DW and I bought this little ole thing back in August. I was able to do a bit of the deconstruction back then. Had a water leak so I had to get that fixed and the wall repaired. DS and I tore out the dinette, it was disgusting, and then we pulled out the carpet. I think they dumped a dump truck full of sand into the carpeting. Id never seen so much sand in my life.

This is the entryway before and after:




This is looking towards the rear before (Didnt know the DW was in here HA) and after:




Old floor (Pink.....whyd it have to be Pink) and New Floor




Here are other photos of the during work and some of the finished. We removed the Microwave. Put up tile in the kitchen and the bathroom. We also put in a ceramic toilet (YES!!!). Still have some trim work to do and put a mattress in and then we will be close to going on the road.




Been a lot of sweating and swearing in this MH. The engine runs like a beast though and we cant wait to hit the road at the end of July.

Very nice work! Yes, there was a period when the manufacturers thought pink was the way to go. You will appreciate your RV now that you have invested your time and energy into it. Again, nice job!

Good job! Now you have a nice RV and probably not a whole lot of money invested.
Time and sweat are another story.
Enjoy.

To the OP: It is stories like your's that keep me motivated and loving my old duck. Of course, you are far ahead of me. I'm still working on solving the OH leak. Thanks for sharing.

What a great makeover. Love the allure cherry flooring. I put it in a BT Cruiser. So easy to clean and soft underfoot.you obviously have a great amount of skill and have created a one of a kind traveling home.

Thanks for all the nice things said. It makes me feel a lot better. There have been some huge battles with this old duck but its finally close to being wrapped up and done.

Eyegor, good luck with your duck. Have you found the source of your leaks or are you still working on finding those?

Just because I'm out in the garage swearing doesn't mean I'm not having a good time.

(Nice Job!!)
