If your old RV seems outdated it probably is. In the past you might have thought about trading up for a newer model with a contemporary color scheme. In this economic climate that may not be possible, so why not do some remodeling and redecorating?
Looking for a great deal on a used RV but aren't having any luck finding the color scheme you want? Why not purchase the great deal and use the extra money you save and decorate it how you want?
Motorhomes, 5th wheels and travel trailers are not much different than a stick house when it comes to remodeling and redecorating.
Dale and Ute Ford from Lake Forrest, California used a little creativity to redecorate their motorhome. Ute decided to redo the color scheme. She started by finding some upholstery material she liked for a few of the window boxes. The boxes easily come off the wall by removing four screws. She removed the top fascia board from the window box and stripped off the old fabric. She replaced the old fabric with the new using a staple gun to hold it in place. She put it all back together and remounted it on the wall. She removed the day/night shade pull down buttons and painted them to match the new window box color.
Next she sewed slip covers for the dinette chairs. These are easily removable for dry cleaning. She added coordinated place settings and made a dramatic change to the dining area.She transformed the bathroom by adding an exterior curtain in front of the shower. She simply ran a curtain rod across the top in front of the shower and installed her new curtain. Amazing what a little fabric and some creative thinking can do to transform the look of an RV.
