There’s more to RVing than the RV itself,” Mark and Dawn Polk, co-owners of RV Education 101, stated in a news release. “We want to offer technical information but we also want to provide relevant information on the entire scope of RVing. The joint venture with ‘RV Cooking Show’ is a great way to help educate consumers about many aspects of RVing and for people new to RVing to see firsthand what it’s all about.”

“Partnering with industry experts such as the Polks is a tremendous benefit to our audience. Their experience in RV know-how paired with our traveling and dining expertise serves viewers a well-rounded diet of RV smarts,” remarked Evanne Schmarder, producer and host of the “RV Cooking Show.” “We are absolutely delighted to be associated with RV Education 101 and ‘Mark’s RV Garage.’”
