Will a new NBC reality series steer more families toward the motorhome lifestyle?
"The Great American Road Trip," produced by BBC Worldwide, will debut July 7. It features seven families of four traveling cross-country in Tye A motorhomes.
Over eight episodes, the families will travel classic Route 66 while competing in games that will ultimately lead one family to victory. These comical challenges will take place in well-known locations such as the Grand Canyon or along the Mississippi River.
Along the way, viewers will see quirky American landmarks ranging from the World’s Largest Rocking Chair to the Muffler Men to Cadillac Ranch. Scenes will also be set in campgrounds.
One family will be eliminated each week based on their performance in the “end of the road” elimination game.
Family outdoor fun is the centerpiece of the show. One family will win the grand prize.
