Info on 5th Whl Remodels. please

We're new owners of a 1987 Bigfoot 20' Fifth wheel (former Casita owners for nine years). We anticipate full-timing in it for a few years. However, prior to selling the stix & brix, we want to remodel this beauty - which seem to have good bones and working systems. Both DH and I feel up to the majority of the daunting tasks that will come of this remodel (remuddle??) adventure. Anyone know of a fifth wheel remodel web-site or group? Thanks for your assistance.

Thanx for your response. I'm not quite sure what we will do...but looking for ideas. Some of the objectives on our Wish List include separate "work/activity" spaces for each of us (sewing & modeling) that can also be converted into office space, more convenient placement of microwave (it's in an upper cabinet and I'm a short gal), the dark interior calls for lighter cabinets, more comfy & compact dining area, larger refrig (maybe??), place for the cat's litter box, if possible change out the windows for double paned ones, more storage in basement???.
We can't afford to contract this out so we're looking for other ideas, will develop a floorplan, figure out all the systems wiring,plumbing etc and get started.

Hi and welcome to the forum. I've moved your thread from the hybrid forum to here where you'll get far more views.

Best of luck to you both.
