Decorating

We r looking at buying a used Class A Travel Supreme motorhome an I know I will want to change something's inside for instance, the window treatments, possibly painting, etc. Are there any women out there that have done this? I know it's done a lot on fifth wheels and TT but what about class A? We have owned 3 TT' an 1 fifth wheel an I changed/decorated them but the price for a Class A scares me.

Not really any different on a Class A. We've changed the cabinetry in ours, modified the window treatments, replaced the carpet, installed different tvs, etc. You need only decide whether you care about resale value or not when makiong your choices. Do you decorate as YOU want it, or decorate as others might prefer it (i.e. more "neutral" decor).

Its your house. Do what you want.

Or, you could keep it all beige and tan, on the off chance you want to sell it 10 years from now to someone with no imagination.

We lived in a motorhome for nearly 12 years and in that time the front had four different window treatments and the bedroom had three. We replaced the couch ones, reupholstered the driver, passenger, & easy chairs once, reupholstered the dinette once, changed wall coverings in the entire coach one time, replaced about half of the cabinets with custom ones and probably a few other things. All of the window treatments and the upholstery of the dinette were done by my wife, I did the walls and cabinets and together we added a headboard to the bed that didn't have one when new. Before we ever went on the road we replaced all of the pictures with ours, and changed the draperies for the windshield.

I'm sure that I must have missed something...

Good morning,
We have an 05 Tiffin Allegro (their basic model) which we purchased in 2010, maybe, and we loved it. Our first mod was to cut off the vertical parts of the window valences/cornices. I did provide more openness and room for the dinette seats. We also get rid of those string operated shades with regular roller shades with curved/wavy bottoms. Work great but I wish I paid a little more for better quality shades.
After a few years we replaced carpets with vinyl tiles because the grey carpets were difficult to keep clean. Looks great and much neater.
Once we started doing winters in the RV we got the remodel itch again. I just finished venting the stove and microwave to the outside...... Decided to change the stained kitchen sink to a stainless steel sink which turned into removing the whole counter and replacing it with a pre made counter with back splash from homedepot. That resulted in changing the fold down counter thingie to now match the counter. While the counter was removed decided to change the dinky gooseneck water filter with another "wholehouse" filter under the sink. That turned into building shelves under the sink for more efficient storage space. Then "it was determined" (not by me) that the wallpaper border behind the stove was too "busy" for the new counter. Are you getting what's happening to the new sink project??
Removing the border turned out to be much more difficult than expected which resulted in removing all the wallcovering behind the stove so the "peel and stick" metal backsplash would stick. UGH!!
That's where we are right now..... trying to figure out how to cut the backsplash tiles to fit around the radius of the window. UGH! UGH!
Soooo, that's what might happen if you decide to do "a little" remodeling.
Oh! Almost forgot about the old fashioned top cornices on all the windows.....
yup that's next.
BTW I am not a professional re modeler. But I'd certainly share and info you may find helpful.

I am so grateful for the reply's, especially on those stupid vertical window treatments......those r going to b the first to go. Love granny's rocker . Thanks to all the hubby responses, my hubby is now giving me so slack. Buying the base model an doing ur own upgrades/touches is a great idea something hubby is concerning now since he knows I am gonna do some changes.
