May 2013 – Last year I ripped up 2/3rd of the motor-home’s 1980’s rose colored carpet. Even thou the coach doesn’t have allot of mileage on it, this carpeting was matted down and just collected a ton of dirt throughout the years. With the assistance from my dad we replaced this with laminate hardwood flooring and new carpet/padding for the back half of the coach. WHAT A DIFFERENCE!
As you can imagine, the interior needed an updating from the 80’s, so what better time to do a complete re-color design from the ugly camper style that are still in campers today. Wallpaper borders are so out of style, I can’t tell you LOUD enough and the the ugly interior colors are putride. I’ll go out on a limb and say that if you failed interior design in college you’ll probably end up working for a camper manufacture. I have no idea on the low to medium priced RV’s where they come up with color/design patterns, but to me, its horrible!
Anyways, the hardwood flooring looks outstanding and it almost maintenance free. In addition to the flooring, Tami and I ended up repainting all the walls/ceilings and I re-finished all the cabinets in the whole rig.
The only rose colored carpet left is in the drivers cabin and that won’t be there for long. 🙂
