Well, Rachel, as hot as it is here, you should put a window a/c in that broken one and keep in on while working. LOL

Heading over to the blog now.

Here is one of the pictures from yesterday's demolition stint.  We took out the center console (which surprisingly we found used to house a sink and a stove until someone took them out), and we also removed the benches on the side where the banquette is (was.)  Its really quite roomy in there now!  Haha!  

Now that you can really see what the inside looks like, how do you think I should decorate it?

I really your help on this one!  I am 100% positive I don't want to keep it the brown paneling color because there are still some spots that look like water damage, but I'm not completely sure they are that we aren't planning on replacing.  We are only replacing the paneling that goes across the ceiling and the front/back.  The two sides will stay in tact.... Maybe white wash it?  Here is where I really some of your creative gals to help me out.  I appreciate it!

(PLANS FOR THE REPLACEMENT CABINET THAT WAS TORN OUT ... My original plan was to just replace it with a counter top, but I would really hate to see the water line go to waste..  Think I should put another sink back in there?  I'd like to tile and put a neat backsplash behind the camper (where that white spot in the picture is, on the left.)

It looks nice. I would go for suede (or fake suede) cushioned seats, maybe in red or brown

White washing or pickle stain would lighten it up, but I don't like those looks. If you are wanting to keep to the original style, leave the paneling and try to shine it up. If it was me. I would use Kilz primer that covers water stains, and then paint the inside a bright light color in a gloss. I like shiny stuff, though that is just me.

If you are planning on camping, definitely put a sink back in. They make very tiny ones and you can probably get those at aforementioned H4H on central.

Love the pics. I does look roomy. Smiley

You could try wainscoting.  It comes in full wall size, and that way it would hold up a little better by having another layer on the wall and it gives it a finished look.

I am not sure how practical it would be (or affordable) but a ceramic tile (or tile "look") would be neat.  And easy to wipe down!

Yes, they make some very good quality linoleum tiles peel and stick that look almost real, and they are much cheaper. H4H has tiles cheap in the back, but I think real tile, ceramic or porcelain would be very heavy, and might require more reinforcement.
