RV traveler brings Albany a history lesson

April 28, 2006

Albany -- Recreational vehicles don't get great gas mileage, but they do offer lots of fun. And they've been around longer than you may think.

The National RV History Tour took a detour in Albany Friday, one of thirty stops throughout the country. The moving mueseum gives people a glimpse of the motorhome's evolution -- from a 1931 Mae West House Car to a modern day Winnebago.

"What we're showing people is how RVs have changed. If you'll notice this Mae West camper, look at the interior of it, with it's kitchen stove, ice box, sink. But now as you look at the interior of the new RV, with a push of a button, the sides slide out. It's got a complete bedroom that slides out. RV travel has improved a lot," said David Woodworth.

The tour has been featured on the history channel and the travel channel.
