Family’s RV woes inspire hilarious music video


What happens if you buy a fifth wheel trailer and it turns out to be riddled with defects? Well, if you’re a member of this family you make a highly entertaining music video about your experience, asking in it for your spouse to forgive you for buying it. “The Best Darn Camper Song” was posted to our RV Horror Stories Facebook group: We simply cannot resist showing it to you here. This is going viral. We don’t think the place where they bought the RV will be too happy about that.


  1. So Funny! Especially since we too are owners of a 5th Wheel (Bighorn by Heartland) with innumerable problems. My wife and I laughed all the way through your clever & entertaining video. Thanks for sharing your Creativity & Terrific attitude in the face of such frustrating problems.
    You brightened our morning. : > 》

    • Hey Sheridan and Kathy! You also brightened our day, letting us know you had such a good laugh. Thank you very much. We also hope you get some resolution to the problems with your Heartland Bighorn. Best of luck!

  2. Love the production, music and singing. Maybe you should become a producer. Hope the shaming does some good. I’m sure if enough people see this RV Factory may be out of business. Would serve them right.

    • Thanks, Tommy. We really appreciate your compliments! We truly hope The RV Factory can have great successful long term business. But we also feel that part of that requires them to own up where they fell short, and making things right.

  3. Thank you, Chuck, for sharing our story! This was after a year of trying to get the manufacturer to address our issues, and then just finally having enough. As Kevin mentioned above, more detail is at the website, including our first video from December which better outlines the situation from beginning to end. Again, thank you for sharing!

  4. Adorable family and the video is probably the most fun they will ever have with their fifth wheel, sad!

    • Hi Patricia, so true. Though the camper and experience with The RV Factory itself has been a big disappointment, it certainly presented us with an opportunity to collaborate together as a family and have some amazing fun. We believe it’s also helped show the kids that you can deal with difficult situations in creative and positive ways. While we aren’t making memories from travel, we are still making some great ones in our own back yard. We plan to have some pictures made from the various scenes and hang them on a wall in our house. Thanks for your support!

  5. Ouch! I’m assuming this came after trying to work with dealer, but well done public shaming.

    Would have been even stronger if elucidating each problem more… Hot/cold shower is less dramatic than gas leaks…
