I’m so excited to be sharing a new RV tour with you today!

Kate and Keegan currently travel full-time in their renovated 5th wheel camper, along with their two dogs, Oliver and Pippin.

RV Remodel filled with Scandinavian Coziness

Prior to becoming full-timers they were both self-employed and running separate businesses, but despite their success, something was missing. They were so busy and stressed with their careers that they had little time left over to spend with one another.

That’s when they decided to switch things up. They detached from the conventional path they were on to renovate an RV and roam the country instead.

They’ve been on the road roughly 4 months now and focus on educating and encouraging others to find freedom and flexibility in their work and life. And they do it all in the comfort of their tiny home on wheels. (You can read more about that over on their website!).

One of the perks of traveling in an RV is that you get to come back to your own cozy home, and I’m pretty sure anyone would be happy to come back to this 5th wheel!

Kate and Keegan have completely transformed their outdated camper into a space that is filled with Scandinavian coziness!

Let’s dive into the tour!

“Honestly, if we would have waited until the renovation was done and perfect — we would still be there, missing out on the awesome little adventures in store for us.

If travel is what you want, don’t wait y’all. Perfect floor trim or a beautiful renovation means nothing in the long run. I just wish we had done less to our build — we would have been out here a hell of a lot sooner.”

- Kate from Detach and Roam

Forest River Wildcat 28RK

Do you travel or are you stationary?

Travel

How would you describe your decorating style?

How much did you spend on the renovation?

$8,000

“This kitchen is small but mighty. We cook 90% of our meals here. We rebuilt the entire kitchen with a specific design for each inch of cabinetry of storage space accounted for. In this kitchen we can fit: a Vitamix, an air fryer, an Instant Pot, a full set of pots and pans, a large Cuinsinart Processor, a pull out trash bin, baking supplies, a set of Pyrex glass storage containers, and more utensils than we need. There is much more stored in this tiny kitchen — it’s all about good design and intention.”

What was most challenging about your renovation?

Because all of it was so new to us, we often found ourselves having to redo almost every single aspect of the reno at least 2-3x. It’s sometimes best to learn what is the best method for you or your rig after some trial and error.

What project made the most difference in the space?

The kitchen! We gutted about 80% of the kitchen and designed it for storage optimization.

What’s your favorite tiny home hack?

A kitchen that utilizes functionality & storage optimization. We are able to fit an obscene amount of appliances (Vitamix, food processor, air fryer, instant pot, full set of pots and pans… Just to name a few!) We even have a full sized pull out trash bin under the sink! Rebuilding the entire kitchen was the best thing we could have done for our tiny home transition.

Where’s your favorite place to shop for décor?

Etsy – finding handmade artisan pieces makes the small things feel special.

What’s your favorite way to hang decor?

Industrial Velcro

Do you have any future projects or changes planned for the interior?

No, we want to take the time to enjoy the work we’ve done 🙂

What piece of advice would you give people starting a camper renovation?

Give yourself a budget, then add 30-40% on top of that. The same goes for your renovation timeline. Time and money seem to slip away faster than you think!

What’s your favorite aspect of tiny living?

Gratitude. We feel beyond grateful for every square inch. We enjoy and appreciate every bit of space more than we ever have before. It’s so humbling to live tiny.

What’s your least favorite aspect of tiny living?

If it’s not perfectly clean and tidy, then it can feel cluttered and messy. Finding the livable in-between takes time. Hopefully, we can settle into a cleaning routine that makes the space feel constantly tidy, without cleaning all day.

What is something you’ve learned in general or about yourself since going tiny?

I “need” less than I always thought I did. It’s amazing just how much less you need; and it’s even more amazing to find that having less doesn’t mean being less happy or satisfied.

Most asked about Product Sources:

We get asked a lot where our flooring is from. It’s vinyl plank from home depot called Sante Fe maple. Our couch is from overstock!

(You can find more of their product sources over on their shop page!)

    How did you paint the existing wood cabinets you had in the BEDROOM and cabinets in hallway? What products did you use?
    Thanks

    I love looking at other peoples reno’s but I am always wondering what they do with stuff and furniture that isn’t secured down. Books,plants, furniture, SOFAS, chairs and stools all need to go somewhere during transit. We have a class A that we are renovating and I really hate spending and hour trying to put stuff away so we can go only to find out 5 minutes or less that I forgot something.

    Such a beautiful 5th wheel! Thanks for sharing! I’m curious to know if those window shades keep the light and heat out when it’s needed? We’re Trying to figure out what to do in our 5th wheel, thanks again!

    I notice you Have a lot of things that are not Bolted down and I’m wondering how you secure Them for travel? Table, bar stool, couch, end table, all the decorations on shelVes. We have a class a rv and it takes over an hour to put everything away and disconnect for travel…and all our furnishing are bolted down and we have no added decor! What’s your trick?
