Remodeling Our Vintage RV Motorhome

Over the summer and fall of 2017 I remodeled our 1998 Fleetwood Bounder motorhome. We bought it in May 2017 and decided that while we were waiting to travel in it ourselves, that we would remodel it and rent it out on AirBnB so it wasn’t a useless investment.

It was a big job and it was summer. I would work from 7:00-9:00 a.m. before the Florida heat made it too hot to work in. I painted the cabinets and cabinet doors and drawers and repainted all of the hardware, tore out the old flooring and laid new laminate flooring, repainted all of the walls and laid new carpet in the cab.

It was definitely worth the effort and now we have a beautiful, comfortable, vintage RV that we can call our own and hopefully do a lot of travel in sometime in the future. For now – I’ve listed it on AirBnB for travelers coming to Tampa.


Here’s a few pics of before and after of the renovation.
