This is a triple scoop, ice cream Sunday of cool. Your very own motor lodge on wheels, parked to your delight, and dripping with vintage retro hipness. Glampers need apply! Yes, your next getaway could be on a set of some of the coolest wheels in the west; aqua paint, orange interior, mid-century furnishings abound.
Cool creators, Danny and Mary Ann offer you this experience; to stay in one of two restored vintage 1966 Travco motorhomes, a whole bumper to bumper vintage RV experience. Choose between their backyard retreat in the historic Tucson Barrio or find your room on wheels waiting for you at a local campsite of you choice. They suggest the near by Sagurao National Monument State Park and we’d have to agree, it’s a great spot. Check them out at VintageVacations.net
Our friend Capri, owner of the infamous 64′ Travco named Myrtle, found this quaint lil’ spot in the Arizona desert and shared it with all of us. Thanks, Capri. Now, who’s booking a Brinkmobile this weekend?
All great places, even the make-believe ones, are popping up with RV parks. No, not Mister Roger’s Land of Make-Believe, this is a land constructed of 20,000,000 miniature bricks!
How about three million miles with cool gear and serious swagger? Oh, and Ernest Tubb, of course. Nicknamed the Texas Troubadour, Ernest Tubb is one of Country Music’s early pioneers. Read more →
Creating meals while traveling shouldn’t be a task. As a mater of fact, making meals for our hosts along the road has been one of the highlights of our travels. Cooking in my small nomadic kitchen, being a part of community meals, and sharing meals in our host’s home all have been highlights of our traveling experience. We connect over food and learn about the culture while shopping in local grocery stores.
I was lucky enough to get a complementary copy of Jacqui’s cookbook, and can tell you that it’s a great beginners guide, packed with quick, easy, nutritious, and inexpensive recipes for travelers. I love the simple one pot (or pan) dishes like; Toad In A Hole, Greek Lemon Chicken Soup, and No Bake Cocoa Biscuits (a cookie!).
This little cookbook is handier then a pocket on a shirt! You’ll find a variety of quick pasta combinations, learn how to cook a steak, and a simple way to make rice. Plus, the book includes a suggested list of ingredients to carry, and a metrics conversion chart.
The Art Of Roaming Cooking, from author, Jacqui

Straight out of the Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, this caravan is what caviar dreams are made of. Feast your eyes on this luxurious, royal blue, classic automobile; a 1940′s era Cadillac Sixteen Limousine. But that’s not all. In tow is a true American beauty; a well polished, early 1950′s model Royal Mansion travel trailer. Yes, it would be appropriate to whistle… or take a photo like Jim did.
Thank you Jim… and may all of your champagne wishes and caviar dreams catch up to you on the road.

Clark Kent by day, super-VAN by five o’ five on Friday afternoon. These two have it nailed, right? No bickering, just flip, slip, slide… campervan! So, what are you waiting for? *You could be van camping right now.

You might be a Motornomadic if… every beautiful, scenic, travel-scape picture in your trip album, includes your rig.
It’s a form of self induced, “photo bombing” that has taken over road trip albums nation wide. Yup, you know who you are, too. Read more →
What a sight to see, this 70′s era Starcraft motorhome towing another vintage Starcraft down an Alabama highway. Gotta love their style! The Starcraft trailer company is still around today, they’ve actually been making campers since the early 1960′s and these two are clearly keeping the good vibes rollin’.

We got a kick out of this retro road test video taken aboard one of these 1970′s Starcraft coaches in their original hay day. Peep it.
When did you last make a mix tape? Okay, okay… a playlist on your ipod counts, too. Leave this key road trip element to generic radio DJ’s and you’ll be sorry. Even satellite radio lacks the vibe necessary for road worthy tunes. If you only plan one thing Read more →
