In 1956 the Mobile Home Engineering & Development Corporation, Chicago, IL, came up with probably the wildest idea yet Landcraft purchased the patent from them and produced a couple of prototypes.
They were, needless to say, not very popular. The trailers were built in 12' widths, but in such a fashion that they could be turned on their sides on a specially made bed so that they were only 8' wide in transit.
My question: what do you do with all of your stuff (furniture) when the home is on its side? Hhmmm.
