Beatrice Daily Sun (Newspaper) - July 21, 1973, Beatrice, Nebraska Americans hell Bent on roughing it. Comfortably a ass Washington Nea americans with coins jingling in their pockets and four Day weekends facing them Are hell Bent on finding an escape from the pressure of civilization that provided them both the Money and the Leisure time. And ifs All so simple see you just plunk Down $10,000 to $30,000 for a trailer camper or a Mote. Home and you can hit the Road in a Way that Jack Kerouac and John Steinbeck never dreamed possible. Recreational veh cles called a rec veese by the fraternal members Are filling the highways. Their number Rose from 83,500 in 1961 to Well Over 6.5 million today with a five fold increase expected Over the next three years. It used to be that you lugged an old dome topped aluminium trailer out into the wilds Andi some of the campsites Are roughed it All by yourself but almost As Plush As the rec vees today a rec Vee owners Are More themselves. Tennis courts demanding of luxury and less swimming pools even cocktail concerned with privacy. Trailer Camps cover the country and even with the5r spectacular increase rec Vee owners Are often crushed to find that All available water sewer and electrical Hook Are rented when they wobble into a Camp after dark. Some Relief from this problem was obtained last year when a new computerized camping system was installed in the National Park service. Hertz ramada inn and american express initiated the dial a campsite system in Yellowstone and grand Teton Parks in Wyoming Yosemite in California grand Canyon in Arizona and Acadia in Maine. Lounges Are offered to the family out roughing it in its fibreglass aluminium Van. There Are Bike paths and wooded walks for nature lovers racing space for those who bring along their Dune buggies and motorcycles. The stardust hotel in Las vegas offers 200 campsites with a swimming Pool Bathhouse and laundry room. It does no to have its own Casino yet but the facility is so popular that 700,000 campers have used it since january. There is now a three Day parking limit. But a limitation of parking time does no to cramp the style of the average rec Vee owner one Whit. Mobility is the whole Point. Few campers Park for longer than overnight. One retired Man told time Magazine that he and his wife were planning to Camp in different Sites for 52 weeks until they decided on a place to live. This new recreational trend makes America seem like a giant ant Hill that has just been stirred with a stick. Everyone is on the move. And curiously the rec Vee owners show very Little american Pioneer spirit when venturing into the unknown. There is Little evidence that this Herd of suburban expatriates can endure the rustic byways if deprived too Long of their comforts. A certain tension sets in if a family finds itself stranded More than 20 minutes away from room service. And so the motor Home the the floors Are covered with camper Van the rec Vee has i marbleized Vinyl partially Laid evolved As a monstrous joke on with shag carpeting. Instruction the american tradition of caning out the wilderness and establishing a new Frontier. Motor Homes Are a piece of Suburbia bound in Chrome on six wheels. They Are air con a i t i o n e d and heated stereophonic sound and Crank up to antennae Are optional. There Are electric lights for the night time and plastic Bubble skylights for the Day. Rubber foam mattresses and to Lounger chairs Are upholstered in color coordinated scotch guarded fabrics. The Kitchen is equipped with oven stove fridge Freezer and a sink with hot and cold running water. There is a bathroom with a Shower Basin and flush toilet. Books provide advice to the Mobile homemaker on How to mop Wax and shampoo them. Electrical outlets ensure that she will not be deprived of her electric Broom and Buffer her television for soap operas or the trusty toaster. To form some Touchstone of permanence the owners of these rec vees obviously unnerved by All this Freedom band together across state lines in clubs that Are based on the Brand of motor Home they purchased. Financed partly by the manufacturers they often travel in Highway caravans to a specified campsite for rallies or a a jamborees that Are planned by their elected the International fan Traver club s july 1970 rally was called a Christmas in the members met together for Fellowship comforted that their Mobile split level Homes on wheels were once again settled into some semblance of the neighbourhood living from which they sought to escape. They decorated their trailers with Christmas lights and sat around the campfire batting mosquitoes and s5nging yuletide carols. The Only thing missing was the Pat and the Little league. Americans have abandoned the work ethic As anyone who has Ever tried to have a television set repaired knows. And it looks As though they have a Long Way to go before they polish up the new found play ethic.
