WOW...What a let down....
This young couple were completely clueless about the negotiation process and the sales person probably made a killing on them. I loved watching the show though... I laughed at their inexperience and would have liked to see HGTV explore more couples before choosing them. They looked at all of the RV's with no sense of re-sale value and although I could sense their perspective of "green value"....do they realize that many of us spend months in a place and therefore have no real carbon fuel costs???
I was also offended when they looked at the Forest River Charleston and said that it had no design sense. Although I do not have that particular RV...We have an American Coach Revolution, I really felt that the Charleston had a very solid and timeless sense of style. I guess to each...thier own. But to say that that RV lacked a sense of style....I was offended.... Maybe Nikki and her husband love a bleached, curved minimilist style, but that does not mean that many of the Rv's of the market today lack style....
Furthermore....I imagine that if they want to bop around every day and move from place to place...they should be looking at an even more small and more fuel efficient unit but honestly, if they wanted that...they could have been even smarter. For all of their talk about wanting to be "green" and fuel efficient...they could have chosen another path....
I would love to have seen their website send more of a message to all Rv'ers and not just yuppie folks that want to see how many "fun places: they can go in a year or two. I wish them great journeys, yet the journeys of my hubby and myself will be just as great and maybe not as flashy or the type stat say...."Look at ME...and see me having fun..."""
I know of a great number of blogs that I will be looking at before theirs....
