Lightbulb About To Start A Refurb. Hints or Ideas?

We just purchased a 2000 Jayco Eagle 313H Class C. It has 34,000 miles and seems to be in pretty good shape.

We want to update/upgrade several things.
-Flooring throughout
-Re-upholster throughout (sofa, dinette, curtains, valances, over-cab mattress)
-New counters/dinette table
-Replace old TVs with larger flatscreens
-New toilet...low profile on platform
-Maybe new kitchen sink
-Replace old in-dash CD player with new double-din cd/nav unit

Of course we want to spend as little as possible(up to $2,500) to make these changes. What are your experiences with these projects and how can we save money? Doing our own labor is key, I know. Any other hints? Thanks!

We replaced the countertop and tabletop in our former Class A and it turned out beautiful. My husband did all of the measuring and we went directly to the fabricator to have the countertop cut and the edges finished thus cutting out the middle man. The only thing my husband had to do is cut out the sink and the stove. One of the main reasons that we updated the surfaces was to allow more counter space by eliminating the double sink and installing a deep bar sink of which provided me another 12 inches of much needed workspace. The other reason was to give the coach a more modern look thus we also decided to do the dinette. It looked beautiful... just like it came out of the showroom. If I can find a photo I will update the thread.

Nice! Thanks for the tip. I had just assumed we would get the new counter and new sink and have it be the same set up as before. If the plumbing isnt too difficult to move, I'd like to move the sink(smaller) down to the corner and be able to use more counter space.

When my husband cut out for the stove he repurposed the cut and made me a custom stove cover that was easily removable when using the burners. Again more counter space....

Here is a picture of the TV replacement... He customized the bottom and inserted a DVD player. He did a great job of matching the original wood. We also installed new vinyl and carpeting. Not to brag ... but I have a wonderful and talented husband. FYI... we had this unit for one year and sold it for 12K more than we paid for it!!! All cosmetic and a little elbow grease. Making around a 10K profit.
