I miss the show to. There were 2 that I watched. Stews and another one that was mentioned. Outdoor channel, DIY network and Travel channel should be all over these shows in my opinion. Especially the Travel Channel!!!! Thats a no brainer. But the viewers dont matter I guess. Good luck Stew.

There hasn't been a whole lot of "travel" on the Travel channel for a long time. Most time slots are taken up with feeding someone's face or freeloading with a camera crew. Several are trying to see what kind of truly gross foods someone can stuff down their throats.

Thanks Stew. What is certain to me from your years doing the show, and from all your years in TV, there is a HUGE audience for quality RVing programming on TV. Why it isn't serviced in any regular way is perplexing. Also, the RVing community spends $$$$$ on their passion. It's the perfect combination for a TV demo ... a large and loyal audience, and folks who have $$$$. It also happens to be a crowd that spends wisely! Thank you again for the comments above.

Hi stew! I happened to see this thread and thought I'd check in and to get an update. Thanks for your kind words above ... yes, I had a great time watching RVtoday. You and Boze covered a lot of territory in those years, and you had a great audience ! I understand that you are now "Professor Stew", teaching broadcast journalism in LA at Biola University. And it just so happens that understand that you uploaded another YouTube RV video today ... RVing in Nashville. I can hear Boze sing at the Ryman Auditorium in this one. So, Stew, If you would just lose the infomercial atmosphere, then you might have a chance to put your pot of gold back on the air.

Thanks for the comments above! We had such a wonderful audience during the run of the show. I just uploaded another one ... RVing in Vegas.

Thanks again ... Stew.

There's another show (not as good as Stews) that is on from RVNN.TV . It has some neat features and there are some other spinoff shows rom it. It looks like it gets a new show 2 or 3 times a week. If they could work on their technical skills and editing, then it would make for a better show. WE watch it on Roku, but believe you an access it from their website.

My favorite RV show was called"Wish You Were Here" which was on the Nashville Network back in the 80's. Great show. There have to be millions of RVers that would watch a show like that,especially since there is so much other junk on TV.


I still miss the Nashville Network. Loved the variety show I think was called Nashville Now with Ralph Emery as host. He had some really good entertainers stopping by.

I have pretty much given up on them. They seem to only show the most expensive they can find because that's what the young reporters are most fascinated by. Rigs that many of us can afford never see the light of day on these programs. I'm tired of looking at multimillion dollar units.


Unless tomorrow has been promised to you, you better get busy today.

That seems to be the norm for a lot of the yrly rv shows so we've pretty much stopped going to them.
