Holiday House started producing trailers in 1959. Their beginnings were very progressive with their futuristic designs. However, the Geographic X model remains the best model this company ever produced.

In 1958, industrial engineer Chuck Pelly was enlisted to design the Geographic model. Model X was the description of the “trailer for the rich”. Holiday House created only 7 of these futuristic trailers, but it price tag of almost $8,500 ( which is $71,000 today) put off buyers. There was only one purchase of the Geographic.

To the company’s misfortune, there was a fire that burned down the factory in 1962.

Therefore, making Geographic X one of the rarest trailer models. Fortunately, the buyer of the showroom model decided to sell it on 1999. As the sole surviving model, it was restored back to its former glory then exhibited throughout Europe and the United States.

Flyte Camp, an Oregon-based company that specializes in vintage trailer restoration were the one to find the second Geographic X in a garage in 2016 . The owner, without realizing that the trailer was in fact one of the most sought after mobile homes in the world, was using it as a storage unit for spare car parts.

The company immediately launched into a large-scale effort to restore this marvel of industrial design to its glory.

Seeing how neglected the van is, it took quite some time to return it in its previous glory. The whole restoration and renovation process of the Holiday House Geographic X took over two years. After its restoration, the Geographic X became the embodiment of the modern luxury travel trailer that Holmes had intended.
