Do-It-Yourself Motorhomes or RVs

Did you know converting your very own vehicles with little cost can be possible with stripping down your old or current vehicles and renovating them to a motor home or recreational vehicle? For so many people, buying a new recreational vehicle is a dream come true because the price tags hat go with each kind of RV is just way too high, high enough to make you fall flat in the face out of disappointment.

Buying A New Recreational Vehicle: Is It Worth It?

Imagine spending around $70,000 to $125,000 for either a purely motor home or a mixture of a small trailer with a truck to do the pulling. Of course, buying a second-hand RV is not a wise thing to do as there are the unknown possibilities of breakdowns which is a No-No for RV travelers. Picture how it will be like to be traveling to an unfamiliar place only for your RV to break down. That would be the most disappointing thing a recreational vehicle can ever do to a traveler.

  • a toothpick to get into the small nooks and crannies.
  • a standard margarine container with water in it – that’s just regular water. I prefer warm water because it comes off the paint a lot easier and there’s less chance of you scratching the car.
  • a specialist cleaner (only use these under certain circumstances). I would never ever wash the car with this stuff, so do not get this mixed up with the water. That could be very, very bad so only use this if there’s a a factory defect, a little dark mark on the paint it will take that off for example, but definitely be very careful because in most cases it will damage plastic.
  • Car wax. That’s right the same stuff you use on your real car – I prefer Turtle Wax Carnuba Car wax that I use on my own car, and it also works on models to get off that manufacturing film that you get on some cars especially some of the higher end ones
