One of our favorite aspects of the RV Nomads film project is being fully immersed in the RV community. While our film story arc covers the big picture of the full time RV movement, there are a plethora of sub-stories that we believe are absolutely instrumental in the overall narrative. The RV community and the story behind it is a critical piece of the puzzle.
And in our view the two people most equipped to contribute to this part of the story are Xscapers Founders Travis and Melanie Carr. Most in the RV community already know who Travis and Melanie are, but for those who don’t… the two are deeply integrated into the movement.
Travis, the son of Bud & Cathie Carr, was exposed to RVing from a young age, just like his mom. After he served in the military, Travis and his wife Melanie returned to the RVing lifestyle. He began in the maintenance department at the Rainbow Parks, but his focus quickly shifted as he took the lead on upgrading every park’s reservation system, bringing Rainbow Parks into the digital age. Since then, Travis and Melanie have made themselves an irreplaceable part of the Escapees culture. In 2015, they founded Xscapers, a lifestyle group of Escapees that brings the club back to its origins. Xscapers are RVers who work full-time while traveling, just like Joe and Kay did in the 70s. Under their guidance, Xscapers has grown to provide numerous benefits targeting the needs of this demographic, including the development of Escapees’ Job Board and diversifying Escapees’ social and educational opportunities.
With the retirement of Cathie and Bud in 2016, Travis and Melanie stepped up as President and Vice-President of Escapees RV Club, respectively. They work hard to uphold the principles on which Escapees was founded while planning the future development of Escapees.
Escapees (and Xscapers) is, without a doubt, easily one of the most valuable RV clubs out there. By far. The tools they provide, the resources members get access to and the network provided as part of membership is second to none.
A benefits overview sells the importance of membership itself. But when you add in the incredible community of RVers members get instantly introduced to, it quickly becomes a no-brainer.
The RV Nomads cast (Including a LOT of RVer faces you’re probably familiar with) is set and production is underway. The full film release is scheduled for fall of 2018 and we can’t wait to share this incredible story with the world!
