    Oh my goodness...your reaction resembles mine when I first saw Pop Up Princess. [LOL] Wow, you can paint the cabinets, update the flooring, make new cushions and curtains?! Don't think we'll mess with the exterior though...my husband has had enough of my fun. [;)]

    How about making the exterior look like one of the wrappings of a Hersey chocolate product.

    Oh yea!!! But be ware what you wish for! This exterior project has taken a lot more time and money than I had originally planned and it's the stress is taking years off my life!
    Too late, mine already looks like a giant chocolate bar! :)

    Oh, you meant put decals on that look like wrapping. I get it now! I'm kinda slow today. :/
    Maybe I could get Hershey to sponsor my pup renovation!

    You betcha! [:D]

    On one of our old campers, the decals were old and peeling, so we took them off, painted, and added a big decal from eBay. This was about four or five years ago and the last one, with the new decal, is the best one I can find right now. Not sure why I didn't put a better one of the finished product in the folder with the painting ones. Anyway, it was not that much work at all. Here is that old camper:

    On our current camper, I liked the decals and they were in fairly good shape. We just taped them off and painted with spray paint. The entire job took only two hours. Very easy. Just did the back the other day and it took even less time due to less decal to tape off.

    The only new decal is the Musket Mickey one on the door [:D]

    A couple cans of spray paint can make your camper look almost new.

    That's a good point. I'll keep that in mind when I'm selecting decals!

    Down here in the desert sun, a dark color couldn't be my choice but where you live hmmmm maybe break it up with some slick decals/pin stripping, might look real wicked ya know? Different etc.

    I shot mine with single stage automotive paint, same code as my Dodge Ram. (Desert white) Put a few stickers on it...made it our own.
