Two local engineers will be featured on national television for their creation of an RV out of a big rig.

The RV not only includes a bathroom, bedroom, chairs and tables, but the owner’s sports car can also fit inside the undercarriage of the truck.

Bruce Rayner, formerly of the Grass Valley Group, and specialized engineer Roger Stevens worked together for two years to build the RV, which will be featured Monday on “Destination America,” on a channel owned by Discovery, in an episode titled “Episode 2: Epic RVs.”

The show can be watched at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. in Grass Valley on Direct TV Channel 286, Comcast Channel 201, Suddenlink 206 and Dish 194.

“He had this old big rig and wanted to do something with it,” said Stevens’ wife, Heather Macdonald, owner of Sierra Gold Production and Gold Country TV.

“It’s really interesting with that underground little garage. That really took a lot of work to do that.”
