So just went to the Discovery Channel to check it out, all I really saw was clips of those who travel in the $200,000 RV range and not much if any in the what I would call the down to earth RVers like we would normally see in RV campgrounds. From what I saw watching YouTube videos would probably be more entertaining for me, but we will give the channel a chance and see what takes place.

Technomadia, Chris and Cherie, started in a teardrop and graduated to an Elite way back when Pete, Steve and Sherry got their Elites.  They then moved up to a restored class A.  They are pretty down to earth and provide a great service to RVers with their videos and posts on cell phones, boosters and other tech.  You can do a search and find a number of posts by them on this forum.  Not sure what the focus of this new show will be but might be interesting.  If you have cell phone or tech questions their web site is a good place to go.

Yep, their website was a valuable resource for me when we were deciding on a trailer and especially later when planning out modifications.

Chris and  Cherie will be talking about mobile internet and tech gadgets in episodes 2 and 4. I hope you can watch. 

They're smart and interesting,  engaging people. Part of our original moderator team on the forum.

They are great couple, well informed on living the life as nomads.  After initially fulltiming in a solar equipped teardrop, they moved into a single axle Elite, followed by a large converted vintage bus.  They put the bus into storage and wandered about in a yacht, through the Great Lakes, St Lawrence River, down the east coast, around Florida, and up the Mississippi.

They both make their living through the work of the internet, so maintaining good broadband is very important to them.  It should be a very informative show.

Has anyone been able to find Season 1, Episode1?  All I can find is episode 2 and beyond.

I watched episode 2 last week (DVR) and enjoyed it but found the episode to be about 90% commercials.  I'll keep watching (for now).

To specifically answer your question - no.  But I've not looked for it either.  If you saw episode 2 then you really got the gist of episode 1 - how to learn to drive a big class A.

At this point - I agree with your assessment of the series so far.  Perhaps not exactly 90% commercials but the content has not been what I would call "riveting" either.  And, yes, I do understand that we are not the portion of the audience that would get excited by learning how to drive a class A.  Even the short portion in episode 2 with Technomadia (former Oliver owners)  was fairly superficial without substance.  I really do hope that things improve very quickly.
