Has anyone seen all of the "cute" remodel jobs...

There are so many on pinterest and such.

How hard would it be to replace all the flooring, reupholster, and paint all the woodwork on a sound unit??

I am pretty handy, I've painted kitchens, changed furniture, painted a lot...

Here is a place I found
OCRV - Orange County RV and Truck Collision Center - Truck Body Shop, RV Paint, Frame, Fabrication, Fiberglass, Interior, Roof, Glass

Looks like pottery barn threw up in a bunch of motorhomes. Im pretty sure most men would give up camping if they had to sleep in there let alone invite their friends over to check out the rig. To each HER own I guess.

I see a great deal more theme decorated teardrop trailers than conventional trailers/MH's and yes some of them are rather cutesy particularly those owned by single ladies. a friend of mine did "The Green Lantern" with a Coleman Lantern graphic and Coleman pattern quilt etc. Ours has a marine theme with a Compass Rose graphic traditional compass rose pattern quilt and I used marine fixtures (not real obvious). Truth, beauty and contact lenses are in the eye of the beholder. Life is too short not to have fun with it!

We can probably give you a better estimate of time if you describe your intentions for your future RV. I.E.,

Coach, 5th wheel, TT ?
How old an RV?
How big?
Slides ... how many?
What do you have in mind when you say "replace flooring"?

For instance, I have a 1997 HR Endeavor with 1 slide ... I replaced all of the carpet (bedroom, living room, cockpit, stairs) with engineered hardwood. The bath, hallway, kitchen had either existing tile or hardwood and I kept them.

While the unit was in storage (not annoying to anyone and I could work outdoors), I spent about 3 days removing the old carpet and staples and about 7 days installing flooring (including flooring on the slide). This included about 1 hour each day for cleanup and storage of tools, etc.

Overall, the time lapse between starting a partial refurb, and getting to where you are satisfied with everything, is probably 1 year ... with some time off for travel and other things.

It is roughly the same as working on a house except you are working in confined spaces ... think "working inside a closet" and everything needs to fit thru a narrow door.

You can get an idea of effort here:

Trash the sofa ... extend the slide floor

I would love to do this but I don't think DH would like the waiting. He hated getting started on home projects but always loved the results!

Well ... you have until 2015 to make a bunch of decisions. You might like to browse the Monaco Forum. I'm not recommending one brand over another but there are a ton of used Monacos and Holiday Ramblers (similar to Monaco) around and a lot of folks have made modifications.

What is your budget for RV purchase?


You might to look at these also ... lots of ideas and details:

What did you do to your old RV today?

Teardrops are the one style of rv that I think is cool when they do a theme. Maybe its the retro style that lends itself to doing a neat theme. I would love to see pics of the coleman lantern theme.

I don't really hate the white theme but I question the functionality if you are actually traveling. I went to a lot of effort to remove fabrics (carpet, etc) and to eliminate "extra" stuff so I don't have to secure it all while underway.

I was hoping there was a Kegerator hidden somewhere
