Camper & RV Humor: The Illustrated Story of Camping Comedy

By John Brunkowski, Michael Closen
This amusing book covers early camping history, RV designs, road conditions, driving habits, campground issues, and more, with a twist. Things go wrong in each and every chapter, and that is where the humour arises. Some 230 photos (both black-and-white and colour) of over 290 separate postcards from the authors' personal collection illustrate the fun. Because camping and RVing are so popular all around the world, numerous postcards from Australia, Canada, England, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, and more, are included from the early 1900s to the early 2000s. Many images shown are quite scarce, and some are truly rare. The text and illustrations tell the humorous side of camping and RVing, past and present. All the postcards illustrated are described in detailed captions, which include each card's age, size, maker, and estimated value. The unique approach of this new book makes it stand alone as both a resource for information and a source of good old-fashioned entertainment.

John Brunkowski began RVing with his parents and has been collecting toys for over 40 years. Currently he owns two full-size vintage travel trailers, a 1948 Vagabond and a 1966 Airstream. Michael Closen has been collecting RV toys for about 20 years and has a Monaco brand motorhome. Together they have amassed the largest collection of RV/Camper toys and have chosen the best of the best from their collection. They have also written articles on RV toy collecting for Family Motor Coaching and Airstream Life magazines, and are the leading authorities on this subject. Rich Lurh is an avid Airstream enthusiast, Publisher & Editor of Airstream Life magazine.
