What you propose is certainly possible, however it may be somewhat labor intensive. So long as the laminate material is firmly attached to its substrate, a new veneer can be installed over the existing laminate (the existing laminate would need to be scuffed to provide a "tooth" for the contact cement utilized to attach the new veneer. The cabinet doors and drawer fronts would likely be the easiest to update with new veneer . . . the cabinet boxes themselves may a bit more difficult depending upon the amount of curvature that the veneer would need to be "bent" around.
There are two possibilities that come to mind as to vendors who might be able to handle the up-date. The factory in Jackson Center, Ohio would definitely be able to handle the upgrade . . . and there are typically cost breaks when such work is scheduled during the slower Winter months. A second possibility that would likely be closer to you would be Fowler RV Interiors
in Symsonia, Kentucky . . . Arlene and Henry Fowler do excellent work . . . Henry rebuilt one of the cabinets in my Overlander and built new oak table-tops for both my Minuet and Overlander.
Good luck with your investigation!
