Town & Country magazine featured two RV stories across six pages of its August issue. The first story touches on RV history, but focuses on a father’s rental RV trip with his daughter and a friend, according to a news release from the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA).
Despite a driving rainstorm, they enjoyed their trip in a Fleetwood motorhome provided by El Monte RV.
One story mentions, “The campground, of course, was a magical realm of nature trails, mini golf, game room and pool. We picked wildflowers and played on a tire swing. We walked among towering maples and oaks and little streams, checking out Jesus bugs and encountering the cute little orange newts known as red efts.”
The story included a sidebar showing pictures of RVs through the years, starting with the Pierce-Arrow Touring Landau and ending with movie star Will Smith’s luxury trailer.
The second article chronicled the RV trip of Princess Marie-Chantal of Greece through the American West. The princess and a travel party consisting of her husband, a friend, and nine children rented two luxurious Winnebagos from Allstar Coaches — complete with drivers — for a 10-day trip that included stops at the Hoover Dam, Mount Rushmore, and the Grand Canyon.
The princess and her sister are already planning another RV road trip, this time in California, according to Town & Country. The only thing they’d do differently? Reduce the 12 suitcases they brought along. “Next time I am definitely packing less,” said Princess Marie-Chantal.
