New show to feature 4x4 camping off road owners.

I think (hope) one of the cable networks may pick up a TV series we pitched.
It revolves around Off the Grid camping and day trips going off road.
We are Looking or a cross selection of Years and types of SMB's from this forum.
Can be a Quigley, SMB, Van Spec, Quadvan or other type conversion.

The 1st taping is going to highlight the build process of converting a VAN from 2wd to 4WD.
For that we will be filming at a "Vendor" location. Not yet determined.

Beyond that it will be 100% participant driven and not an AD for any particular shop that do conversions.
Each show will feature 4-6 rigs so will be hoping to get about 100 or so to select from.
Hope to do 12 shows with each featuring a different aspect of being "off road"

Then highlight the owner with a mixture of on location taping and other video merged from the Van owner of trips taken and such.

As indicated, we are in the early stages but if you have an interest and like to be featured then simply reply here, email me or PM me so I may be in contact.

This will be a nationwide show so we are going to try and include the 4 corners of our wonderful country so you don't have to be in Los Angeles to participate.

Even though I am partial to SMB's we will be featuring VANs, Class C and B's plus the Ambo crowd.

Let me know if interested………..

Let's do lunch.

U-Joint would be the place to go to see a conversion done, but you know that.

Re: New show to feature 4x4 camping off road owners.

My people are worried about keeping their filming job based on the quality videos done by the twogone group !!

Zeta,
The location for the build shoot will most likely be a place easy for film crew to get to.
One of the shops in the west coast I think will be used. Although nothing is set in stone.

Re: New show to feature 4x4 camping off road owners.

This is awesome!

We've had some TV follow us around at my work before, I generally try to stay away from the camera. But it's always amazing how you forget that they're there.

I think if you followed the group to Baja that it'd make a great story!

Re: New show to feature 4x4 camping off road owners.

Thanks to those who PM'd me and emailed me.

I would have thought a better response even though 20 reply are nice was hoping a real interest.

I know a few other sites i will also reach out to as we will have plenty of people but find the SMB owners to be a best of breed bunch…..
