New floors, new LED lights, stainless steel for the fridge, all cabinet stickers removed, sanded and painted. Re-upholstered the dinette, couch, and valances. Installed a led tv and xbox under the bench for he kids. New kitchen and bathroom faucet and toilet. New double step so the young kids can get in and out easier. Last things on my to do list is install a central vacuum under the fridge and I think I can stop. Chances are I will probably always find more things to tweak.
Your correct.

You, as an Airstream owner, are NEVER done with the works.

But, there are periods when one can sit back and have a couple or more beers, and think about "now, what will be next".

Well, at least that keeps the mischief around the corner.

Cabinet and closet doors

When you say you removed the "stickers" from the cabinets, sanded and painted them, do you mean you peeled off that sticky vinyl covering, and then sanded and painted the plywood beneath? Did the sanding get off all the sticky residue? Did you do anything else to prep the wood before painting?

One more thing: did you remove the sofa in order to reupholster it?

We've just bought a 1986 Sovereign and want to lighten things up as you did. Thanks for getting back to us.
