RV Restoration

In case you missed the premiere, Flippin' RVs airs Wednesday, March 19th at 8PM and 10PM EDT/PDT on GAC.

Flippin’ RVs covers the incredible world of vintage and collectible travel trailers following our trailer-obsessed husband and wife team, Justin and Anna Scribner. Together they seek out rare trailers around the country and return their finds to their custom shop, Flyte Camp Vintage Trailer Restoration in Bend, Oregon to restore and surpass their original glory.

I saw it and it represents all that has gone BAD with the Hobby.

I did miss the premiere.
I simply could not remember network or time or day.
I could not find anything online.

OK. I did remember the network and the time, but I thought it was Sunday instead of Wednesday- it was a church night-

Phony drama, all about $$$$$. I watched this happen with vintage Porsches and it ruined the hobby for me. When prices went into the stratosphere everything changed. No more DIYers, no more hot rodding, no more die-hard enthusiasts. Just a bunch of rich poseurs trying to establish status and impress everyone. The very opposite of the culture of this forum and this fabulous community.

I really hope that vintage RVing doesn't suffer the same fate.

I didn't watch the show, but this thread got me curious enough to look it up on the Internet. The company's (Flyte Camp) Facebook page calls what they do a "resto-mod." Which kind of tells me that if they went to work on a vintage Airstream, the end product would not be Airstream inside and out, but rather retro-chic kitsch in an Airstream shell. Some people like that sort of thing, but Airstream purists undoubtedly would be shocked and appalled.

Does that match the opinions of people who actually watched the show?

I watched the show. I was entertained. It might ruin it for people looking to find vintage trailers to rebuild at a reasonable cost, however. As far as purists go, so trailers are beyond being kept "pure" and are then made into a usable trailer with an old shell (that's what my Bambi II is). Not all rehabbers are flippers, but those who are will probably have their market $ raised. I especially liked the Spartenette on the show & coveted it!

Not much on the tv thing Vikings and walking dead other than that Mickey for the grand children. My butt is wide enough without couch 101. Drama and money get ratings so it will probably be a hit

TV kills Brain Cells.
Reality TV kills Brains.
I only have One Brain, and started out with a smaller than average amount of Cells.
Your mileage may vary.

I have to admit they do beautiful work. Their 1948 Spartan Manor was parked next to my modest trailer in the Sheep Barn at the fair grounds. Very nice.

I love the idea of rescuing vintage stuff and restoring it. What I can't stand is when a stupid reality show puts the emphasis on the $$$ aspect, which they always do. The stupid title demeans the otherwise noble enterprise.

For whatever it's worth from this old geezer, I agree. Way too much money chasing way too little common sense.....
