Have you ever remodeled any part of your RV?

Remodeling an RV might be a pain in the you-know-what, but it might also make your RV look nicer, feel bigger, or it might make you more money if/when you decide to sell it.

Have you ever remodeled any part of your RV? If so, was it a major remodel? Minor? If you’d leave a comment and tell us what you did to it, we’d love to hear. Thank you!


  1. I have a 2020 Coachmen Freelander 26ft RV. I’m currently investing in removing the dinette area completely as well as the jackknife sofa from behind the drivers seat, and moving a portion of that bench seating (L shaped dinette) to the other side behind the drivers seat. Keeping a portion of this bench seating allows for storage space and additional “dog seat” area under the window. This will open the space up for me to have a more comfortable chair/recliner and desk setup for my work as I still am a full time remote worker. As it’s just myself and my dog traveling I figure if I do have an overnight guest they can sleep on an air-mattress in the main area or sleep in the above the driver/passenger seats bunk space.

  2. We took a 37 foot Itasca Windcruiser and completely remodeled the inside. New headline, new Floor, all redonne cabinets and closet and shower and toilet. New furnaces, new hot water heater. and a special computer desk set up. We also put in an ATS to run the generator. Rewired a lot of it in the process.

  3. WE bought a 2010 Damon Avanti and promptly repainted (in a lighter 2 color combo) all the walls, the cupboards, upgraded to a GPS display with tire monitoring, recovered the dinette seats and love seat (a necessity since it is one of those leather look vinyl fabric that was ‘peeling’, a common issue) and we are planning to take out the love seat and put in a desk unit there (decision made after new vinyl:( ). Replaced the TVs and lights replace to LED ones. Luv the new lighter colors as made it so much more roomier looking and brighter too.
    It is worth it as this unit is a well made unit.

  4. In our original 20′ TT (1972 Trailblazer) I ripped out the dinette and rebuilt it into a desk/study area with option to convert to a single bed if needed. Lived in it 3 years in college. Later added an elevated double bed in front with storage beneath and lived in that 4 years with my wife while building our log house.
    Later traded up to a 24′ Sunline and now full-time in a 2014 40′ Thor Tuscany XTE 40ex diesel pusher. (At 65 years young we decided on more room and comfort).
    Sold the house!

  5. We added command hooks in a few places inside the RV, but nothing more so I said, “no.” We may do some very minor changes to the next RV because we plan for it to be our last one, but I doubt it.

  6. We replaced the carpet with heavy vinyl planks, replaced the shades, moved the TV from over the windshield to a hidden spot behind the dog crate we made. It’s on a TV lift. Replaced the couch with recliner/loveseat, and many other changes.

  7. A 2001 Holiday Rambler MH – took out carpeting and replaced with luxury vinyl tile, took out J-Lounge and replaced with Euro-Recliners, recovered the dinette cushions and window valances, replaced the curtain around the front of the cockpit, and recovered the captains chairs and couch. It was a huge improvement. However, we soon replaced it with a newer MH, one with 4 instead of 2 slides.

  8. 2008 Alpine 38FDDS MH. All new floors, new backsplash in galley, removed one couch and replaced with cabinet and 50” tv. Replaced mirrored closet doors with bead board, headboard redone to get rid of mirrors, new blinds and valances, led lights inside, TV in cargo bay, new side and backup cameras, took out dinette and replaced with live edge table and chairs. Decided too big to get into lot of places and sold it. Was nice when finished though. Fun project

  9. I bought my 2015 Dynamax DX3-37RB in May, 2014. For RVers who only use their rig occasionally, they could probably put up with the pretty but UNCOMFORTABLE OEM furniture. Back then, my RV treks ran for weeks (or months) at a time so uncomfortable furniture was simply NOT going to work for me (I went Full Time in 2018). In 2015 while at an RV rally in Elkhart, IN, I met an “upfitter” who could accommodate me right after the rally. With the exception of one barrel chair, ALL of the other OEM furniture and main mattress were replaced by QUALITY furniture which, over six+ years HAS been comfortable. In 2019, I added eight large solar panels, two LARGE lithium batteries and a Victron Energy System that controls said upgrades. Each A/C got a Soft Start upgrade too. From the lithium batteries, BOTH A/C units can run for 4 ~ 4.5 hours before I’d have to fire up the 8Kw generator (or plug into shore power). Since my rig is build on a Freightliner base, it will be around longer than me!
