You might think that a lot has changed in nearly 80 years, and of course a lot has. But still much remains the same. This vintage footage of an RV park from 1937 shows, some might say, an eerie resemblance to today’s campgrounds.
Sure, the campers are much smaller (in most cases) and the technology isn’t there. Still these original snowbirds look like they’re quite happy with their choice of lifestyle. Hey, they even had DIY RVs back then too!

Holy cow! $1 per week, and a whole quarter for electricity? Boy, those were the days (except for the total lack of air conditioning and Internet access). And to think this video dates from the latter parts of the Great Depression – wow.

Thanks Sherry, that is a funny movie!
Made me think of that movie The Long Long Trailer with Lucille Ball! 🙂
