Jaclyn,

Another member had a similar problem recently... Maybe reading from that post will help you through it.

Good luck!

Jeanne

So here are some during.....floors seem ok. We did more cosmetic stuff.
WE painted all wood white, removed icebox(replaced with elec fridge from walmart) Removed furnace(made space into another cupboard- had exact door size needed from space under front bunk- now space under bunk doesn't have a door) Changed all 12v light fixtures, and beside 12v's changed elec light fixtures too. Changed all hinges, and outlets. Added door knobs( could never find the groove to open the doors, and we had leftover ones from our kitchen reno at our house) Changed water tap to a reverse osmosis tap as the other one was broken. WE don't have a fresh water tank in our trailer, but we do have that tap too, so we just left it. We also had made all new cushions as the old ones were completely flat, we slept on them for one weekend and we may as well have been sleeping on the kitchen table(plus the thought of sleeping on 30 yr old cushions full of someone elses sweet just didn't sit right with me) WE also put down new carpet(my husband works with carpet and it was leftover.....i know the colour isn't the best but it looks good, and we can replace it every yr if we want to, plus we got one of those bamboo rugs to put ontop of the carpet, which we just shake off outside...it works for us) Husband also made a custom cutting board for over the stove, as we already had a camping stove. And we prefer to cook outside, and it adds more counter space, as we don't use our kitchen table, we keep it down as a bed.

Jaclyn W,
Your renovation job came out nice and bright. At this rate, you won't be customers for a new one for many years.
Enjoy the many camping trips to come!

Kurt & Ann K.

It looks great. I like the white cabinets (wouldn't work for me, with the corgis, but sure looks nice!) How did you do the cushions? (New foam, did you sew covers?)

Hey Bobbie, we replaced all foam with a much thicker type(we like a firm mattress) we picked thickness so that back cushions wouldn't interfere with the windows when the cushions are set up as table and we found the fabric on clearance. I only sewed the curtains, straight lines. We actually had a guy to the cushions for us. I didn't want to take the chance of wasting anything. so we splurged and had them done professionally(worth it).
