Episode 122 | Instagram Shaming and RV Sales Trends

This week, it’s said that some people will do anything for the ‘gram. Is a blacklist of influencers who act up on public lands in order? What does next year’s RV sales landscape look like? We take a look at a new report and how the RV industry is spinning it. And airstream looks to the future to make those scary Millenials happy. Will they change the classic silver bullet look?

Listen below, or in any podcast app:

After a food-filled Thanksgiving holiday, we packed up the ol’ four-wheel drive sleigh and headed to Kansas City to spend the month of December with Abby’s family.

This week in the news, Airstream fires up the online discussion with an announcement that they are looking to shake up future designs in order to attract a new kind of buyer. Forbes has all the details:

After the break, Jason and Abby discuss a recent Outside Magazine article focused on an Instagram account titled “PublicLandsHateYou.” What do you think? Leave a comment and let us know how you feel about their form of public shaming.


We finish off the show with a look at the projected RV sales for 2020, and the spin the RVIA tried to put on the less than stellar numbers.

Abby’s fresh tank this week is her latest obsession video all about her favorite little character ever – “The Child” aka Baby Yoga.

Jason’s fresh tank celebrates a new transit initiative in Kansas City – they’ve made all their public transit free!

Jason’s black tank this week involves an RV and a Taco Bell drive-thru:

    Enjoyed the podcast! I think I’ll check out some more. I was looking for something to listen to while I crocheted a baby Yoda. How fitting that I found this exact one. 🙂
