Sexy looking trailers

I really like the looks of the Oxygen but I know there are several other "aesthetically pleasing to the eye" trailers out there. I used to have an all time, very rare, probably European, favorite. However father time has eroded my memory to the point that I can't think of the name anymore . Let me know your favorite best looking trailer of all time. Include pictures if you can find some.

Two of my favorites are the Willerby Vogue already mentioned and the 1961 Holiday House Geographic. There are threads (with pictures) of both on this site. I wouldn't set your sights on the Geographic, though. I believe there were only a small handful made. One recently sold for big bucks to a collector in France.

Here's the Geographic:

Yes I heard about the Geographic.

I had heard about the Geographic. The best I recollect was it was the only one left.

I believe another turned up and was reported here, so at least two out there. I recall a suggestion that there might have been a couple more made. If you do a "Site Search/Google" (bottom of the search menu) you should turn up several threads on the Geographic.

Nope, now there's two we know of. Flyte Camp in Bend, OR now has one and will be restoring it. Gosh I hope they film the resto and put it on the show Flippin' RVs.

I'll second the Road Chief. Not molded, so I didn't mention it. You can buy a new version of the classic design, but it will set you back $140K to well over $200K. Love the train-like layout! Like a super-model: sexy, sleek, high maintenance, and unattainable.

Yes that is a good analogy. I can't see actually using one. It is a truly aerodynamic design.

"Sexy" is in the eye of the beholder. Good looks do not necessarily go with good function.
