Rocker Bret Michaels

Bill and Sally Layton have a rockin’ RV. Their 1974 bright yellow GMC jalopy has been tricked out by rock-n-roller Bret Michaels, who worked his magic on the worn-out rig for the television show “Rock My RV with Bret Michaels.”

“Do you trust me?” Michaels said to the Laytons as they drove their aging camper van into a body shop in Southern California. “Then, hand over those keys.”

The Colorado Springs Gazette reported that the local couple had no idea what to expect. They just knew that their beast of a ride needed a new look. The revamped Layton RV will be revealed at 7 p.m. June 16 on the Travel Channel.

Michaels, who is best known as the front man for the rock band Poison, spends about nine months a year touring in his RV and estimates he’s logged more than 3 million miles in his home on wheels.

He customized his own RV with some over-the-top amenities and felt others should have a similar ride. He teamed with the Travel Channel for a 16-show series that overhauls RVs arguably ready for the junkyard and dresses them up with such things as flat screen TVs, gaming stations, flip-out barbecue grills and rooftop decks.

“It was one of those once-in-a-lifetime opportunities,” Sally said. “We thought when will we have another chance like this? Let’s just go for it.”
