Amazing motorhome was once one huge tree

RV Travel reader Richard Hughes sent us this photo of a 1924 Redwood Log Motor Coach. “An uncle, on my father’s side, was an agent at one of the reservations in Washington State and I think that is where this was taken,” he wrote. “The information I have is the tree, at the time it was cut, was 2,100 years old. That would have meant it started growing about 176 B.C.

“The height of the tree from which this log was taken was 287 feet and its base 16 feet in diameter. The front of the log, where it was cut to make the coach, was the part 64 feet from the ground and measured 7 feet 7 inches in diameter. The log portion used for the coach was 22 feet long.”
