Our New Rig – The Before

Well, we did it!  We bought a used camper this past weekend, a 1996 Winnebago Adventurer.  It’s smaller, yes.  But cute and it comes with lots of potentials. We’re gearing up to be in full renovation mode very soon.

I love DIYs and can’t wait to get started!

We have lots of great ideas swimming around in our heads, but there are several projects we’re set on tackling quickly so we can be living full-time in the camper soon.

Here is the list of our immediate projects:

I also have a dream list, after the majors are complete…

  • Resurface the Exterior Paint
  • Backsplash in Kitchen
  • Install Tankless Water Heater
  • Replace Shower with Tub
  • Replace Sinks
  • Tile Counters
  • Update Light Fixtures
  • Curtains
  • Kick Plate for Central Vac System

I could add a few more to my dream.  The love of my life may just lack enthusiasm over my vision for the camper. A girl can dream though.

Here are some pictures of the RV as we bought it. I forgot to take pictures of the outside and will do so soon.

Loads of pictures because I want evidence of how it looked before we transformed it.














There you have it, folks. Did I miss an area we should update?

2013 Forest River 5th Wheel Modifications

When we sold our 2013 Forest River 365 SAQ , we sold it to friends. It was the perfect bunk house for their 4 girls.

Our friends did a few simple modifications to the 5th wheel that made such a difference!  Modifications that I’m kicking myself over not doing while we lived in there.
