trailer road ftEarlier this year video producer Mark Polk, of RV Education 101, decided to produce an online RV series, titled “Mark’s RV Garage.”  Polk explained the goal of the show was to help educate and entertain RV consumers and RV enthusiasts. When considering a feature segment for the new RV series Polk decided to tackle a vintage trailer restoration project. Little did he know at the time the scope the restoration project would entail. 

Unforeseen damage, below the surface of the exterior metal, would result in dismantling the project trailer down to the bare frame and rebuilding it from the ground up. Adding to the complexity of an already daunting challenge Polk’s plans included upgrading the old trailer with modern day RV equipment and amenities.

As season one of the new RV series progressed each step of the vintage restoration project was captured along the way. What initially began as a 10 episode season evolved into 17 episodes, culminating in the season finale where the finished product was revealed to viewers for the first time.

When asked to recap season one of “Mark’s RV Garage” Polk responded, “I think anybody who likes RVs, or is thinking an RV might be in their future would not only enjoy watching the vintage restoration project unfold, but could learn a great deal from the series too.

Happy RV Learning,

    I really enjoyed this series of programs. In addition to showing how far this medium has advanced, RV Garage was entertaining and helpful. I am anxiously awaiting season 2.

    Loved every series of your show. Just couldn’t wait until the next one was avail.

  3. Craig Powell on October 10th, 2011 5:19 pm

    Great series like mentioned above can not wait for season 2. I learned a lot from watching Mark rebuild the old Yellowstone.

  4. Ron Bachem on October 10th, 2011 6:49 pm

    Outstanding feature Mr. Polk, and an outstanding job on the restoration.

    Mark I really enjoyed the series on the vintage restoration. Am looking forward to something similar in the future. Keep up the good work informing us about RV’s. I have been RVing for about 23 years now

    Enjoyed every episode, I have added some of the products that you showed on my own TT.

    Great Job on the Old Yellowstone Mark, can’t wait to see what the next project will bring us, the show is most enjoyable and entertaining.

  9. Rich D. on October 13th, 2011 7:40 am

    Great job Mark! I enjoyed every episode and look forward to future shows. While my interests tend more toward motorhomes and converted buses, the Yellowstone series was both informative and entertaining. How about an interior upgrade to a motorhome next time? Do I see a TV series in the future?

  10. GaryM on October 18th, 2011 6:06 pm

    Excellent job on the Old Yellowstone. Wouldn’t mind one episode that would show us where and how you use the remodeled trailer. Your work did encourage me to replace the front jacks on my 5th wheel. Really enjoyed the series.

    I echo what the others had said in their comments – I enjoyed the knowledge, the skill and the explanation of the different aspects of the restoration. The involvement of the whole family was great – looking forward to what season 2 has in store.

  12. steve M on November 18th, 2011 10:33 am

    Hi Mark, this is fantastic what you have put together. My father has 30yrs experience rving and I have just sent him the link to your videos.

    Wondering how did you get started on filming your restoration. Also can we look forward to more videos on new projects in the future? Are your videos on dvd as well?

    Hope to hear back, I enjoyed watching these videos as I too hope to someday have an RV myself, though looking into possibly buying a used one and fixing it up just as you have done. Great job look forward to seeing more.

    We did our own “custom” job it was lots of work, these guys make it look easy, of course our work is no where near as awesome as theirs but it’s our piece of luxury I suppose. Luckily we found a good place that could custom make the products we needed.Id’ highly recommend ALL-Rite if any of y’all are in need of parts, custom or standard, for your RV”s. I’m sure y’all probably already know about them but I’m all about positive word of mouth so thought id throw it out there!!
