Mobiles Go Upscale

Back in the 1950’s, Bing Crosby established an upscale mobile home park he names “Blue Skies”, after one his biggest hits. Inviting some of his movie star friends to invest, they created a planned community of trailers and mobiles, each with it’s own theme. Pictured left is the “Mt. Vernon”, named after George Washington’s home. This mobile home park had several “approved” motifs, and each trailer had to be disguised, either as Egyptian, Asian, or “Classic” like the one pictured here.
