about this RV renovation
Type of RV: 33′ Damon Challenger Motorhome
Renovated by: Mandy and Aaron Wilson / Timeline: 9 Months
When Mandy mentioned renting their home, selling their stuff, and completely renovating an RV before hitting the road to travel with their kids, her husband, Aaron, did something few would expect, he jumped on board!
Sure they were walking into unknown territory and had to figure out the details, including how to be landlords, but it was a risk this family was willing to take.
Today we’re peeking inside their beautiful, well-organized motorhome. Not only is the design fresh, modern, and cozy but they also made modifications to make the layout work better for their family, including replacing the passenger chair with a second sofa, and switching out closet space for bunk beds.
Were you inspired by anything specific?
Our only goal was as soon as we walked in it would look and feel like a home, not an RV.
What was most challenging about your renovation?
The majority of the renovation our RV was parked at a campground 30 minutes away. Driving back and forth took a lot of our time. Also, we were renovating in Florida in the summer.
Where’s your favorite place to shop for décor?
Home Goods, Marshalls, hobby lobby
What project made the most difference?
Definitely painting everything white! It made the space seem so much bigger.
What’s something RV’ing has taught you?
I have no idea why we had so much stuff. Stuff we honestly never used!
What’s your favorite aspect of tiny living?
Having less stuff has been amazing! No yard work has been so amazing too!
What piece of advice would you give someone about to begin an rv renovation?
Just jump in. Once you get going, it gets easier! Seeing progress also boosts your confidence.
