RV Museum & Shipshewana
Monday through Wednesday
Went to the RV museum first thing in the morning. They had travel trailers built from the early 1900’s. They were very small & light, as you would suppose; designed to be towed by the very early Ford cars. The first series of Winnebago motorhomes was also displayed along with the classic GMC models from the early ‘70’s.
After that we headed to Shipshewana via Middlebury. Had a good lunch at the Das Dutchman Essenhaus restaurant. Carol was good; she had a fruit/yogurt plate. I had a meatloaf sandwich & mashed potatoes all smothered in gravy.
After lunch we continued to Shipshewana. Stayed in the Shipshewana RV Park. This is right on the grounds of the Flea Market. The market is on Tuesday & Wednesday of each week.
We thoroughly enjoyed these three days. We thought the Green Dragon market in Ephrata, PA was big. This place is huge. Over a hundred vendors, an antique auction, animal auction, on site restaurant, meat & cheese market, on & on. Carol bought a new fleece jacket & some Mary Kay stuff. We got a cedar engraved name sign for use in the campgrounds, (says Ed, Carol & Gopher). I enjoyed the booths with all the dollar stuff. I always found something I just had to have. On Tuesday night we went to dinner. In the morning we head towards Goshen for a few days.
