I am new to the Site and wanted to introduce myself and our vintage rv. We purchased (new to us) a 1988 27ft. motorhome and we are currently painting and fixing it up. I look forward to sharing our photos as we work thru our remodeling, as well as enjoying looking at your photos and learning from you.
All in all, she was in pretty good shape, the fabrics were in great condition and the previous owners kept all documents, brochures of all applicances and maintenance manuals and the original sales brochure. She sold for $54,000 in her heyday. While she was is good basic shape she also was dated. The vinyl stripes on the outside were really chipped and cracked. The fiberglass shell lost it's lustre. The inside while clean, had dated wall paper, bluebird blue counter tops, with mauve/tan colored fabrics of the late 80's early 90's.
We divided the workload with my husband taking the outside responsibilities and me taking the inside ones.
We developed our plan of attack and each has been moving forward tackling our individual responsibilities. I am and have been taking before and after photos as we work thru our list and I will share them in upcoming posts for those interested.
Here is a sampling of our list of things to do:
Husband: Removing vinyl graphics, painting outside of motorhome, replacing vinyl flooring in kitchen, replacing old carpeting, remove booth - replace with cabinets/island for eating and more kitchen counter space.
Mine: Paint entire inside, refinish all cabinets, replace all hardware, upholster furniture we keep, cover window cornice's with matching fabrics, make all new curtains, help with cabinets/island for eating and create an office space somewhere.
That's us and I look forward to looking around the site now and meeting all of you.
