I’ve met a lot of wonderful people since I’ve been blogging here at The Pop Up Princess–like my friend, Cassie. Cassie is one of those people that instantly becomes your friend from the moment you start chatting, and I always love talking camper remodels with her. Cassie was my very first real reader feature, and I remember being so excited to share her first remodel with you all back in 2014. A few months later, Cassie sold her pop up camper in favor of a bigger model, and she gave that one a full makeover as well. Not long after that, Cassie got the itch to remodel once more. I remember thinking she was crazy when she bought her next camper and started pulling out the paint brushes and power tools again. I’m getting tired just thinking about it. 😉
This time, though, she went even bigger and traded her pop up camper for a hybrid travel trailer. If you aren’t familiar with hybrid campers, they are basically travel trailers with pop out bunkend beds. If you are looking for the convenience of a travel trailer and the feel of a pop up camper, they are the best of both worlds. Cassie worked her magic on her new little trailer, and I know you are going to want all the details. Without any further ado, here’s Cassie to tell you all about her latest project camper.
Cassie’s Hybrid Travel Trailer Makeover
Through Pinterest, I did a lot of research on camper remodels to find the best option for paint to use on the cupboards. I felt the primer and paint I used on the first two didn’t hold up the way I’d wanted it to, and really wanted to make sure I painted these with something that would resist chipping. I found a blog where the owner had used Nuvo Cupboard Paint on hers, so I decided to give it a try. I first bought the cupboard kit off Amazon, (Love 2-day Amazon Prime shipping! 😉 ) and this came with a paint brush, two quarts of paint, and a roller. Personally, if I did it again, I am not sure I would buy the kit. I wasn’t super impressed with the roller, and I would have rather used a Purdy paint brush.
I’ve included our final budget, so you can see just how inexpensively a remodel can be done. It didn’t take much money at all to totally transform our little camper. I’m so excited for all the trips we have planned, and we hope to camp in it as much as possible during the summer. 😀
