One of the most successful TV programs about RVing will return to the Destination America cable channel this Sunday, November 19, at 8:30 AM.
Now in its fifth season, The RVers features a variety of topics based on viewer feedback. “Viewers reach out to us to hear what we have in store for them down the road,” said show creator/producer Anthony Nalli, who encourages dialogue primarily through the show’s Facebook page. “They are telling us they want to see more destination segments and travel to exotic places. And so, we will share more of this in Season 5 rather than just providing information.”
The Destination America network is the perfect audience for his award-winning show, Nalli pointed out, as the overall theme of the network is very much aligned with the sentiment of most RVers. Destination America, a unit of the Warner Brothers Discovery Network, carries programming focused on the culture of the United States, including food, lifestyle, and travel.
While Destination America is critical to the show’s continued success, Nalli and his team cover all the bases. The RVers first runs on the Discovery Channel in late spring and on the broadcast channel Funroads TV throughout the year. Nalli stated that Funroads TV significantly boosted the show’s viewership when that outlet first came on board several seasons ago. The program is then re-released on Destination America and PBS channels in the fall. The show can also be streamed on Apple iTunes, Amazon Video, Google Play, and YouTube.
In addition, on-the-road guests feature Brian and Melissa Purcel (RV with Tito), Mark and Julie Bennett (RVLove), Adam and Celine McLaughlin (The RVers Family), Heath and Alyssa Padgett (RV Entrepreneur), and Chris Dunphy and Cherie Ve Ard (Techomadia).
Examples of this season’s six-episode content include:
- Episode 1—Caravanning in Europe; how to avoid disaster during a tire blowout
- Episode 2—Careful planning for four-season camping; the trials and tribulations of two decades on the road
- Episode 3—A look at the best of best luxury RVs; new high-tech finding its way into RVs
- Episode 4—Extreme RVing with an offroad adventure; the Ultimate Fifth Wheel

Major sponsors of The RVers (referred to on the program as friends) include Dometic, Battle Born Batteries, RvnGo, Black Series, Fantasy RV Tours, National Indoor RV Centers, RV2Tee Golf, RV Water Filter Store, and more than 15 other companies. You can find them all listed here.
With Season 6 in production, Nalli says viewers can expect more travel to destinations near and far, plus a new addition to the cast.
