HOW TO, MODS & DIY
Everyone loves it when a how-to, mod, DIY or makeover can enhance their RV lifestyle and no matter which type of RV you end up with, you’re likely to want or need to make a few changes to make it your own. Whether that’s improving the handling or performance of your RV, repurposing a space to make it work better for your needs or doing a complete RV makeover (as we did) to make it feel like home. The possibilities are endless and doing DIY jobs, mods and makeovers on your RV can be both rewarding and fun. We’ve shared some examples below of how we’ve improved our RVs to better accommodate our needs – inside and out – so have a browse. We hope you find some of them useful.
