my wife Nicole and I have done extensive renovations to the interior of our 1998 Holiday Rambler Imperial. As fulltimers the objective was to make the interior more livable, reduce the overwhelming amount of wood and give the coach a more modern look. Fortunately our daughter is an interior designer and after agreeing on a budget amount ($15K) we proceeded with the following mods:
Improved the insulation where possible.
Removed the existing overhead TV and rearrange the existing space.
Removed existing window valances as well as all strung day&nite shades replaced them with new light grey cordless cellular shades.
Wallpapered the existing walls including a wood paneled wall in the bedroom as well as 2 walls accessing the bathroom.
Remove the carpeting in the living room and bedroom and replace it with a solid maple (stained grey) engineered floor including heating floor registers.
Stain the old grout between the kitchen and bathroom light grey tiles using a special acrylic compound (color matched to adjacent maple floor).
Removed all existing decorative12 volt light fixtures including overhang fixture over kitchen table and replaced them with home fixtures (I converted these110 volt units to 12 volts).
Removed mirrored backsplash in kitchen and applied ceramic tiles.
Installed a new modern kitchen tap.
Removed the heavy oak wood panels on the 4 door Norcold RIM 1200 and replaced them with much lighter black acrylic panels.
Removed the 3 seater villa couch and put in a new “home theater recliner with fold down armrest and storage below.
Removed the 2 seater Villa and installed a black smoked-glass entertainment console, stereo sound system and 40” flat screen TV.
Installed a new Xantrex RG7 console with auto-gen start on bedroom wall.
Still to be done;
Remove 13” built-in TV and install a 22”flatscreen with built-in DVD player.
