If you’ve been reading my blog for very long you know that we have been renovating our RV for several months now. Some of which was during the time we were still living in it full-time. As of December 2020 we had purchased a site built home and had decided to give up the RV life for good. There were still some renovations that needed to be completed and in April we were able to complete those, which was mostly the bathroom getting painted and installing new flooring. When we removed the carpet originally while still living in it we had gone with some wood tongue and grove planks that were light colored and were never happy with them so we decided to switch out with peel and stick dark wood look tiles which made such a big difference.
In addition, we made custom day beds where the original couches were in the living room slides and added a butcher block counter and cabinets in the dining room area. All of these changes made a big difference to the overall look of the place. Once all the renovations were complete we listed it for sale on RVT.com, Facebook Marketplace and the sale lot at Fort Campbell Army Base in Clarksville, Tennessee. We received several calls and offers with lots of people only wanting the truck, but we wanted to sale as a package deal. After about a week we decided if we could sale the RV first we would split the package up. We would have made more profit in the end, but we honored the package deal when a couple saw it on the base and sold our babies on the 6th of May.
It is now time to move on to the next chapter. What that next chapter is we aren’t so sure about or at least I’m not so sure about it anyway. My dream place would be something tiny on a lakefront that has a dock so I can fish every day if I want and at the least can sit out and look at the water every day. We’ll have to see if we can make that happen or not.
I will miss the ability to move around as my gypsy spirit doesn’t like sitting for too long in one place, but am also looking forward to what might come next. The RV was what we needed while we had it and I hope the next couple can make many more memories in it and that it will live on for several years.
Below are pictures of the final renovations.
