Home on the Road

My Dad bought a location house bus from Hal Rouch Studios. It once belonged to Stan Lauel and Oliver Hardy. It was used while shooting their movies. It had everything we needed while we were on the road, however Dad did build a few extras. He put a hitch on it to pull a small trailer. Dad put a hitch on everything, he always said “if you can’t pull with it it’s isn’t worth a damn.”
