2016 Springdale 212 Remodel

I took some time off from work and spent a week painting the entire interior of my rig to surprise my wife. Between prep prime and painting it was a monster of a job that took me more than 80 hours. But I'm so happy with the results, so does my wife.

Our plans for this winter include reupholstering the dinette cushions, updating the window valences to match the new color scheme (to include the fabric around the door and dinette) and adding some backsplash in the kitchen and bathroom.

Long term we want to rip out the dinette and replace it with a smaller eating area with a desk and bookshelf, or build a custom love seat with fold down table. We rarely entertain inside our home, and with just the two of us (and our pets) unless we're on the bed, we can't really sit together. Adding a custom loveseat would give us that option.

Outside the rig I have added a 2nd spare tire holder, a couple sewer hose holders, and upgraded from one 12v battery to a bank of four 6v golf cart batteries mounted in a metal box on the tongue. It's a lot of extra weight, but we love the extra hours of power, which are especially nice when running the furnace overnight on chilly Alaskan adventures.

Looks very nice! It is amazing what a couple gallons of paint and an iron will can accomplish. Personally I don't have the requisite patience to bring a painting project to successful conclusion.

You are going to really enjoy your space when you get your updates finished. My wife and I just yanked out our couch and dinette from our TT. Like you we wanted to create a more inviting space that we could sit in. It is a current work in progress and wont be done for a couple more weeks. So far we purchased an "antique" church pew to serve as back wall seating. It is just over six feet and I am building a folding table of sorts that will keep the space open when not in use. It is hard to explain but it is so much easier/relaxing living in the trailer without every nook and cranny filled. Good luck on your updates. Look forward to seeing the progress unfold.
