“Old Woody,” the 1929 Ford Model A RV of your dreams!


Meet “Old Woody,” a custom-built 1929 Ford Model A with a matching teardrop trailer and wooden steamer trunk. The duo was built by Splinter Auto Works Inc. in Plymouth, Indiana (we don’t know when it was built, but we hope they build more!).

The adorable teardrop trailer can sleep two on a full-sized mattress. There isn’t much room to store your stuff, so the designer added a beautiful cedar store-all on the roof. It even comes equipped with two wooden paddles to make it look like it had wings, as the original teardrops had.

You’d make a lot of friends if you pulled this into a campsite for a few nights!

Looks great, but for my money and purpose totally impractical. Far to much maintenance involved in keeping it running and looking good and I’d never get DW in that camper.

What a vision. Work of art.

That is not a Model A Ford! I have had many.

A Peerless truck?

It looks like a Model A Shay replica, which were not very good replicas.

My Uncle restored Model A’s in Salinas, Ca. I would like to think he would like this one.

The boat on top looks more like a coffin. This would make for a good conversation piece in a campground or parking lot.

I meant the storage box on the trailer looks like a coffin

The paddles are for the boat on top of the Model A. There is also a surfboard which can be used as a paddle board.
