    We wanted a different look than the dark paneling you see so much. I came up with beaded boards and the planking on the walls because I had worked with it before and I knew it would not be much heavier than the original. I also wanted the look of wood. The inside was in great shape, we did it as a cosmetic change.
    I don't think we added much weight due to the cabinet and paneling changes. The counter tops are about the same weight as the original ones.
    Thanks for the post

    Nice remodel! I'll borrow a few ideas for mine as I go forward. I like the doors to the floor. I'm already planning the light wood look, using birch paneling. I can better envision mine now!

    So what you are saying is, you reused the Frame and outer shell....ever think of just getting a job for one of the manufacturers and showing them how to build a high quality product which does not have problems coming off the showroom floor?

    Your imagination and follow through were great. I bet the creative juices were flowing to think of these. Great work. I have a question on the outside skin where you added the decals. Was it a smooth surface? My is pebbled and was wondering if a decal would adhere to all of the peaks and valleys on my finish. Again great job!!!!!

    Id be very careful how much weight you hang from those O Rings you screwed into the ceiling.


    I, and others like me, have gone to some lengths to avoid screwing anything into the ceiling. Other than the CO detector, Ive been successful.

    That was just incredible. Thanks for sharing such great ideas. Love the new graphics on the side. Much more comfortable on the inside with all your modifications. A real cabin on wheels. I'd give you a standing ovation, if I could, for a job well done.

    Can I ask how much did it cost to make the awning, and how hard was it to sew the scallops? That might just be my next mod. Love it!

    So what do you think, is there a market for renovated pop ups? We had a friend say they would sell us their's and we could renovate it and sell it. Fun to think about.

    . Honestly I don't see how there will be much money in "flipping a popup". Unless you are fixing a lift, roof and other critical components. You just might not get your money's worth. If you are only doing cosmetic changes, you may or may not get your money's worth. Then again if this pup is given to you for free why not. Many buyers may have a totally different style and would replace everything you did. My neighbor just before he moved spent 10k redoing his entire kitchen he only used it about a month before he moved out. The new owners came in and gutted the kitchen themselves keeping only the fridge. All cabinets, stove etc was torn out. It was painful to watch.
