The list page. https://www.imdb.com/list/ls097288272/


These are not the traditional stereotypical houses built on land and normally stay in one place. In fact, most, not all, but definitely most of these houses or homes can travel. Which of these films or television show that features a non-traditional, alternative housing is your favorite?Sorry, since land has very little to do with these homes, real estate agencies can’t list there lots here, but it seams that dealers in moble housing and marinas can.

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0058855/reference
Robert Conrad ...   Jim West
Ross Martin ...   Artemus Gordon

Plot
James West and Artemus Gordon are two agents of President Grant
who take their splendidly appointed private train through the west to fight evil.

Goofs
Jim and Artie's train was missing at least three railcars in most shots.
The cars that were not shown would be where they kept their horses,

A better and more mysterious question is who drove the train and where did they sleep?

Please correct:
Which of these films or television shows that feature a non-traditional, alternative housing is your favorite?

...but it seems that dealers in mobile housing and marinas can...

#22: flying pirate ship!
#23: I’m sorry but it looks that Capt. Jack Sparrow doesn’t seem to have a permanent land address. Even Capt. Barbossa had the Black Pearl and Isla de Muerta as his land base

I have added “Snowpiercer” in which a whole community lives on a high speed train.

Now I got a problem as to which to include as for the last one. Why? Because I had just thought up a whole range of films and shows that include the fantasy genre of the hidden community (Harry Potter) . This includes “Beauty And The Beast” 1980’s tv show https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0092319/... that has a secret community living in the sewers, abandoned subway tunnels, and caves under New York City. This was a very intriguing place to watch. Any one of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles films and shows has them living in the same spot. (Hey, I wonder if any of the turtles have met Vincent’s (the Beast) community or Vincent himself? Story idea here?)


The city of “Tomorrowland” https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1964418/... that exist in another time and space - aka, another dimension really.


Then there is the outer space cities of “Elysium” https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1535108/... that is really a station station that is radically different from the space stations of “Deep Space Nine” or “Outland”.

Then there is that luxury spaceship cruise liner of Wall-E https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0910970/...
But which to choose????

I’m going have to axe one of my suggestions.

Thanks! I came home from work and was surprised to see this!
Even I had a hard time picking just one. I love them all!
After much thought, I chose “STARDUST”. Hey somebody has to stick up for yellow Gypsy wagons everywhere.
