Updating an old motorcycle
If a unit is in really bad shape a few well chosen, cost-effective repairs may help bring it up to market value, but major renovations and especially upgrades will almost never deliver a good monetary payback.The main payback for updating an older RV is owner satisfaction.If the upholstery is getting worn, having it re-done will add years of use and enjoyment and perhaps improve resale appeal even if it adds little to the actual price.
That may be true, but there may still be valid reasons to update an older unit.But don't count on making a quick buck or even breaking even on most updates!Do count on enhancing the convenience and pleasure you get from using your RV.Sometimes it will be less expensive to update an older unit you have already paid for than to upgrade to a newer model.
Upgrades can be done in increments, as time and other resources are available, while upgrading to a newer unit usually requires a single, large expense or a commitment to years of additional payments.
Reupholstering the sofa and chairs will go a long way toward improving the interior appearance and extending its usable lifetime and visual appeal.
