Class A Motorhome Historic Appreciation

Did you know that the very first recreational vehicles appeared on the market in the 1900s? As cars were invented, as were trailers and smaller types of the Class A motorhome. People have always enjoyed sleeping wherever the open road leads them.

Those who were Class A motorhome or RV camper enthusiasts were called Tin Can Tourists because the RVs looked as though they were a tin can. These recreational vehicles differ from our modern day Class A motorhome. The Class A motorhome, though, has stayed consistent as years have passed. The good thing is that as the Class A motorhome or camper trailer has become more modern so have the amenities. Look at trailerite.com to see more samples of historic tin can campers and RVs.

Another way for the Class A motorhome or recreational vehicle enthusiast to relish in its history is to visit the Motoring Festival at Hilton Head Island. This offers a rare look at historic RVs, such as the Class A motorhome or trailer. You can enjoy fun facts that outline the progress of recreational vehicles. Americans enjoyed sleeping on the road even before motels and hotels became the hot spot. If you are interested in the Class A recreational vehicle and its history, visit this festival. Make sure you check the dates and times before you travel.
