Our newest addition: the Hymer motorhome/camper!
After two years of traveling the world and being at home for 1.5 years, we have some news to share. We bought a vintage ;-) Hymer motorhome! We obviously can not sit still again in the Netherlands and it sometimes gives us the creeps. We went on a trip last spring to Denmark to taste a little of what is actually Scandinavia. Well, we liked it very much! The only downside was that it was very cold during the nights in our tent trailer. Anyways, the traveling bug is still here and we would love to see more of the countries around us.
In New Zealand we traveled for two months in a small campervan and that went very well. We met the best people with the most amazing vehicles. From small vans for a family of four to a large coach converted into a house. So inspiring and wonderful to see! There arose the jitters for a camper I think. It’s perfect to tour around in your own little home where ever and whenever you want.
So this is it, our newest addition to the family. Meet the one and only …. HYMER CAMPER/Motorhome. He has no name yet but I have no doubt that it will come soon. It’s a real old fry which fortunately is in good state but it also needs some uplifts regarding the interior. And that’s exactly what I like so much, refurbishing the interior. I have already checked on Pinterest to find inspiration images and also tips because we are not the first ones to refurbish a motorhome. In America there are a lot of people traveling with a camper that they have refurbished themselves. If you do good research, you find the best tips and inspiration!
As you can see the camper is quite dark and brown inside, it really comes at you and makes the interior much smaller than it actually is. So that’s point # 1: paint the interior. In addition, the curtains are really outdated and ugly of color, so point # 2: place new curtains or blinds. The pillows are also not very modern so I would also like to upholster them (if I can do it by myself…). So point #3! I could go on, but I think these are the first three points that I’m going to address.
Inspiration for the interior of the Hymer motorhome/camper
On Pinterest I found the cutest and nicest examples for refurbishing motorhome interiors. I already have a full board pinned with fun images and Pinterest now thinks I’m totally in to the campers, because my homepage is full with suggestions for motorhome interiors. (Pinterest is so good, so addictive!)
