The camper, which was manufactured by the Wolverine Camper Company in Glaswin, Michigan, had the feel of a cozy cabin, thanks to its honey-toned wood interior. Although somewhat spartan by today’s standards, the Wolverine was equipped with the basic necessities of a stove, refrigerator, chemical toilet, bed, and table. Amongst the beverages on the table is a bottle of Courvoisier Cognac, a libation that Steinbeck had a predilection for and celebrated in a number of his writings. The typewriter, while not the one that was used to write his travel journals, is similar to the real one, a Swiss-made Hermes Baby, which resides at the Center for Steinbeck Studies at San Jose State University.
