Our Visit to the RV/MH Hall of Fame & Museum
We couldn’t help but enjoying breakfast AGAIN this morning at Granma’s House of Pancakes which was originally recommended by Rob over at MORryde. Great suggestion, Rob! After finishing up an early breakfast, we decided we needed to spend some time doing office work and blogging. After a quick google search, I found that there was an Electric Brew only 3 miles away. This is the same coffee shop (different location) I had enjoyed lunch at with my sister last week. Over some iced coffee, Russ & I played catch-up!
After a few hours of work, we headed over to the nearby RV & Motorhome Hall of Fame & Museum. We had debated about whether or not to go a couple times and decided while we were in the area that we should check it out.
The goal of the RV/MH Hall of Fame & Museum is to preserve the history and honor the individuals who made large contributions to the RV industry. Upon entering, we were greeted by a gentleman who gave us a quick introduction to the museum and what to expect. The RV Founders Hall was filled with trailers each with a sign that included the year, brand, and a brief description of the trailers displayed. Several of the trailers were nearly 100 years old. It was cool to see how some of the same ideas and methods are still used today with much more advanced technology. The had trailers ranging from motorhomes to truck campers to popups to housecars. I think we decided the housecars were our favorite - maybe because they were the most unique as they are the ones they don’t make anymore.
We are not sure it was worth $10/person for the amount to time we spent there, however we still enjoyed our time looking around. Regardless, we appreciated being able to support an industry that is so much a part of our lives!
