King of the Road

I'm looking to create a scene of a 1956 camping trailer dealership.  I want camping trailers so that the lyrics of the song ("Trailers for Sale or Rent") can be used as a sign at the dealership.  The next scene would be a run down motel, to go with the lyrics, "Rooms to let 50 cents, no phone, no pool no pets."  How about King of the Road Motel?

 Any thoughts about which manufacturers make these trailers.?  The motel is MUCH easier.

It sounds like a job for a 3D Printer. 
I've only seen one Travel Trailer, I think made by Wiking and sold in a set with an Opel, if I recall?

Found this Shasta Compact on Thingiverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4645922

It's supposed to be of a 1962 model, but this particular classic look was good from the '50s to the '70s.

The Wiking travel trailer that Bryan was referring to is sold as a 2-pack.  The trailers come with an Opel Rekord (fastback) and a Chevelle Malibu.  The Opel and Chevelle are mid-1960s, so they would not work for your 1956 era, but the trailers would.  N Scale Supply has a set.  https://www.nscalesupply.com/wik/wik.html
