The Bowlus Road Chief just begs you to hit the open road. Joined together by over 5,000 rivets to form a single, “monocoque” shell.
Bowlus on the monocoque structure: Way back in 1934, Hawley Bowlus, the inventor of the original Bowlus Road Chief, knew that the best way to build a light and strong travel trailer was to emulate aircraft design. He took aircraft-grade aluminum sheets and riveted them together over a lightweight skeleton to form a single, tight, and incredibly durable monocoque structure.
“Engineered for the highest levels of quality and durability. Its body is joined together by over 5,000 hand-bucked rivets to form a single, incredibly tough “monocoque” shell. The Bowlus Road Chief makes use of authentic materials like birch, aluminum and brass, and its interior is trimmed in premium fabrics chosen for optimum comfort and wear.”

It’s been a couple of weeks since we returned from a whirlwind trip to the City That Never Sleeps. Gathering sources and ideas for our new online store. We were lucky enough to indulge in the Pop Up Flea — a smörgasbord of manly style, fashion, and accessories. Giddy up.
This exceptional medieval sword caught my eye in a Aragorn/Lord of The Rings kind of way. From the wear and tear on this bad boy, I have no doubt this early self-defense tool served its owner well.
“With flat tapering double-edged blade of flattened hexagonal section with a wide shallow fuller extending over half its length on both sides, the forte on both sides incised with a comet-shaped mark retaining traces of latten, and on one side with inscriptions in naskh script.
The hilt comprising straight quillons of rectangular section widening towards the tips, later cord-bound leather-covered grip, and large slightly compressed chamfered wheel pommel with rounded button and inlaid on each side with a cross potent in copper and latten.” – bonhams
I still remember this legendary fight so clearly. Most fight experts believed Ali didn’t have a prayer against George Foreman. Little did they know that Ali had a little plan called the “Rope-a-Dope” strategy to wear down Foreman in that hellish heat of Zaire.
