To remodel an old motorhome, replace the flooring, lighting and kitchen appliances with updated, appropriately weighted materials and fixtures. Replace mattresses, curtains, cushions and any other fabric in the motorhome. Use wood putty to fill in any dings or nicks, and use primer and paint for interior areas that are appropriate to paint, including cabinets that need an update.
When replacing mattresses, look for models made for RV use that can last at least five years. If there are multiple sleeping areas, use foam mattresses for beds that are not commonly used and high-end mattresses for those that are. Remove any dome lights, and replace them with updated options. Protect the fixtures from water damage by applying silicone sealant around the base. Replace any other interior or exterior lights that are cracked, yellow or cloudy.
When replacing flooring, multiply the length of the floor space by the width to determine the appropriate square footage needed for high-end peel-and-stick tiles. Apply the tiles from the center of the floor area to the edges. Use small battery-operated LED light fixtures under the counters for added lighting that does not require an electrical connection. Use an induction burner with a storage cabinet near the stove to cook food faster.
