Also seen here, about a minute into this clip:

I'd love to find out what the dimensions are to that old camper trailer. If I can't find an HO scale version somewhere, I guess I'll have to figure out how to duplicate it from scratch, to fit in with my 15mm figures.

Thanks,

Dan

Looks like an old Airstream. Judging by the doors and shape…

Check out the post about halfway down this page and you will see the similarities: ralphmag.org/CY/marvell.html

Murphy, you da man!!!

About the 1974 Airstream pictured in that link:

"It was called a "Land Yacht," and was thirty feet long. It managed to compact everything into a 200 square foot living area --- stove, sink, refrigerator, dining nook, bedroom, bath, shower and toilet."

Awesome info.

Thanks so much,

Dan

That one is definitely a very close match:

Here's a good screenshot of Nestor's trailer from the film:

The front side barely seen here:

Seen here also in the background:

Here it is again, but seen from the opposite side of town (far right):

And there seems to be a similar one at the very back of this pic, seen right in front of a red mobile home:

I sent an email directly to Airstream, just in case they can add more information about the exact model.

Just got this:

Dan,
Sorry but the trailer in the video is not an Airstream. I'm not sure what type or model of trailer that it could be. It is a good movie.
Sincerely,

Oh well. At least he/she liked the movie clip. :)

Ok you experts …

Does it look to you like it might be an Elcar trailer like this one here?
