Nicky and Tacy are going to be married. Nicky wants to save up money for a house, but Tacy dreams of starting off with their own home on wheels--a trailer. After the two are hitched, they hitch up their trailer and begin their honeymoon. The humor comes from several disastrous adventures the couple has while traveling including Tacy's awkward attempt to cook dinner in a moving trailer, and a cliffhanging ride through the mountains that nearly destroys their marriage.

The chorus of the song "Everything Right is Wrong Again" by the band They Might Be Giants references the scene where Lucy's character is stuck in the trailer which has become unhinged from the car. "Everything right is wrong again Just like in the long long trailer All the dishes got broken and the car kept driving And nobody would stop to save her" See more »
In the scene where Nicky gives Uncle Edgar (Walter Baldwin) back the anniversary present, her uncle calls him "Ricky" and not "Nicky." See more »
Trailer brake! Trailer brake! Turn right here left?
Impulsive Tacy somehow convinces obliging husband-to-be Nicky that they should buy a trailer to live in after they marry. She has her heart set on one particular model that looks great in the ad, but when they find out how small it really is, they're ready to go back to the idea of the house. But then Tacy sees it - the long, long trailer!
The movie is really nothing more than an extended comedy skit in which Nicky, Tacy, and the long, long trailer travel from California to Colorado. It's very skillfully executed with nice variations in the pacing and some very tastefully applied restraint. The highlight of the movie is the going over the mountain scene, which starts off in very understated manner and slowly builds to hilarious crescendo as they climb to the top of the pass. Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, playing their characters from "I Love Lucy", work perfectly together and make this movie a fun time for everyone.
