Coming soon to Amazon, Vudu, PBS and Bell TV. Click here for updates.
You are invited to join us for the free DESERT PREMIERE WATCH PARTY FOR THE RVERS on Sunday November 17, for a live west coast screening of THE RVERS Episode 1 Premiere on Discovery Channel. The event starts at 7.30am at beautiful Catalina Spa & RV Resort in Desert Hot Springs (near Palm Springs), in sunny California.
We are thrilled that our dear friends – and co-hosts of the show – Tom and Caitlin Morton of Mortons on the Move will be joining us. Tom and Cait will be fresh back from their amazing GO NORTH adventure, with plenty of stories to share! Also attending this event will be Jason and Rae of the Getaway Couple and, of course we, Marc and Julie of RVLove – will be there, along with many others in the RVing community.
This event is FREE to attend and will be held in Catalina’s Upper Clubhouse, by the main mineral spa pool. Catalina will be serving up a light, continental breakfast, including coffee, tea and orange juice too. So if you are feeling festive and want mimosas, feel free to bring along a bottle of your favorite bubbly!
Yes, it’s an early start, but what a fun way to celebrate this great show with our RVing community. We can’t think of a better reason to get up so early on a Sunday morning!
After the screening, RVLove and the Mortons also be signing copies of the bestselling book “Living the RV Life – Your Ultimate Guide to Life on the Road” (by Marc and Julie Bennett) which also features The Mortons, and fellow co-hosts / RV veterans – the RV Geeks and Technomadia – plus many more. Keep reading for more info on the show and the event details.
Not in the south west?
If you can’t join us in person for this event, here’s a great article by Technomadia that explains all of your options for watching the show, no matter where you are). More details on other watch parties / events further down in this post.
What is the RVers?
In case you hadn’t heard, “The RVers” is a new television series dedicated to the RV lifestyle craze that’s sweeping the nation and the world. Current estimates are that more than 30 million people in North America live, vacation, or travel in their RV.
In addition to premiering on the Discovery Channel, The RVers will air on PBS, across Canada on the Wild Pursuit Network and Bell TV’s CHEK, as well as internationally through Canamedia. The series will also be available digitally on Apple TV (formerly iTunes), Amazon Prime Video, Google Play, Microsoft Xbox, and Vudu.
Anthony Nalli is the brainchild behind this show, as the creator, host and narrator. The RVers is the latest show by Four Points Television, the award-winning producer of the world’s most popular aviation TV series, The Aviators. The series has received a ton of support from many RV companies and organizations.
The first episode of the show will feature all hosts, including Mortons on the Move. Tom and Caitlin Morton hit the road as full-time RVers in September 2015 and recently completed a six-month journey through Canada and Alaska up to the Arctic Ocean, spanning more than 12,000 miles. They are videographers for the new TV series, as well as sharing co-host duties with other RV notables in the industry and dear friends: John Sullivan and Peter Knize of The RV Geeks, and Cherie Ve Ard and Chris Dunphy of Technomadia.
It’s going to be a fun and casual morning with breakfast and watch party. Here’s what we have planned, all taking place in Catalina’s Upper Clubhouse:
7.30am – Arrival, Breakfast and Socializing
8.00am – Watch The RVers on Discovery Channel
8.30am – Post Premiere Q&A with the Mortons
9.00am – Book signing with RVLove and the Mortons, more breakfast and socializing
10.00am – Event officially ends but you are free to stay and take a look around Catalina Spa & RV Resort and check out their mineral pools
