MotorHome magazine, the No. 1 choice for travel, tech and lifestyle for the motorized RV enthusiast, is marking its 50th anniversary this year. According to a press release, each issue of the 2018 calendar year takes a close look at highlights from the past half-century of MotorHome’s history, with a special collector’s edition in July that marks the achievements of the magazine and the industry overall.
MotorHome began its days as MotorHome Life in 1968, originally intended to be an offshoot of Trailer Life in the form of a motorized buyers guide. The inaugural issue featured 88 models within its 96 pages. It was after a rather successful initial run, and due to overwhelming demand, that publisher Art Rouse decided to grant MotorHome Life bi-monthly status in 1971.
The ensuing years would see MotorHome Life combine with Camper Coachman from 1975-1978, and a short partnership with Van Life & Family Trucking from 1980-1981. But the need to concentrate solely on motorized vehicles outgrew such collaborations and, in 1982, MotorHome as we now know it was born.
Ever since its humble beginnings, MotorHome has kept at the forefront of recreational issues affecting the RV industry – from coverage on alternative fuel to the latest and greatest RV products. And, like those early issues, the primary objective of MotorHome continues to be providing accessible, unparalleled access to the motorized RV lifestyle — including the newest motorized products and technology, insight from the industry’s top figures and expert tips from certified professionals — all in the name of presenting the ultimate publication for the discerning motorhome owner.
Motorhome owners have come to rely on the expertise found each month in the pages of MotorHome, which is why it’s North America’s largest paid-circulation magazine for motorized RVs. The commemorative July issue, which will include special editorial highlights celebrating 50 years of motorhomes as well as archival photos, will have additional circulation at Camping World locations and Barnes & Noble stores.
