RV Week Offers Look at Massive Tri-Level RV
From Sunday through Thursday, “RV Week” features no less than 11 premieres of RV-related programs, airing every night at 9 and 10 p.m. EDT. “RV Week is a build up for the network’s July 27 premiere of “Big Time RV,” which promises to give viewers an all-access pass inside Lazydays RV, one of America’s largest RV dealerships located in Tampa, Fla.
Finding a spot at No. 9 on Mega RV’s top 10 countdown was Mickey Larson’s “The Exxx-Tended RV,” which features three levels packed inside a converted Freightliner chassis. The lower level is the sleeping quarters, the middle level serves as the kitchen and bathroom, and the top level is the lounge. Larson said it took three years to construct the 32-foot long, 13 1/2-foot tall RV, which weighs 80,000 pounds.
Coming in at No. 5 was a 2103 Millennium converted coach owned by Steve and Irene White. The $2 million RV is equipped with two slides in the living area and two slides in the rear bedroom, and features marble floors and granite counters, heated toilet seat and a crystal chandelier in the bedroom.
“No matter where we go, no matter how much we travel, at the end of the day we come home to a palace on wheels,” Jane White said.
Another “Mega RV” was Curt Fischer’s “Mega Hauler,” a 2011 American Coach pulling a matching trailer. With three slides opening up 480 square feet of living space, the RV/trailer combination weighs 80,000 pounds when fully loaded with two Harley Davidson motorcycles and the Fischer family toys.
“It takes a mega RV to pull my trailer,” Fischer said “That’s my kind of camping.”
The familiar format of “Extreme RV” follows the construction of three RVs. Last night’s episode put the spotlight on a TC59 TerraCross by Unicat, a custom renovation of a 1991 Airstream Classic by Timeless Travel Trailer, and Bespoke Coachworks’ transformation of a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter into a Class B motorhome.
