VW 5th Wheel Shadow Camper Package...Circa '74

Attention RV owners and dreamers…are you looking for a weekend trek to a “not too distant Shangri-la”? Direct from the trailer state of Indiana, here’s a snappy solution…circa 1974. You know how small spaces can make us campers cranky…"we suggest the occupants be friendly," okay?

Look out…this short RV video will have you grinning from ear to ear, make you say groovy…and most likely both! It really is far out.

Remember, drive carefully, show a little courtesy and you’ll have a much happier trip…bye, bye.

Did you know that 2010 celebrates the RV Centennial - 100 wonderful wandering years!

I definitely want one. Wouldn't it be a hoot to drive?

That's really cool. Why go big right? I had a 1970 VW camper and loved it. I had never even heard of this "mini car" 5th wheel. Cool!

Harmon Industries in Warrensburg, MO actually produced these campers for a couple of years and they were a lot nicer than the one in the video. My dad worked for the company and we owned one around 1973-74, we pulled it with a Toyota Celica. The 70's oil embargo doomed the RV industry at that time. Harmon industries quit manufacturing them and concentrated on its Railroad Electronics division. My dad worked for them for 37 years. Harmon Industries was bought by GE around 2002.
