Something big happened for us this month, we bought an RV! If you follow us on social media then chances are you already know this. We are so excited about our future plans to travel around the states to discover small towns, and decide where we will want to put down roots. You can read more about our Wanderlust story Here.

We have some awesome design ideas for the interior of our new {to us} RV and I can’t wait to share the details and journey with you. Despite the inside looking nice as-is, it certainly isn’t our taste so it will be fun to transform it into our modern-rustic motorhome.

We will also be starting up a video channel in the near future to give you more insight into our RV adventures and design ideas. I’d love to have you help me make some of the design decisions along the way, and will get more into that in a future post.

For now I’m going to share some before photos so that you can see what it looked like when we bought it, bedding, pillows, valences and all. Welcome to our 2008 Tiffin Allegro OpenRoad 32LA!

Update – You can watch the before tour video below:

It’s 34.5 feet long and here is the floor plan:

There is no oven, but it has a microwave/convection oven that should suffice.

There are 2 entrances into the bathroom – the hallway and in the bedroom. The shower is on the right side of this cabinet.

You can see into the other entrance of the bathroom in the photo below, along with some cabinets that are to the right of the shower.

There is a built-in armoire, more cabinets, and a small window across from the bed. Guess I forgot to take a photo of that. Woops.

Gotta love that bedding, eh? #joking

Well that’s it! We are over the moon excited about our new home on wheels and can’t wait to make it feel “ours”.

We originally thought we would have space in the driveway to store it while we worked on it, but it turns out our driveway is more sloped than we realized, and we didn’t feel comfortable leaving it there. So for now it’s in storage about 45 minutes away, but we did luck out and find a place that will allow us to work on it on-site, yay!

That’s it for the RV Tour, now we just need to come up with a name for this beast…

So what do you think of the RV Tour? We can’t wait to show you the progress we make and what it will look like AFTER the renovations.

  • How exciting! My husband and I talked about renting an RV to take the kids cross country and think it would be so cool to actually own one ourselves. I can’t wait to see what you do with the interior and I look forward to following along on your adventures!

  • Clearly this is going to be an awesome project but as for a name….RoVer. Bam.

  • Can’t wait to see what you do with the interior – my brother has one of these or similar – cos he has to ‘tow’ his, but to be quite honest – he doesn’t ‘tow’ – he has parked on a site in Spain – although he actually lives in the UK. But he uses it as his home in Spain. His is beautiful – so will look forward to ‘following’ you to see what you come up with. Have fun 🙂

    I’m really anxious to see what you do with the inside of your motorhome. We have a 5th wheel and even though it’s only 6 yrs. old it feels very dated inside. Looking forward to your take on making it your own style!!
    Enjoy your site…thanks Sheri

  • OMG this is a dream of mine. Congrats girl! I can’t wait to see how you put your own twist on the interior and I also am excited to see the adventures you take. New to your blog and loving it!

    “A” color will really look great and hide more “scuffs” as lowere cabinets usually tend to get more. Hope all 3 of you have a great time and make many wonderful memories!!!
