Rare Vintage RV Now Available

The Bowlus Road Chief RV is coming back, according to the blog Wired.

The original Road Chief dates to the 1930s and was created by Hawley Bowlus, the aviation designer who brought us the Spirit of St. Louis. They’re also crazy expensive because they’re incredibly rare. Just 80 were built before World War II, when the company stopped production, the blog reported.

John Long and Helena Mitchell, a husband-and-wife team of Canadian tech entrepreneurs, bought the rights and patents and are launching an update of the 1935 Vintage Bowlus travel trailer. They’ve made the first and have been driving around the U.S. Four more are under construction, andthe couple is taking orders, according to Wired.
