(PDF) EBOOK Download Early Recreational Vehicle Patents: Fifty Pioneering RV Designs from Around the World by Andrew Woodmansey – 91 reviews

What did the first recreational vehicles look like? Who invented them and why? What was the strangest RV ever invented? RV historian Andrew Woodmansey has chosen fifty early patents from around the world to tell the story of the first RVs and their pioneering inventors.Recreational vehicles have a long and fascinating history. The early RV inventors started out with blank sheets of paper to create the first houses on wheels. Camping wagons drawn by horses came first, but with the arrival of the automobile the imagination of RV pioneers ran wild. Mobile houses with engines, trailers carrying tents, collapsing boxes, folding walls and even amphibious caravans came next. In the 1930s we see slide-outs, pop-tops, teardrops and fifth wheelers appear as RV designers tried to make their vehicles more streamlined, more space-efficient and safer.The patents in the book come from six countries: USA, UK, France, Germany, Australia and New Zealand. For each patent the author explains the design’s key features and relevance to the history of the RV.RV patents offer a glimpse into the minds of these inventors. Some ideas were clever, others were strange and a few were just wacky. Most surprising of all is how many ideas are still in use today, with some RV inventions being over 100 years old. This book helps to explain where RVs came from and why they come in the shapes and sizes we see today.
