Jan. 22, 1922. Washington, D.C. Woman in three-wheeled vehicle. I wish I knew more about this photo and the vehicle in particular.
I don't really know anything about this beautiful rig but I like what I see. A converted mower in front as a tow vehicle and it's pulling a little trailer of it's own behind. If anyone knows any more about this one please let me know! I found it on Tumblr but was able to … Continue reading A Slow Moving Beauty

This house (click to enlarge) is quite a piece of woodworking. Shingle siding all glass door, sturdy balcony, beautiful windows, under storage, … Continue reading A 1926 Home Built Camper Truck

As things stand today, there are few roads you could safely travel … Continue reading Camper Bicycle

Seen on the Road to Glamperland Facebook page.
