Today’s feature comes from Tara and Michael (also known as @ourtribeof5ive), who recently transformed a 2005 Keystone Springdale into their vacation home on wheels.

Their RV, affectionately named Clark, is full of stylish DIY projects, including the real tile they installed in their kitchen and the countertops they painted after a few stain mishaps. However, I especially love the slat wall in the living room. Their renovation is only 90% complete (hence the “unfinished” slat wall), which shows some of the best design details are unplanned or happen by accident.

Not only is this camper inspiring, but this family proves you don’t have to wait until your camper is 100% renovated to get out and enjoy it!

Hard to say..

Tell us a little about yourself, and who you RV with.

We are a family of five who went from flipping our house, to flipping our camper! My husband is very handy with being around construction his whole life, and designing spaces has been a fun hobby for me over the years.

What inspired you to experience #RVlife?

Our friends @gnarlyzarleys gave us the push to travel when they bought their skoolie.

“We were forced into painting our countertop after 27 fails of staining/polying/sanding/crying. Best mistake ever because I freakin LOVE how it looks! $17 + a few foam rollers later and we have this beauty.”

Tara of @ourtribeof5ive

What piece of advice would you give someone about to embark on an RV remodel?

You can easily be overwhelmed once you start ripping things apart! Take it easy, and work room by room instead of bouncing around.

What do you love most about your RV?

How spacious it is, especially the bunkroom!
