I agree that the "collectors" and their stuff are the only interesting part of the show. I think people would watch even if they just went to visit and interact with these interesting people.

There is no need for them to pretend that they are "pickers". Frank is particularly obnoxious when he tries talk people into selling and then low-balls them.

use the same curtain and sign in each one, to make them all look the same.
They may rent them but it isn't the same sign the sign on the truck is vinyl applied directly to the paint it isn't magnetic because it is the same white as the truck makes me think it isn't a digital print but it could be also

Its interesting watching this show overseas . I enjoy watching the collections but culturally struggle with Mike and Frank. American reality shows are very different from the local shows we get over here. Many of us would describe the show as " over the top" Mike and Frank seem like they have taken a shot of Meth before filming-They are just so hyped . Every statement they make seems to me to be overly dramatic -like they are giving us the 3 minute warning. I find it exhausting just listening to them ! I guess we are just a little more laid back here in paradise -Karl

well Todd, buddy nearby sold trucks and one day recd a call from the pickers staff...........

wtd to rent his truck for a week and apply their magic to it. he said no, not in the one week rental business. he had a sprinter on the lot at the time.
dont know about the signage, but doubt it was hand painted.
