This trailer is emblematic of a hopeful period of time in American history when newly mobile, upwardly mobile Americans took to the road to explore the nooks and crannies of the world’s greatest nation. This was the backdrop when a small company in Friendship, Wisconsin made this “canned ham” trailer. The glistening, aerodynamic aluminum exterior could be towed with ease behind the early V8s of the time. You were now free to explore America.
Here at Camp Wandawega, you don’t need to hitch the Friendship to your ’59 Mercury to experience freedom. You need to disconnect from the modern world, walk through the doors of the trailer, and step back in time.
