Trivia

The interior set for the family's trailer was a real Airstream trailer which had been removed from its original frame. It was made about three feet wider than a normal Airstream trailer and then reassembled on a platform which could also accommodate lighting and camera equipment. Sections of the trailer set could be removed, one by one, to allow for various angles of camera coverage. See more »

Goofs

The interior Airstream set was about three feet wider than the Airstream trailer which was used for exterior shots. The extra width in the set's ceiling was covered by a removable, simulated skylight which is clearly visible throughout the series. The top of the trailer shown in exterior shots has no visible signs of a skylight. See more »

Quotes

[Opening Credits Narration, Season One]
Russel Greene: My name is Russell Greene. Maybe you passed me and my family out on the highway. Maybe you were driving some fancy sports car or an old beat up four-door. Or maybe you've had some hard times like us and you're out on the road with your house hitched up behind you, and America the Beautiful up ahead. But whoever you are you be sure to give us a wave the next time you drive by. Cause we're your neighbors, and we're all on the road together.

The BEST T.V. show I have ever seen.
28 April 2000 | by (Victoria, Australia) – See all my reviews

I love this show with its warmth, love,caring and morel values that unfortunately, society nowadays lacks. I'm more a sci-fi , action adventure fan but this show (Promised Land) is my absolute favorite. I only just a few weeks ago (April 2000) discovered this show and it has made me do a lot of thinking. This show has values that people should follow as it will make them better people. I recently discovered that Promised Land is no longer in production and that saddens me greatly. The Characters and actors who portray them, have entered my life and my heart and I hope I never forget them and the show. I love it.
