My fifth wheel remodel!

So I remodeled my 81 motorhome just to turn around and trade it for my 85 Jayco fifth wheel which also needs redone. Haha so its taken on some water in the past so all of the walls are warped and bowed. Ive straightened them and am in the middle of recovering them. Tore out the carpet and out new tile in. Recovered the cushions, fixed the roof leaks and other normal 30 yr old problems... more pics to come!

Thanks all, I picked up another sheet of paneling and another piece of floor trim. Should be finished with the floor and walls this weekend. Tomorrow is a 90% chance of rain so well see if the roof repairs are fixed!
