Today on the podcast, we’re bringing Mandy Holesh back on the show to talk about their new RV remodel! If you haven’t listened to our original interview with Kevin and Mandy Holesh back on episode 1 (has it been that long?!), go check it out!
Kevin and Mandy are full-time RVers—Kev is an app developer and Mandy is a photographer and metalsmith.
They live with their four pets in a new toyhauler that they ripped to the studs and renovated with their own four hands. The pets didn’t even lift a paw to help…
In this episode, Mandy shares their experience with remodeling an RV, the design and renovation process, creating workspaces in the RV, making room for guests, and more! Plus, you’ll get to hear about the new collection from her jewelry brand Drift. Hear how Mandy has been able to scale her handmade business, even in the midst of a major RV renovation.

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!
