Five Easy Ways to Dress your RV Windows

five-inexpensive-rv-window-treatments

One of the biggest complaints about RV Interior Design is the window treatments. Between the bizarre shapes, the boxed valances, blinds that don’t work and the horrible upholstery fabrics used, it’s really a nightmare we almost all share. Ours were tiger-striped and reptile-textured, I kid you not. There are so many questions on how to […]

We Have A Hole in Our RV Roof!

Not a whole lot of things strike fear in the heart of an RV owner like having a hole in the roof. Adding one on purpose? Yeesh.

LED Replacement Vanity Light Bulbs

The bathroom vanity lights around the medicine cabinet in the bathroom of our 1998 Foretravel U320 are your typical 3-bulb vanity light – this set features a faceted half-round cover which defracts the light and, well…collects dust.

Like many families who travel, particularly traveling families in RVs, we keep a United States sticker map on board in order to visualize and memorialize our travels around the country. We try to make a bit of a ceremony when we add a new sticker, and we only add a new sticker after we’ve spent at […]

Replacing our RV Kitchen Faucet

It’s not a popular fixture finish these days – brass, bronze and gold finishes have been out of vogue for the past 20 years at least, with stainless steel, nickel, and even oil-rubbed bronze have been more popular. I admit, in our sticks and bricks home, we had stainless and brushed nickel throughout our kitchen […]

When we first found our 1998 Foretravel U320, there were many aspects to the design that we knew we wanted to change. We knew we had to get rid of the tiger-striped valances and the reptilian inspired window treatments in the kitchen and bathroom. We knew we’d need to add some color to spruce up […]

We’ve undertaken dozens of remodel and renovation projects on our 1998 Foretravel u320 4200 motorhome, but without a doubt, the single greatest bang for the buck has come from replacing the OEM halogen bulbs in the under cabinet lights with LED replacement bulbs.  If you are looking for a simple, easy upgrade that has both immediate and […]
