Almost since the invention of the automobile, Americans have been manufacturing recreational vehicles to take home on the road. Once-called “house cars,” some of the most important and interesting campers and motorhomes in the history of the industry are on display at this museum, the “RV capital of the world.”
The RV/MH Heritage Foundation established an RV museum in Elkhart County, where more than 80 percent of RVs are manufactured. Walking through the exhibit in Founders Hall, which has representations of RVs from 1913 through the 1980s, is a trip through time. The winding path looks like a blacktop road, complete with lane-dividing white stripes, and fake trees and plants replicating the vehicles’ natural habitat: nature.
