Interior remodel

I thought I would post some before and after pictures of our 1998 land yacht. Changes include;
- [ ] New carpet
- [ ] Reupholstered with Sunbrella fabric.
- [ ] Backsplash in bathroom and kitchen area.
- [ ] New faucet in bathroom and kitchen.
- [ ] Got rid of the gold...Painted hinges on cabinets and new handles. New light fixture.
- [ ] New shower head and handle.
- [ ] New hooks and towel bars
- [ ] Two new TVs and Blu-ray players for front and bedroom.
- [ ] Removed mirrored cabinet panels.
- [ ] New cornice boxes in bedroom.
- [ ] USB charging ports on front dash.
- [ ] Full extension cabinet drawer glides
- [ ] Cut down the faces on the drawers underneath the bed so they can be easily accessed even without pulling the drawer fully open.
- [ ] Back up camera system (two side cameras and two rear camera’s)
- [ ] Installed LED nightlight to bathroom and changed out most interior lights for LED.

I still have to finish the cornice boxes for windows in the front part of the RV, and some trimwork below the TV on the front dash. Also, I am going to make up some LED light strips to replace the compact florescence bulbs in the overhead light fixtures… These are the last interior lights that are not LED.
Hopefully you’ll enjoy seeing the pictures and maybe get some ideas for your project.

Great looking updates!! Noticed you eliminated the mirror cabinet doors over sofa. Did you simply reverse them or replace the panels with different wood? Am considering reversing mine and wraping them in black mesh similar to whats used on speaker panels.

Are you reusing the cornice boards over the blinds or taking out completely?

I just installed new aluminum tiles in the bathroom to cover the cheap wall paper.

Did you do anything to the ceiling?

On the cabinets above the sofa and in the bedroom I removed the mirror and then flipped the door panels. I used foam core board from Walmart, and covered it with shelf paper that match the cabinetry. That went on the inside to make up for the space of the mirrors. 30 pounds of mirror removed in total!

I am building new cornice boxes. We want a cleaner more modern look so I am not having them drop down on the sides. I used a clear plastic command strip that I modified to hold down the cords for the blinds. I can attach a photo if anyone is interested. I’m hoping this weekend to be able to complete the cornice boxes on the front part of the Yacht.

If you have a picture of the aluminum tile you used in the bathroom I would love to see them. The wallpaper and ceilings are in excellent shape, so other than patching a few holes on the walls, that is all still original.

30lbs of mirrors....wow it does add up doesn't it Your giving me lots of incentive to get rid of mine now. My vanity mirror broke and now decided not to replace it. Instead looking for a corner cabinet/shelve that can be mounted in its place. I dislike the mirror over the bed too...rather have a padded leather headboard.

My bathroom tile photos are on a cell and having trouble moving them. Hope to have all downloaded by the weekend. Can txt them if you send your #. The metal tiles were purchased at Menards in Michigan this summer and give a smooth comtempory look similar to the new Airstream trailers.

I am also looking at eliminating the huge drawer under the sofa. Hope to simply put the padded exterior panel on a henge and make room to install plastic bins in the space. That's more weight to reduce too.

Spent today reinsulating my water/sewer compartment and patching holes.

Cornice boards look great.

What part of the dash did you paint? The plastic below the fake wood? If so was it a spray paint? Did you also paint the plastic trim between the 2 windshields?

Interior remodel

Thanks!
I painted all the hard plastic which had slightly yellowed over time. That included both door panels, lower part of the dash below the wood trim, trim between the two front windows and the trim piece between the front and side windows. All the trim pieces were removed and sprayed outside of the vehicle with the exception for the two plastic panels below the wood grain, which I taped off and sprayed in place. I used Colorbond LVP paint (Ford - Ford:Medium Pebble #340). It is specifically designed for auto interiors. They do sell a similar product in the auto parts store but I couldn’t find the color I was looking for so that’s why I used Colorbond.
I did add additional soundproofing to the front cab area when I replaced the carpet… I would highly recommend when you have the side panels off to add soundproofing to the drivers door and passenger side. The drivers door on the 30 foot model has no sound proofing or insulation. It is the outside metal piece and a plastic interior trim. I added soundproofing to the metal and the interior plastic panel. This made a big difference!
