The 1941 Western Flyer Motorhome is an unusual looking RV. It seems almost timeless. It’s hard to tell if it’s from 1941 or 2001. No doubt a testament to Brooks Stevens, the renowned industrial designer from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Stevens is responsible for many designs such as the Willys pickup truck, Jeepster, Jeep Wagoneer, and the Studebaker Gran Turismo Hawk. He even played a role in the early years of the Weinermobile design!

Thankfully he spent some time on an RV and brought us the Western Flyer Motorhome. The design is part time machine, locomotive, and Cadillac. The ridiculous rear wing tops off the whole package as one of the most interesting motorhomes ever made. It would clearly fall under a Class B in this day and age. You’d be hard-pressed to find another Class B motorhome with as much style as the 1941 Western Flyer.
