It comes with a 2000-watt inverter powered by Trojan 6-V AGM batteries and the system is solar capable. There are 12-volt outlets in addition to 110 outlets throughout the coach.

The gorgeous interior

There is also a small dressing area beside the bathroom with a counter to set things down and drawers to store clothes. The trailer has lots of full-extension drawers throughout that provide more than enough storage space.

The interior and exterior were signed by the designer himself—a world-renowned industrial engineer, Chuck Pelly. In the late 1950s, Pelly was hired by Holiday House trailers to create the limited edition model.
