Season 2, Episode 5
Road Warriors and Ruff Riders
The Pink family arrives at Lazydays in Tampa to upgrade to a larger, used Class A RV. With a $50,000 trade-in, their budget is $250,000. Husband Dean wants enough horsepower to tow heavy equipment on their farm back home, wife Lucia wants a larger living area and son Steven is looking for a comfortable bed to fit his large frame. The Pinks have also brought along their show dog Stark, who's here to give his seal of approval. They meet up with Lazydays RV Expert Mark Young who takes them to see the $190,000 2014 Winnebago Forza. At 6'6", Dean likes the ceiling height but needs more than a 340 horsepower engine. Hairstylist Charles McCormack is planning to expand his business with an RV that he can drive to hair shows around the country. But first he needs to figure out if he can even handle one. He meets up with driving instructor Jon Gold at the Lazydays parking lot in Tucson to test drive a truck and trailer and a Class A RV. Charles is off to a rough start, hitting several cones and is slow to respond to Jon's instructions. Jon tries to get Charles to relax and he goes through the obstacle course again. This time Charles does a complete 180º and passes. But passing the first test doesn't stop him from feeling anxious when it's time to test drive the Class A RV.
Road warriors Kimberly Reddick and Craig Hall are in the market for a sleek toy hauler that matches their style. Kimberly wants a large kitchen and enough sleeping space for family trips. Craig wants a huge garage to house his bike. Kimberly keeps bringing up their $90,000 budget but Craig prefers not to focus on the "b" word in their trailer search. They're paired with Lazydays RV Expert Dannette Hernandez, who shows the couple the "mack daddy" of toy haulers - the 42-foot Grand Design Momentum. The kitchen, large garage and "spoonability" of the queen-sized bed are a big hit until Kimberly hears the $105,000 price tag. So they look at the $75,500 Forest River XLR Viper as an under budget alternative. The couple is impressed with the exterior paint job but the excitement stops once they see the tight living space. Kimberly and Craig decide to have another talk about the "b" word.
Kimberly and Craig weren't happy with the cramped living space in the XLR Viper and after much debate; they agree to stretch their budget for the Grand Design Momentum. Hairstylist Charles was nervous about test driving the Class A RV but he surprises himself and instructor Jon when he passes without any hiccups, so now he's free to start his new venture. When Mark shows the Pink family the $209,000 2014 Fleetwood Discovery they instantly fall in love with the 380 horsepower engine, two recliners and extra sleeping areas. Show dog Stark felt right at home so the RV passes the "Stark test." The Pink family purchases the Fleetwood Discovery and after a month of traveling on the road for Stark's dog competitions they are still extremely happy with their decision.
