Recreational Vehicles are popular today around the country as vacation mediums, but did you know that they originate way back as horse-drawn wagons? That’s right—the concept of an RV was dreamed up by individuals who traveled in and lived out of their horse-drawn, covered wagons throughout Europe in the 1800s.
Since then, RV technology and amenities has clearly come a long, long way. Many RVs today are equipped with complete entertainment systems, fully-equipped mini kitchens, beds, and even washers and dryers. More than permanent, transportable homes, RVs today are widely used for long road trips and vacation stays, often at natural parks and usually at RV parks.
