Show Off Your RV!

Post by Travel2011 » Wed Jul 27, 2011 9:49 am

Hello,
I'm a TV producer looking for people who have "tricked out" RV's they are taking to Burning Man in August. If you'd like to show off your hard work, email me as soon as possible at durkin@trueentertainment.net - along with a photo of your RV.

Anyone who has a tricked out RV is going to leave it home and not bring it to the harsh, dusty, windy, hot desert to be destroyed at Burning Man. What they WILL bring is a 25 year old beaten to shit Winnebago, that they really don't care about.
I hope you find this information helpful!

Respectfully,

So Yggy, are you bring that marvelous contraption this year, or what? I thought you said you weren't, in some other thread.

HA!! That is just cool. I bet the shower has plenty of pressure. Do you have the monitor piped into the plumbing of the camper?

I could picture doing that. (He found steps for it though; posted a pic in another forum.)

It is my plan, Savannah. I'm hoping to finish wiring and such in the next week or so........

haha, yeah, If I plumbed it in, I could have 300 psi in the shower/sandblaster.

Well, if you don't use the on-board tank for your drinking/shower water, just think of how much gray-water or black-water it can hold! :shock:

YGMIR That green Firetruck Camper is spectacular. What a glorious car. I can only begin to imagine all the different liquids you could shoot with such enormous pressure. Though, I guess that is under the assumption that it has a reservoir and pump. Either way, snap and crackle that's legit.

People do bring good RVs out there, even classic ones.

My neighbors last time were selling to buy a newer model, and the one they had was quite nice.
I've seen stretched VW campers out there.
Mirror polished antique airstreams and even rarer types.

There are entire camps for airstreams, Burnstream Courts, I think?

I'm pretty confident that rvs out there range up to the higher end, with the $1-1.5 million buses out there.

I tipped a guy off to burning man that I'm pretty sure has shown up by now.
He was already too burnie for the show anyway.
He was just picking up a new bus and trailer, both custom made to max out the legal dimensions to the inch.
He had a double deck garage in the back, with a tuned porsche truck and a merc SLK, also hopped up.
Stunt sky diver and driver.

You should talk to Steve and Juicy in San Francisco.
They have a vintage car, Billy, and a matching era trailer.
They have brought both out to the playa before.
Extremely surreal seeing those there.

If you go out and document interesting RVs, I hope you take more than one crew.

Wow, dude, that stripe is awesome. 8)

Looks like you have room for all kinds of fun in the center there, too, wow... need a string of solar xmas lights for the edge of that overhang? I think I can spare some; the blue ones I got are pretty bright.

Bwahahahahahaha, fun fun fun... :lol:
