When Tillie finds out that Hank, Peggy and Chuck are trying to sell the RV behind her back, she runs away.


Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Huh??

    This was a season 13 episode.
  • RV Time!

    The first of the "lost" or "unaired" episodes. This is a pretty good episode, and it's nice to have Hank's mom in it, who was hardly in the last few seasons at all. As the other reviewer says, it does a good job of closing off his mom's storyline. I thought the plot was pretty decent, but I can kind of see why it was selected to be cut. The episode focused a lot on a character that was hardly in the show. So, while it was actually pretty funny, there really isn't a lot of an emotional attachment to Hank's mom. She was never as important to the series as Cotton. That being said, I am glad it was finally released because it does give a few good laughs.moreless
  • Deals with Real world issues and puts closure for Hank's Mom

    What makes this series so good, is how down to earth it is. It is believable. Hank's father Cotton surely was a handful, but a lot less is known about his Mom. In this episode, we see how much Hank care's for his Mom when she decides to get re-married, and sell her condo for an RV with her new husband.

    While Hank worries about his Mom's choice in husbands, he quickly learns he needs to worry about his Mom more when she does more sporadic choices.

    The episode deals with real issues, and it seams them together nicely in a endearing episode.moreless

  • NOTES (1)

    • 20th Century Fox Television initially ordered 13 DABE production episodes, but decided to keep the show in production for four additional episodes (DABE14-DABE17). However, the network only aired the last of those four episodes (13 total for that production season), and confirmed it would not air the remaining four unaired episodes (DABE13-DABE16) in prime time, opting instead for syndication. These episodes premiered on May 3-7, 2010 on local stations, and also premiered on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim on May 17-20, 2010. This is the first of these episodes.


    • Dale: RV's are a ticket to meth addiction and KOA sites where the law has no meaning.

      KOA, or Kampgrounds of America, is a chain of campgrounds featured all around the United States and Canada.

    • Bobby: If this were a Hugh Grant movie, this is the moment where he would run in. If this was a Julia Roberts movie, this is the moment where she would run out.

      Hugh Grant is an actor famous for playing in romantic comedies. Julia Roberts was in the film "Runaway Bride".

    • Title: An allusion to the Jackie Gleason sitcom The Honeymooners.
