I’m back to drawing another RV, the fourth one in my series. This time it’s personal because my father had this very model by Chevrolet called the Mobile Traveler. The MT was modest in size but had all the necessities for road tripping – bathroom with shower, stove, fridge, a master bed that converted into a dining table, closet space and my favorite spot, a hidden bed area (above the driver). This is where I could look out the front window while dad was driving us to the next cool destination. Good memories.

The Winnebago was a unique looking RV from the late 60’s with its strange polygonal shapes. It continued to be popular into the 70’s and 80’s. The brand was unmistakable. It had a “flying W” logo that stretched the entire length of the mobile home. A more contemporary, cooler-looking version of the Winnebago appeared in the movie Space Balls… with wings too.

The awesome Airstream recreational vehicles have an unmistakeable look. Even in the 1930’s when they began, Airstreams were futuristic with the chrome reflective exterior and rounded corners.

Airstreams were used by NASA in the 1960’s to put astronauts from space in quarantine during a time when the world was afraid of martian stuff. Airstreams have such a caché that they appeared in hollywood movies, like in Armageddon, and tv, most recently in the Mentalist, which Partrick Jane lived in for the final season.

This drawing of mine is of a modern Airstream model. It is super cute, being the smallest and lightest model, called the Sport. However, the Sport is not the cheapest of RV’s, coming in at above $30,000.

It’s a lazy Sunday. Though, still a great time to take the bike out and hit a trail.
Here’s my drawing of the lovable Mini Cooper.

Happy 4th of July weekend y’all!
