The Frank Motor Home, Dodge, and Travco

In 1958, Raymond and Ronald Frank, who lived in Brown City, Michigan, built a motorized all-weather recreational vehicle for family vacations. The father/son team’s creation so enthralled the folks around Brown City that between 1958 and 1960 they constructed, using their barn as a factory, seven custom-made motorhomes for their friends. Their creations needed a proper name so they simply christened them the Frank Motor Home.

A Little Travco Trivia...

The country music star Johnny Cash owned and toured in several Dodge Travcos (many of which are included in documentaries and films about him) over the course of his career; William Shatner of 'Star Trek' had a specially customized 1979 Travco with four wheel drive. Travco was considered a leader in the industry, and was the first manufacturer to create a vehicle that defined the modern day Motorhome. Lucille Ball used a Dodge, Travco throughout the first four episodes of season 2, as Lucy, Harry, Kim and Craig take a road trip to Colorado. Gary Player rode with the Team Lotus in a specially outfitted Dodge,Travco.
