2001 LandYacht remodel

First post here, although I have been lurking for a while.

My wife and I bought this motorhome in 2005 and have been happy with it apart from the lack of storage and counter top space. So, now being retired I decided to do something about it!

Out went the sofa, barrel chair, dinette and most of the carpet. The bathroom door was re-located, a section cut from the bathroom wall and the bathroom floor tiled. The rest of the floor was done with laminate. I made the cabinets from self-assembly oak kitchen cabinets which had to be beefed up a little with glue blocks. The Corian was installed by professionals and turned out to be a good match for the existing counters.

The TV enclosure was made into a storage cabinet and a new TV mounted where the mirror used to be.

This conversion was a lot of work, but has made the motorhome much more liveable for us. If anyone is thinking of doing something similar I am happy to answer any questions you may have.

What laminate flooring did you use? Brand? Style? Looks like a good match and I'm getting ready to replace the carpet in mine. I was looking at Pergo for mine.

Thanks for the compliments!

Re. the flooring, I will have to get back to you on that. I know it is not 'Pergo'. It's from Home Depot but I did not save the packaging.

Later this week when I go to Home Depot I will look for the display.

Nice remodeling changes. I'm in the middle of some remodeling, so I appreciate your post
I'm putting in new deeper single sink to replace my smaller double and corion table and counter tops. Also removed my TV and installed a dash cabinet similar to the one you built and installed my new TV in the center of upper console after shortening the length of the two cabinet doors to make room for it. Also upgraded sound system to go with it. I'm thinking of removing small lower cabinet by entry door and relocating barrel chair for better forward viewing at this time also. Will post pic's soon as I finish. Your right this remodeling alot of work.

Maybe a lot of work, but the results are well worth the effort.

Kuddos on the walk-through bath! You have me thinking.......

Our double sink has some problems with the paint peeling off. It seems to be paint over stainless steel and the paint did not bond to the stainless properly, maybe not that surprising. I was thinking of using paint stripper to remove the remaining paint and be left with a bare stainless sink although it would not be shiny like a new SS sink.

To remove the sink seems pretty difficult, as access is limited.

Look forward to seeing your pictures!

I think Airstream should have made the bathroom like that in the first place. I would have liked to have removed all of the wall, that was to the left of the original bathroom door but unfortunately there is a vent pipe located in the remaining section of wall, so that had to stay.

Re-locating the door also makes the folding door redundant. Although I haven't removed mine yet.

I couldn't agree more! The 33' & the 35' Diesel Land Yachts were both walk-through baths.

The walk through baths seem to give you more room, but closes off your access to the other end of the coach if someone is using the bath area.
It would not be suitable for everyone, and not in my own application.

Privacy is still important to most people.

ID:	153866My 2005 TerraYacht didn't get the extensive work you did--I don't think I could do it if I wanted to! However, I wanted to share a couple of things I've done in the past year or two:

I found a tray that turned out to be a perfect size, and mounted it with drop-down hardware to the side of the vanity for more space when drying hair, doing other involved bathroom stuff. I now have a nice cutting board and more hardware & will do something similar in the galley for a drop-down cutting board.

The InterVac vacuum was mounted on apiece of shelf that happened to be the exact size and matching finish. With the 35' hose it does the entire coach, and I attached the panel with industrial Velcro so I can remove it easily if needed. This was much easier than installing a central-style system and doesn't take up valuable cellar space.

Hmm........... I suppose it depends on the configuration of your coach. We have a sliding door between the bathroom and the bedroom. So the bathroom user is afforded privacy from the bedroom.

All we have between the bathroom and the rear of the coach is the bedroom. I can't imagine a scenario where someone needs to get from the front of the coach to the bedroom so urgently that they can't wait for the bathroom to become vacant.
