Topsy Turvy RV

Adventurous newlyweds Kyle and Kaley Smith, fresh off their honeymoon in Mexico, have come to Tampa to shop for a pop-up camper. Avid nature lovers, the two want a camping option rugged enough to handle being out in the woods with the convenience of a small kitchen and bathroom. RV expert Chris Mullis shows the couple the $9,500 Livin Lite Quicksilver, well under their $12,000 budget. Kyle likes the headspace but Kaley thinks the living area is too small and really wants a camper with a bathroom. Robert and Judy Lawrence, former executives from southern California, have traveled to Quartzsite, Arizona for the world's biggest RV gathering. The retirees meet up with RV expert Mike Armenta to find out if their $500,000 budget will allow them to buy the perfect home away from home. First, Mike takes the Lawrences to look at the 2012 Itasca Ellipse by Winnebago, priced at $336,000. With 450 horsepower, the coach meets Robert's muscle requirements to handle the mountainous terrain they'll have to travel through to reach their grandkids. But Judy would prefer an electric glass top range. Even though the couple was really excited about the adjustable king-sized bed, the master bath doesn't have a double vanity. Next they look at the brand new $399,000 2015 Thor Tuscany. The kitchen, master bathroom and 60-inch flat screen turn out to be a big hit. Back in Tampa, entrepreneurs Jessica Bongiorno and Daniel Pearson are selling everything to downsize into an RV that fits within their $250,000 budget. But they're both RV virgins who can't decide if they want a Class A coach or a fifth wheel trailer. Daniel and Jessica are paired with Lazydays RV Expert Tyler Dallie who takes them to look at the $239,000 Class A Forest River Charleston. Jessica is amazed at the storage space in the kitchen until she realizes it doesn't come with a stove. And the cruise ship vibe of the master bedroom doesn't go over well. Up next, Tyler takes them to see the $81,000 Grand Design Solitude. The interior space is small, but the kitchen has the stove, storage space and food pantry Jessica wanted. When Tyler shows off the slide feature in the master bedroom, the couple is surprised at how comfortable the room feels. Daniel especially likes the exterior storage space for his bikes. Daniel and Jessica decide that the affordable price and mobility factor of the Grand Design Solitude is the best option for their new RV lifestyle. When Christopher takes newlyweds Kyle and Kaley to see the $10,000 Forest River Rockwood Premier, they're not so sure about its log cabin look. Inside, the headspace, cozy bed, kitchenette and bathroom are all the couple needs to seal the deal on the Rockwood Premier. In Tucson, husband Robert convinces his wife Judy that brand new is best, so they purchase the Thor Tuscany, the perfect home away from home to visit their grandkids.
