The Charlie and his brother video was funny when they were little. The reenactment when older is not funny, not entertaining and kinda lame. What was that family thinking in doing another video?

I enjoy many articles of your online magazine, but the constant banter of poorly built RV’s is no fun, and surely you must realize you’re “singing to the choir “. My father was an RV dealer from around 1965 until 2002, so I got to tour many factories where they built wooden walls on cut away van chassis, covering them in corrugated tin. Now that was a piece of work! We loved them though, and a new Class C would set you back $15995.00. There were no Class A units yet, just buses. My fathers crew had to completely go over each unit as it arrived, as they came from the factory half built. There are NONE of those RVs left, they fell apart long before they had time to rot.
These units today are far superior and of course more expensive, but I think the real problem is with the lack of dealer service. Today we visit $50 million buildings, with hundreds of thousands in payroll per month, tens of thousands to light the place each month. So, if you miss the great service of yesterday, look around at what you are really buying.

Entertainment, maybe? Sheesh, Charlie. Are you offended because your name is in the title, or what? 😉 —Diane at
