Although I grew up traveling quite a bit, I didn’t grow up crossing the country in a trailer. So, the idea of stopping every now and then to experience the country was very different than landing in airports. But, I was fascinated by packing up your stuff in a cool trailer and just heading out without a pinpoint itinerary.

Back in the ‘30s, the Bowlus Road Chief provided just that. The notion and an inspiration from his daughter, John Long set out to create a 21st Century Bowlus Trailer that was chock full of travel comforts and high exploratory aspirations.
