Both of them are freelance technology talent in their respective specialties. This gives them flexibility and the flexible schedule it takes to really get into a RV renovation.
RV Remodel: Before
They work remotely while traveling which is becoming more and more popular these days. They run a very interesting blog showcasing their RV travels and photos. It is full of great travel adventures and photos.
The couple purchased the 1986 Toyota Dolphin off of an ad on craigslist with the intention of doing a RV remodel. As you can see from the photos it needed some serious love. They went to work on renovating their new RV only to realize it would be a larger undertaking than they expected. Their remodel was plagued with water damage, holes in the floor, roof leaks, and other issues that are typical in a 20+ year old RV.
RV Remodel: After
This 1986 Toyota Dolphin RV Remodel project had a series of updates made to it:
In the end it was all worth it as they departed on the trip of a life time seeing many of the sites that most travelers envy. This is a fine example of what some TLC can mean to an aging RV. You can certainly tell that the interior of this RV received the artist’s touch. Yet another great example of whats possible when you see that dated RV on the road side with a for sale sign on it. Seeing renovations that come out this clean is bound to inspire another. Are you working on one? Just thinking about it? Share in the comments below!
