“Our goal is simple”, says Warren. “We want to spread the message of joy, excitement and adventure (and the occasional bump-in-the road) that comes from RVing. More and more people each day are realizing the tremendous benefits to health and family that RVing provides. Add in making wonderful life-long memories with those we love and THAT’s what The RV Show USA is all about.”
Co-Host & The RV Nana
(President of PPL Motor Homes)
I have been with PPL Motor Homes since 1980 and have been fortunate enough to grow up with the company. A native Houstonian, I have been blessed with years of wonderful experiences and memories of RVing with family and friends. With 3 children, 8 grandchildren and a ton of friends who I refer to as my adopted family, I was a Nana long before I became RV Nana. I was blessed to have shared this lifestyle with my late husband, a Cajun from Lafayette, and his spirit will live on in all of us as we continue down the road of life.My life with PPL has given me so many wonderful chapters, from sharing my RV experiences as RV Nana to working with the Texas Campground Owners Association and holding the position of President of the Texas RV Association from 2011-2013, so it’s easy to see that the RV lifestyle is my style.
I’m excited about being a part of the Team of RV enthusiasts on The RV Show USA and look forward to sharing RV tips and stories on this new and exciting radio show. Watch for me on the road …I’m the one with the RV Nana license plates on my car and RV, and share your RV experiences with me. See you soon!
