Not every used mobile home will be in pristine, perfect working condition when you buy it. In fact, most used RVs or campers will have years of wear and tear affecting their interior and exterior parts. The truth is that it’s going to take some work on your part before you can call your RV or camper home sweet home. Here are a few things you can do to bring new life to your worn and weathered used mobile home.

Whoever owned the mobile home before you probably won’t share your sense of style or your preferences for color and pattern. There may also be rips, scratches, or cracks in the old paper that look bad and really show your mobile home’s age. Luckily, it’s easy to remove old wallpaper with a flathead screwdriver. You’ll just have to clean the residue it leaves behind with a sponge afterward. Mountain Modern Life has a good tutorial for how to remove and clean an old RV wallpaper. After this, there are some easy, eye-catching options for replacing the old wallpaper, such as peel and stick wallpaper.

Another way to revitalize your mobile home’s interior is to replace and reupholster the seat cushions. Your RV or camper’s cushions may have become lumpy, uneven, and uncomfortable from years of use. It’ll be harder to feel comfortable, relaxed, and carefree if your cushions don’t carry the feeling of home. To fix this, the first steps you’ll have to take are measuring your old cushions and getting some new foam to replace them. You can easily order replacement foam cushions from companies such as The Foam Factory. They can even cut the foam according to the exact measurements you need.

After you’ve replaced the old foam, you can add a little custom flair to your cushions as you reupholster them. You’ll have to choose and order a fabric pattern from a company such as Fabric.com. After you’ve picked the perfect one, you’ll have to wrap the fabric around the foam cushions and close the fabric through simple methods such as stapling or more complicated methods such as sewing the cover and adding a zipper. Just make sure you’ve recorded the exact measurements of everything, including your foam filling and your strips of fabric. When undertaking DIY projects like this, it’s important to be accurate and precise to save yourself time and frustration.

DIY renovations like this can be rewarding projects to undertake. Make sure you do lots of research, gather some helpful resources, and never give up even when the project gets challenging.
