The Recreational Vehicle, or RV has been a staple of the American road trip since before the US ever had highways. From the humble origins in covered wagons to the present day high tech behemoths that can cost up to six-figures, join Nolan as we explore America's obsession with glamping.

  • Correction: During economic downturn, the RV industry does not thrive. As someone who lives within the US RV capital (Elkhart County Indiana), most people who work within that industry are laid off (post housing crisis, Elkhart County had the highest unemployment). With that said, when times are good (such as now), you will make stupid money. For people working the assembly line and are on rate, you can make between $40-$65 an hour.

  • 9:38 "Washer and dryer in your place" As a bachelor that does laundry in my place with no dryer ... Nolan hangs his shirts folded in 1/2 on an line with clothes pins that cause those puckers in his shirt. Nolan! Hang your shits on the line by the shoulders or from the bottom seam. People notice the puckers.

  • The built in ad is full of BS, who feeds you guys this shit? SurfShark is a VPN it is a secure tunnel end to end. Anyone that wants to hack you by gaining access to your WiFi can still hack you. SurfShark does nothing if there is a hacker in your apartment building or in a hotel you visit. So many times I have been in a hotel and see other devices on the network that are open doors. I don't use Windows, I use Linux and that opens doors.

  • As somebody who drives a tractor trailer for a living, (going on 31 years) I can honestly say it's a bad idea for any Joe schmo to be able to drive a 60 ft RV. They can weigh up to 80,000 lb fully loaded which is what your average tractor trailer weighs, we have to have a special license CDL class A, bus drivers and straight truck which don't wait as much have to have a class B and training, yet any dickwad with cash and good credit can buy one. You're talking about a 8 and 1/2 ft wide 60 ft long 80,000 lb vehicle that you don't need a specialized license in order to drive, how dangerous is that? To me that ranks right up there with Penske and Ryder trucks that anybody can rent as long as it's not rated for more than 26,000 lb.

While pelosi's fridge is filled with $25G of ice cream and worried about the usps not being able to help the democrats steal an election, she has not lifted ONE FINGER to help the American people in this so called pandemic, thusly those people are LOSING their homes and having to LIVE in their rv's...rv: its no longer a way of life, its now a way to sustain life

  • Me and my girlfriend bought and moved into a used 80's 30' RV this spring. We're situated at a RV park in the country just outside of town. My view out the front door is a massive soybean/cornfield. Oh, and we have electricity, water, and sewage hookups. Honestly I love it. It's so much better than the two bedroom apartment I was renting. We now have the freedom to travel anywhere and take our home with us. There are no bills (besides the measly $400 rent for the RV park, which includes utilities).
