Catalina Spa and RV Resort, located east of Desert Hot Springs, California, has teamed up with RV YouTube and blog personalities Marc and Julie Bennett of RV LOVE and Tom and Caitlin Morton of MORTONS ON THE MOVE to host the Desert Premiere of the first episode of The RVers (www.thervers.tv) on Sunday, November 17, with a screening and complimentary breakfast being served between 7:30 and 10 a.m. for those RSVPing in advance. Catalina is also welcoming guests to stay over the night prior at a discounted rate and is offering a special November weekly rate, as well as extra discounts for members of Thousand Trails.
The event will be held at the resort’s upper clubhouse, with a live screening of the show at 8 a.m. PDT. The RVers will first make its national debut on the Discovery Channel the same day at 8 a.m. EDT.
The RVers is a new television series dedicated to the lifestyle craze that’s sweeping the nation and the world. Current estimates are that more than 30 million RVers 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.
The first episode of the show will feature 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: John Sullivan & Peter Knize of The RV Geeks, Cherie Ve Ard & Chris Dunphy of Technomadia, and Anthony Nalli, the show’s creator, host and narrator. The show is the latest product by Four Points Television, the award-winning producer of the world’s most popular aviation TV series, The Aviators. Many RV companies and organizations have pledged sponsorship and/or support of the new series. At the Catalina screening event, it is anticipated that the Show’s Creator and other hosts will live stream in during the premiere, to chat with guests at the event and answer questions.
The event will also include a book signing with Marc and Julie Bennett, who are well-known in the RV industry for their online courses and as authors of “Living the RV Life – Your Ultimate Guide to Life on the Road” (Adams Media/Simon and Schuster). The first and only book about the RV lifestyle by a major publishing house, it is already a bestseller, in its 3rd print run. Show hosts – the Morton’s, Technomadia and the RV Geeks – are also featured in the book and the Morton’s will be signing copies of the book at the event.
Resort manager Kevin Miller said, “This is exciting to have representatives from the RV industry attending an event of this magnitude and highly respected bloggers co-hosting with us.”
