Rockford's Mobile Trailer Home - Mobile trailer home seen on the detective drama THE ROCKFORD FILES/NBC/1974-80. Jim Rockford (James Garner) was an ex-con (falsely sentenced) who sold his services as a private investigator for $200.00 a day plus expenses.

His green and white 50-foot long mobile home located at 2354 Pacific Coast Highway in the Paradise Cove Trailer Colony (later given as 29 Cove Road in Malibu) was his base of operations. Costing $7,000, Jim once described his home/office as "cheap, tax-deductible, earthquake-proof and when I get a case out of town, I take it with me." His refrigerator was always stocked with beer and TV dinners.

On episode No. 108, Jim's friend Angel (Stuart Margolin) and Rockford discover a cache of gold bullion (stolen from a US military vault) buried beneath his trailer.

TRIVIA NOTE: Paradise Cove is actually a private beach north of Malibu with a gate to regulate pedestrians and drivers. Rockford's trailer was placed in the parking lot of the Sand Castle Restaurant, a real eatery on the beach at 28128 Pacific Coast Highway. William Conrad's house on JAKE AND THE FATMAN/CBS/1987-92 was the first house to the right of the restaurant.
