P.S. the show was a waste of time , wish they had a show on just AS motorhome like orange county chopper
Is anyone besides me getting really tired of these Mega RV shows that feature nothing more than multi-million dollar coaches?
Let's face it, the folks who can swing that kind of $ aren't watching shows like this.
I'm like others, why don't they do a show that features everyday restorations of Vintage motorhomes. Doesn't have to be all Airstream. There were some great old motorhomes from the 70's and 80's. FMC and Travco are two that come to mind.
I tried watching that show I posted about all the way through, seems they spent more time on the other featured RV's than the Airstream. But I'll be honest, mid-20's for a new engine? I can't even justify a diesel swap, much less than $90,000 for a total restoration.
These shows are getting too much like the Kardashian's. Lotsa 'flash' and no reality.
What was the British guys show that ended with "Champagne Wishes and Caviar Dreams"? Seems that's all the shows now want to feature. I know the best way to see them cancelled, it's the off switch, lol.
