The Good Ol’ Days of RVing

In the early days, if you wanted an RV you built it. By the end of World War I, Americans added tents, beds and cooking facilities to their family cars and hit the road. By the 1920s, campers who demanded more comfort built their own “RVs” — simple wooden houses mounted on the chassis of Model ‘T’ Fords. Look closely at this picture and you’ll see wheels, headlights, a rear view mirror and, gee, even what looks like a chimney.
