Harry & Meghan, a Wife Beating RV Dealer, Poop and more!
Did you see the fake news about Harry and Meghan becoming RVers? Think you’re pretty good at spotting fake news? I’m not so sure any of us are. One of the country’s largest RV Dealers has pleaded guilty to aggravated assault of his wife (by smashing her head into the asphalt). This is not only a story about a bad man but it stinks to high heaven (as 4 judges have recused themselves from the case). I told you it stinks! And wiping your hiney never felt so good as it does with a substitute for toilet paper you may want to consider. Disgusting!

Fighting Ignorance with RV Classes
Most first-time RVers make mistakes when they purchase their first RV because they don’t know what to ask. They don’t know what to look for.

RV Station’s Cannon Combs shares his plans for their upcoming RV Ed classes at 2020 and why every newbie and soon-to-be RV owner should attend BEFORE buying an RV from anyone at any price. RV Station is Texas’ premier RV Dealer that holds free monthly Classes for RVers no matter where they bought their RV (or if they don’t even have an RV). The classes are for educational purposes only. There is no selling of any kind in the classes. In fact, you can’t even buy an RV at an RV class. But you will leave a smarter and better informed RV buyer. Let us know what you think of these RV Classes by posting your comments or call and leave a voicemail 24/7 at 1-330-Wingman.

Segment 1: Crazy Camper or a Sexist Wingman?

Wintering in South Texas- Is it safe?
If one only listens and watches the news, stories abound about tragedy along border states. But the reality is far from that. The reality according to Kristi Collier is that the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas is among the safest communities in the country. It’s also a mecca for those seeking warmer climate when the snow begins falling up north. Low cost of living, warm and sunny weather, friendly people, excellent health care and an abundance of activities makes South Texas a growing favorite for Winter Texans and “Converted Texans” as well. #wintertexans
