Paul and Lorena Charron began their adventure in a motorhome. Not knowing where the adventure would lead them or how long they would travel, they called this chapter in their life “The Motorhome Experiment”. Over the past 2 years, Paul and Lorena have visited hundreds of breathtaking destinations and experienced all kinds of activities and “dishes” while they are conducting “The Motorhome Experiment”. From the looks of this YouTube couple’s video, the “experiment” is a great excuse for having fun and squeezing the most out of life.
Segment One: Alan Warren dishes on three components of the RV Industry (Manufacturers, Dealers and Consumers) and gives his take on WHO is responsible for WHAT. According to the Wingman, if you find yourself in a financial grave or you have purchased an RV with inherent problems (when there are resources available to steer you AWAY from them and avoid making mistakes), the responsibility is that on the Consumer; not on the manufacturer. He also has some advice on what manufacturers may need to do to build a better relationship with consumers.
Segments Two & Three: David Crossett is the creator of a one-of-a-kind series of online classes that are designed to help RVers “get to the fun faster” with RV Masters.

(Hint: he made an impulsive decision to buy an RV without any knowledge of how an RV even works)! Determined to educate others, Crossett’s courses will make you a smarter RVer and a happy camper.

Listen to Ron’s interview with The RV Wingman and decide for yourself. Knowledge is power!
