  1. Thank you for all of this great information and helpful tips! Your camper looks lovely 🙂 Quick question: what did you do to update the counter top? I can’t quite tell from the before and after pictures… did you just paint it as well? Or did you replace the counter entirely?

    1. Hi Nicole, thank you. I painted the countertop with the same paint as the cabinets (Milk Paint). I added 3 coats of top coat from General Finishes. It has been a couple of years since I did this and I had no issues at all with chipping.
      Hope this helps. Links are in the article if you need them.

  2. Hi your remodel looks Great!! We just got a 1965 camper & will be gutting & painting it. What do I use to paint a stove, fridge & table? Any suggestions would be very helpful and appreciated.
    Thank you!

    1. Hi Rose, thank you. I would use Appliance spray by Rust-oleum. Works really well. Just be careful with the paint running when you spray a fridge. If you have to do larger sections, get the roll-on paint for Appliances. Hope this helps.

  3. Love what you did. We have a carpeted ceiling…any ideas how to make it look fresh and new? It is old and showing the glue bleeding through. It is not water damage. I would appreciate any help.
    Thank you

    1. Hi Sari, thank you.
      Well, there are a couple of options. Either you remove the carpet and hopefully, you will get the glue off the ceiling or use white paint and paint over it. Maybe get a small can of spray paint first and see how it looks. There is also textile paint available, but much more expensive. Chalk paint could be another option to use. You probably have to go over the glue bleeding a couple of times to get it all covered. But as I said, removing is the cleanest version. Hope this helped. See you, Conny

  4. As a full-time RVer I hear of people doing remodels like this! The breakdown and pictures really help me visualize what it is like to get an RV back in shape. I have also wondered how much it impacts the value – either positive or negative – when you get ready for sale. Do you have any stats on that?

    1. Hi Tawna, yes often it is hard to visualize how it will look afterwards. I have no stats on resale, but it all depends whom you are selling it to, how they appreciate an update. If you do a good job, the resale goes up.
      Thank you for your comment.

  5. What a great trailer, it’s amazing what a little paint and a new floor will do to transform the look of a trailer. It looks so fresh and bright! Great job, pinned it!

  6. Oh my goodness! What a difference! I love how the flooring made it look bigger and those blue tiles behind the stove!!! Gorgeous. Silly question. Where did you get that cutting board with the owl on it? It ‘s adorable.

  7. These are all great ideas!
    I have a travel trailer and sometimes just a few small changes can make a world of difference. My camper is wood tone however I like it that way but it needed some color so I added pictures and accessories to make it brighter. All these ideas are good and I always wondered what kind of paint to use if I ever wanted to paint the camper.

    1. Hi Kathy, yes sometimes cool updates can be done with pillows, wall art or some colorful accessories. Our camper was just very dated and dark, so it needed a lot of attention. But painting is actually very easy. Thank you.
