Hemmings blog posted two related items about the Brooks Stevens motorhomes. The first posting noted that a modified version of a Brooks Stevens was for sale at Hemmings, at a price of $150,000 (photo below). The second provided a history of the Brooks Stevens vehicles. Apparently, while driving one to the New York World's Fair in 1940, Stevens was pulled over in Manhattan for driving a commercial vehicle on Fifth Avenue. Stevens replied, "This, Officer, is not a truck. It is a housecar." He then made his way to the fairgrounds, where NBC interviewed him in a live broadcast.
