Live!: Bret Michaels Rock My RV
Bret Michaels is the host of the new Travel Channel show, Rock My RV, a show that follows Michaels around the country as he fixes up RVs for a number of people. From business men with great ideas for the future to families who are down on their luck, Michaels help everyone.
It may seem that a musician is fixing up RVs, but Michaels said RVs are close to his heart. His entire childhood was spent camping with his family, driving state to state in the family RV. He said his family loved the open road and it is something that he has continued to love as he has grown older. He also said he is an in RV nine months out of the year so he knows what needs to be an RV and what doesn’t.
“I am one of the first musicians to take an RV to Europe and Australia,” said Michaels, explaining other musicians stay in hotels but he wanted to see the open road of those countries as well.
Kelly Ripa seemed a bit jealous of Michaels’ lifestyle saying it has been her dream to travel across the country in an RV since she was a little girl.
