”RV Buddies” (www.rvbuddiesonline.com) plans to telecast 16 segments from the Pennsylvania RV and Campground Show that ended Sunday (Sept. 26) in Hershey, Pa., that featured RVs from over 55 manufacturers, many showing their 2010 lineup, along with a host of aftermarket products and accessories.
”RV Buddies” will feature Open Range Residential, Born Free 22 Rear Kitchen, Carriage Cameo, Winnebago Via, Winnebago Tour, Four Winds Serrano, Tiffin RED, Keystone Fuzion, Forest River XLR, Newmar Canyon Star toy hauler and the Galileo travel trailer.
Besides coach reviews, aftermarket products and accessories, a number of industry veterans will be featured, including “The RV Doctor,” Gary Bunzer, and RV Adventures’ John Holod.
Additionally ”RV Buddies” shot several spots featuring the local flavor of the community – that flavor being chocolate. “Robert and Elise had a lot of fun with those and may have gained a few pounds while filming them,” said Producer Mark Summers, referring to show co-hosts Robert Wittenberg and Elise Baughman’s tours of various local chocolate-themed attractions.
The sponsoring Pennsylvania RV and Camping Association (PRVCA) (www.prvca.com) reported that over 31,000 attended what was billed as “Americas Largest RV Show.” Local network news covering the show reported: “If the RV Industry is any indicator of the economy, the recession is over.”
“I can believe it.” said Summers. “There were times when it was very crowded and it was hard for us to film a review due to the amount of people that were exploring the coaches. In fact, one time we had to come back and finish a review later because a dealer was busy closing a deal with a happy customer.”
Summers termed the visit to the show as a ‘’great success.’’ ”As this was our first live blogcast, we’ve received a lot of comments about how much people really enjoyed getting a live look at what was going on around the show,’’ Summers said.
For those who missed it live, the blogcast can currently be found in the “News Bytes” section at the ”RV Buddies” website. Photos, reviews and other coverage of the Hershey will begin appearing later this week and roll out over the next few months.
”RV Buddies” is currently in the planning stage for their trip to the California RV Show, which will be in Pomona next month.
”RV Buddies” is an RV adventure-lifestyle show featuring reviews of RVs, accessories and gear. The program is distributed as an Internet Television production on its own website, on Apple iTunes, and through other distribution channels.
