PPL Motorhomes needs your RV!
With so many people changing their travel and vacation plans and deciding to purchase an RV, Diana LeBlanc-Link tells the Wingman that PPL Motorhomes that she is needing inventory in a bad way and why now may be the best time ever for RV owners (who don’t use their RV much) can get top dollar for it when consigning through PPL. Diana says she’s never seen a better time for sellers to get their money “quickly” in this market and PPL has the buyers.
They Call ‘em the Wanderers!
Juggling a growing family, moving into a new home, temporarily “living out of boxes” and 2 careers can be stressful. But for Cory and Brooke Blackmon, they find “balance” with their frequent Camping trips in their home state of Georgia. These down-to-earth, enthusiastic Campers began capturing their growing family’s weekend camping trips on video and sharing them online. But their videos seemed to really connect with viewers. While producing these videos is still nothing more than a hobby according to Cory and Brooke, it’s a labor of love. For the Blackmon’s it’s all about “family time together”. And for thousands of RVers and Campers nationwide, this part-time RVing family has become a YouTube favorite.

Forest River makes big strides with Owner’s Manuals
Flagstaff/Rockwood Territory Manager Anthony Yoder shares how Forest River has made huge strides for its owners in the way of Owner’s Manuals and getting information to their Owners that is specific to the make and model of each RV they manufacture. Anthony explains why it’s important for consumers to take the time to ask the proper questions BEFORE making a purchase of any RV. Specifically, he says that many of the quality components and construction techniques that his plant utilizes on every RV manufactured are not apparent to the naked eye. Yet these quality materials and techniques can add many years of solid use from its owners in this Ask the Manufacturer #2018. If you a question you’d like to ask the Manufacturer or a topic you’d like to hear discussed, leave a message on our 24 hour voicemail. You could hear yourself on an upcoming show and we may even send you a prize. Our 24 hour voicemail is 1-330-Wingman (1-330-946-4626).
