Previously, we updated our RV countertops with countertop paint. That didn’t go so well, which I wrote about here. We’re ready to do some more work on our counter. Today it’s about our options, which are limited to those that will be lightweight and not add too much weight to the RV.
Options to Fix RV Countertops
1. Touch Up Paint.
We painted our countertops with Gianni Granite’s Countertop paint. According to a Giani spokesperson, there are some additional steps needed for high-use counters. We’re open to this and it’s worth a try. We’re working out the details and will update soon.
2. Resurface With Sheet Laminate.
This is the most cost-effective option for resurfacing. Here is a how-to video that shows the process.
I did some research on whether you could adhere sheet laminate to an existing countertop. Turns out you can, you just need to make sure to sand the surface well and wipe clean.
3. Replace the Laminate Countertops.
This one is a little more work and requires precise cutting around the cutouts. It is a relatively inexpensive option.
4. Tile Over Existing Countertops.
While this is a beautiful option, it adds more weight and is more work. Plus you’d have to deal with grout getting dirty.
We are still trying to decide what we will do. If I missed an option that is suitable for an RV, I’d love to hear your recommendations!
