See how a white and gray interior transformed this remodeled 5th wheel!
Chenae and her husband, Isaac, purchased a 5th wheel last July and spent 8 months renovating it. What was once a boring, outdated, and very brown interior has been transformed into a simple, clean, tiny home filled with bright white paint and soft gray walls.
Isaac is in the military so while the location of their home may change from time to time, the bed they sleep in doesn’t.
One of my favorite aspects of this remodeled 5th wheel is how Chenae proves that living tiny doesn’t mean living without.
She’s created storage for not one, not two, but 3(!) sewing machines and utilizes every inch of their kitchen with her yummy sourdough recipes, and making natural products such as deoderant.
Their pup, Ollie, seems to have adjusted to #RVlife fairly easily as well…
This couple did an amazing job transforming their RV into a beautiful home on wheels, so let’s dive into the tour!
Remodeled Fifth Wheel with White and Gray Interior

2004 Fleetwood Prowler Regal
Do you travel or are you stationary?
What made you decide to go “tiny”?
To simplify and save money! Plus we wanted to experience the tiny living!
Why was it important for you to update the interior?
I wanted our trailer to be an extension of who we are so we wanted to remodel our trailer to fit our lifestyle and comfort.
How long did the renovation take?
8 months, working weekends
How much did it cost?
About $5000 (including furniture)
How would you describe your decorating style?
Very simple and clean.
Where you do draw your inspiration from?
@theflippingnomad, @rvfixerupper and other RVers on Instagram!

Target and Ikea
What was most challenging about your renovation?
Paint! It makes the biggest difference but also takes the longest.
What project made the most difference?
Probably replacing our water fixtures (the shower, and kitchen sink/faucet) and definitely paint!
What piece of advice would you give someone about to embark on a renovation?
Don’t give up, it will be worth it!
What’s your favorite aspect of tiny living?
Being happy living in a small space. We don’t need a huge house to find happiness!
What’s your least favorite aspect?
The convenience of it all. We didn’t have full hookups for awhile and couldn’t shower or do laundry in our trailer, we had to use the RV Park facility (which wasn’t always in great condition).

Our curtains are from ikea! I get asked that a lot.
