This is an industry driven museum celebrating the history of the RV industry as a whole. They play special homage to the significance Elkhart, IN played in creating an entire industry revolving around traveling via mobile vehicles.

The price to enter is $12 per person, they do offer senior, child and family discounts.

What you get for your entrance fee:
~ A 7 minute (outdated) video that very briefly describes the reason for the museum and the importance of Elkhart in the RV industry, a quick overview of the property grounds and the notable members of the RV Hall of Fame.

~GoRVing hall - a very cool scale model of a TT factory with a detailed description of each station throughout the build process, a few unique RVs and an explanation of the history behind GoRVing.

~RV Founders Hall - tons of historical RVs/TT on display including the “oldest TT in the world a 1913 TT built for a model T” They have placed period specific items in the the display units to set the feel for when they were built, you can walk into some of the units and we really enjoyed getting to read about each RV on display.

~ Exhibitors Hall - we didn’t go to this area but it’s where current items used in the RV building process are housed.

~ Upstairs there is a “library” of magazines, photos, periodicals you can look through, we enjoyed seeing the ads for RVs dating back to 1950s. This is also where the “RV Hall of Fame” portraits can be found

We travel full time in our RV so it was interesting to see how far RV building has come but also how similar it is today to some of the models on display. It’s a fun way to spend a rainy afternoon and the money for the museum continues their mission to encourage people to hit the road and enjoy the outdoors.

Tip: You can visit the museum gift shop without paying the museum fee if you just want to pick up some cute RV themed gifts.

We visited her on March 19 mid morning and had the place to ourselves. It was fun seeing the collection of RVs ranging from 1913 to the present. One striking thing we noticed in the "Hall of Fame" is how few women have received accolades in this industry. Personality feel that sad. I hope going forward more women will become involved in this growing industry.

It was great fun to be seeing this amazing collection of RVs. There were so many to view and there were several we could walk through. There were many oldies from the first pop-up camper to ones made out of unusual materials. Wow!
We certainly learned a lot, had a great time and discovered that Elkhart is the RV capital of the USA.

If you’re into RV’s and the history of them, then you will like this museum. From the world’s oldest recreational vehicle to the latest models, this place takes you through the history of this genre of vehicles. If you’re in the area and have an interest then you will enjoy this place.

Spent a couple hours here looking at mostly vintage campers. Wish they would have offered more new models to look at. Beautiful place and enjoyable experience.
