eBook No. 1
Early Recreational Vehicle Patents
How did we end up with the RV designs of today? Why don’t we have folding RVs? Three-wheeled RVs? Even amphibious RVs?
From his collection of several hundred pre-WW2 RV patents, the author has curated fifty noteworthy RV-related patents from 1889 to 1938 from six countries. There are twenty-three patents from the USA, nineteen from the UK, three from New Zealand, two each from France and Australia and one from Germany. Some are clever, some are weird and a few are just silly.
For each invention the author summarizes their special features and relevance. Readers might just be amazed how old some of our RV designs are. This book is a short but fascinating homage to the inventors and designers that made the RV what it is today.
