Keeping her vintage

We're going to update her but stay with the original them. And, we're not going to have to replace too much. We do plan to update some things and she'll have some modern touches, but we both love all things old - prefer a good quality antique over something new made out of press-board, etc. We have a massive amount of original Tupperware - much of it from the 70's - that we inherited from her mother. We're having fun finding things that will be both useful and look great. We'll recover the couches but I adore the blue chair and she just needs to be cleaned. None of the appliances need to be replaced. But there will be no polyester anywhere! LOL

Actually, why not two fold out couch beds? The only time you need the beds is for sleeping. With space at a premium it makes good RV sense to have your furniture serve multiple purposes.

Just an example... I know some people don't like to paint over wood but here are before and after pics of my interior. I left the darker look in rear bedroom area.

But for the most part, you didn't paint over wood. The "wood" walls are just printed vinyl laminated to the wall panels.

I'm not anti-wood. I'm against ugly wood and ugly printed fake wood. Con-Tact paper used to really popular.
