Camper Tour Featuring RV Fixer Upper

Trina and Steve both grew up in Alaska but moved to Phoenix 5 years ago. While they maintain a permanent residence, these two love adventure and make monthly camping trips.

They’ve been renovating, staging, and flipping homes for a while now but added RV flipping to their portfolio nearly 2 years ago, after transforming their own camper and falling in love with the process.
