Road Abodes

what your camper says about you

What your rig says about you.

Gone are the days when campers were only seen at KOAs or Walmart parking lots. Everywhere you go, there seems to be another form of shelter on wheels, each bigger and with more bells & whistles than the last. But different styles of camper attract different sorts of folk, and we’ve begun to notice a pattern among the camper connoisseurs. Have a look.
