Here are four really unique (as in weird, wacky or wonderful) RVs. Who wants to be ordinary? Not the owners of these one-of-a-kind recreational vehicles.
There is no doubt this is weird and wonderful and would turn heads in every RV park where it appeared. We know little about this recreational vehicle other than it has California license plates and the flames are very cool. Hey, those Californians are known for being a little offbeat, right?
When it comes to RVs that can accommodate a big family, this might take the cake. And that’s probably its most unique feature. The downside, of course, is that even with tent trailer folded down, the overall height of the two-story rig might not be too well-suited to passing beneath underpasses or through tunnels.
DC-3 airplanes were the most popular airliners in the early days of commercial aviation. They are still used today in some third world countries or other small countries for short hops. But this old crashed airliner from Down Under has a different use these days – as a recreational vehicle. Oh, it’s not only unusual on the outside, but inside, too, where it features a pianola (self-playing pipe organ) and a button accordion.
Okay, if you can turn a plane into an RV, you can certainly turn a train into an RV. This one modeled as a Santa Fe Diesel engine was built for the 1948-49 Chicago Railroad Fair, held to observe 100 years of American railroading. But, we must be totally honest with you and confess this wasn’t originally a real engine and, alas, it’s used more as a party bus than an RV. But it looks good, so we’ll include it here anyway.
Please send us any odd looking RVs you spot or photos you come across. We’ll showcase as many as we can in a future issues.
