“Rollin’ On TV” (ROTV) announced that Evanne Schmarder will be hosting a new weekly segment called “RV Life.”
According to a press release, Schmarder and her husband Ray have been full-time RVers for the past 14-years. Like so many RVers, they love to travel and love to eat, which led Schmarder to start her popular, online video cooking series called “The RV Cooking Show.”
On the series, Schmarder will show viewers easy-to-prepare meals when RVing and camping while also offering quick, how-to tips covering everything from managing health insurance while on the road, to getting along in tight spaces. Schmarder will also appear at various RV shows and events hosting seminars on cooking and RVing.
Schmarder and her husband are currently in Australia filming segments for “RVing Adventure Down-Under.” “ROTV” will be airing these segments in a couple of months, but viewers can start enjoying ‘RV Life’ starting on the May 18 episode of Rollin’ On TV.
“Rollin’ On TV” announced that its outdoor recreation show will now be available on Sunday mornings in Las Vegas, set to run at 11:30 on the local cable system. Previously, the show was only available on Dish and Direct TV in that area, the company reported in a press release.
TV2 KLBC which covers a portion of Arizona and Nevada has expanded it’s full coverage to include Las Vegas through Century Link Cable.
Besides having a population of around 600,000, RVing is a popular activity for Las Vegas residents as several popular RV destinations are located in the surrounding area.
“Having coverage in this area both on cable and on satellite is important to us and definitely a boost for our advertisers,” said Executive Director Joe Moniz.

TrailManor’s unique folding hardwall travel trailer is slated for cameo roles in two national television programs in June.
During the week of June 1, TrailManor will be a part of “Rollin’ On TV,” a program that focuses on the RV lifestyle in a segment that includes the Hartington, Neb., TrailManor manufacturing plant, demonstrations of new TrailManor model, and an interview with two TrailManor owners, according to a news release.
“Rollin’ On TV” is broadcast on cable networks around the country, and the segment will also be available on the show website, www.rollinontv.com. Anyone interested in viewing can locate a link to a local TV station at www.rollinontv.com.
On Thursday, June 13, and Sunday, June 16, TrailManor will reach a broader automotive-based audience with a feature segment on “Motorhead Garage.” The segment, hosted by Motorhead Garage personalities Dave Bowman and Sam Memmelo, explains in detail how a TrailManor operates, and Memmelo, an RV enthusiast, points out features he wished he had during his tent camping days — like the ability to open the TrailManor in the rain without everything inside getting wet.

“This TV campaign will allow us to reach millions more with the TrailManor message, and we’re excited about how this can translate into business for our dealers,” said Cleo Eickhoff, vice president of marketing.
TrailManor travel trailers are unique hardwall travel trailers that fold down for easy towing (similar to towing a tent camper). They are also much lighter than traditional travel trailers due to TrailManor’s laminated construction using lightweight materials. TrailManor trailers can be towed with properly equipped minivans, crossovers, and small SUVs. It only takes about one extra gallon of gas to tow a TrailManor 100 miles.
A TrailManor trailer sets up in less than two minutes and owners don’t even have to unhitch. Inside, TrailManors have the amenities of upscale travel trailers, including a full kitchen, a hardwall bath with shower and tub, plenty of storage, and great living space.

“Rollin’ On TV” announced the addition of Canadian Class B builder Pleasure-Way Industries Ltd. as its newest sponsor.
Executive Director Jose Moniz reported that ROTV is currently working with Pleasure-Way CEO Dean Rumpel and his staff in producing a couple of TV commercials that will begin airing in April along with an active web ad tied directly to the TV spots.
“The new Pleasure-Way ads will air on all ROTV stations and networks throughout the country along with Direct TV and Dish Network,” said Moniz.
Pleasure-Way, a family owned and operated company, located in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, began manufacturing van campers 27 years ago and has grown to be the second largest Class B motorhome manufacturer in North America.
This week’s segment of “Rollin’ On TV” features a trip to Flyte Camp Vintage Restorations in Oregon. The crew also spends time with Gary and Monica Wescott to learn all about their “Extreme RVing” lifestyle. And Britta, ROTV’s TrailerChix cooker, prepares a great chicken dish with a definite Mexican flare.
“Rollin’ On TV” announced that beginning April 1, all TV programs will be available with both Spanish and closed captioning.
“Reaching out to the growing Hispanic community has been a goal of ours for some time,” stated Executive Director Jose Moniz in a press release. “Being we were getting ready to institute closed captioning, we decided that this would also be the perfect opportunity to go ahead with the Spanish captioning.”
Moniz also reported that Middlebury, Ind.-based Jayco Inc. has signed on to sponsor both the closed and Spanish captioning for 2013.
Despite the recession, U.S. Latino households that earn $50,000 or more are growing at a faster rate than total households.
And when it comes to RVing and camping, the Hispanic community is the fastest growing ethnic group in the country, said Moniz, noting that 23% of Hispanics under the age of 18 tried camping for the first time on 2011.
“With these statistics we felt that addressing this market now was the right move for ROTV, and for the whole RV industry,” he said.
