Their site's a little weird. If you look under licensed brands for national lampoons the you don't see it, but if you look under snow village, you can find them.

Mobile right now otherwise I'd link it for ya.

It is amazing what that movie did to the RVing image. Our daughter, who lives in Scottsdale believes we look like that even though she never saw our unit.

Our daughter in Maryland won't let us bring our camper to her house, she's worried her father has a robe like cousin Eddie.

A movie that didn't get many good reviews it evolved into a classic thanks to Randy Quaid & Chevy Chase...
