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.

Thanx..........INTJohn
Well OK then.

Reality shows are a prefabbed joke. We have a pawn store in Detroit that has a really show called Hardcore Pawn. It showcases people bringing in odd things and folks fighting and being generally aggressive and trashy.

Well one day the producers called my brother about his ad on Craigslist. They asked him to bring the item in to sell it. We brought it in, they told us to act like we just decided to bring it in. They appraised our item, decided they can't sell it and we left. It was a circus. They even had folks that were there to "cause a scene". Sadly it never even aired

All in all there is ZERO reality in those shows.....

It's on GAC (Directv 326) on Wednesdays. "Going RV" is the name of the program. We love when the people tell the salesman their budget of $55,000 and the first one he shows them is $95,000. Now after seeing all those bells & whistles, do you think they are going to like $55,000!

Haven't watched it, but I imagine it's similar to the House Hunters International type show we peek at every now and then.
They usually show some couple three of the most fantastic, awe inspiring 1000 year old completely remodeled Tuscan village homes...to which the wife or husband always remarks something like "but the bathroom is quite small", or "it doesn't have room for a king size bed".....all the while they are looking at homes in freaking Tuscany.
Yes, reality tv...gotta love it.

PS. My Wife's response to the people who bring up silly concerns on those shows is always the same: "but you mean it doesn't have a rocket launcher?...that is unacceptable"

I watched one of these reality RV shows a couple days ago. The motorhome salesman was one of the sleaziest looking salesmen I've ever seen. There's NO WAY I'd ever buy a MH/TT from him.

Another couple was shown a Livin' Lite popup. The salesman dropped the dinette table down to make the bunk, the girl layed down on it, and it promptly collapsed under her. They all back up from the dinette and the whole trailer tilted up and they fell into the rear bunk. Pretty funny. They ended up with a A-frame.

There was a couple with a 10-12k they supposedly bought a used FR a-frame for 10k. They were tent campers

Are we referring to Big Time RV? We actually really enjoy the show. New season just started a couple weeks ago. Sure it's scripted and there is a TON that isn't shown but it still gives a great insight as to what people like, where they splurge, etc. Forest River is shown quite a bit on the show as well.
