Is Anybody Else Watching...

The RVers on the Discovery Channel?
What do you think of it so far?

I just added to my library; so maybe I can watch some of it next week.

I had previously never heard of it and know nothing about the show. We took our RV back to Dealer Thursday for some warranty repairs; so we figure to be all alone and with free time for a while

I hope that they get your rig back to you quickly, and completely fixed!

I watched about 3 of them. I thought they only had 3 or 4 then disovered that my provider dropped the discovery channel so they stopped DVR'ing LOL.

Not much of a loss honestly; I found them about 20 minutes of advertising for 10 minutes of show...

I like that they take a couple of topics, and give the viewer a decent presentation about them.
It might not be a "deep dive" into the specifics: but it will at least give you a working knowledge about it.

I've watched them all so far, more commercials than actual content. Rvgeeks YouTube videos are better.

Where do you think they get their content providers? In fact, RVGeeks were on a segment today that aired.

RVers TV show

Basically one big commercial for various vendors. Actual content was not well produced and relatively boring. It's a shame because it could be so much better.

But it still easily beats the other shows.
The ones where a couple gets to look at three or four different RVS, and ends up buying one...
There's absolutely no depth to those shows at all!

I watched my 1st show. Wow it is huge commercial show. I had trouble telling what was the actual content. Maybe I had bad episode, but the commercials were killing so much that it was almost funny to see how many more would they dare show. With such low level content and the volume of commercials the must be making a lot of money though. I would invest in RVers stock, but not watch the show.

you know those shows area about as 'real' as pro wrestling, right? In fact, they already OWN the RV they 'picked'. and the dealer "got us totally different colors and layout and model years and".... I mean ever see someone with a BRAND NEW RV have pictures on the walls and pillows all over the place?

AHHHHHH!

But if you believe they buy the one they 'picked'...I have a house in Alabama for ya.


no, seriously. I have an Alabama house I wanna sell!

First...yes it's alot of commercials. I mean A LOT! wow.. it should be on QVC!

Second, the music? they must have gotten it wholesale, because you can't hear the people talking. choose one or the other, people. If I want that much blasting music that I can't hear, I'll go down to the local bar.

Finally, Yes, I'll watch it, hoping I might learn that one nugget of knowledge that I didn't have. but then I also play Lotto for the same reason. often with similar results.

I like them. And I also like that that most of the commercials are for RV stuff.

My wife and I watch it every week. Like others we both feel it is short on actual content and heavy on commercials. But, as far as we know, it is the only RV show on TV that even offers a smidgen of RV information.

In some respects, it's a long advertising platform for RV vendors. On the other hand, it provides some information, problem mostly for 'new' to the RVing world, as most of us already know most of it ourselves.

I think it would appeal less to those who haven't thought of RVing, since it's not really showing anyone 'buying' or 'shopping' for an RV, like the other shows do, and it's heavy of the 'technical' aspects of RVing, rather than the 'glamour'...
I also think that most of us who have be 'RVing' for a time are already familiar with most all of what the content is - other than seeing some of the vendors themselves, who advertise products that we don't normally see on other channels.

It's o.k., for a Saturday morning show, but I found myself already turning the channel less than 5 minutes in... : / I watch the 'shopping for an RV' shows much more readily.

And now it's gone!
I wonder if it was pulled for low viewership...
Or if it had completed it's run for 2020?

I don't know...? My complaint was that they they cut the commercials, or they cut the show You don't think they actually listened or read this site ...

It is certainly a show needed, but they may need a new format and producer to make it more entertaining.
