Looks Great. That pink carpet made it look like a mobile bordello. Now it's livable.

I'm not sure what you are looking for in reply - just compliments, perhaps? The new tile floor is great - really updates the look. The extensive rework in the storage bays probably cost a bundle but doesn't show much. Anyway, nice looking coach and hope you enjoy many more happy miles in it.

We owned a 98 Intrigue. Looks like you did a great job in renovating! The interior look is really awesome. Now you need a footstool for the Ekornes chair. :)

Not looking for compliments, just asking for your opinion or ideas on what could be improved or changed. or not,

What an amazing job, it looks like a lot of hard work but your results couldn't have been better. We have yet to take the plunge with a RV and have been thinking about renovating an older unit and your pictures certainly gave us many great ideas. Just out of curiosity, what is next to the chair? A heater of some sort?

WOW!! That sure was a lot of work. The renovation looks very good. Now, since you asked for input, here goes. The new entry way(stairwell) looks a lot neater and will be easier to clean. New tile floor looks nice. I really like the new bedspread. It brightens up the bedroom. However, there are some items that make the coach interior look a bit on the dark side. I really couldn't tell what color those rugs(LR and kitchen) are, black, navy or dark red background? The dark cabinet next to the recliner, the dark chairs and table and the black sidewalls on the sofa.

Did you put insulation under the new plywood in the storage compartments? How about a light in the stairwell?

Congratulations on the job. Well done!!!

Best regards,
Liz Pearce

Yes, it is a 5000 BTU electric fireplace and it works very well.  It takes the chill off the New Hampshire mornings and also adds some ambiance.

Thanks Liz
That is what I was looking for. Yes it looks dark but with the light floor it seems to work fine. Also the window boxes will be lighter so that helps. (when I get them done) I did put insulation in the compartment walls and added 2 lights in the stairwell.

I would like to second the wow comments - it really looks fantastic.  I do have one question though.  Do you know how much more weight the tile and plywood added to the coach?

Beautiful work!  That was a lot of labor, but it looks like a new coach.  What year is (was) it?

It had tile in the kitchen and just added new tile in the living room.  The plywood was just replaced I had to remove it to fix the rotted steel I then installed new plywood after fixing the steel. I did change the new steel from 1/16" wall to 1/8" wall tube steel. I added under 200Lb to the coach.

Looks like a lot of work and a worthwhile result.  I hope those chairs that look loose aren't though.  Think 65 MPH 15-20# projectiles coming at the back of your head in the event of an accident if they really are loose.

What you did is fantastic! I don't think the carpets make it look dark at all. You certainly have a knack for renovating that many of us wish we had!!

YES, can do.... viewing all images

    It turned out that snapfish.com and www.snapfish.com were on my "blocked cookie' list.

The Pop-Up suggestion had no effect.

Once I corrected the cookie problem, all was well. I was able to view every picture perfectly and I was not only impressed by the terrific work done, I was awed.

Congratulations Brian and Tarra.

as someone else posted - obviously a labor of love.
quite the transformation. do you mind telling us how many hours you spent of your time?
how much outside help did you have to hire/pay for, and for what tasks?
and finally, how much cash (not counting your labor) did you spend for materials and outside labor costs?
thanks for any of that info you'd care to share.

We spent $7000.00  we did everything are selfs, no outside help except some friends helping lift and hold things. It took about a year working at night after work and weekends. Still have somethings to do to finish but it is usable now.
