It’s an homage if you will to “Seinfeld” and “Elaine Benes” this week… “Are You Hinge Worthy?” Now don’t be fooled, yes flooring WILL be coming up down the line, but there is still a lot of painting to get done.

When I mapped out the overall plan for the “DIY/RV Renovations” I knew painting would take up a bulk of the reno, but quite frankly it’s taken up so much more than I had planned. I’m shooting everything and will share everything, so you all can see just what went into this whole bad boy.

This week though, you get a chance to see what I ended up deciding to do about all of the hinges and handles for the RV. I’ve been really concentrating on knocking out a lot of stuff in the back portion of the RV and that’s because by doing most of it there, I could learn from my mistakes as I moved forward in the rig. I also got a little “win” if you will, as I finished up one section of the rig. When you’re doing major renovations, little wins along the way help keep you motivated and on target.

Speaking of wins, I just want to say, “Thank you very much” to Liz Wilcox. Liz is an RVer, Blogger, Mom and really cool person. She just did an interview with me that was super cool and I want to take a moment to let you all know how much I appreciated it. Check it out if you get a chance and check out her YouTube page as well. She’s someone, if you’re into the RV Life you want to check in on.


Here’s a look at the overall budget for this week. In each episode I’m providing a detailed look of what I spent in the episode and the overall cost for everything.

I’ll also share links to various products, some of which you can find through my Amazon Affiliate link.
