FYI anyone going to the June rally. There is an RV museum fairly close to the campground. Linked here are a couple of the vehicles shown.

Hi Jon,

Last year that was on the agenda and several of us went to the museum and it's really worth the time and money to go. I just loved the old RVs.

I edited your pictures, the links was not working so hopefully it is now.

The two pictures that you have was not there last year, they said they would be adding new artifacts as they came in and if needed, restored.

I urge people to take the time and visit this museum and there is also new and modern RVs too.

With me being an antique car nut and collected of old Fords, this 1913 Model "T" Ford roadster pulling a travel trailer is the earliest RV known to be in existance.

And This Model "AA" Ford may be the earliest "real" motor home, called "Tennesee Traveler"

(NOTE: The Model "AA" Ford is a truck with a bigger chasis and was made for power for heavy hauling and not for speed)

John,
Thanks for fixing the links. I know what I did. I moved the pics to a sub album after I made the links. Duh! The pics came from a cousin in Elkhart and were from last week. He also sent me pics of the Tenesee Traveler, and some of the modern ones too. I didn't get one of the "T". That's cool!
Coach is coming along good. I've started working on interior mods and have most of the driving bugs cured. I sure like the way the conversion makes it an "easy drive"

The pics came from a cousin and he only had noted that it was built in the 30's. Mighty spiffy for the 30's

It was not there last year. It really reminds me of an Airstream or Liberty camper but with an enigne. Rather neat isn't it?
