I didn't take before photos but we did an interior redo and a new paint job on the exterior. We call it the Leisure Seeker after the movie with Helen Miranda and Donald Sutherland. It's a 2008 Fleetwood Sedona.

Nice. That’s a serious ac unit. No propane ?
We camp at State parks that have hookups. I'm Florida there's hardly a need for a heater(which we don't have any way.) We don't cook inside. We have a folding camp kitchen we purchased when we were roughing it in a tent. And using propane for the fridge scares me. We put a couple frozen water jugs in on route so when we plug into Shore Power the fridge is already cold. We disconnected the lines and mounted a plastic resin box on the tongue for storage. Looking forward to our next trip in October. 5 night stay on the west coast of Florida. BTW the AC makes it super cold at night. Have to shut it down in the middle of the night.

Am finally able to upload some interior photos...
I am a retired painting contractor and during semi-retirement worked for PPG Paints. I used a PPG product on the cabinets that has been successfully used for kitchen cabinets, Breakthrough. We used a press and stick vinyl flooring from Lowes. Curtains were purchased at Walmart and cut and sewn to length. The Mrs. found the bedding in one of her catalogs that are a regular mail delivery.
Not appearing is the removal of the two burner stove and replaced by a piece of Corian. I plan to replace the table. It was a pedestal mount that would continually wobble. I replaced the pedestal with folding legs which is by far more stable. We only use it board gaming, journal writing or if it is raining. Camping to us means being outdoors.

Nailed it~! Now, start a second and sell it. Pay for the 1st one? [LOL]
LoL. It was a labor of love and experience. I used to be a painting contractor. Without a shop it would be difficult. In our village the codes are such that you can't have a work vehicle, RV, or boat visible from the street. We opted for a pop-up because it fits in the garage. No access to the back yard. At 73 I just want to enjoy what we have. If I start again it would mean to much disposable income. Her Majesty would find to many other things to dispose of it and too many tzatchkis on top of the pup when not in use.

Thanks! Trouble is it looks like Hurricane Ian probably whipped out our next reserved camping trip to Koreshan SP which lies only a few miles from the Gulf Coast between Ft Meyers and Naples. They got and still are getting hammered. The videos were heart wrenching for all who dwell there.
I don't think cleaning up the park will be the highest priority.
We were scheduled for October 12 thru the 17th.
