Our 90’s RV
Hi, friends! I’ve been busy prepping our RV for her first big trip to Florida. While I should be focusing on the packing part… I couldn’t help but do a little more decorating. After all, she’s been in storage all Winter and I’ve had lots of time to think about all the things I want to do! I’ve made a few more updates to our 90’s RV and I have a BIG question for you, so keep reading.
Have you been following along with our renovation progress?

We Need Your Help!
Remember Gidget our vintage trailer? Gidget was our tiny, 50’s camper with teal accents. The name “Gidget” just seemed to fit perfectly!
Read more about why we chose the name here: Gidget the Vintage Trailer: We Chose a Name!
The name Gidget was perfect and we used the hashtag: #gidgetgoescamping so everyone could follow along on Instagram.
We’ve done a few other renovation projects since Gidget, but non of them have been as near and dear to our hearts… until now! I think we’re going to make a log of fun memories in our RV, and I want to name her something special!
What do you think?
What would you name our 90’s RV?
What hashtag would you use?
Help!!!! I need your ideas!
PIN-IT FOR LATER!
I love the faux Shiplap. Sadly the sharpie is out of stock on Amazon. But I can use any. Did you use a ruler for lines? A level? I did over the cab bunk with Shiplap wallpaper. But I will use this idea for dining area walls and jackknife wall. Who would have thought!! Can’t wait to start tonight.
Hi Csilla! I usually have used a ruler. level or long piece of wood!
Suggestions on how to hang things on the walls, doors or cabinets. I live in Iowa, so have varied weather temperatures and humidty.
Her name should be “Dolly”. She is classy and feminine
I know it’s been a few years and I’ll probably eventually find where you named the rv… but I think I would have gone with Fae (Fay). Love your rv work!!! Beautiful!! All that I’ve looked at!!
I think these are three names that would be good for your motorhome: Lizzie, Bridget or Gigi. #Gigionthemove
I also wanted to see where you got the rug in front of your couch. I love it and it would be perfect for my house. (I posted this same question earlier today, but wanted to add this so you didn’t have to reply twice). Ha!
Hi Laura! The rug is a Better Homes and Gardens rug from Walmart, but I could never find it online to share a link. You could try checking in-store, it was very affordable!
Are there any companies out there that will sell me a new shell of a Class C RV so I can finish the interior myself? I’m aware of the unique challenges (weight, movement stresses, shrinking and expanding) that carpentry for an RV will require. I could always buy a used Class C and re-do the inside, but it would be nice to have a brand new shell and brand new engine, transmission, etc.
Am I wishing for something that doesn’t exist?
That is a very interesting idea! I’ve never heard of this in regards to a Class C, only travel trailers. But you might be onto something :)
Can you tell me where you got the rug in front of your couch? I looked everywhere but didn’t see it listed on your pin. I love to read everything you post btw! Thanks!
I’d love to see pictures of the cab !!! :)
Sarah, where did you find the magazine racks? You did a beautiful job.
Love your site and this post… I am going to have to read more. Thoroughly intrigued! Thanks for all you are doing!
Where did you guys get that beautiful tile for your kitchen backsplash?
Jennifer L Click
I am pretty sure it is a peel and stick subway tile. There are several brands that make it and you can get them at Walmart, Lowe’s, Home Depot and Amazon.
Hello! Amazing job! You inspire me! Did you paint the exterior yourself? If so, what kind of paint do you recommend? Thank you!!Claudia
Hi – can you please source your bedroom blinds? Thanks in advance!
Hi Lori! Here you go :)
Absolutely love this reno. So inviting. And those “shiplap” walls? Genious.
What kind of paint do you use on the interior? Specifically for the walls which are like cardboard with contact paper on it, from the 70’s. LOL and do you strip your cabinets or just use a primer before you paint them. I have seen them once after repainting where the paint is peeling like cheap nail polish. I have been told the inside walls are treated with things that react to regular primers, not sure if that is always the case or just a fear tactic by some one with way too much 70’s wallpaper! LOL
Hi Jennifer! I JUST wrote a post that includes all my tips for painting the inside of an RV! https://www.allthingswithpurpose.com/how-to-paint-the-interior-walls-of-an-old-rv/
Just found your site awesome we have 1997 damon daybreak class a. But no closet except beside back bedroom
What do you suggest for getting a closet
