Making an investment in an RV is often a serious undertaking, which can lead some to purchase a used vehicle that works better with their personal finances. Those that have the capacity to afford these homes on wheels can come to realize that a few years have passed since their investment or the used model they now own is badly in need of RV renovations.
Regardless of which path has been taken, finding a trusted RV remodel center to handle such work affords the owner the ability to put their own personal stamp on this important facet of their life. Not all RV remodel services are alike, though they can often provide different areas of expertise that may not work in concert with your ultimate vision.
To get an idea of what type of RV remodel you might be seeking, listed below are eight ideas to consider:
1. Changes in Lighting
Nights or cloudy days spent in a recreation vehicle mean that lighting is an important feature for an RV. Your used vehicle may have fixtures that just don’t look right to you or you might want to seek an upgrade in the lighting itself. In the first case, a certain sense of ambiance can be felt when new fixtures are in place, while the latter situation might mean an investment in LED exterior and interior lighting is in order. Also, LED lighting is much more efficient, putting a lighter load on your RV’s electrical system.
2. New Flooring
Different approaches to this vital area of an RV can see some people express a preference for carpeting, while others like the look of wood or perhaps vinyl. Everyone’s tastes are different, but you might be tired of a look or you could seek to revamp a previous owner’s opinion. The floor is often the first thing visitors will see, so it pays to consider a fresh new look that can also serve as a more durable option.
3. Furniture and Decor Evolution
Styles will inevitably change, which means that your living area in the RV looks dated. That’s something that can change overnight by embarking on an RV remodel project in which new furniture is put in place or the visual experience inside is updated. Many furniture upgrades are available to update for functionality, comfort and aesthetics.
4. New or Larger Appliances
Appliances like a refrigerator or washing machine make an RV really feel like a home, but they can wear down or the need for something larger becomes evident. You may have a new addition to your family or the activities that you travel to or engage in may mean more frequent cleaning is necessary, concerns a larger appliance can address. Update a refrigerator, upgrade to a convection microwave oven or add a tankless hot water heater for an unlimited supply of hot water!
5. Adding an Additional A/C Unit
Especially in warmer climates, many RV’s do not have sufficient roof A/C to support a desirable environment. Many times, we can add and additional roof air conditioning unit to help cool your RV to a comfortable temperature on hot days.
6. Video and Technology Upgrades
Leaving home doesn’t mean your RV can’t serve as a comfort zone to stay entertained, with options like satellite or a big-screen television available. Given the proliferation of mobile phones and continual advancements in computers, RV renovations like adding WiFi or setting up a workstation for your PC or laptop can be in the mix. Also, updating and upgrading flat-screen TV’s and/or a satellite system can be a great say to enhancing your entertainment system. Wireless camera systems have also been a big hit in safely and effectively maneuvering your RV around the campground.
7. Suspension Enhancements
The sheer size of an RV means that it’s carrying plenty of weight, which can be taxing on the vehicle’s suspension system. Upgrades including anti-sway bars and steering stabilizers can be a great way to enhance the driving experience. For travel trailers and fifth wheels, upgraded suspension kits can allow more travel and allow smoother towing. Other things to consider are bearings, tires, brakes and axle alignment on your travel trailer or fifth-wheel. Keeping up with maintenance and considering possible upgrades will ensure safety and longevity of your RV.
8. Thinking About Solar Power
RV travels can take you to places that may not be the best for energy sources and keeping a cap on your energy costs is always important. By either installing a brand new solar power package or making an upgrade for the one you already have in place, you’ll never be at the mercy of the energy gods.
