Great Renovations !!!! I bought my Surfside last year and this winter my wife found some excellent material to re-cover all of our cushions with. She too also wants to paint the cupboards white.

I also have plans of taking out the furnace as the stove alone or a plug in ceramic heater will surely keep us warm on cool nights.

Great stuff !!!

That's exactly what we used when the temperature dropped on our trip out east, a wee little ceramic heater. WE've never used the stove to heat it up(afraid of causing fire)

We turn it on for about 10-15 min before we go to bed just to take the chill out of the trailer. We've never slept with it on all night(i'm afraid it might cause a fire)plus my husband is like my own personal heater. In the morning we turn it back on for 15 mins, while the kettle boils for coffe and tea.

I also bring along a hot water bottle, which i've never had to use. We have never camped in below freezing weather so it's good enough for us. Also we have fleece sheets which we bought at Costco a few seasons ago, and they're absolutely fantastic. We love them. When we would camp in our tent, we would always have the "dewy" damp feeling in the morning, i guess from the condensation, but the fleece sheets don't hold any moisture.

I'm glad you did, too!

Can you tell us what kind of paint you used? It looks like it provides great coverage and a nice finish. The brightness is great - really updates the look.

Well we used our leftover trim paint that we had used on our baseboards and mouldings in our house. Not sure exactly what kind it is. I'll have to ask my husband.
We really like how bright it is now. It was soo dark before.

Jaclyn,

That's the nice thing about decorating one of these units. You really don't need to hit the pocketbook too hard - and a great use for all those leftovers!

Well I just found this thread from a few years ago, and just recently we ripped out the carpet and my hubby put down some laminate that we received for free. We figured even if it gets damaged with some water, we can always switch back to carpet(hubby installs it, and comes across several scraps large enough to do it)

I will try to post some pic's soon.
