“RV Buddies, the internet-based adventure-lifestyle show, announced the launching of “Project RV,” a series of webisodes that will follow the bumper-to-bumper restoration of a classic 1977 GMC 26’ Royale motorhome.
"We’re really excited about this,” said show host Mark Summers. “Restoring, repairing or upgrading an RV is something most of the 8.2 million RV-owning households have either done, wanted to do, or dreamed about doing over the course of their RV ownership. RV Buddies wanted to show them how we’d do it - in a way that maintains the integrity of a coach’s original design but updates it to supply the owner with the modern amenities that he or she wants.
RV Buddies selected a very used 1977 GMC 26’ Royale because it is a true classic with unique design, detailing and engineering features. It is one of 12,921 models GMC built from 1973 to 1978 before deciding to discontinue producing luxury motorhomes to focus on their truck operations. “It’s a great example of a coach that has good bones but its fine points have suffered from the ravages of time,” Summers said. “It’s going to be a lot of fun for our audience to follow the process.”
Over the next nine months, RV Buddies will film and report on Project RV through four phases – demolition, chassis and drive train, interior, and exterior body and paint. Audience members will be able to follow the process through a combination of video and written reports and even email their questions to Summers. “That’s the beauty of the internet,” Summers said, “Our audience will be able to interact with us during the project and apply what they learn to their own projects.”
Episodes will air on a weekly basis starting the second week of June.
