A visit to the RV / MH Hall of Fame

Wednesday May 9th 2018

Today’s weather was the long lead up to a cold front passing trough the area. The day started cloudy and never improved much. As of ten in the evening we have had three lines of thunderstorms pass through. Each line was a little more intense than the last. The first line was around 11am, followed by a little clearing. The second line was at six in the evening and the third around 9PM. None of the storms were particularly sever, but the one after dark put on a real interesting light show.

This afternoon I visited the RV/MH Hall of Fame.  Their web site defines the organizations mission as “Dedicated to preserving the history and honoring the pioneers and individuals who have made significant contributions to the RV and Manufactured Housing industries …” I was interested in the museum. It has artifacts on display manufactured from 1913 to 1985.

1962 Apache Chieftain trailer. My parents had a similar 1962 Apache Scout trailer.  I don’t think it was setup very well.

The inside of the Imperial Mansion even had a sewing machine.
