The Towe Auto Museum in Sacramento, California, is currently exhibiting
the history of the RV through an exhibit called “Home on the Road
Covering the early days RVing, there are eight examples of
early-day Art Deco styling and innovative, one-of-a-kind travel
trailers. Most of the RVs exhibited were built in the 1930s, and are
extremely rare. The newest is a prototype of later Airstreams. There’s
also the Hunt Hollywood House Car, with a Mercury flathead V-8 engine,
an early precursor to modern motorhomes. The exhibit ends October 15,
