Would you like to explore the great outdoors? You can learn how to draw a camper and start going on your own outdoor adventures!

A camper, caravan, RV, tourer, or travel trailer - whatever you call it, recreational vehicles can be found around the world.

Furnished travel trailers were first produced commercially in the late 1880s. At that time, they were pulled by horses! By the early 1900s, camping was becoming a popular sport.

Today, campers come in all shapes and sizes, from tiny teardrop trailers and repurposed vans to plush RVs with as much square footage as a small house.

Some are used for "glamping" - camping outdoors in luxury rather than "roughing it."

How can you put this RV trailer cartoon outline to good use? Here are some fun drawing ideas:

  • Create a camper for your dolls or action figures. Paste your drawing to a cardboard shoebox and cut around the door on three sides. Decorate the interior of the shoebox camper with items like a box of supplies, a radio, or a hearty meal.
  • Invite someone to go camping with you! Place this camper cartoon on the front of the invitation.
    Put together a scrapbook or memory book page celebrating a family camping trip.

4. Draw the door and window of the cartoon RV. Use rounded rectangles for each. Draw parallel, horizontal lines across the window and the side of the trailer.

Draw a rounded rectangle within the door to form a window, and a curved triangle within a triangle to form the door handle. Below the door, enclose narrow, horizontal rectangles with rounded corners, and connect them with sets of short lines. These are the stairs.
