Today we decided to drive to Elkhart to see the RV hall of Fame. We wanted to see it last time we were going through Indiana, but didn't have the time.
When we got there we had a bonus. There were several old Pontiac's in the parking lot. It was a group of antique Pontiac owners that had stopped to see the old RVs. When we got through they were gone. They all looked like they had been restored and the 1916 looked like the day it drove away from the dealers lot. There were a lot more, but I only put a few of the pictures on the post.
We then started through the old RVs and what they were like, some from the 1910's. They didn't seem to be laid out in any particular order. We enjoyed seeing some of the older and some not so old RVs. The oldest trailer was made in 1913. They had it being pulled by a Model T Ford.
There is every imaginable travel trailer in the museum, from tiny tear drops to a long Mobil home.
The last picture is of a newer fifth wheel. We couldn't imagine how much they have changed from the early ones.
After the Hall of Fame, we went back to Shipshewana and drove around a little bit. We especially liked the horse drawn buggy pulling a boat.
We saw what we thought was an Amish school. We also had been told about what looked like an outhouse in front of a lot of the Amish homes, are actually phone rooms.
Next we went to the store in Shipshewana where we had seen a lot of buggies tied up. It is kind of a damaged and old date store. The prices seemed pretty good. We bought some thin sliced bacon for about $1.69 a pound and some more fresh tomatoes and had BLT's tonight. They were very good.

Thanks for visiting.
