Did you guys see the Airstream on the GAC channel show called Going RV?

The couple went to look at a fifth wheel, AS International Serenity and a class A. This is going to be first RV and are going to be full timers. I'll give you a hint which RV they choose - think smallish but full of quality, function and style. The same reasons I had when I chose my FC!

Wow, that's unusual. Most of those RV shows that I have seen show the Airstream first. The couple (or more often a family of 8) swoon a little and are generally complimentary. They tell them the price (the setup) and move on to the next one. They end up at the giant cardboard 5th wheel with 2 "fireplaces" and retractable TV that sleeps a baker's dozen. They ask them to guess the price and, of course, they guess outrageously high because of the AS price. When they hear the actual price the family goes wild!! I love those shows. I often wonder if AS pays them a fee to arrange it that way so production can keep up.

The set up was strange and my wife commented that the sales rep did the couple an injustice by showing what he did. He showed them a 2015 Intl Serenity with an MSRP of $91k. The couple loved it but thought it was too small for full timing and was cost prohibitive so they asked the sales rep to see something bigger but still an AS. The rep found them a used 30 ft International for $59500 which I thought was a killer deal (almost too good to be true).

We had GAC on our previous DirecTV package- $113 per month- too high-
So we cut back to an $85 per month package- still too expensive- and no longer have GAC.
I wish I could convince my wife to get rid of DirecTV altogether.

If your contract is up, call them and threaten to quit. I did. They will cut rate substantially to get you to commit for another year. More to commit for two.

I called Comcast (we had them before) with every intention of quitting and they cut even more (so much that it actually made me angrier that they had been gouging me to that point) without any commitment. We quit Comcast anyway a few months later when we moved. Directv is much better but all are too much.

No GAC available from my cable provider. The network doesn't offer streams, either. I even emailed Flyte Camp and asked if they offered DVDs of show episodes, but no response. I guess I can live without it.

I can live without any of it- any amount of money for continuous re-runs, filth, garbage, and advertising the same thing on 5 channels is too much. They should let choose what you want to watch and charge $2 per channel. It might still be $80, but every channel would be something worthwhile that you actually want to watch.
We lost GAC after the first episode of "Flippin' RV's".

GAC is included with TWC's basic cable. Watched the show last night. I just knew they would pick an Airstream. By the way...full episodes of Flippin' RV's can be watched on YouTube.
