Upgrading My Motorhome

Looking to upgrade my 2001 National TradeWinds. I want the factory decals removed and replaced with paint. I'm wanting to replace or reupholster the driver seat and the co-pilot seat. Replace the hide-a-bed with a jackknife sofa, redo or replace the dinette booth and perhaps some other things like window valances and window shades.

So, where is a good place somewhat close to the Salt Lake City area that does great work and I'll still have my arms and legs left after I pay??

An ambitious set of projects to be sure.
Are you planning on keeping the coach for a long time ?
I'd say , have all the mechanicals checked out prior to starting any expensive modifications.

Don't know of anyone in the Salt Lake area, but there's quite a few in the Phoenix area.

When I said close to the Salt Lake City area I may have misled where I'm willing to have her upgraded. I'm looking for places that do good, reasonable work that I could travel to. One on my list is Countryside Interiors in Oregon. We do winter in Arizona, so that could also work out. What I'm looking for is websites for places that do the work so I can look them over. Would also consider Amish area.

The hide a bed takes up too much room when extended and is not comfortable at all. Hmmmmmmmmmmm On second thought an uncomfortable bed might avoid extended stays. Just kidding. With a jackknife we might find one with drawers.

Never met a jackknife that didn't poke you all night. A blowup air mattress is much more comfortable....IMHO<
