RV renovation guide

RV Renovation

So you’ve got an old camper that needs a makeover but you’re a little nervous to dive in? I was too! But I decided to go for it and so should you. Follow along on my RV renovation project as I complete a camper remodel inside and out. From RV roof repair to a complete interior remodel. My in depth guide will show you every RV repair that I complete and give you tips and tricks on how to pull it off yourself.

Each post includes a tools & materials list, an index to get you to the steps you need quickly, plus tons of photos and a HEADS UP when there’s something to watch out for! What are you waiting for? Let’s get to it!

WARNING: My project has stalled out since the COVID-19 pandemic began and I’ve been scrambling to create a new source of income (primarily my new clothing brand Truly Wild). So please excuse the massive gap in this project. I hope to get back to it spring of 2021.

About Me and My Camper

I bought a 1993 Fleetwood Jamboree Searcher for $5000. It had only 55,000 miles and all the appliances worked and I loved the layout. The catch? Water damage! I’ve never worked on an RV before and I have to admit, I was scared. I’ve done a lot of house remodeling and I was still scared. That’s because this is all new to me and I have no idea what to expect. Hopefully, if you’re considering doing this yourself, you can follow along on my RV renovation project and get the courage you need to dive in!

RV Roof Repair

So you want an RV but can’t afford a new one. If you’re like me and have more time than money, then perhaps your best option is to buy an old RV and fix it up. If you happen to find a really good deal, then chances are it has water damage. All old RV’s do! Time to tackle an RV roof repair!

I know, an RV roof replacement can seem like an impossibly difficult task, but once you understand the basics, it really is do-able for a do-it-yourselfer.
