Byrd said this RV stood out in her search because she could actually see herself living in it thanks to its comfy-yet-elegant look. “The designer made it into something spectacular,” she said.

When Terry started renovating RVs about a year ago, her goal was to make them feel like luxury homes with high-end materials. Her clients would agree that she’s done just that.
