Mobile Mansions

A well done one hour video about the history of RVing. Grab a cup of coffee, put your feet up and enjoy! Tom

Thanks, Tom!

Interesting!

Looking at the lines of it, I guess I should have known that the Airstream trailer
was a descendant of the Bowlus Road Chief. 😉

It took a few sittings, but I watched the whole thing, and enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing it, Tom.

You're welcome Jim. You can't help but admire the old timers spirit, and appreciate the RV's we have today. I was struck by how the urge to wander and explore has changed so little, even though the methods and RV's have.

Tom

The author of the video is Doug Keister. He also has a book "Teardrops and Tiny Trailers". It has a chapter titled "Glass Houses" with photos of 3 Bolers, a Fiber Stream, a Compact Jr, and a U Haul.

Thanks for the Mobile Mansions link Tom. Looks like we are not original with our license plate.

Tom, we came close to buying a Camp-Inn teardrop before we bought the Scamp, and ran across that book. It's really well done. I never put 2 and 2 together. I think I'll buy it now.

Dave and Paula, your "Mansion" should be featured in Mobile Mansions II. You might have to wait a few years. I think you should send Doug Keister that picture.

Tom
