It would be nice to view your pictures. But I don't do facebook or any other of the so called social media.
How about just posting the pictures on this forum.

You guys are doing a great job! I especially like how you've done the trim around the edge of the slide. That looks like it'd be pretty hard to do. Is it?

It was hard for me to tell. Did you replace your cabinets or repaint the existing ones? They look nice.

Thanks so much for posting the photos. Looking forward to you posting more.

Hey guys, Thanks for all the positive feed back. OK, so to answer questions
1. It is a 1997 Cardinal by Forest River
2. The trim was a nightmare until I went to the Home Depot and bought liquid nails and a finish nailer. After that it was smooth sailing.
3. The cabinets are painted. (I totally did not know what I was getting into until I was 1/2 way though.) It takes a ton of prep and a ton of coats. I did do my research and bought the best paint for the job and I found that at Sherwin Williams.

We have been working on it since early September; Hubby and I are about 1/2 way though. We wanted something we could buy for cheap and make our own. You never really know how much a remodel on an RV is a labor of love. Considering this will be our new home we wanted it to have that warm feel that home should have. Thanks for all the comments guys; they mean a lot to us.

Here are some pictures of what we were up to yesterday. We finished the patches on the roof. Today we cleaned the entire roof and tomorrow we are coating all roof surfaces (including the slides, but not the patches) with liquid rubber roof coating.

 i sure hope you guys  got  some thing made to stick to EPDM  roofing  or in 6 month is it starts to chock  all that is going to come up 

if you start to fight with it latter you can install a new rood for under 250$ with every thing off ebay

Yes we used a product designed to stick to EPDM roofs. We did lots of research and worked very closely with our local RV service guy on how to repair and coat our roof. 1/3 of it has already been replaced and the other coated. We were going to replace all the rubber, but ran into the money issue when we found soft spots. I have seen those kits on EBay and will conceder them in the future for total replacement. Thanks for the concern
