Refurbishing the landmark RV for "RV Pinay In The USA" so that Ivy and I can drive around America where she can experience my home country on her terms. Help be a part of a Filipina's story who's never been here.

Who Are We?

My name is Cameron Farmer, your RV driver, co-host, and videographer of RV Pinay In The USA, a travel reality show about a Filipina who has never been to America but would like to see the sights, sounds, and foods associated with it. My goal is simple: give this 24 year-old a grand tour of the United States from California to Maine. But the RV I recently purchased and christened "Jasmine" from a first fundraiser needs more work in order to drive to the places we're invited to. And YOU may become part of that show if you wish!

Why should you donate and/or become part of this program? How often is it that someone new has entered your life and you had the ability to show that person around to the places you love and enjoy - being so excited that person is swept up in something that leaves a lasting memory. That's what I want for Ivy Pagente - my fiancee. Yes, this is my fiancee. As much as I have tried promoting another travel reality show based on my spending one week with a social media acquaintance (Kingspirit Travels: The Philippines), RV Pinay In The USA is the answer to a pinay (a girl) in my shoes. But she's not spending one week with someone - she's spending a lot of time getting to know people who have invited us to visit. Yes, we already have two visits from people highly interested in this little show.

What Do We Need?

All this requires an RV that runs strong and remains so in order to brave the elements. Mechanically, Jasmine is almost perfect. But she has lapsed registration and needs a smog test, including insurance. I know how to drive the thing and have also temporarily shored up broken windows (from a jealous girl to an ex) but could use assistance from an RV specialist to get everything in working order. I keep this goal as low as possible as this is a 1977 Dodge Sportsman Mobile Traveler, Inc. with a 360 engine. I know she'll need new tires and the owner tossed in new rims on the rear (but would rather not have the inconvenience associated - they'll be up for sale) and I feel are impractical at the moment. Another battery is needed and I am more than confident an appropriate one will be purchased to handle the stresses and strains of driving through various weather conditions. Speaking of weather, wipers are also sorely needed as they are broken and replacement is required. I want Ivy to feel safe, comfortable, and warm/cool depending on her travels.

Apart from the fixing of items in and around the RV, any extra monies raised go to food and gas needs for the show. Yes, we will have a budget in place for day-to-day needs like toilet paper, good food, and such, but our RV is small (22 feet) and we'll have a limited amount of clothing to take with us. But we intend to have a barbecue party at the start of our journey - which you could be a part of, too, if you are in the Los Angeles area.

I surmise that in 5-6 months (barring obstacles) Jasmine will be ready for action. Once Ivy gets here she will be working for her modeling agency for a while then be able to start working with me when she has time off - giving us the chance to squeeze in a few episodes of a pilot. I will be using my own recording equipment but I know Ivy and I will need help to edit our travels. 

How Can You Help?

I'm only one guy putting this all together. I am asking for your help to make a small donation, spread the word on social media, approach a company or business to help out (sponsors encouraged!) while I'm looking for the parts we will need for this RV. This is truly a grassroots effort to give the American TV viewing public something that's upbeat, fun, adventurous, and relateable as we need a bit of sanity and laughter in our lives right now. Ivy is really looking forward to this as well as I.

Want to be part of this show? Here's something you can do:  invite us. Yes, you can be featured in an episode of RV Pinay In The USA by inviting Ivy to experience your neck of the woods. All you have to do is reach us through KingspiritTravels@yahoo.com and put in the Subject line "Invitation" and tell Ivy what you want to show her. Give us a great pitch and we'll contact you with further instructions. At the moment we're seeking invitations from California, Oregon, Washington, and Idaho as these will be our featured areas to film at this time. You can send in a short video if you wish or just write it down and send photos of yourself for our consideration. Tell Ivy why you want her to visit you.

Become part of the adventure. Show us America's best. Jasmine, Ivy, and I will be waiting.
