Getting excited!

Mother inlaw has finished reupholstering the dinette. She has the arm chair and curtains still.

We added-
a tv with built in DVD player. The RV didn't come set up for a tv.
Sheets and comforters
Changed the bath towel and toilet paper holders. Bought bath towels.
Attached a paper towel holder to the wall by the sink.
DH ordered a back up camera

We are looking for new faucets for the kitchen sink and bathroom sink.

Can't wait to show everyone the finish product later.

Looking forward to your end result. Hoping we will be doing the same in the spring. I love the fabric pattern. Where did you find it?

Found it from a seller on eBay. She only had 6 yards of it. I needed more then that but couldn't pass it up after looking thru thousands of fabrics on eBay and amazon that was the only fabric that had a true hidden Mickey that was on upholstery fabric and also large enough to see. We bought a brown fabric to compliment it for the sides of the furniture and putting the design fabric up front.

The picture shows the fabric more purple then it is. It is actually a bunch of different colors in a geometric pattern.

Congratulations! Your RV is gorgeous!

Love your upholstery fabric and can't wait to see some photos.

My first ever sewing project was upholstering our camper cushions. After I bought the fabric, I got a price estimate to have someone do them for me at $60 per cushion. Way out of my price range so I learned to sew. Much to my surprise, they came out beautifully and looked professional.

We no longer have that RV, but sure wish I did. After Christmas we will be shopping for another and, after reading this, I think I will check out Cruise America.

DH just dropped off the RV off at the local Trailorama place to have them install the rear camera and to add signal lights to the side of the RV. Making our vehicle more visible. We have the signals in the back and a set on the side mirrors but when we drove it home people still seemed to not see us blinking or just ignored it so we decided to add ones to the side of the RV so we are sure they see us blinking.

My mother inlaw started work on the armchair in the camper. It is funny cause she has a hard time seeing the hidden Mickey (not a disney fan like us) so I had to help her center it on the back of the chair. It's not just DH and I right? You all see it in the fabric right?

We also changed the bathroom door handle. Can you believe they had no lock on that door??
I know we're family but hey some privacy plz. LOL

I understand completely.

DH needs some place to read the newspaper in peace and quiet.

More updates.

The rear camera and signal lights on the side of the RV are now installed and working great!
The armchair has been finished with the hidden Mickey fabric. Mother inlaw had enough to do the whole chair and can even make me some pillows later.
She has some customer furniture to take care of now so she will start on the curtains once their work is completed.
We finally winterized the RV. Took 4 gallons of the stuff even with the water heater bypassed. Had just enough to get just a little thru with alot of air, but the lines are now clear.
DH changed the stereo in the RV so we now have a USB port and audio cable outlet so we can hook up IPod and other electronics to enjoy.
I bought some deep basket type corner shelves that have suction cups for the the shower from Walmart to put in the corner of the bathroom above the toilet to add more storage space. Took the suction cups off and are going to screw it into the corner.
Oh I also bought one of those hanging fabric shelf type shoe organizers for the closet. It had 10 shelves and cut it down to 4 so it fit in the cabinet closet so we can store socks and such without it having to be in a bin. Sewed the rest of the shelves so I could add a small hanger to hang it in the other closet for other items.

Can't wait for everything to be done so I can start taking picture and video so you all can see everything I'm talking about.

I like it. You got some great ideas. Think I'm going to borrow them, with your permission of course?

Need help thinking of an idea here.

My 2yr old knows how to open the car doors in the front of the rv and I am trying to think of a way to keep him from possibly doing that at night while we are sleeping.

I thought about those wireless door/window alarms but I would have to mount it on the outside of the door to work and it might get rained on then end up not working. Might mount it at top of door so it can get under the over hang.

Any other ideas that might work? I know he can't open the camper door as we have trouble getting that open when we put the deadbolt on.
