<span class="ev_code_PURPLE">Did anyone watch it last night ?? I thought it was pretty interesting. I wish it has been longer so we could have seen a few more RV's and maybe some gadgets and upgrade ideas.

I had never seen the "A frame" style pop up, or the tiny travel trailer with the tent attached at the back for extra sleeping. I thought the teardrops were very innovative too.

I was really impressed with the Grand Junction 5ver with the island, granite counter tops and fireplace. I believe it was $186,000 !! And that doesn't include the tow vehicle of course

The Prevost was impressive of course. Not my style inside, but I LOVED the outside entertainment features. Flat screen tv, mini fridge, built in grill and tool box.

I thought one of the neatest things was the class "a" that had the dual motorcycle storage slides. I wish we could have seen the inside of that one !!</span>

I saw the last half of the show last night. Like you, I wish they had shown more gadgets, but oh, well....

Just a couple of weeks ago, we were camping at our favorite park when a couple pulled in towing one of those A-Liner trailers. We were amazed when they told us that they are full-timers! That's just a little bit too much togetherness for me to full time in. Then they told us that they have a class-A motorhome that they live in and just use the little rig to weekend in. They were going to a rally of A-liners in Louisiana that weekend.

I'm not into motorcycles, so the motorhome with the dual slide m/c carrier was kind of neat. And of course, the Prevost for $2,000,000 was sooo fine. When I win the lottery...

Would have missed it but my son called me from PA telling me to turn on HGTV.

Was going to buy the $2,000,000 Prevost but they didn't give an 800 number!

Hi all,

We also watched the show last night, but still think going to the show is much better! Also they put prices on the rigs, but wished they would have giving the prices on the few gadgets that they did show! Anyway it was another good thing to help get us thru winter and into the new RV Season !!

As the shows now are including 2008 models I'm really thinking that show HAD to be a repeat,especially since Winnebago Industries has introduced a coach on the new UFO at recent shows I've attended lately.

I liked all the bells and whistles on the Prevost but $2M!!! That seemed excessive. The prices in general seemed really high but of course that's full retail prices they are quoting. It is fun to see all the different types of rvs. We are sticking with our 5th wheel for now. It's going to get some things fixed up in another month so we will be ready for the summer.

I watched and enjoyed it, but I really wanted more than they had time to show.

Also I did attend the large RV Show in Tampa, Florida and saw much more there.

I also wanted to see more gadgets.

There will probably be an '08 version after the show in Hershey this year. That seems to be the show they highlight.

I think it might encourage more people to start RV'ing if they would show more trailers and fivers and BRIEFLY touch on the expensive stuff. If I had seen that show (and did not know better), I would have decided that there was no way I could afford something halfway decent to hit the road with.

I, too, would have liked to have seen more of the gadgets. I want the RV Today Show back on TV!!!
