" RP61, Canadian Maple).
Flat Rock Tile and Stone
in Claremont, NH, coordinated the installation of the flooring and the new carpet. Both look fabulous.
In addition, I installed a new washer-dryer, a new mattress and new driver and passenger seats.
It was a lot of money.
We still look. What's with that?
But, all signs are we'll stick with this coach until we get out of RVing entirely.
Thanks for sharing your remodel story! Itís a pricey endeavor to be sure.
Several ways to look at (rationalize) the cost.
The cost is less than the sales tax on a new MADP. 😁
The premium used units are commanding make the remodel cost seem more reasonable.
To purchase what we wanted would be $200/250K and still have the same exposure to costly chassis/body repairs as we have with our 04. Plus 6% sales tax on the purchase.
The depreciation on a 2012/2015 unit over 3 years will be at or exceed the remodel cost.
Anyway thatís how we got to the decision.
Our eyes are wide open, this remodel doesnít increase the value of our rig in anyway.
It will have a positive impact on our comfort and enjoyment of the coach.
We will probably keep looking too! Crazy.
Safe travels to you and yours!
