If I sacrifice my wife in the name of RV science (and laugh my way through it), does that make me a terrible husband? Watch this video and judge for yourself:
I found the whole experience to be like an amusement park ride. Stef was less amused. And the less amused she got, the funnier I thought the whole thing was.
OK. I’m a terrible husband.
But the bigger picture here – as with all of these “Winnebago Versus” videos – is that they built a facility to run these kinds of tests in the first place. I can tell you for a fact that not all manufacturers have something like this.
In software, there’s a saying we use when we can’t duplicate a problem in a test environment. It’s called “testing in production”. It means “we *think* we know what caused the problem, and we *think* we’ve fixed it – but we won’t really know until you let everyone use it.”
So, when you’re bouncing down the road in your RV, with your belongings and your loved ones siting underneath the TV… are you “testing in production”? Or has your manufacturer already done this testing for you?
Something to think about.
(And yes, it’s taken several months for Stef to stop reminding me about this.)
