Season 4, Episode 2
Bigger and Badder
Marathon Coach's latest project is an extremely high profile, fully customized, luxury RV for an undisclosed client. With their three children at the forefront of their design schematic, the clients want a family-friendly coach that mirrors the comforts and accouterments of their home including matching the custom, exotic hardwood flooring and interior décor. The exterior of the coach will feature a custom paint scheme and outdoor entertainment system, complete with TV, grill and refrigerator. One of the major challenges to overcome is designing triple bunk beds to accommodate their children. The bunk system will be automated-allowing all three beds to move down and stack-leaving the upper portion of the space available to double as a wardrobe. The AV system will be state of the art, including a Kaleidoscope and Crestron hub, designed to offer Blu-ray movies on demand from anywhere in the coach. From start to finish, this project will stretch Marathon to its limits-fully customizing every inch of space and creating a one-off luxury palace on wheels. As the deadline looms, the team struggles to achieve perfection.
From the Marathon shop we head out the Moab, Utah where Frank and Jenny Gannett are taking their brand new RV on a little extreme, off-road adventure. They love their ATVs and Jeeps but want their home-on-the-road to feel as luxurious and well appointed as a 5 star hotel. They found it...with their custom, 45-foot iH-45 Foretravel.
Then we'll head over to the east coast to meet with Chuck "Cobra" Hebing as he preps his cut-and-stretched, personal racing companion, RV. This massive Peterbuilt chassis is the ultimate race rig; able to tow a 35' long trailer and comfortably accommodate Chuck and his daughter as they travel from track to track. Apart from its menacing appearance, the coach comes complete with drawers that look like tool chests, cobra themed upholstery and flame throwing exhaust...among a list of other custom features.
Over in Alabama, at the Heritage Motor Resort, we'll check in with Bryan and Lynn Goodfleisch and tour their $1.3 million dollar, opulent Foretravel. From the classy custom interior touches, including hand-laid tiles and a beautiful walk-in closet to the exterior's custom paint and outdoor entertainment center-the Goodfleisch family is prepared to enjoy their time on the road, couched in the lap of luxury.
In Alaska, Bill Guernsey takes us deep into the wilderness with his incredible Atomic camper. After a severe plane crash, Bill turned tragedy into triumph, using his recovery as an opportunity to build his dream camper: completely custom and hand-built, it is shaped like a cartoon-inspired, atomic bomb. Bill takes the Atomic Camper for a drive through scenic Alaska and sets up at one of his favorite spots, where he shows off his one-of-a-kind creation in all of its glory.
And finally, we'll head out to Arizona to tour one of the toughest and most intimidating RVs we've ever seen. Duane and Susan Barnett are on their way to Bike Week-and they're doing it in style with their fully custom Renegade Ikon mansion on wheels.
