It’s always been a dream of mine to travel cross-country in an RV. Maybe it’s all those years watching National Lampoon’s Family Vacation as a kid, but the idea of being on the open road (while still having some of the comforts of home) seems so liberating and exciting. So when I heard from Lacy Young that she and her husband Cliff sold everything they owned to move into an RV and travel, I was all ears.
Last May, Lacy and Cliff sold or donated almost all of their belongings and bought a used 1994 Safari Continental. Excited to make some changes and get on the road, they started looking into things and discovered they had a mold problem that required a total gut rehab. Lacy explained, “It has been, and continues to be, a BIG adventure and I’m convinced that adventure really means advanced troubleshooting!” These two have done an amazing job of transforming this space into a warm, welcoming home in just a few months. I love all the personal details (Lacy used different knobs for each room’s cabinets to differentiate the space) and the way they maximized space by adding storage under their seating. Lacy and Cliff are on the road as we speak (somewhere in the mountains of California) and I hope I can run into them on the road one day and see this great makeover in person. Read on (and check out their Instagram page!) to hear about how they tackled each area — and the mold. xo, grace
