Our Rerun January 12th Program - our New Series Begins the week of April 9th (view the past shows here)
Austin, Texas is covered in this January 12th Rollin On TV program. Jeff Johnston visits one of our many upcoming RV Destination features. This week, Jeff visits Austin, Texas and particularly the hill country around Austin.
As with any RV adventure, you need to find a place to park that RV once you’re there and Jeff shows us a couple of local RV parks including the La Hacienda RV Resort and Cottages, part of the Sun Communities Resorts Group. Located about 26 miles from Austin, the resort has 243 full hook-up sites and 53 cottages. There’s a modern laundry facility, store, family pool, adult pool with hot tub and there’s even a special pet area. If you have children, there’s a great playground and even a putting green area.
If you’re into water sports, there’s swimming, fishing and boating. If you don’t have your own boat, you can rent a boat, or even Jet Skis. There’s plenty more La Hacienda has to offer and you can see it all in the show.
When it comes to good ole' Texas entertainment, Jeff found it at Poodie’s Hilltop Roadhouse . The place is named after Poodie, who was Willie Nelson’s stage manager for around 35-years. He was always bringing in very well-known acts to this authentic old roadhouse.
Next, Jeff winds down a bit in the town of Bastrop where, after a night at Poodies, is a relaxing change. This historic town has plenty to see and do, and if you’re into Texas history, Bastrop has its share of interesting, historic places to visit.
How can you visit the Austin area and not have a nice steak dinner… Jeff discovered Murphy’s Steak House where he enjoyed a great Texas steak and of course some good ole Texas brew.
Also on this week’s show, we revisit our friends at the Rollin’ Oldies Vintage Trailer group at one of their rallies in Fort Stevens State Park in Northwest Oregon. I don’t know about you, but I enjoy stepping back in time and looking at these classic, vintage trailers. Jeff checks out the a few of these beauties that were on hand at this event.
P.S. Be sure to watch for our new Rollin On TV programs beginning the first week in April!
On this show we find ourselves in Tucson, Arizona where the Rollin’ On TV Crew and Truma team meet up with Bruce Smith, the winner of our AquaGo contest.
Jeff Johnston caught up with Bruce and Billy DiDonato from Truma at the La Mesa RV Center where the AquaGo installation is being done. When everyone arrived, Bruce’s Grand Design Reflection 5 th wheel was already in the service bay and ready for the work to begin.
Bruce said he has been RVing for about 2-½ years now and has owned the Reflection for just about a year. Needless to say, he is familiar with how regular RV hot water systems work and can’t wait to use the AquaGo with its Instant, Continuous and Endless hot water.
Scott Thwaits, La Mesa Service Technician and Billy DiDonato from Truma performed the installation in no time at all. Now, Bruce can’t wait to get out on his next RV trip in a couple of days and, try out the AquaGo… We’re sure he will be delighted.
Also on this week’s show, we revisit the Jayco factory and tour the assembly line to see what goes into building their popular Alante’ class A motorhome.
Then we join Jeff Johnston as he takes out the Alante’ for a few days and does one of his ‘real life’ reviews.
Later, we find out that the old saying, ‘you can’t have your salad and desert together’, or something like that, isn’t true any more. Evanne Schmarder proves that saying wrong, with her delicious Apple Pie Salad. Watch the show and check it out for yourself… this is one crazy but delicious dessert.
