We had this crazy idea that the best way to help others avoid loss and injury to fire with their RVs is by actually catching an RV on Fire on purpose.
The more tricky part would be finding an RV that people watching the fire could relate to. It needed to be nice enough that people could imagine it being a normally functioning and regularly used RV.
The best fit for our RV fire was this 1973 Winnebago Indian 22 motorhome. The owners had some wonderful travels and memories with it for years after they bought it.
Our first hope was to do the fire in or near a salvage yard so that the RV chassis would not need to be moved again once we were done.
Though we could buy the RV for one dollar, we couldn’t just drive off in our new RV. We had to hire a tow truck to drag it out of the field and up to the RV burn location.
