What made you choose this Jayco 5th Wheel to renovate?
Other than the amazing condition of the rig, the bunks and 1.5 bath!
What’s your favorite aspect of interior design?
We love creating thoughtful design so spaces are not only beautiful and comfortable but incredibly functional, too.
What’s the most splurge-worthy item you incorporated into the RV interior?
We’re always going to splurge on an electric fireplace. It’s our goal to put one in every renovation.
What project made the most difference?
Moving the bed against the wall and putting the closets side by side really opened up the primary bedroom and made the space more functional.
Do you take on custom RV renovation projects or offer design consulting?
Yes to both! We are currently booking for 2023 and offer consultation calls for renovation and/or design.
“It’s hard to put in words how grateful we feel to be a part of people’s journey. With every rig we are humbled knowing they trusted us to make their home anywhere, changing the view whenever wanderlust hits.”
What’s one of your favorite new features in this Jayco 5th wheel?
Taking off the cabinet doors to reveal open shelves and swapping the door that opened into the room for a sliding barn door totally opened up the space even with the addition of the laundry hamper. Serving double duty, the barn door secures for travel in front of the bookshelf keeping things in their place. Adding the arched top to the bookshelf was an easy way to bring character to something basic.
