We’re finally ready to share our renovated RV tour! We’ve included both before and after footage because renovation videos are no fun without having an idea what the place looked like beforehand!
Renovated RV Tour: The Before
Our 2005 Winnebago started this journey as a well taken care of (albeit 12 year old) 30 ft Class A. The previous owners had taken great care of the vehicle and the inside was in as great of shape as you could hope for with a “vintage” RV that had over 40,000 miles on it.
When we first started shopping for a used RV to renovate, the most important thing to us was that the RV was mechanically sound. We were really flexible on the exact length, number of slides, accessories, and manufacturer. Since we knew we’d be ripping out most of the inside it’d be nice to be able to count on the engine and chassis being reliable. Whether that plan worked out is still up to debate.
The Winnebago Sightseer we ended up purchasing was really clean and the owners knew a lot about the all the mechanical ins and outs of the RV. While any older vehicle is likely to have some issues down the road, before turning over the Winnebago, the seller went ahead and finished fixing the generator before we picked it up. That left us only having to pay for new steer tires and a few small (ish) mechanical issues before we hit the road.
