Gentlemen, this is a Football!
When legendary football coach Vince Lombardi began his dynasty, he started with the basics. He told his team “Gentlemen, this is a Football!” Sounds silly, right? But Lombardi built a string of winning seasons and legendary players around the fundamentals of football.

Knowing the fundamentals and understanding the basics is what makes smart RVers. And as we’ve learned, smart RVers are happy Campers. Learn some of the fundamentals of RVing and let us know your thoughts below. Enjoy.
Another Camping World call from a Covid Nurse
The number of newbies to RVing is staggering and dealers have never been busier. This is good news for sales. But is it good news for buyers? According to the Wingman, it might be. But it can also prove to be a time when these newbies make some decisions that may turn into monumental financial issues in the future. In this opening segment, the Wingman tells of a recent conversation with a nurse who’s looking at full-time RV living and is considering a 240 month loan with no down payment. Good move? Or disaster? Take a listen and let us know your thoughts.
Teamwork and Time-on-the-line matters to this RV Manufacturer
Andre Fisher is the individual who helped the Wingman have a change of heart in how he viewed RV manufacturers and their commitment to quality. In this first-time appearance on The RV Show USA, Fisher shares some perspective as an industry insider “who’d been around the block” and talks specifically of how teamwork at the plant he words in; along with time-on-the line are huge reasons why the brands he represents are so well loved by their owners. Many things in this first in the series with Fisher are worthy of consideration by those who will be buying an RV.
The RV Wingman asks “What the hell”?
The emails pour into the RV Wingman’s inbox every week. Many of them are complaints from angry RVers and justifiably so. Others leave him scratching his head and wondering “what in the world”? That’s the situation he talks about in this opening Segment of The RV Show USA when a first-time buyer asks for advice in how “not to get taken”. You won’t believe what this buyer expects from his RV dealer. The problem is, the buyer has no idea that his expectations and requirements for purchase will likely NEVER be met by a single dealer in the country. Find out what this buyer expects and how the comments/advice the Wingman has for him.
Does anyone in the RV Industry really listen to RVers?
Kenny Miller, Lead design engineer for the Flagstaff/Rockwood division of Forest River discusses what happens “behind closed doors” at the plant as well as how they view comments, input and suggestions from RVers regarding future product changes. And Kenny shares one thing that; in the Wingman’s opinion helps separate Flagstaff/Rockwood from so many other manufacturers. This is episode #20-30 in our Ask the Manufacturer series.
The Wingman is worried about this Military Vet
The RV Wingman receives emails and voice messages on a regular basis and does his best to get back to everyone. So many people need some advice. So many people are concerned. What’s the right thing to do? In this short segment, the Wingman reads a recent email from a veteran suffering from PTSD and is on SSDI. With a very limited budget, this military hero purchased a 20 year old motorhome sight unseen. He’s going to take delivery of it and now he’s asking for some help and advice. Will the Wingman sugar-coat his response? Will the Wingman provide some helpful advice that you can learn from? Take a quick listen and decide for yourself.
So “THAT’s how they do it!”
The Wingman garnered some interview time with the Lead Design Engineer from the Rockwood/Flagstaff division of Forest River to discuss how they go about implementing new designs into their RVs. Kenny Miller shares the “how” changes in RVs take place as well as some of the things he looks at when he walks in an RV. You may be surprised at how he sees things as compared to how you may see things in this episode 20-29 in our Ask the Manufacturer series.
Addicted to bringing joy to others. Literally!
The Wingman finds a guest with a heart of gold in Las Vegas. She also has an addiction; a healthy addiction that brings joy to thousands of complete strangers with a very simple “act” of kindness. Evidently, it’s an act of kindness to strangers that has captured the imagination of tens of thousands of others (including many RVers) across the nation. In today’s challenging and divisive times, the Wingman thought a story about kindness and the people that bring kindness to others would be a welcome break from the non-stop negativity that surrounds us.
