RV restorations range from simple to complex jobs. Here are some ideas.
The extent of your remodeling depends on you – and your budget.
With that in mind, let’s look at some of your possible options that can either refresh the look of your RV…or give your motorhome a makeover.
1) Get a new captain’s chair. Comfort is at a premium when you’re literally in the driver’s seat. After all, you may be spending a lot of time in this position. A chair that feels comfy, offers ergonomic support and comes equipped with the latest conveniences will make your trips seem shorter, and keep you refreshed longer.
2) Install the latest gadgets. Items such as a GPS navigation system, satellite TV system, flat-panel TV, satellite radio and a quality sound system can make life on the road more enjoyable.
3) Do a little window dressing. New curtains or shades can make a surprising difference in the appearance and comfort of your motorhome.
4) Spruce up your wall coverings with fresh colors and patterns that reflect your style and tastes.
5) Buy better, larger mirrors. Your RV isn’t exactly a compact car. And it’s tough to see the space around your vehicle. Larger mirrors can make it easier – and safer – to maneuver.
6) Upgrade your furniture by reupholstering it. Make every seat in your motorhome a plush spot to relax.
7) Spring for new beds. Living on the road can be tiring. Make sure you’re getting the best sleep possible.
8) Spice up your motorhome with new carpeting. When you pull up your current rug, look for signs of floor damage and correct any problems before installing your new floor covering.
9) Remove dated linoleum, cabinets, countertops and tile. Replace them with something more contemporary, charming and practical.
10) Toss out that dingy sink. Put in a sleek one with new fixtures. And don’t forget to check your plumbing while you’re at it.
11) Invest in new appliances, such as a microwave, oven, refrigerator and toaster to make meal preparations easier and faster.
12) Install a new awning to boost outdoor protection from the elements.
Be sure your RV restorations address potential problem areas, too, such as water tanks, hoses, the heating/cooling system, and any exterior/interior cracks, leaks, scratches or holes.
