Impacted the Popularity in Travel and Camping?

Or... what single vehicle influenced the popularity in travel and camping?

The affordable Model T Ford got more Americans into travel, visiting other states and National Parks, than any other form of transportation. It could be considered the very first off-road vehicle ever produced considering there wern't many paved roads back then, and the Model T could negotiate on almost any terrain.

Amazingly... in this same time frame of the early 1920's. Some ingenious folks were modifying the Model T into RV's! Also, camping trailers were being developed

Interesting History of the Model T production.
