RVing in 1937

RVing in 1937
See a two minute newsreel from nearly 70 years ago celebrating "one million" RVers on the road.

Go to rv.tv

Enjoy

Smile Nice thread!

Thanks for sharing the info Rick. I liked watching it, thanks for the link too Bob.

Funny about the housewives with only 1 room to clean. In 1937 they were working 10 times harder than we do now with all our appliances (I love technology, especially laundry technology!!) Wow I was flashing back to great-grandma when I saw the lady in the apron washing dishes...

One of the couples who tow with us uses a '35 Ford, another a 33 Chev, another a 38 Ford, so when this came up I popped it off to them. Their cars are all hotrodded but it gives them an idea of what they look like coming down the road. I'm the only Airstream so far but we are trying to change that. I really enjoy this type of stuff. Thanks for sharing it.

1936 Curtis Aerocar

Friends of mine 10 minutes from where I live have a 1936 Curtis Aerocar teamed with a 1938 International custom-built tow truck.

I can't even stay in my own back yard for that cheap.....no wonder many people look back at those times and think everything was wonderful.
