Hemmings Motor News Blog

Hemmings Motor News has been around since 1954. We're proud of our heritage, but we're also more than the Hemmings full of classifieds that your father subscribed to. Aside from new editorial content every month in Hemmings, we have three monthly magazines: Hemmings Muscle Machines, Hemmings Classic Car and Hemmings Sports and Exotic Car.

While our editors traverse the country to find the best content for those magazines, we find other oddities related to the old-car hobby that we really had no place for - until now. With this blog, we're giving you a behind-the-scenes look at what we see and what we do during the course of putting out some of the finest automotive magazines you'll ever read.

I mostly ignore or forward press releases that land in my Inbox. Nine times out of 10, they're useless. So a few months ago, I was about to delete one from the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association announcing the centennial of the RV this year because, honestly, it sounded like a snoozer. The press release did include a couple random pictures, however, including this one of the Hunt housecar (left).

It also included the following reasoning for the centennial celebration, that "the roots of RVing are as old as pioneers and covered wagons." The RV industry began in 1910, according to America's leading RV historians — David Woodworth, Al Hesselbart and Roger White - with the mass production of the first RVs. "Before then, people camped in private rail cars that were pulled to sidings along train routes."
