RV historian David Woodworth will travel the U.S. this summer on his National RV History Tour in a Winnebago Vectra diesel pusher.
Woodworth will visit 27 cities on the promotional media tour sponsored by the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA).
In addition to the 34-foot 2004 Winnebago Vectra from Winnebago Industries Inc., Woodworth will display a 1916 telescoping RV that uses a Ford Model-T chassis. This 16-foot “House Car” features a sleeping area, pantry, clothes chest and stove that mounts on the engine.
In contrast, the Vectra features living-room and bedroom slideouts, full bathroom, modern kitchen with microwave/convection oven, three-burner gas range with oven and four-door refrigerator-freezer, complete home theater system, including a surround-sound system, combination DVD/VCR and two flat-screen TVs.
The tour is a celebration of RVing along with being educational. Even though many decades separate the two vehicles – their purpose is the same: to provide people with freedom while traveling.
