Marco, thanks for posting the time and channel in your area. I should have mentioned the time of 10 pm is in the eastern time zone.

We don't seem to get this show on Discovery in Europe, I might see if I can find it online as I'd like to see it.

Nice job Allen! Cool camper too. What was the setup? Do I recall you had to ship it to the west Coast? Did they fly you in?

So what did you think about Addison Brown's $35,000 evaluation instead of $50,000?
Is it just my imagination that the Gen/Fan light stayed on when the engine started?
I've seen the Greenbrier in the background all season. I suppose they do the whole season in just a few days.
The show is on a little late for me, I usually catch glimpses when I'm getting ready for bed. I sort of like it okay. Addison Brown is a cutie pie but also well versed. Maybe I can't say something like that these days.

The Greenbriar was really good. no driver is show perfect but it sure looked close on TV. I would expect the value to increase since so few are around and the younger people like to camp in, well, camp!

Jim, you cannot say or think that these days. You must now be ostracized from the forum and your reputation blackened.

Unfortunately not available to watch in the UK. I doubt the show will come to us either. Perhaps someone will shamelessly put it online for me to watch?

Annoyingly we do get all of your episodes of Say Yes To The Dress which my wife really likes for some reason. Please don't send us any more!

I just watched the show and the Greenbrier looked really good. I have pictures I took of the van at Springfest 2010 in Helen, GA.

Finally seen this on You Tube. Lovely looking Greenbrier and I have to say Addison seems very easy on the eye too which is a bonus.

Who cares about the value, a real credit to the owner.

I actually talked to a highway patrolman about that in SC. A fifth wheel, king pin, hitch, the trailer and tow vehicle are considered one vehicle so towing a trailer behind the fifth wheel is legal as long as the total length is within the maximum allowed. That rig doesn't qualify here but it's fairly common with campers.
