In The Workshop

Project Winnebago – almost ready!

by ARC on February 23, 2015

In the workshop today – here are some more snaps of the Winnebago which is almost ready to go to it’s new home as a location vehicle for a film director.

Here you can see the American icon is now looking rather rustic and romany, with copper worktops and fittings in the kitchen, a Belfast sink, plus a copper shower. Everything is panelled with wood – floors, walls and ceilings – and the shower room has a porthole window. This RV is also fitted a wood-burner and large leather sofas that pull out into beds.

Outside it is no longer off-white, but a fab shade of British Racing Green.
