Collapsible “Home” Carried On Roof Of Automobile (Nov, 1938)

Collapsible “Home” Carried On Roof Of Automobile

FEATURING six windows fitted with slid-glass and permanent screens, a newly developed prefabricated collapsible house which can be carried on the roof of an ordinary passenger auto enables sportsmen, fishermen and others who like the outdoors to enjoy short or prolonged trips in perfect comfort. In its compact form the folding house measures only 6x9x2 feet. For protection to the car and to facilitate loading and unloading, a metal frame is used to support the house during transit. The frame can be clamped to the car without drilling and is easily removed. The photos above show the house being transported, unloaded, set-up and used by four persons.

    Used by 4 people… to eat in. Where do those 4 people SLEEP in? It’s only about 5 feet wide (the roof is about a foot longer and wider than the actual “house”), making it probably smaller than a queen sized mattress. Sounds mighty uncomfortable to share with more than one other person. I see no provisions for beds in the interior pic, either.
