Tour this RV Renovated for a Family of 4 : 1997 Newmar Mountain Aire
Caiti and Jake are an adventure-seeking couple that decided to sell their home, buy an RV, and travel with their 2 small children, but first, a renovation was in order.
Today we’re taking a peek inside their 37-foot motorhome, and how they transformed it for a family of four.
One of my favorite projects they completed is a custom sofa built for the kid’s car seats so they can be buckled in when driving down the road. Not only that, but the sofa holds storage AND can be transformed into a desk area!
It’s a brilliant idea so be sure to check out their “Tiny Living” stories on Instagram to see how it works!
