Aren’t Fridays Supposed to Be Happy?

Oct 3rd, 2014 –  Well this past Friday was a sad/happy day for us.   Yep, we sold our Shasta 27ft “Class C” to a young family in that lives in New York.  It was a tough decision but we just didn’t use it this year. It did need to have a slight oil leak fixed, which I think was replacing the head gaskets.  The tires where on the border of 7 years old; which is a huge debate on the Internet, haha. And we kept paying to have it parked in storage.  Other than that, it was very solid motorhome for a 1987 with only 47k miles on it. SOLDJim put so much work into the interior of the cab.  When the couple and their kids came and got it last Friday, they couldn’t believe the work done to it or how the colors all match throughout the rig.  THEY LOVED IT!

Looking forward, we’ll be saving our money for another one.   I think we want to get a “Class A” bus this time.  Not sure if we want gas or diesel power plant, but something that can tow a car or our motorcycles.  Till then, we’ll just keep hunting for the right rig!  🙂  We’ll MISS you Mr. SHASTA!!!

Improvements the Rig

The Roadmaster sticker on the hood was remade, the flat screen with stereo and subwoofer added, to the couch and kitchen completely redone.

OLD vs. NEW

 

Microwave in RV

Above you can see the progress of change from the old confection oven that lived in this space (that was behind a large door) with a new updated insert SS microwave.  I created a cross bar for the microwave so it had a clean tight fit.  In doing so, I created a space to bring in color or what I have there now, dry flower arrangement.  It adds that “homey” feel to the coach I was looking for and a piece of the outdoors to the kitchen.

The last photo (on the right) you see the ceiling/walls have been painted.  The cabinets have been re-finished and the tile backsplash is added.  What you can’t see is the refinished countertops (black), but I’ll post this in the future.

Motorhome’s New Floor

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.  🙂
