Travel Nostalgia ~ The 1910 Stoddard-Dayton Camping Car
Photograph from Library of Congress (1910)
This is the 1910 Stoddard-David Camping Car. Its owner, Senator T. Colman du Pont bought it to live in as he was promoting a highway running due north and south through his home state of Delaware. As you can see, today’s side flip-out motor homes have nothing over this baby.
This was a rich man’s automobile. The sticker price on these cars were anywhere from $1,200 – $6,200, while Ford was cranking out the Model T for $399.
