RV/MH Hall of Fame

Virtually everyone has heard of the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York or the Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. Considerably fewer have heard of the RV and Motor Home Hall of Fame in Elkhart, Indiana. The facility offers an interesting glimpse into the history and development of the RV/MH culture and all that it has meant to RV enthusiasts throughout the years.

The husband and wife team of Boots and Betty Ingram were instrumental in pushing for the facility to become more than a museum, but also a library and a conference center. Boots Ingram was very involved in the industry from the position of an RV businessman and manufacturer. His influence helped to lay the groundwork to keep the RV/MH Hall of Fame from closing due to financial reasons during recent economic struggles. Because of the Ingram family’s generosity the Hall has visions of a brighter future and growth.

A visit to the facility gives campers a great perspective on just how far the RV industry has come. The imagination of early RV pioneers is creatively displayed in a variety of exhibits sure to amaze the modern day traveler. Take a walk through a time when motorized vehicles were just beginning to be developed.

Those considering a visit might want to check the RV/MH Hall of Fame’s website (www.rvmhhalloffame.org) to see what events are happening throughout the year. It is hoped that the event calendar and the changing exhibits will help to draw in more and more visitors who all share a common love of the RV lifestyle. Members of the RV community have an individual understanding of what RVing means to them. The Hall of Fame provides a common ground to celebrate that lifestyle and the pioneers who helped develop it.
