Now that summer is behind us and it’s time to pack up the Sprite, I thought I would give a breakdown of the final costs of our camper renovation to anyone interested in knowing what a vintage camper might set them back.
We found ours on kijiji this past December which I think was the perfect time to buy it since no one else seemed to be in the market for one. So, I would definitely suggest looking for one when it’s out of season to get the best deal.
We purchased the camper for only $1,300 and we estimate that we put an additional $800 into the renovation/makeover. A breakdown of the estimated costs are below along with a link to some of the projects from past posts:
Interior paint/primer: $40
Dining table/counter makeover (faux marble adhesive paper) $4
Vinyl flooring $54
Handmade curtains $20
New cushions $200 (instead of reupholstering we found summer bench cushions that fit perfectly)
Cupboard hardware/trim $100
Adhesive tile $20
Exterior paint/caulking/sand paper $200
Due to a set back we had this summer with our vehicle ( and by set back I mean it finally died and we spent nearly a month looking for a new one) we were unable to take it on as many trips as we would have liked but there’s always next summer! :)
