RV RENOVATION – 2 months of work in 7 min – TRIPPED RV EP 3



this is our first camp spot it's next to my parents old house in Florida this is where we're gonna work on the RV the next two months we really locked up we have electric and water here and some very patient neighbors but it's really nice today is January 1st 2018 we begin the new adventure today we started taking off the cabinets to paint them white as you do when you're a millennial in a car we're just starting it looks like a tremendous amount of work man I wish we hadn't ripped the couch and died not out of here already but we already started we made a mark and now begins countless hours of do my favorite thing which is painting we're here at Donna's garage workshop and it's kind of like we bought a Groupon for how to do this Pinterest project and we're getting the candidates rated paint now that the primers dry we're putting our first coat Oh No now that the primer is dry we're putting on our first coat of paint and aunt Donna says nope Boogie's so I'm just trying to make sure there's no movies see this is Anne we just had a donna in here which just I don't know the elusive and Donna we can't get her on camera she she runs away at night but we're so lucky to have her because we brought her over here just to like get some insight on like how to treat the walls and how to prime them and this feels gross we're going in we're painting the walls of the RV today we have now again taken everything that we own out of the RV so that doesn't get dusty and dirty and paint covered so we're super motivated today because it's a Sunday and some noodles have work and it's finally like 75 degrees in Florida and here we go [Applause] [Applause] the painting always looks more fun on camera because it's usually edited with a fun montage or something it's just really time-consuming but I really like painting it's just kind of relaxing to be over here I feel like I'm the kid paint-by-numbers and Tim is adding the finesse just like rolling this around and he doesn't trust me to be careful with the lines hey today I'm painting the kitchen and guess what color we're painting it because we're painting the cabinets black not because we're creative geniuses but because basically we saw the mountain Modern Life did it and it looks gorgeous this is what you want to see this is what you want to see oh my Oh zebra oh let's leave it Oh No now let's oh oh I hate it you guys are we doing your kitchen like how are you doing it black oh my god that's amazing these are exciting times most of the painting is done not all of the painting though gotta let it dry plenty but we can finally start taking stuff like this microwave it's been sitting here stuffing toes for the past two weeks anyway should wipe off that dust on the top it's good it's seasoned I've already told Allison but I'm never painting anything again in my life I'm just in the most positive way ever I'm done with painting thanks it actually kind of does doesn't it and then here are the lower cabinets here is two coats of black paint and it's looking good the camera how we can't pick up oh yeah you can see a little bit just how it's like you need a little bit meaning one more coat always one more coat always one more we're excited about the black come with me into the rescues oh this looks nice on camera um here is the second layer of tsunami Wow I say Elson earlier if she wanted me to record her during this paint she said no cuz I'm gonna get too stressed cuz it's gonna be very messy so cuz you're doing paint today's episode brought to you by milk got milk on your countertops oh my gosh it's this huge brush and like we've just given ourselves an arbitrary deadline so there's not a rush but the rush is that we're ready to leave tomorrow morning and this just in we just removed the bolts from the slide out and now we'd finally put in the sofa that we've been carrying around for four months Tim just hung this really cool butcher block for our cutting board and Tim's been like doing like sewing and I've been working out a thank-you gift because we've been like hanging at this Paris for two months and that's important to you game just like blowing and blow out so today's the day can you believe it we cannot and it's so nice because all of our friends in the neighbourhood here have been helping us and coming over to say goodbye and it's kind of emotional because we've had quite a journey here with everybody we got a really beautiful piece of art from our neighbor that we've been parked next to and just all the help from Tim's family that we have gotten like just I mean everything the caulking the cabinets the painting the curtains that just so thank you guys for everything it was certainly a group effort to get to this point and we are just so excited we don't know anything about our being we've only slept in the RV like four nights so there's gonna be quite a learning curve we are certainly not the experts I just remember when we first got to Germany on the last trip we couldn't pay for the taxi we didn't have local currency the credit card didn't work in the taxi we had like go to two different banks to try to just like pay him so that all happen you know within like the first few hours of the first leg of the journey so who knows what is about to happen we embarked on trips – no tripped RV

    We just bought a popup camper. Not the same, but i'm looking for some inspiration and motivation to renovate our popup. It's an old one and in wonderful shape. But super dated. Would love to see a full tour of your RV. Just subscribed!! You guys seem like a lot of fun??

    Yes! "We saw it on Mountain Modern Life and it looked gorgeous!" I saw their kitchen and those were my thoughts exactly, as we're getting ready to reno our RV. Y'all did a great job! 🙂

    This was prob posted a while ago, but my boyfriend and I are planning to rv full time. We are going to buy one next month. However, we plan on changing a few things like you guys did. I saw you put in a new couch. Can you recommend where you got yours?

    You two are so funny…Finn, putting on her glove saying 'We're going In'….instantly reminded me of when I was a child, following my brother down to a farm with horses. There happened to be a vet there, with a BIG glove on, and he was 'Going In' to turn the wee one from the pregnant mare! He was up to his armpit of course…and as a child you wonder 'what the heck is wrong with that horse!' Anyway….all that work to the motorhome, and now it's gone….but you left us all with some wonderful memories Tim/Allison!

    The results look fantastic! I would like to see more about what you did to renovate – it seems like you only focused on painting but must have done much more than painting if it took 2 months!
