Have motorhome. Bring hula skirt!


Thanks to our readers, we can always depend on getting something a bit out-of-phase in the mail. From Richard Pawlowski comes this classic Polynesian motorhome. We're expecting the next frame to show Bugs Bunny coming out the door with Mai Tais in hand, straight out of the Warner Brothers' classic, Wackiki Wabbit. Richard especially appreciates the roof-top patio. Great – provided there aren't any low bridges nearby!

Have you seen these weird road signs?

Cruising the open road always presents an opportunity for a few laughs. "Oh the places you'll go, oh the sights you'll see!" Well, some of the funnier sights are road signs -- many meant to be serious, but often turning into side-slappers. We wish we could claim to have shot these, but hey, we'll share them with you anyway. And by the way, if you've got any funny signs in your photo album, send 'em along for future publishing! russ at rvtravel dot com.

"Oldest motorhome in U.S." hits the market


If you're in the market for what is "probably the oldest motorhome in the United States," you may have just found it. What was called at the time a house car, this 1917 recreational vehicle was built on a Packard base. The current owner found the old rig in California back in 1981; he moved it to Oklahoma and has since done restoration work. The original owner was a family named Pickwick from Los Angeles. The family owned and operated a bus company that later merged with Greyhound.

Want to get a closer look? You'll need to head on over to Afton, Oklahoma, where the vintage vehicle is presently located – and up for sale, for a tad less than $100,000. But think what 100 grand will get you:

Twin six engine in good running condition, coupled with a three-speed manual transmission. The rear bedroom sleeps two comfortably. In the morning you can rise and fix breakfast on the two-burner gasoline cooktop up front in the galley, that also features a genuine icebox and sink.

Here's a link to the advertisement and connections to the seller.

Argentine motorhome -- color, style, and utility

Like a lot of Latin American countries, money can be tight in Argentina. You probably won't find too many private citizens that can afford say, a Thor built Class A. But that doesn't mean that Argentinians don't want to get out and RV like the rest of us. It just takes a bit of ingenuity.

Herein we present an Argentine motorhome. A motorhome built with imagination, utility, style, and yes indeed, lots of color.
