Plot:

Nicky Collini and his fiancée Tacy buy (despite Nicky's extreme reluctance and dire predictions) a large trailer home (a 36-foot 1953 New Moon, which cost $5,345 at the time), so that they can save money that would otherwise be spent on a house. They plan to travel around the USA to civil engineering projects on which Nicky is employed.

Nicky and Tacy must buy a more powerful car to tow the trailer, a 1953 Mercury Monterey convertible with a 125 HP flathead V8 engine, and the money spent starts to mount up. The honeymoon trip to the Sierra Nevada mountains rapidly becomes a catalogue of disasters. These include Tacy's attempts to cook dinner in a moving, rocking trailer, and later a cliffhanging ride on a narrow road through the mountains, with the trailer weighed down by many rock specimens and canned food she has collected.

After they arrive at the home of Tacy's aunt and uncle, with other relatives and neighbors who are gathered watching, Nicky accidentally backs the trailer into their hosts' porch, partly destroying it as well as a prized rose bush. Later, after turning on an old logging road, Nicky tries to level the trailer at night while stuck in the mud during a rainstorm.

Relations deteriorate between the couple, and finally Tacy storms off in a huff. But in the end, they are tearfully reunited.
