In honor of RV Week, we’re throwing it back to the 1960s and 70s when RVs became an increasingly popular mode of transportation for road trips and long family vacations. Pictured above, a family picnics outside their RV travel camper while on an outdoor camping trip in 1966.

This summer, whether you’re in a vintage RV or luxury one, hit the road to experience some of the most scenic RV road trips across the US.

And don’t forget to check back every week in July for our Vintage Summer Throwback Thursdays.

    For a great trip back to the past of America's longtime love with road trips, be sure to check out the annual Palm Springs Modernism Week vintage travel trailer and RV event held each February.

    Primarily focused on mid-century modern architecture and home tours, the fully restored vintage travel trailers, along with a far-out RV or two, are also a must-see — and fascinating to look through in person.

    Here's a link to a photo (and article) on one of the awesome RVs that was displayed at the show in 2012:
