Wait for it….my “AFTER” pics are ready to show you! Pop Up tent trailer remodel

I’m so freakin excited to share these pictures.  We have worked hard on our little project.  We have a busy life and because of that, we have had to put this project on hold many times.  Yes, there are still some things that we plan on changing, so stay tuned, but here are our after pictures of our Pop Up Tent trailer.

We found this 1996 Rockwood PUP on Craigslist a few months ago.  It had some water damage that needed repair.  Because of that, the owners listed it at only $500!  Yahoo!  I had been looking at PUPs for a while and I knew this was a great deal.  I made hubby drop EVERYTHING and rush down to buy it, before someone else snatched it up.  The people we bought it from were SO nice!  They showed us how to take it down and put it up.  They even helped us hitch it up to take it home.  I’ve dreamed of this for so long!  Driving home with it was surreal.

I had big plans for this little beauty.  I’ve been following www.thepopupprincess.com for a while and her website was my “go to” place for information and inspiration.  I showed pictures from her site to anyone who would let me!  Hubby worked on the damaged hatch section and I worked on Glamping it up.

Take  the tour!


Here are the before and after photos:

This is the seating area.  I recovered the cushions with a fabric that I LOVE!  The new floor was the one thing that made the most difference!

I made a video of how to cover the cushions on my YouTube channel.

We LOVE it!  We have camped in it twice so far and it’s super comfy!  These are my favorite colors.  I was going for a “spa” feeling.  I love the outdoors, very much.  But, I’m not much in to “roughing it”.  This is what I call “Glamping”.  Glamorous camping!

My hubby and I worked on this as a team.  He did all the hard parts and I got to do all the pretty parts.  He never ever said a word about it being “too girly”.  People ask me about that.  I had one guy roll his eyes at the idea.  The way I see it is this.  This trailer was my dream.  My hubby loves me and wants me to be happy.  I get to decorate my house and he supports that.  I wear girly clothes  and he LOVES that.  So, when it comes to the decor for the travel trailer, he’s cool with it.  He MAY want to buy one of his own and cover it with cammo….and I would be fine with that.  But, as for this, we are both super comfy in every way.

We are taking our camper out in a couple of weeks and I promise to post photos of it in actual use.

I have more “glamping” plans, so check back often, or better yet, subscribe for updates.  Just wait until you see my next plan for camping comfort….it will blow your mind!!

    Hi Stephanie, I first saw you on YouTube while on vacation in Maui talking about your pop up. You mentioned the pop up princess website so I checked it out and my brain started spinning. My wife and I bought a 2010 Flagstaff in December last year and took it out twice. I started fixing the exterior 1st as the decals were dried by sitting in the sun, so they were replaced. I had not thought about the interior until you turned me onto the pop up princess link. The painting and flooring are done. Bought the cushion material yesterday and based on your video on covering them will start next week. We live in the East Bay city of Concord and store my trailer at a storage yard with other rv’s. I just joined your mail list to receive updates.

    Hello- Great Youtube video on the cushions! The whole camper looks beautiful by the way! Question, in the video you said you had more details on sewing the cushions on your blog. Can you help me find this?

      Yes! I made 3 videos of what I did. You can see them here:

    Do your curtains have the small c-clips that slide along a plastic rail. We just bought a 1996 Flagstaff and are looking for ideas on how to replace the old dingy curtains.
