RV Museum

Elkhart, if you didn't already know, is the hub of RV manufacturing.  Although our Teton was made in Casper, Wyoming, many of the big RV companies are located right here.  So while we were here as a captive audience, we took the bike to the RV/Motorhome Hall of Fame and Museum located a few miles from where we are staying.  It's a beautiful facility with RV's going back to 1913.  They also house the largest library of RV books and magazines that the Smithsonian has used many times in their own research.  It was a fun couple of hours seeing the way that our lifestyle has developed over the past century. I recommend it highly if you're in the area.

Excuse the pics, but I took them with my phone.

Mae West's trailer.  She often put a rocking chair on the back porch while she talked to people.
