Out with the old. In with the new.



He sure looked nice from the outside. The inside, while in good great condition, was not exactly to my taste. For whatever reason, the entire RV/Camper market seems to appeal to an aesthetically challenged demographic. I wanted to make the interior bright and modern. That meant I had to customize the interior space to my liking because even on the high end of the market, all RVs seem to be designed by someone stuck in the 90’s.

Below is an itemized list of all tasks completed. I will link to resources and provide associated prices and labor hours, to my best estimation.

*Reupholstering the dinette was perhaps the most challenging part of the process. It took the longest and required the most skill along with a sewing machine. You must determine for yourself which is worth more, the time or the money it would have taken to have these professionally done. I was quoted two very different and very high prices. $1400 from one company and $800 from another. For 4 cushions, I just couldn’t justify spending that, since I (sort of) know how to sew.

**Sanding, priming and painting the cabinets was another huge undertaking for one person with little experience. Because the cabinets frames were laminated pine, it made the prep work very difficult (sanding down shiny paper and getting it smooth was quite the job).

I tried tracking my progress the best I could but stopping to take a photo when in the zone is not really my thing. I’ll post links to photos and descriptions of each project below. If you have any specific questions, shoot me a comment and I will do my best to answer it. I know how helpful it was for me to have advice and tutorials in the process.
