My wife decided we needed to buy it at Best Buy last week even though we have yet to see it. Did she throw my money away? We will watch it when we get a chance.

Got a real good lesson on the black water tank from it. NEVER USE A Y CONNECTOR!!!

Haven't seen it yet. I heard it was hilarious.

Mike, is it true the movie depicts some of the things new RVers do?

It is funny but since I was raised camping not sure on the new rver thing.

I can say I to date have not made the mistakes that are in the movie.

I laughed hard at the black tank cleaning and the slide when it tore the cabinet door off (watch closely for this). Glad I dont have a door on the slide side as my wife loves that button as her first move when I get the trailer level.

Not gonna tell all the funny stuff but watch that awning also!

We're going to pick up a copy. We rented it first. I loved it. (We bought "Flight of the Phoenix" without seeing it first. Big mistake. Bear hated it, so we rented first.) I usually don't really like Robin Williams, but he was hilarious. That black water scene had us both cringing and laughing. We've seen many stupid things but that takes the cake.

How many times have you met a family like the Gornickes at a campground? I have seen "RV Parks" like the one in the desert from this movie. All the RVs lined up side-by-side, no trees. All the stupid mistakes that I have made don't even compare to that black water tank sceen! "Just hold it high, like that." Ha Ha Ha!

Boy, I'd like to know what model RV that was. It took one heck of a beating and still kept going!

Good movie. My inlaws borrowed it already. They RV also. Next it goes to my parents. They just got into a used TT this year and love it.

Thumbs up You asked

My husband and I loved the Movie. I think you have to be an RV'r to really appreciate the humor. So many of the situations are our worst nightmares.
As for the type of RV used in the movie ... are you ready?
and I quote...The Munro RV is a Forest River, Georgetown 359 TS. The production actually purchased five of them for the film, two of which were the RVs we see the Munros driving and living in throughout the film. Two others were fitted with special suspension hydraulics to tackle some of the extreme driving moments.

See the entire article(interesting)

I saw the movie and thought it was hilarious. Corny and far fetched at times, but plenty of stuff that is close enough to what we have seen or done ourselves that as an RVer I could relate. Plus I wouldn't be embarassed to take my grandmother or my kids to see it and I can't say that for a significant of the movies these days. I would see the movie again. In fact I plan to buy the DVD. Haven't personally used a Y for a black tank connection but have had a mishap. Didn't think it was the least bit funny but if someone else had been watching, they might have thought otherwise. Also who among us has not sat in the campground watching someone else backing into a spot, hooking up or whatever. We all were there once upon a time.
