Travel Channel to Air New ‘Extreme RVs’ Shows
A new three-hour block of “Extreme RV” shows will premiere on the Travel Channel on Nov. 11. The RVing Examiner reported that Brentwood Communications International Inc. , a North Hills, Calif.-based TV production company, said the three-episode special will feature another impressive selection of cutting-edge motorhomes and travel trailers as well as a raft of classic RV restorations.
The first one-hour episode, which airs at 6 p.m. Pacific, features country music group The Band Perry’s luxury Prevost XLII tour bus, Jay Leno’s 1961 Flxible Starliner Coach and three Airstream rebuilds by the master craftsmen at Wheat Ridge, Colo.-based Timeless Travel Trailers.
The Band Perry’s bus – supplied by motorhome specialist Hemphill Brothers comes complete with band bunks and a mobile recording studio so that the group can cut music tracks whilst on the road. Leno’s splendid Flxible Starliner Coach conversion – undertaken by Bernard Juchli, General Manager at Jay Leno’s Big Dog Garage – offers a new spin on a classic design icon.
The complete vehicle refit even included the replacement of the vehicle’s original Detroit Diesel power plant with an uprated DD 6V92 two-stroke cycle, 552 cubic-inch, V-block Series 92 diesel engine so that Leno could tow a race car behind the unit on his weekend jaunts.
