If you’re an RVer (or RVing hopeful) who spends cold winter days dreaming about those warm summer months when you can hit the open road again, we have just the thing for you. While you wait, why not binge on this list of RV TV Shows?
7 RV TV Shows to Watch
With the rise in popularity of RVing, the number of RV television shows to watch has increased. And we’re totally ok with that.
When we were in the research and prepping stage of hitting the road to full-time RV, Todd read everything he could get his hands on and I watched everything I could get my eyes on. I scoured cable networks, Netflix, Amazon, and YouTube looking for shows that gave me a taste of the RV lifestyle.
I didn’t care if it was about full-time RV living or a glimpse into extreme RVs that cost a pretty penny (or millions of pretty pennies), I wanted to watch it.
So whether you’re researching everything you can about RVing or you just love RVs as much as we do, we think you’ll find a show or three below to watch. Enjoy!
Great American Country
This network has quite a few RV shows, from stories of full-time RVers to flipping RVs to sell. (Some of these shows also air on The Travel Channel.)
Whether they’re buying their very first RV or upgrading to a new one, this show follows couples and families who’ve decided to ditch the ordinary for an adventure on the open road. They’re…Going RV.
You can also purchase episodes on YouTube for $1.99.
2. Beachin’ RVs
Husband and wife team Justin and Anna Scribner tour the country looking for vintage RVs to transform into beach bungalows on wheels. They search through RV graveyards looking for just the right one and take it back to their home in Bend, Oregon to give it a complete makeover. The buyers pick up their new RVs and bring them to the beach to stake their claim on an affordable piece of waterfront paradise.
3. Big Time RV
This is one of my favorites because it’s filmed at Lazy Days in Tampa, Florida. We stayed at this RV park and also toured their RV lot. Not only is the RV park incredibly nice and fun to stay at, but if you like to tour RVs as we do just for fun, this place is for you.
The team tests every make and model of RV there is, finding just the right one for their customer base of RV lovers who are looking to either rent or buy.
4. Extreme RVs
If you’re into rolling million-dollar mega-mansions, this is the show for you. From brand-new on the market RVs with cutting edge designs to multi-million dollar restorations of vintage and classic RVs viewers get to see it all.
Their goals? To stay on budget, finish on time and please their high-end customers.
5. Flippin’ RVs
Justin and Anna Scribner, the same husband and wife team from Beachin’ RVs, host Flippin’ RVs. They search through RV graveyards for just the right RV to bring home to Bend, OR and transform into a beautiful home on wheels.
This show highlights the most outrageous, tricked-out and retrofitted RV’s in the world. You’ll see extravagant coaches of A-list celebrities, some of the world’s greatest RVs as well as meet their owners who conceptualized these unbelievable designs.
