« Part 1: What not to do when buying a used RV :( Part 2 of My RV Renovation series no next part

Here’s a tell tale sign that moisture is doing a number in the walls of your newly purchased 5th wheel RV See how the awning bracket is pulling away from the siding? It was due to the water tank leaking for years and no one wanted to fix it. Here’s the result of the leak As you can see there isn’t anything holding up this back corner of the trailer, but the damage didn’t stop there. Here is the other side of the wall after I demoed the dinette

This was in addition to the leak I found in the bedroom which caused me to demo that area as well and that was the good corner of the bedroom :)

After demoing everything that needed attention I could see what was ahead of me and subesquently behind me at the same time :)

This will give you a pretty good idea of what I was up against for the renovation. The way I looked at it was an opportunity to configure the trailer to suit my family’s needs. More on that in my next installment. Stay tuned.

You are one brave individual. Keep us updated on the progress. Remodeling an RV is something that you do not see done every day. This will really be interesting.

Looking forward to seeing more on this.
