See how a couple renovated a Keystone Springdale Travel Trailer for their family of 5
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.

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

The master bedroom, turning the bed sideways like a daybed.

Rot repair in the master and bunkroom.
