Need feedback on coach remodel

We are planning an interior remodel of our "D". New carpetIng and tile flooring throughout. Move front TV into curb side cabinet with power lift. Replace jackbed/couch with new couch with recliners. Remove dinette booth and replace with table and chairs. Replace all bright brass colored cabinet hardware with dark colored hardware. Repaint all bright brass lighting fixtures with darker color. Replace old TracVision with updated satellite antenna with HD capability. And replace patio awning arms with power arms. We are looking for feedback from those out there that may have undertaken these type upgrades and any experiences that will help us with our planning and execution of this project. Thanks for your comments and pictures.

We did the TV cabinet remodel. Try and keep the depth to a minimum, or else whatever you place in front of it will be intruding into the living space. We also replaced our couch with two LaZboy recliners placed directly across from the TV. Replaced all of cabinet hardware too. That turned out to be more expensive than I had imagined. Besides the TV, the best mod we did was a Whirlpool residential fridge.

I have a friend in CA that did this to a coach that he just bought. Him and I have a mutual friend that does garage epoxy floor covering. He decided to do that throughout his coach. It really does look good, and he claims it's a cake walk to keep clean. Now, that very well may not be for everybody, but it's good for us, we go to the dunes and play in the sand ALOT!!!

But, something like that could be very good looking, and keep with any theme or scheme that you decided to do, and still have a classy look also. I like the no carpet idea for keeping it clean, even with an electric sweeper, like we have.

Hi Jim! I guess the biggest upgrades we have done it the TV and the flooring. Below is what we did:

The head-banger is finally GONE!

Another flooring question
(look at post #75)

Hope you projects go well!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Just started on ours ,cover the headboard replaced the mattress and the flower boarder trim. Window valance recoved in bedroom and bathroom. Replacing the dinette with table and chairs. Installed a fireplace. Next the TV and jack knife sofa.
I have already removed rug and replaced with allure. Makes it feel like a new coach.
It's been fun.

We pretty much did most of what you want to do. Put in laminate floors, repainted all the cabinets, and put textured wall paper throughout. Gutted the kitchen and bathroom to put in new toilet, sink, and tile floors. Kitchen got new stove, tile counter tops and a new deep sink. Laminate floors have held up very well. Tile on the floors and counters has also held up good with no grout cracking.

I would suggest you plan on doing the work in stages, unless you are paying someone to do it. Working inside a motorhome seems to take four times longer than doing the same thing in a house. Our total re-do started about eight years ago and is still getting final touches like crown molding.
