How to Renovate Motor-home Buses

Renovating your motorhome bus gives you the opportunity to remove items like stained carpeting and torn upholstery. It allows you to update the interior or customise your motorhome bus with the colours and styles you prefer. The result is a clean and refurbished vehicle at a fraction of the cost of a new one.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Tear up the existing floors. Use a utility knife to cut carpeting and carpet pads into manageable sizes. Remove staples from the floor with needle-nose pliers. Sweep and vacuum the area clean.

  2. 2

    Install new flooring. Choose from laminate wood, tile or industrial vinyl. Select flooring in natural tones and avoid carpet for easy maintenance.

  3. 3

    Remove the hardware on your cabinetry throughout the motorhome bus and sand it with high-grit sandpaper. Clean it with a tack cloth and give it a fresh coat of stain. Apply three coats of varnish to protect the wood. Attach new hardware in a silver finish.

  4. 4

    Paint the walls of your motorhome bus with a paint designed for the wall surface. If your motorhome bus has metal walls, use a paint product designed specifically for metal. If you have panels in your motorhome bus, use a traditional interior paint. Paint the walls a light colour to make the interior look airy and bright.

  5. 5

    Remove the cushions on your furniture and replace them with patio cushions. Hold the patio cushions in place with self-adhesive hook and loop tape.

  6. 6

    Put up new draperies. Choose valances in the same colours as your cushions and hang them so the bottom of the valance just reaches the top of the window to make the windows appear larger and allow the maximum amount of light into your motorhome bus. Use sheers under the valances for privacy.
