30 Pics Of Old Ugly RVs Redesigned Into Beautiful Tiny Homes By “RV Fixer Upper”

Trina Sholin is a self-taught interior designer, and her husband Steve has a strong background in construction. The couple had been flipping houses to make a living but they started doing similar renovations on RVs on the side and in 2019, it became their full-time gig.

“Steve takes care of all of the maintenance and operations of the RVs, using his decade long experience with RVs, and I handle all design and social media as well as being hands-on during renovation,” Trina wrote on their website. “Basically, we both wear 17 hats as do so many small business owners!”

And they’re doing a hell of a job, too!

Wow, This is real talent.7ReplyView more comments

The couple started this journey when they were seasonal full-timers in Alaska for Steve’s job and were living in an RV themselves. “I couldn’t handle how drab, dark and unappealing the interiors were no matter the year or the brand. This got my wheels spinning as to how I could make the interior more aesthetically pleasing while maintaining function. We spent three years living in that RV and I couldn’t believe the difference it made and how much more it felt like a home after I completed the renovation.”

A few years later, they started living full-time in Arizona and wanted to get back into camping, so they bought a fifth wheel, a 2004 Keystone Montana. It was at this point that their love affair for Keystone Montanas began. “It was so ugly, but the layout was perfect and it was in great condition,” Trina said. “I could easily see the potential.”#2

Unless there is more to the room, I would rather have the “before” sofas to relax on than a bench.16ReplyView More Replies…View more comments

They began the renovation by ripping out everything “RV” and replacing it with things they would put in their home. “We put in a chandelier, real tile, and many other beautiful features and completely changed the look and feel of the trailer. People couldn’t believe the transformation!” Trina and Steve thought they might be on to something, so they put the renovated trailer up for sale.

“It sold immediately and the rest is history! We buy, renovate and sell RVs as well as offer consulting for clients that need help and guidance in renovating their own RV.”#3

Beautiful, but they lost a lot of storage space which is already at a premium in an RV.27ReplyView More Replies…View more comments#5

OK, there’s no way these RVs are ever intended to go on-road again. Table, loose objects, swinging light fixture… But nice manipulation of camera angle to make it look spacious.30ReplyView More Replies…View more comments#7

This is a nice shot, and changing to the whites and losing the dark colors really opens this up.11ReplyView More Replies…View more commentshttps://ddb2db06de6593ddecb855c779a35f80.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-37/html/container.html#9
