What is a Canned Ham beyond the obvious preserved dinner delicacy? It’s a vintage camper trailer with that distinctive, streamlined, oval shape that was a part of the 50’s and early 60’s design aesthetic. Cars weren’t equipped with super shocks, special transmission and engine oil coolers and dual rear wheels to haul the behemoths of today. They were simple family cars enabling travel and exploration on the newly laid highways of the Eisenhower Administration. So naturally the campers had to be small and lightweight. This meant rarely over 14 feet long, lightweight aluminum and thin plywood construction. LP propane was around but not so much electricity and thermodynamic cycle refrigerators. So you find interior gas lamps and ice boxes. You find louvered glass windows and scalloped magazine racks. Vinyl dinette seats and Formica countertops. Just the kind of simple, return to yesteryear feeling that soothes the mind from the normal pace of life.
