Saw this tonight on Facebook. Designed by Brooks Stevens who also designed the Wienermobile and the civilian version of the Jeep for Willys. Designed every Jeep model from Willys and AMC up to the 1980 Cherokee.
Here's the link to the story.

That 'trailer' is interesting....with the grill and headlites, it looks more like a motorhome...

Brooks Stevens was one of the great industrial designer's of the twentieth century. In a league with the likes of Raymond Loewy, Henry Dreyfuss, etc...
