Season 2, Episode 12
Two Hippies and a Cowboy
First time RVers Peter and Meredith Kosmoski have come to Lazydays in Tampa with their daughter Piper to find an RV big enough to house their weekend toys they use for outdoor adventures. They meet with RV expert Tracy "Bama" Elliot to see how much storage space they can get with their $170,000 budget. First the young family looks at the 2015 Tiffin Allegro, a customer favorite. Peter and Meredith like the interior storage space but wish it came with a garage to haul their gear. So next Tracy takes them to see the 2015 Forest River Catalyst, priced at $97,000. Peter and Meredith are instantly impressed the moment they step inside the trailer. Meredith loves the floor plan and Peter is in awe of the amenities, especially the garage space. But this would require the couple to purchase a pickup truck, which is something they hadn't considered.
Carter Williams is a road-weary cowboy who has grown tired of staying in motels and is looking to buy an RV large enough to house his rodeo crew. He also needs extra horsepower to tow his equipment and horse trailer. Carter is paired up with Lazydays RV Specialist Mike Sloan to see what he can get with his $200,000 budget. Mike takes Carter to see the 2015 Class B Pleasure-Way Pursuit. It's on the low end of his budget at $110,000, but turns out to be low on Carter's needs list. He likes the interior design but the shower, queen bed and driver's seat leave him feeling claustrophobic. So next they look at the $189,000 2008 Bloomer Horse Trailer. It's a combination of living quarters in the front, horse trailer in the back. Carter loves the four-horse capacity and hay bins in the trailer but gets even more excited when he sees the sleeping areas in the living quarters. The trailer sleeps five, and he has enough headroom to walk around comfortably. For Carter the choice is obvious and he picks the Bloomer Horse Trailer.
Hippies John and Terry O'Brien enjoy traveling to film and music festivals in their 60s flower power van, but the space is tight, and they're in the market to upgrade for modern amenities. They meet with Lazydays RV veteran Steve Mularz to see the options available in their $50,000 budget. Steve goes overboard and takes the couple to see the 2015 Winnebago Brave, which is double the cost of their budget. Terry thinks the outside looks like an ice cream truck. But John loves the spacious interior and master bedroom but wishes it were a lot cheaper. Next Steve takes them to see the less expensive 2015 Forest River R-Pod priced under budget at $24,000. It's a step up from their shagging wagon, but the interior space is tight. They like the outdoor kitchen and entertainment feature, but John and Terry are torn on what's the best decision for their lifestyle.
Terry likes the Forest River R-Pod but John doesn't want to go from one cramped space to another. Even though it's twice the size of their budget, the O'Briens pick the retro Winnebago Brave because it has the space and amenities they need. Peter and Meredith loved the features in the Tiffin Allegro and the Forest River Catalyst. But the Kosmoski's hadn't really considered buying a fifth wheel, so they decide to go with the Tiffin Allegro.
