    yes jim he did creat the first MH ,, but he was not the founding father of the MH ,, and the one that actually produced it ,, ;) ;)
    Here is another clue ,, the first MH that "ray" (last name with held at this time) ,,was a travco on a dodge chassis ,, and a well know CBS personal used it for their remote locations ,, agian (CBS name with held)
    :) :) :) :)
    I guess with that clue ,, i kinda gave it all away ,, if u all do a search on it ,, but i will still wait and see :approve: :approve: :cool: :cool:
    Oh yea since the cat is outta the bag now ,, if u all do ,, do a wilkipedia search ,, type in ,, "father of the Motor Home " it will tell all ,, :approve:
    Just thought this would be kinda fun ,, and now since i kinda told all ,, (it did last 3 days ) ,, anyway ,, it would be nice for more of u to come up with something like this ,, it will take away our winter boardom when it comes around :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :disapprove: :disapprove: :disapprove:
