MEDINA, Ohio (AP) — A dilapidated recreational vehicle that played a memorable role in a beloved Christmas movie has been vandalized at an Ohio museum.

The owner of the Castle Noel museum in Medina (meh-DY'-nuh), just south of Cleveland, reports that Cousin Eddie's rusty camper from "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation" was damaged sometime last week.

The Northeast Ohio Media Group (http://bit.ly/1CH5G4r ) reports that a ladder was taken off the back of the vehicle, a tail light was smashed, an antenna was broken and a side panel was removed, according to a police report.

The RV brought Cousin Eddie, played by Randy Quaid, and family to the Griswold house for Christmas in the 1989 comedy starring Chevy Chase. The museum features other props and costumes from Christmas films.
