Typically, David Holmes was busy with the production of mail-order fruit baskets. But during a period of downtime, he embarked on a new, more exciting endeavor. According to Old Trailer, it was 1959 when Holmes came up with the idea to make travel trailers. His line of trailers, described as having a "daring" design, shortly went into production in Medford, Oregon.
Production on the "Holiday Houses" didn't last long. It came to a halt in 1962 and from that point on, no more Holiday Houses were made. Holmes reportedly started a new line of trailers a few years later which were targeted towards a richer clientele. Today, it's quite rare to come across a Holiday House, as less than 200 were made. Get a glimpse at one of these beauties below.
The interior has clearly been untouched since it was made. Everything from the television to the wallpaper screams '60s.
Here's the eating area, which looks like it could have been the corner table at Jack Rabbit Slim’s.

For travelers who love to cook, this kitchen has everything you need.
In the back of the trailer is a sizable bathroom.
You don't often find travel trailers bathrooms with adequate space for a bathtub.
Those funky curtains go great in the bathroom.
