4. Goodbye Wallpaper
Once upon a time we think wallpaper looked really nice. Unfortunately, that time is long gone and some RVs haven’t received the memo. Don’t busy yourself scraping wallpaper off for days, just simply paint over it. You’ll be shocked at what a fresh coat of paint can do for a camper. If you don’t want to feel like you’ve been transported to a more groovy time, make sure you open the windows and doors while you paint. See tips and tricks for painting wallpaper.
