It’s not uncommon to have a dream.
But for many that dream is just a distant hope that may never materialize.
So when we get the chance to witness a dream come to fruition, especially as it pertains to RV camping, it must be shared!
One of our readers and forum members who goes by “TravelingTeacher” recently showed off some of the work she and her husband had been doing in preparation for realizing their dream.
They had dreamed all their life about traveling across the country camping. They wanted to explore college campuses, historic sites, and NASCAR facilities along with countless other things.
The couple spent a lifetime – just as you probably do – working, saving, and planning.
After retiring they planned to set out on their journey. But only one thing was in their way.
They needed to get their outdated and water-damaged camper up to snuff.
The TravelingTeacher started by demolishing most of the interior.
The flooring, furniture, fixtures, portions of the walls, and portions of the subfloor were removed due to extensive water damage.
RV Demolition and Before Photos
It was a painstaking process to repair water damage, rebuild cabinets, paint, install new flooring, replace fixtures, and rebuild the floors and walls.
When it was all finished, they were ready to start their retirement the way they had always imagined.
The couple ended up with an interior that is as good as new.
Completed Trailer Renovation
The custom headboard and cabinetry in the bedroom, along with the unique dining table setup make it an interior all their own.
Should be great for touring the country don’t you think?
For their first trip the couple headed to a campground only 10 minutes away to give the renovated camper a test drive.
The Traveling Teacher is happy to report that all systems are a go and they are ready for launch!

It’s our sincere hope that this story gives you hope and inspiration to achieve your own dreams – whatever they may be. Happy camping!
