RV Renovation Tips: The 4 R’s

Thinking about renovating your RV? We think it’s a great idea! Maybe you’ve owned your RV for many years and it just needs a bit of freshening up. Or maybe you’ve gone with a budget-friendly option of shopping from our used RVs for sale and want to breathe some life into a pre-owned RV to make it truly yours. This is an amazing option to keep your RV looking in pristine condition. Here are some top RV renovation tips.

Revive

Maybe the kitchen needs an update or some more counter space. Did you know our RV parts catalog is full of items that can freshen up your new or used RV? Ask us about adding some countertop extensions, or investing in a portable camp kitchen for some outdoor meals.

RV Renovation Tips

Or it may be as simple as adding a new throw pillow or two, or a shower caddy that helps keep down the bathroom clutter. Think about ways to add or subtract to freshen up your RV’s look!

Recover

Maybe your U-shaped dinette or free standing chairs are looking a little worn. Don’t get rid of them! If the cushion is still in good shape with lots of life left, consider reupholstering them instead.

RV Renovation Tips

One way you can save money on renovating your used RV is to keep and update what you can rather than just automatically tossing it.

Repair

“Time marches on…sooner or later, you realize it’s marching across your face.” – Dolly Parton in Steel Magnolias.

Time and age can do a number on us all – even your RV! Roof cracks, scuffed floors, small carpet rips…these things can be repaired fairly easily. Our RV service department can give your new or used RV a tune up and some much needed maintenance and repair on a number of issues.

Replace

Sometimes you just need to rip something out and let it go, whether it’s pulling up carpet, taking down curtains, or replacing an old sofa. Again, our RV service department can help on some major repairs or replacements to help get your RV road ready.

Ready to shop for a used RV? With these RV renovation tips, you can make a pre-owned RV look just like new! Contact us today to ask if we can help you with any of these RV renovation tips.

Shop for a New or Used RV By Floor Plan

Did you know you can shop for a new or used RV by floor plan style? Our search engine makes it easy. Shopping for the perfect RV for your family can be overwhelming when you’re looking at a dealership’s massive inventory, so narrow your search terms and shop by floor plan to make the process faster!

What Do You Want in an RV?

One popular floor plan feature when shopping for a new or used RV is a bath and a half. Having an additional half bath is a feature you’ll never regret opting for. In our 2020 Keystone RV Fuzion 430 toy hauler fifth wheel for sale, you’ll find a full bath connected to the private bedroom. It includes dual entry for easy access, so no one has to walk through the bedroom to get to it.

Shop By Floor Plan

At the other end of the RV, enjoy the convenience of a half bath located between the kitchen and garage. This allows anyone to slip out quietly in the early morning for a sunrise kayak outing without waking everyone up.

Shop By Floor Plan

Having a bath and a half in your RV will be something your entire family appreciates – nobody has to wait on the bathroom again! Take a look at all of our new and used RVs with a bath and a half for sale.

Another floor plan features that many families love is a bunkhouse. We have dozens of RVs with a bunkhouse for sale, and the possibilities are nearly endless! Some of our RVs with a bunkhouse include double bunks in the rear corner. You can also pick a bunkhouse configuration which includes single bunks with a dinette so kids can enjoy their own game or movie night.

Shop By Floor Plan

This 2020 Keystone Sprinter 341BIK for sale includes a bunkhouse that gives you two single bunks, an entertainment center set up, plenty of storage, and a lower sofa!

Additionally, you’ll find drawers or under bed storage space to accommodate suitcases, duffel bags, and backpacks so all of your luggage stays out of the way. Compare our Vibe travel trailers with bunkhouses here.

Spacious Walk Through Bathroom

Hard doors, not curtains, close off the bathroom in the Forest River Vibe, giving you extra privacy. Some models include a walk-through bathroom, allowing you easy access from dual sides. And the spacious shower, vanity, and sink give you plenty of room to freshen up in the morning.

If a day of fun means you return to your Vibe travel trailer a bit muddy, take advantage of the outside shower to get quickly rinsed off without tracking in mud and dirt.
