Vintage Camper Skin Replacement

vintage camper skin replacementWe had big plans to paint Cecilia a while back.  Those plans were pushed into the future due to rain.  Looking back at my post 6 Mistakes We Made When Purchasing a Vintage Camper, I realize I should have added a 7th mistake.  This project would have went so much faster if we had a place to work indoors.  We were often in a race with the weather.

Cecilia Update: Textured Wallpaper
