RV Education 101 completes vintage restorations

HARRELLS, N.C. — A few years ago, RV Education 101, an RV training video and information company, produced a 17-episode Internet video series titled Mark’s RV Garage. The video series featured a ground-up restoration project on a vintage 1967 travel trailer.

“One of my passions is restoring classic automobiles so I thought it would be really cool to restore a time period correct classic truck to tow our vintage 1967 Yellowstone travel trailer,” said co-owner Mark Polk. “After the travel trailer project was finished, I thought it was only fitting to find and restore a time period correct classic truck to tow the vintage trailer.”

More than two years later, Polk finished another ground-up restoration project on a 1971 Dodge Power Wagon. Rather than producing a video series on the classic truck restoration, Polk documented the entire process on one of his blogs, which can be found at

Longtime RV Education 101 friend and business associate, Rich Elliott, sales and marketing director for Progress Manufacturing, appreciated the truck and trailer restoration projects.

“We loved watching the restoration of the Yellowstone trailer and following the Dodge Power Wagon restoration,” said Eliott. “We love the history these projects represent and appreciate the hard work that went into them.  We were excited to see Mark using an Equal-i-zer hitch to tow the vintage trailer. The Equal-i-zer Sway Control Hitch has a 70-year history and is the ideal hitch for pulling this classic combination.”

With the restoration projects complete, Polk’s plan is to take the vintage trailer and classic truck combination to some classic car and RV shows in the future.
