Wow, that's a good one.

Thes "House cars" seem to have been all the rage among the Hollywood set in the 1920's and 30's. At the RV Hall of Fame you can tour May West's:

It's amazing how innovative they really were with housecars in the '20s and '30s given the state of automotive and even home building technology. And you can see a big leap in design from Mae West's to the '29 Studebaker, and then again to the '37 Packard.

BTW, I don't know about other states, but the term "house car" is still the current name for a motorhome in the California Vehicle Code.
