long long honeymoon

Not quite a TV show, but you may want to check out longlonghoneymoon dot com
I believe it is about a couple that bought an Airstream and went on a cross country honeymoon. They may even still be out there somewhere. I think they created many many video's. Kinda fun to watch.

Heck, be creative..... make your own series about your adventures and put it out there on you tube.

They televise hours and hours of grown men in tight spandex running around, calling themselves tight ends and half backs and other men smacking a little ball all over the country side trying to get that little white ball in a small hole. If they made the holes bigger, I'm sure they can save time and then have enough time for an RV show. Real men, drinking beer and tring to start a fire. Just saying.

I would if I was on the other side of the fire with my beer.

With all the baby boomers coming into retirement age, if I were the RVIA I would be producing TV shows promoting the RV lifestyle. A heck of a lot of people will be retiring over the next 15 years.

Hi All,
We have a lot of camping / travel shows on free to air TV, but not specifically for large RVs. Pat Callinan's4X4 Adventures is one of the most popular. If you want to see how we camp in Australia this link has a lot of video clips about our country and what we camp in. Hope it works ok.

Pat Callinan's 4x4 Adventures - WATCH VIDEOS

Cheers, Robyn.

Google RVTV and you will see the format of the old rv show that was on tv. They covered many topic from cooking to rv maintenance. It was a great show.

Hey now, let's not start knocking the NFL, it's one of the best TV products out there. It's practically a made for TV event.

That said, I do think there's PLENTY of room on cable for a weekly, "down to earth" style show about RVs and the RV lifestyle. "Extreme RV" is OK to watch, but it doesn't translate much to the 99% of us who can't afford those units (ever notice they NEVER mention the price of any of the RVs they cover?) I'd watch a show about normal, dealer-available units that the regular guy can go out and purchase, floor plans, features, etc, and then have a segment on road trips--RV parks, attractions, good road stories, etc. Someone get the cable execs on the phone!

My local public television station has a weekly "Texas Parks and Wildlife" show that highlights a state park. Kinda interesting to see and pick which ones we might like to visit. I would most definetly watch a daily,weekly or even monthly rv show.

I like the one on HGTV that is like House Hunters, but it is people looking for an RV! Wish I had the resourses that some of them have!
