Here are some of the things we’ve discovered while doing our trailer makeovers.

Primer for use on cabinets and walls: 

INSL-X STIX                                                    

All Surface Primer





Cabinet Paint:

Benjamin Moore ADVANCE

Cabinet Paint





Stick-on Vinyl Plank Flooring

Super-easy to cut and stick! Inexpensive and comes in a variety of colors and wood grains.

Upholstery & Fabric:

I like Jo-Ann Fabrics because they have great remnants and their home decor fabrics are almost always 50% off. I use plain muslin for curtains most of the time because it is a warm neutral and light filtering.  

I paid someone on craigslist to do the upholstery for our first trailer. On the second one, I carefully took apart the old upholstery and made notes as to how the pieces went together, and watched some YouTube videos on upholstering.  I also saved the old zippers from the long cushions and re-used them.
