Motorhome Renovations :: Re-Sheeting The Passenger Side of Our Motorhome

Posted by on October 20, 2012

Today David and I went flat out to attempt all the Re-Sheeting of  The Passenger Side of Our Motorhome.  And we nearly made it. Even with a very quick trip into Bunnings (yep I dropped everything I was doing to go to Bunnings!) we still managed to almost complete the job.

From Grinding out Riverts to drilling them out, to taking off the Old Sheets, sweeping out the dirt that was in the walls, to lining the walls with insulation.

    I came across your website / blog a couple of weeks ago and have been enjoying your facebook updates since. I think its great that you take the time to share your experiences. I have found it quite inspiring – especially when I hit a “low spot” in my bus project. By compaarison my coaster bus is a pretty simple job, althouh it started 4 months ago as a bus (with seats etc.) It has been used for tours up the coast of WA (we live in Perth) and is SO full of red dust you wouldn’t believe it.
    Anyway, congratulations on making a fantastic lifestyle decision, and on sticking to it!

      Hi Tracey,

      I have no idea how he can keep going with so little sleep – I am the biggest bear without enough sleep every night!

      He is so good with renovations, and so clever with solutions for making new parts for the Motorhome. Basically it will almost be a new bus when finished :)

    I have showed my hubby your posts, which I am certainly enjoy reading. I thought some of your experiences with the renovations might resonate with Rob especially as he is considering starting all over again. We are presently looking for a Hino Rainbow to do up. You can read about our search soon and eventually our work on one when we make a purchase.

      Hi Michelle,

      All the best with your new journey ~ hang in there no matter what! Sometimes I so could easily walk away from it all…and then other times I am so grateful for the experience.
      Your Hino will rock!
