A one-hour episode of “Beach-n-RVs” that broadcast Sunday (March 31) on the Travel Channel took a look at a series of “hot and sexy” RVs and some of the resort destinations favored by their owners. reports that from opulent $2 million land yachts and Airstream-based luxury hotel rooms to a beachside RV park in northwest Florida and a vintage RV rally in Newport Dunes, California, Beach-n-RVs took viewers on “the ultimate tour of America’s hottest RV spots.”

According to the Travel Channel show, well-heeled RVers in search of an “ultra-luxe glamping experience” head for the Orange Beach-based Heritage Motor Coach Resort & Marina on Alabama’s Emerald Coast where RV sites will run you a cool $200-500k. Not only does this small chunk of change buy you a parking spot but your lot also includes a luxury coach house and boat slip plus access to a range of luxury amenities.

“You have these high net worth individuals who travel around in these motorhomes that are valued at over a million dollars,” said Duke Gibbs, founder of the resort. “We wanted to create an environment and an atmosphere and a resort that matched the level of the lifestyle that they are used to,” he added.

“Beach-n-RVs” also took a look a state-of-the-art $2.5 million Featherlite luxury coach at the company’s Suffolk, Va.-based headquarters. Built on a 45-foot-long Prevost chassis, Featherlite’s mega RV masterpieces not only provide all the comforts of home (and more) but they also sport an electronic control panel that astronauts on the International Space Station would be proud of.
