RV Remodel

Kevin and Mandy wanted to buy a trailer that was only a shell, but when they couldn’t get one, they found the perfect toyhauler trailer that could be stripped down and started from scratch. This gave them the opportunity to really craft their own space, including workspaces for both of them and plenty of room for the pets! Living in the RV during the renovation has certainly been an adventure (and a long time living without a shower in the RV). Along the way, they are creating a truly unique space and learning a lot about RV renovations through trial and error!
