Can you guess what decade these vintage camper ads are from?

Take a road trip down memory lane with these nostalgic vans, RVs and trailers.


Modern motorhomes may have amenities like TVs and microwaves but there’s nothing like the comfort of a classic Airstream or the style of a pop-top VW bus.

Starting in the 1950s, Americans put the new interstate highway system to good use exploring long stretches of the country by car and recreational vehicle companies soon caught up with the demand for houses on wheels.

Here are 12 vintage ads from the 1950s-1980s guaranteed to make you nostalgic for a cross-country road trip. Can you guess which decade each camper is from?

11/12 - How would you like to haul the trailer in #10, especially around inclining, winding mountain passes, without guardrails, and a fully loaded log truck meeting you at one of those corners; he’s on the inside lane and, you’re not?? 👀

6/12. Was a fun quiz in spite of my score. A real tour of the “long trailer” would be cool to see 😜
