Jeff Goldblum Visits Jayco, RV Hall of Fame

Hollywood icon Jeff Goldblum – made famous by such movies as The Fly and Jurassic Park – recently took a deep dive into RV culture on his Disney+ series The World According to Jeff Goldblum.

The episode, which began streaming on the Disney+ service on Dec. 27, features Goldblum visiting the “RV Capital of the World” in order to understand the mode of transportation and the accompanying lifestyle.

At the RV Hall of Fame, Goldblum was given a tour by Ryan Szhlarek, vice president of the RV HoF to better understand the evolution and merger of recreation and vehicle. The star also toured Jayco’s Entegra production line, assembling parts of an RV himself, and gain exposure to the Amish employees comprising a large portion of the RV workforce.

The National Geographic series on Disney+ aims to explore various cultures and movements. The urge to explore RVs stemmed from the recent boom in RVing – from nomads to Millennials. In this episode, Goldblum “ponders the conflict between our need for stability and desire to roam free,” according to a press release from Disney.

This is the second time this year that Disney has promoted the RV lifestyle through media. In June, Disney-owned Pixar released Toy Story 4, which featured an RV for the majority of the film, promoting the movie in partnership with Go RVing.

Those interested in watching this episode of The World According to Jeff Goldblum can sign up for a seven-day trial of Disney+.
