“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow- mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.” Mark Twain may have said this, but Traveling Robert lives it . . . To the fullest. Join us tonight as this videographer, song writer, content creator and all-around nice guy tells us about his journey to stardom on the Internet. He has over 180

We don’t have to tell experienced RVers how challenging it can be to get reservations at their favorite campground. The incredible increase of first-time buyers is an entirely different story - their experience in learning about RVs and the campground industry is the proverbial equivalent to drinking from a fire hose. Mia Caetano Johnson is a well-respected broker who only deals with campground owners that want to sell and consumers or business entities wanting to buy or build a campground or RV resort. W

Tonight it’s all about our fans as we have one of our Open Discussions on any topics you want to bring up or we will choose from a list that John and Bob have prepared.

We thought it was time for another night with John and Bob to talk about things important to you, things that drove our RV and camping experience the first six months of the year, and gaze into the crystal ball and see what we think the last six months of the year will look like.

This has been a year like no other for most of us. As the ball dropped on New Year’s Eve the air was filled with optimism about the great year ahead. The economy was strong, the RV industry was opening up consumer shows with record attendance and RVers were already getting excited about the camping season. And then on March 13 the world was turned upside down.

Fast forward to May and RV sales go through the roof and half the new sales are being made to people who have never owned and RV and have never been in a campground. So what does this mean for our industry, our campgrounds and RV enthusiasts for the rest of the year?

No idea where the discussion will go because our viewers will be driving the conversation. Join us, join in . . . What do you think will happen?
