I remodeled our 1999 Jayco in two weekends. The original colors were cream with blues and burgundy. I started by purchasing a new sofa (a sofa that fit through my RV door and was an easy install)!
Before After (New Sofa)!

Once I put in the new sofa I decided to recover the cornices and make new curtains.
You can see the original ones in the Before picture above.
New covered cornices and curtains
The cornice fabric has cream, brown and a touch of the blue
Next I recovered the bench seats in the same fabric as the cornices. (I actually had someone else cover the bench seats because I hate working with zippers)!
(The bumper parts were covered in a brown fabric with specs of beige and blue)
As you can see, the difference is like night and day!
The bedroom area was next!
I purchased a beige maltase coverlet, brown sham and made the little throw pillow out of
left over fabric from the cornices and curtains. The cornices in the bedroom are a different
pattern than the main area, I didn’t want them all to be the same. The bedroom cornice fabric has the same colors as the main area so it all works well together well.
I removed the accordian shower door, it just made it seem like I had less interior shower space and replaced it with a shower curtain. The shower curtain has the same colors as the rest of the camper and just made it useable as well as look much better. Put in a brown rug in front
of the sink and a hand towel in brown and blue. I also hung a basket over the toliet to store extra toilet tissue and hand towels.
The kitchen cornice was recovered in a solid brown fabric with specs of beige and blue (same as the bumper areas on the bench seats). I decided not to hand curtains in that kitchen window. I added some cute dish towels and area rug in front of the sink as well as in front of the sofa. That was it!
The next project is to remove the rug from the main living area and replace it with a nice
wood type vinyl. (This is something my husband is NOT looking forward to) I will most likely leave the rug on the slide out and in the bedroom area.
With a little imagination and some time you can update your RV TOO!
