The film is notable because it is one of the rare times that Buster Keaton appeared onscreen with his family, whom he had performed with in vaudeville.


Elmer and his family run a hotel which is on the verge of closure unless they pay their mortgage by the end of the day. A newly married couple arrive at the hotel and are quickly unimpressed by the dilapidated state it is in. Elmer convinces them to buy a trailer belonging to him, reasoning that they will be able to spend their honeymoon traveling the country instead of at the hotel. The couple agree to buy the trailer but Elmer discovers that his Uncle Jed has been using the trailer to house a cow which is now too big to get out. Representatives from the bank arrive to shut down the hotel but the family manages to free the cow from the trailer and successfully sell it to the couple in time to pay off their mortgage.
