Does anyone remember the old Food Network show featuring a guy in an RV? Jim O’Connor’s show, The Secret Life Of… always received mixed reviews. Most loved his almost manic but amicable personality. Others just marveled that a guy living in an RV who was better at “eating” than “cooking” could have his own cooking show.
Fast forward to 2018 and RVing is again being featured on the Food Channel. In the opening show, the hosts demonstrated to viewers how to “elevate their camping experience” with two fun recipes made in the kitchen of a 5th wheel.
In Episode 2, a young couple looks for the perfect RV to take out on the open road on a limited budget in order to start a new chapter in their lives. Watch this episode and others online »
The Go RVing PR team is also preparing for upcoming national television spots that will showcase RVing including four features on the business network CNBC this summer. Go RVing will take over the plaza outside the New York Stock Exchange to set up an RV, which will be the setting for “Closing Bell” anchors to come outside and interview an RV industry executive. The live segments are scheduled May to August.
In addition, RVs will be featured on the highly-watched “FOX & Friends” morning show on June 2. Go RVing spokespersons representing key RVer demographics will appear throughout the morning against the backdrop of an urban campground the PR team will construct outside the FOX studio. The morning will include three RVs—two trailers and a motorhome.
“These are exciting opportunities to let viewers see how versatile RVs can be, and to imagine how they might use one themselves,” said director of media relations Kevin Broom. “Whether it’s a family traveler, an outdoor adventurer, or a grandparent interested in multigenerational travel, we’re going to make sure viewers understand there’s an RV that’s right for them.
