Note: This is an updated repost of a blog from January, 2013.

I thought we’d start your weekend off with a chuckle or two about what you may see in a campsite near you one of these days.

We’ve seen some oddball RVs in our travels around the country, and if you’ve spent much time on the road you probably have, too. Sometimes I’ve just had to scratch my head and ask “Why” but I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Here are some we’ve seen and others that readers have sent us.

This might be a good choice if you prefer a smaller campsite.

And this must be what happens when you breed a Volkswagen with a Winnebago.

Actually, I think this truck conversion looks pretty cool.Carolyn hatch utah

I can’t say the same thing for this thing.

Apparently putting campers on trailers is popular with a lot of people.

Or, you could put one on top of your truck.

Some of the bus converters can get pretty creative.

I don’t think this bus Jim Aslin sent us has moved in a very long time.

You know that old saying about keeping the shiny side up and the greasy side down? Whoever made this thing that Joyce Space photographed in Albuquerque apparently never heard it.

I wonder if the guy with the two-sided bus tows this behind him?

Sometimes smaller is better.

Have you seen some strange looking RVs? If so, send me a picture. If we get enough I’ll run a sequel to this blog one of these days.

Thought For The Day – I’d drink more water if it was frozen and surrounded by bourbon.

  1. How I missed that Blog back then I don’t know but there are definitely some cute conversions but also some that belong at the Slabs. (Drove through there.)
    Thanks for the Encouragement.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It’s about time.

  2. Nick, That was a WinneBUG-O
