The most famous RVer of all time


lindy-738I’d like to tell you a brief story about the most famous American to travel by RV. Yet most people never knew he did. During his life, he was one of the best-known men in the world, and for perhaps a decade THE best known. With his RV, he and his wife could escape from the masses and find solitude. The man was famed aviator Charles Lindbergh.

In the 1940s, automaker Henry Ford learned that Lindbergh was looking for a travel trailer. Although Lindbergh wanted to buy one, Ford insisted he take one he had bought for a museum. It has since been described as a “huge brown elephant” on wheels. A week later, Lindbergh hooked up the trailer to his car and drove off. He and his wife Anne traveled in it off-and-on for the next 15 years, a place where Anne could write in peace. Today, the trailer is on display at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan.
