The story is that Tacy and Nicky are getting married. They decide to purchase a long, long trailer to live in, and they spend their honeymoon in it as well traveling from California to Colorado.

The rest is comedy history as one thing after another happens to them on this journey by the newlyweds.

You’ll never forget watching them drive in the mountains. And Lucy is up to her old tricks when she starts collecting rocks along the way to remember their trip by.
And, the scenes in the rain are just hilarious.
