Hi everyone

Hello :-)

I have a 1997 Winnebago Brave 31RQ. It’s the Chevrolet 454 model with almost all the factory upgrade options, plus some additional after-market upgrades. It has only 49,000 original miles, new transmission, and new power steering.

I am in the process of remodeling the inside. So far, I have put oak laminate flooring in the kitchen and hallway. I have also painted the ugly fake wood panel refrigerator with black appliance paint. I removed the small chair in the living room area, as well as taken out the kitchen table and bench seats.

The walls and cabinets are being painted. I am replacing the window blinds, removing the valances, and putting in curtains. I have put peel and stick tile in the kitchen, as a backsplash, and on he wall adjacent to the left side of the stove. The couch/bed is getting reupholstered. I have also replaced the toilet, and redone the bathroom sink and countertop. Oh…and I removed the dinosaur CRT tv and turned the space into a storage cabinet.

It is too messy right now to show pictures of everything, but here are some pictures of the outside, some “before” and “in-process” pictures of the inside.

I look forward to getting advice from other RV owners.
