It is easy to forget there was a time where transportation experimentation was global obsession. After the turn of the century there was no shortage of unique, funny and/or ridiculous ideas being tested everywhere from New York City to Munich, Germany. The modern day RV hadn’t set its roots yet but there are a few vehicles that have a likeness to some of the most tried and true RV’s today. Below is a great example a pop up vehicle from a period long before Henry Ford came onto the scene. This “ old motorhome” features a huge increase in living space due to a pop up top.
Old Motorhome with Pop-Up not Pop-Outs

This old motorhome would be quite a site today over a 100 years later. We can only speculate how people from the time must have gawked at this motorhome. The good news: These folks knew how to find a premier RV park even back then. If you notice the background behind the old motorhome, you can see clues that they have made thier camp at the beach!
