Finishing Our Pop Up Camper Renovation

Sunday, January 29, 2017

When we bought our pop up camper, the floors had been redone by the previous owner and looked fine.  However, we were looking for a way to finish the camper floor and make sure they remained durable and clean.  I searched around online and found Instatrim.

InstaTrim Flexible Trim Solution is a simple and cost effective trimming solution for pop up campers and RV's.  This mold and mildew resistant product is perfect to use with camping gear.  It is flexible and self adhesive.  Therefore it fits easily and simply into tight spaces.  Also, this is the perfect product for someone finishing a project that may not have a lot of tools handy.  In short, it is perfect for something with limited handyman skills.

We needed a clean space and sharp blade for cutting.  No need for saws and additional tools.  This product is a plus because it is a hybrid of small moulding and caulk.  Caulk is messy and never finishes neatly for me.  And I don't have saws and tools for installing a wood product.

Instatrim installs simply by measuring, cutting, peeling the self adhesive back off and sticking.  That is it!  The finished results are outstanding.  I really like how this completes our project!  By sealing the edging between the floor and cabinet with the Instatrim, dirt and grime won't get trapped in the crack between the two.

It is important to start out with a nice clean surface free from debris.  It was recommended to clean the surface with a degreaser prior to installing.  Or, clean with a soft cloth and rubbing alcohol.  I chose the latter.  Super simple.  Aside from this prep, nothing else was necessary.

The Instatrim is sold in 10 foot rolls and comes in a variety of colors.  White, light brown and ivory are typical color choices.  These three would work with nearly any decor.

The floors looked nice but unfinished around the edges.

The Instatrim is flexible and comes with a self adhesive backing that just peels and sticks to a clean surface.

I was able to go around the floor and finish out our pop up camper in about 30 minutes!  I couldn't believe how quickly it went.  The big thing is to get the trim pressed tightly into the space working in small sections at a time.

It is important to make sure that it lays flat and doesn't get bent underneath itself.  Just straighten and keep working.  
Once it is all in, everything looks completely professional!

See how nicely this seals the edges around the flooring!
This product could easily be added to a new remodel or existing camper to finish the look.  It was such a simple step that made me a lot happier with the overall look.  This will be much easier to keep clean!  This project took two 10 foot rolls.  For less than $50, this upgrade is completely worth it and in reach for any DIY enthusiast.

Finally, this is a great company.  Instatrim works with Operation Honor to seal flag cases built by veterans for our country's heroes.  Instatrim is made in the America and supports our American military through this project.  Check out Operation Honor or Cornerflex, the makers of Instatrim, to learn more about the Operation Honor project or other products Cornerflex makes.

Instatrim could be used at home as well.  This is a product that can be used behind sinks, around commodes and other areas in the home to seal and protect against water damage.  The flexibility of the product make it easy to mould into tight spaces.

We are almost completely done with our Pop Up Remodel or Peggy Sue, as I have named our camper.  It has been a labor of love.  But, these little pieces of quick work that make everything neat and tidy.  It makes me smile at the end of the day!  I'll be doing a total reveal next week.  Be sure to check it out.  I can't wait to show the finished project after nearly a month of work!  Ask questions if you have them about this product or other ones I have used.  I'm happy to answer them for you!
