A new floor has been laid, new kitchen built, new blinds and cushions purchased, and a full fit out installed throughout.

 

The kitchen has been upgraded with a new kitchen top, sink, tap, hot plate, kettle and coffee machine.

Re: Franklin caravan renovation

Congrats @Peggers, another amazing transformation. 

 

I'm sure our members will be inspired by your work. 

 

I should also link to your informative How to renovate a caravan series for those who want to renovate their own retro van.

Re: Franklin caravan renovation

@Peggers - I have to say that I’m loving these caravan restorations, and yours looks lovely. I’m also noticing a lot of older caravans in my local area. There’s a real oldie that’s been converted to a food van, and a couple of “mid-range” oldies that are obviously used as caravans.

 

Congrats on your Reno, it must be very satisfying, love the colours that you’ve used as well, cheers Deb

Re: Franklin caravan renovation

Hi @Flamingcupie,


Welcome to the Workshop community. Have you got a caravan that you are renovating? We'd love to see it!

 

Let me tag @Peggers for you so he is alerted to your question about what paint he used when restoring the van. 

 

You might also be interested in reading Rob's How to renovate a caravan series and his guide How to paint like a professional.

 

Please feel free to post anytime you need a hand with a project, or have something to share.

 

Thanks,

 

Jason
