One man’s trash is another man’s treasure, and Flipping Ships on Animal Planet proves just that. The series follows musician Edwin McCain and his “Boats Have Souls” team as they find abandoned boats and restore them for clients into one-of-a-kind vessels.
In this episode, they changed things up. Instead of revamping an old boat they converted a vintage Avion camper into a floating retreat for a couple. It was in pretty rough condition when they first found it, but the exterior was repainted and made to look sleek and brand-new.
But they didn’t only make the outside look good. They threw it on top of a boat and filled the inside with ’50s-inspired decor, retro appliances, and personal touches. Named “The Happy Camper”, the boat also got a new deck on the roof, and cozy seats in the front with gorgeous upholstery.
