Astronauts flying on Space Shuttle Endeavour’s maiden voyage were transported to the launch site by RV. Now, twenty years later the Endeavour is flanked by two more RVs as it makes its way through Los Angeles on its final journey to the California Science Center.

During this 48-hour mission, one El Monte RV will serve as mission control for the team charged with securing and transporting the shuttle. The other will be a ready room for the film crew tapped to film this once-in-a-lifetime event.

“El Monte RV is honored to have been selected to provide two motorhomes as Endeavor makes its way through Los Angeles,” says Joe Laing, Director of Marketing for EL Monte RV, headquartered in Santa Fe Springs, CA.

Some of the crew members for this land-based mission have mentioned that the El Monte RVs and Endeavour are similar in many ways. They are self-contained, have plenty of cargo room and have everything you need to take a long trip.

“That’s true,” adds Laing, “but the RVs’ bathrooms are a lot more comfortable.”

While RVs can cruise at high speeds down the highway, on this trip they will be going about two miles per hour. That is a far cry from their normal cruising speeds and a world away from Endeavour’s 17,500 miles-per-hour capabilities.

The Endeavour left its berth early Friday morning and is expected to reach the California Science Center sometime this Saturday.
