We sold our house last week, and we're 95% ready to take the plunge.

Excellent job on the video.

Thanks. It was pretty informal, but sometimes informal is fun. We'll do some pretty videos one day.

I have to admit I'm a little surprised you found so much non-functional stuff on that RV. I would have expected better. But in any case the purpose was to get your feet wet and have a taste of living in an RV, and it looks like it did a great job of filling that need! I'm glad you had fun. It's a bummer this has been the soggiest May in Utah I can remember.... I'm not so fond of being outdoors when it's all muddy day after day.

yeah, it looked good on the outside, and we made do with what we had, but we were disappointed to say the least.

What camera did you use to make the video?

This series was shot with a hero 4 black and a hero 3 black @ 1080p. I have a handful of cameras I film with. For my clients I use my DSLRs, but for our backpacking trips, quick documentaries, and run and gun style shots I use the GoPros.

The LED lights inside the RV are horrid for filming, but it is what it is. I wanted to focus more time on learning about the RV experience than filming (planning each shot, adjusting the lighting, etc.)

Cruise America called me today and thanked me for my video/review. They tracked down the vehicle we rented and gave them a list of maintenance tasks to repair on that unit. I was really impressed with the person I spoke with, and my opinion of them as a company really rose a lot. I have a lot of respect for them for following up with me to explain how this isn't the norm and that they're sorry I didn't have a better experience. Top notch guys.

Not top notch unless they offered a partial refund. They acted because of your video and the potential of 7 billion people seeing it.

I won't go into details, but they made sure we were happy and they hooked us up. I didn't demand anything, but they were super understanding. The man I spoke to was extremely sympathetic and extremely sincere. They went to great lengths to make sure we were taken care of.
