Amy is a mama of 4 who homeschools, and has a passion for DIY and interior design. She and her husband DIY’d their home and decided to buy a camper to renovate during Covid.
They paid $4,500 for the 29-foot trailer, and spent $1,800 transforming it into a stylish camper their family can enjoy on vacations throughout the year. This Wildwood Travel trailer now has a neutral interior with modern-farmhouse vibes.
They enjoyed the process of renovating their camper so much they’ve taken on their first client this fall, and plan to start offering consulting services within the next 6 months.
What inspired you to experience #RVlife?
My grandpa started a motor home business in the 1960’s so I guess it’s in my blood. He would buy a motor home, my grandma would clean it and then they would sell it. They started out one motor home at a time. I’ve always loved taking trips in motor homes.
How often do you travel?
How would you describe your decorating style?
What’s your favorite aspect of interior design?
I love simple, clean lines (not a lot of clutter) with neutral colors. I love adding in beautiful lighting and lots of texture. I love to thrift so bringing in unique, old items is important to me.
Did you draw inspiration for this remodel from anything or anyone specific?
I love Troop Nashville, RV Fixer Upper and Joinery and Design CO from Instagram.
Where’s your favorite place to shop for décor?
Target, Hobby Lobby, Amazon and thrift
What project made the most difference?
Paint! We painted all the walls Benjamin Moore Simply White which brightened up the space and made the camper feel bigger and brand new. I also love the unique light and the faux sofa. The vinyl flooring was a huge improvement too!
What was most challenging about your travel trailer renovation?
The dry rot in the slide out. This is what set our renovation back months because it took Mitch a long time to figure out how to put a brand new floor in as well as replacing a wall. Slideouts are not stable structures but he figured it out.
What’s the most meaningful item you incorporated? Feel free to share the story behind it.
I love the coffee bar with the sign “Everything We Need Is Right Here” which is true. Our family of 6 adventuring together is the most important thing in life-it’s us without all the stuff, spending time together in nature.
What’s your favorite splurge-worthy item that was incorporated into the interior?
The brand new sink-I love it. It’s modern and easy to clean.
What do you love most about your RV?
I love that all 6 of us have a place to sleep and it feels like a tiny house. It’s a retreat when it’s raining outside and we all gather around the dinette and play cards. I also love the fact that our master bedroom has a door so we have some privacy.
Do you have any future projects planned?
Not in this one, but we are going to work on a client’s 1990’s motor home and redesign it to fit their family of 9’s needs.
We love to work as a husband and wife team and can’t wait to start working with clients. We hope to offer consulting services in the next 6 months.
Do you have a favorite RV destination or camping spot?
We love Northern Michigan. It has the Sleeping Bear Dunes national lakeshore, wineries, lots of hiking, biking and Lake Michigan to paddle board and kayak in.
Most asked about product sources:
Paint Colors-BM Tricorn Black and BM Simply White

What piece of advice would you give someone about to begin an RV renovation?
Expect setbacks-you never know when you’ll come across dry rot or another challenge but it’s all part of the learning process.
