Yep. Porsches I used to buy for $30,000 are now going for $200,000+. It prices most folks out of the hobby, which is a shame. In the old time vintage Porsche world "flippers" were widely disrespected - it was a derogatory term. It seems like it's becoming some kind of positive term now: flipping cars, flipping houses, flipping RVs.

I suppose I'm just getting old and grumpy.

What makes the value shoot up isn't the few with money that can afford to max out their designs. It's the fact that the interest in the subject goes through the roof that makes the value go up like that. In general, value goes down when you start changing the originals.

Same with football. People complain how much they get paid, when it's our own fault for watching the games. If people lost interest, they wouldn't be paid as much. That's the entertainment business all around.

The cost to make a show means it has to bring a certain amount of viewers. If the show didn't flip to an extreme level, only a tiny few would watch. This is what YouTube videos should tackle.

I've never heard of this program or channel -- GAC? We have Dishnet, could someone please tell me the channel number?

I agree about the drama of these shows, they're all doing it. Duck Dynasty, OC Choppers, Fast N Furious, etc. -- they all have a group of friends, family, or employees and then comes the interactions for that program; complaints, arguing among themselves, etc. all as a part of the "hook" to keep you watching for entertainment. In the beginning it is somewhat entertaining, but then it becomes more of the same.

I tried to catch the show last night beginning at 8 PM CST.
They ran several episodes of Celebrity RV's and RV 2013, but no Flippin' RV's.
GAC - Great American Country is 326 on DirecTV. I have no idea what channel it is on Dish.

We have been watching the last few weeks episodes on DirecTV, Very interesting! My Husband's cousin has a Bodyshop in Prineville, (not far from Bend), the guy they use for their pin striping was on this episode we're presently watching, LOL!

In this week's episode, they worked on a '62 Bambi. They 'fixed' the original subfloor by laying new plywood on top of it.
