Sure looked that way to me as well when I saw that. Can't wait to tape that show too.

LOVE that there is RV-related programming on at all!

These shows just remind me how much money I don't have. They should have a show about doing rather cool updates/mods to RVs that those of is without millions to spend can actually do.

Just have to find out who is sponsoring the shows. Newmar, Thor, Winnebago have very little interest in having you modernize and upgrade your old RV.

Perhaps someone should start a "This Old House RV" show.

This show has become sick, ostentatious, and unrepresentative of RVing in the US. They should retitle to lifestyles of the rich and famous. They most sickening was the father son Prevost combination. Who gives their son a 1m+ coach, puts it out there on TV, and is seeking anything more than "look at me". Makes me wonder if he really put it in his son's name...if so, maybe the IRS needs to look at the gift tax aspect...hmmmm, 50% tax, well maybe not!

Right on !! I would be an avid fan if the program didn't devolve into one of those goofy scripted personality clash, tool throwing fests where everyone is rushing around to meet some sort of contrived deadline.

Last nights shows featured a converted Spaceliner, a converted MCI bus, a fifth wheel, a Featherlite, Thor Outlaw,and a horse trailer with living quarters. Pretty representative if you ask me.

Some people think Entegras, American Coach, King Aires, etc are ostentatious, so it's all relative.

I believe there's someone who's filming such a thing. Getting a network to buy it & broadcast it....well, that's another story.

I do remember seeing a show on the Tin-Can Tourists. Now THAT was cool what all those folks did with their little TT's.

Yes ; met him at the tampa show couple years ago. He said he would help me with my serrano problems. So I emailed him my list and he dropped me like a rotten egg. Zero help from thor. Oh they dropped serrano too.

Yes; Adam Gudger Veteran of Diesel Motorhomes Hired to Sales | Thor Motor Coach #1 Brand of Motorhomes | Diesel Pushers,Class A,Class B,& Class C RV s

And Jon Krider (TMC Dir. of Marketing) did a good job too:
http://www.linkedin.com/pub/jon-krider/8/5b4/9b7

Too bad the Outlaw segment was washed over by the owner selected interior details of the custom $2.3mil Featherlite Vantare mega-coach that was planned for use by a family to travel between their NJ home and their retreat in NC ...sheesh!

But, I liked seeing the Outlaw!

Every now and then in watch TV and I'm amazed how far it has degraded. Maybe produce a big foot edition extreme RV edition of the show. Followed by a honey boo edition of long island medium. Turn off the TV and go for a walk in the woods or start working on a cool modificstion to your own rig...time we'll spent. \sarc

Come on guys !!! why tear down someone else when you should be happy that we live somewhere that we can do the same ?!?


TV is an aside only - and IMHO - it's great they are presenting rv based stuff... that I can set teh dvr to record and watch or delete WHEN and IF we want...

I, for one, am not jealous of others because of the benefits of THEIR hard work or inheritance or whatever ... their choices - their results, so maybe we should be a lil envious rather than jealous ?!? just saying....
