September 5, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

From weirdrvs.rvtravel.com comes this unique camper built by Stephen Shives. He calls it his Mobile Mini ManCave. The sleeping area is the sleeper unit from a semi truck. No doubt it draws a lot of attention at the campground.

Unique approach to RVing

From http://weirdrvs.rvtravel.com comes this look at one clever RVer’s answer to boating. The website provider notes: “We are not sure what you would call this thing. We do know that it did not come off as is off any assembly line. Paul Martinez sent us this photo via Facebook.”

This RV would be a good place to be during a flood, but probably not such a good place during an earthquake. It would also not be a good place for anyone prone to sleepwalking. We just hope it’s self contained because it would be a long walk to the potty in the wee hours of the night. Our Facebook friend Paul Martinez alerted us to this photo. He doesn’t know where or when it was taken, which means we don’t know either. All we know is that’s kinda weird.

Off-the-Wall RVs: Don’t Try This at Home

August 31, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

Editor’s Note: The following photo package comes from the Seattle Post Intelligencer blog.

Nomadic people (Greek: nomádes, “those who let pasture herds”) are communities of people who move from one place to another, rather than settling permanently in one location. Nomad. Gypsy. Wanderer. Vagabond. Location-independent traveler. All these terms describe a person who loves variable scenery. They move from neighborhood to neighborhood, town to town, or country to country, doing what human evolution tells them to do: keep moving.

For many years RVs ( travel trailers, campers, fifth-wheesl …) have been offering a great, affordable way of sightseeing and vacationing … Plus high maintenance and gas expenses, storage space problems, minimum privacy ( if you live in RV park). Do I have to mention the whole “carbon footprint” and ” environmental impact ” those gas-guzzling monsters leave as they trail through nature?

For the most “environmentally conscious ” nomads, let me introduce you to … not exactly sure what to call them : camper bike, bike motorhome, bike trailer house?

Completely human powered, about half the size of a normal cab-over camper, and completely emission free, the Camper Bike is designed by Boston-based artist Kevin Cyr. The Camper Bike is both a fully functioning RV and the subject of a number of Cyr’s amazing paintings.

This ‘Woody’ Harkens Back to Surfin’ Era

August 3, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

Tonke-Campers Editor’s Note: This latest “weird RV” comes from Russ and Tina De Maris and  their posting at www.weirdrvs.com.

Every surfing movie from the ’60s must have included the “Woody,” a wood-sided panel truck  or surf-board toting motor vehicle. So how about a “woody motorhome”? The photo is  courtesy of dirtyboy on popupportal.com.

’52 Space-Queen: One Weird Travel Trailer

1952 Queen

1952 Space-Queen

Editor’s Note: This posting comes courtesy of Weird RVs.

The 1952 Space-Queen RV was way ahead of  its time, which, now that we think about it, has still not arrived more than a half century later. The two-story travel trailer was built for only one year. The manufacturer, Gemco Engineering & Manufacturing of Cincinnati, did not stay in business long. The trailer was 26 feet long and eight feet wide. The center bedroom compartment raised to a height of 19 feet. The RV had a fully equipped kitchen, living room and bathroom on the first floor and two bedrooms with double beds on the second.

Unique Fiver, Yes. But What’s That Tow Vehicle?

Russ and Tina De Maris posted this early "fifth-wheel" on their blog at Sorry we don't have much more information on this one. The photographer who caught it wonders if the tow vehicle might've been a hearse in an earlier life.  Courtesy the Sawmill Creek Woodworkers Forum.

How About This Model T and Unique 5th-Wheel

May 26, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 


From Russ and Tina De Maris and their blog at http://weirdrvs.rvtravel.com comes s a bit of the old and the new. A chopped 1927 Model T (we're assuming a new engine package of some sort) and a custom built fifth wheel. It's said the rear-bath 5er is decorated red and white inside. Bet that's a rough night of sleep!
