It is interesting to watch I guess, we do, but I laugh that they say they have 100,000 to spend... They are shown a 500,000 rig, a 30,0000 rig then the 98,000 rig that they love and buy... But it is TV, just meant for entertainment value.

I miss that RV show that used to be on with some guy name Stu maybe. Used to actually show you repairs, upgrades and places to travel... That is an RV show to me!

........and this is 1 of the why's as to why I don't own a TV. there is rarely anything worth watching.
When I first saw this thread I thought it was going to be about forum members experience with RV shopping, etc; how's; why's where-to-for's whatnot's & whatever.....
But .....Really?? An entire planet to explore, study & experience but I'd rather watch a show like this instead. NOT!
When I purchased my RV one of the first things I did in the first RV park I stayed at was remove the flatscreen TV, mounting bracket, cables, remote and place them on the picnic table with a sign that said $100.... brand new never used. If I'm not here tape money to my door or if you're really hard up you can just have the thing....... then I went hiking & exploring.

A few hours later when I returned TV was gone and there were 2 50's taped to my door. To this day I don't know who 'bought' it......but they need it more than I.

My BIL's daughter works in television, and if it wasn't already apparent, pretty much all the "reality" shows are scripted/staged. Doesn't stop some of them from being interesting, but ya just have to take it all for entertainment purposes only.

I've seen this a few times and I like seeing the interiors of the RV's but take the premise and "reality" with a grain of salt.

There was also a show I saw a few times about people having RV's custom built, they built one for Simon Cowell and some other celebrities. I enjoyed seeing them as well. Can't remember the name of that one.

I've seen the show also. I'm waiting for the normal mans version. Where someone says their budget is $15,000.

This "reality show" always blows my mind. So I'm supposed to believe that I give a single sales person my requirements and then look at his offerings. After I look at 3, yep I'm limited to just 3 options, I give this guy my business because I can pick the LEAST OBJECTIONABLE unit? Wow, I can hardly wait to get on a show like that and give them my $$ for a unit that I like somewhat more than the other 2 offerings from a single dealer. Yep, why would we even "think" this was not reality?

The channel is Great American Country and the name of the show is Going RV.

Going RV | GAC

They also have a show called Flippin RVs which is kind of interesting. It's about a couple that buys old trailers and restores them to brand new condition.

As a family on one of those shows..... It was a blast for the kids and our friends. Scripted or not is up to the show but with 2 small kids nothing can be scripted.....
