Anyone have one of these motor homes that they would like to share some pictures. My wife and I have had a 1983 HR Imperial 33 for almost a year now and have started a light updating of the interior. Just like to see what other people did to theirs.

Not ready to post photos yet, still working, but have made several changes to my 88/89 Imperial. Took out the old icemaker and replaced it with a small portable on a sliding shelf; took out the Dometic fridge and replaced it with an Avanti household model that fit the whole pretty well. Trimming aroud the fridge now. Removed the front tv and replaced it with a small cabinet with rack on the out side of the door for cell phone, etc. and a drawer on the inside. Painted the whole interior, placing tile backsplash in kitchen. Thinking about laminate floor but not sure I want to do that yet. Built a small nightstand for the br. Tomorrow I am starting a small bookshelf for the bedroom that will attach to the wardrobe/closet.
Photos when it's done and I'm getting close to finishing.

We started with a great shape interior. We covered the couch with new fabric and had the 2 lounge chairs professionally done. We have painted most of the wood paneling and leaving the cabinets alone. All the appliances work. I am working on changing out the woven wood shades for metal miniblinds as my finances allow. My wife has made cornice boards for the windows. We are staying with the old orange-ish carpet until it is in bad shape. Was thinking that the ice maker is kinda pointless to have for dry camping, maybe i will replace that with something else.
I also have a thread going in the Vintage section that has photos of my in laws 1986 Itasca Windcruiser. We are helping remodel it and I have posted lots of photos of the kitchen and bathroom remodel in that thread. The bathroom is done, but I still have a couple more weeks of work to do on the kitchen and living area.
I hope it gives you some ideas, I know that it helped us tremendously by looking at other motorhomes to get ideas for ours.
