Yet another family has taken the plunge and made the choice to live in a RV and travel rather than be tethered to a traditional home. Mark and Julie bought a 1996 Winnebago Adventurer Motorhome with the intent of modifying it to better fit their needs. So before they could make the transition to their new home they had quite a few projects to complete.
List of the Renovations Completed on the 1996 Winnebago Adventurer
- Painted Wall with a gray paint
- Cabinets were repainted with platinum white
- Counters were refinished with Giani Countertop Paint
- Flooring removed and replaced with vinyl
- Removed hand rail near the front door
- Refinished the chair with fabric paint
- Replaced blinds
- Replaced the faucet fixture
- Installed butchers block to the stove
- Removed fabric panel above the door
- Added an Ikea sofa bed for the living room
- Updated the dinette
- Replaced the bathroom toilet
- Replaced the shower head
- Custom built 4 bunk beds in the former bedroom for their 4 kids
Thankfully Mark and Julie kept photo evidence of the before and after. Below you can see how some paint and elbow grease can transform a tired RV interior to like new.

The more popular it becomes to uproot and travel full time in a RV the more demand there will be for motorhome renovations like this. It turns out that Mike and Julie aren’t done quite yet, they intend on putting more work into their Winnebago on the road. If they have the patience and motivation for what they did here then who knows what else they may renovate. They have plans to make the kid room more useful for their children, do some bathroom improvements, and accessorize the interior.
