    I got a lot of advice on here when we were looking and buying...then spent several weeks remodeling and didn't have time to check in. And of course, now summer is in full swing!! We've been on 3 trips so far, all good. Having some issues getting it down, but DH seems to have a handle on the problem. We are heading to the beach next weekend (Edisto)....I am not all that excited. I am not a fan of sand everywhere :wink:

    So here are the before and afters (wishing I had gotten better before):
    -cabinets taken out and completely repainted
    -dinette replaced with sofa
    -flip down kitchen completely removed
    -new sheet vinyl floors (over linoleum)
    -walls painted
    -curtains removed and replaced with tension rods
    -counters covered with contact paper
    -t-molding replaced
    -lots of cleaning and scrubbing
    -cushions covered (wrap and staple method)
    -I think that's it

    Everyone thought I was crazy for putting this much work into it, but I LOVE it.

    Looks great! The beach is a great place to camp! It's where at least 80% of our trips are to. Since we live in Florida, we have sand regardless where we camp, anyway.

    I was confused looking at your photos, I had to go back and look at the list of things you did. It looks like one counter top you may have cut back or replaced?

    Yes! I forgot that part. Since we completely took out the flip-down counter/kitchen/sink, we replaced that countertop because it was full of holes (from the sink plumbing) and it's overhang was more than necessary. Just used 3/4 inch mdf and covered with contact paper.

    I like removing the kitchen area for a long couch. I might look into that next year.

    I can't lose our sink, but these pics are definitely making me think about another area in our camper.

    Great job, It looks really really goodDH needs to take you out to dinner for all that work :) Edisto is a nice place, I used to go there frequently when stationed in Charleston years ago.
    take a couple of mats to wipe feet before entering the PUP, maybe a hose outside to wash the sand off. Good Luck and Enjoy the fruits of your labor

    Emily - I hope you're still following this thread. I'm a total newbie, planning to buy a 99 Redwood and I love what you did with the dinette/now sofa. Can you explain how you did it? Did you reuse the dinette cushions? The dinette bases? Did you need to cut anything down to make it fit in side by side rather than facing?

    I never liked the dinette in a camper, and it's just me and the dog. The sofa looks great and opens up the floor space so much!!

    I'm not the OP but it looks like they just turned the dinette bases along the wall.

    I love how open it looks with the dinette gone!
