This couple purchased the travel trailer so that they could completely re-do it. It was pretty banged up as you could see (especially the inside). But just shows what you could do with something that already exists. Just takes time, patience, a little bit of money, and lots of labor.

They completely gutted it and rebuilt it from scratch and I think they did an amazing job. They even rented a garage just so they can do this. Read the complete and original story with even more photos here. It was later put up for sale as you can see here.
