Travel RVing -- A Glance at the History of the RV and a Simpler (?) Life
Ever since the invention of the automobile, people have been setting up their vehicles with sleeping quarters and cooking facilities. When the automobiles with seats were no longer sufficient for those with itchy feet, the first commercially produced RVs hit the marketplace. That was in 1910. This is the year that is credited with the origin of modern RV history.
In 1910, gas stations were scarce, there was no highway system--heck, any kind of paved road was rare; yet still--there were RVs. No phones, no TVs, no air conditioning-- but the RV was present and accounted for.
The first camping club was formed in the United States around 1919. They called themselves the "Tin Can Tourists". They camped by the side of the road and heated tin cans of food on kerosene stoves and bathed in cold water. By the mid-1930's they had grown to 150,00 members. Wow!
Campgrounds for tourists began to pop up here and there, and by 1922 electricity was offered by some. We have certainly come a long way in just over a century. We have fully equipped kitchens and baths -- no tin can cooking here. Central heat and air conditioning is ours at the push of a button. Flat panel TVs, in-motion satellite receivers, refrigerators with ice makers...and we could just go on and on and
I have often been told that life was much simpler "back in the day". Though I admire the zeal and enthusiasm of our RVing predecessors, I have become a "sissy." I like warm showers and sleep number beds and microwave popcorn. Travel RVing says, "Bring on the complications". I think we can deal with them. How about you?
