In order to chase dreams and golf balls, photographer/business coach Brittany and her husband, Jordan, an aspiring golf pro, mobilized their lives to go on tour for half a year. Months of searching for a camper with enough space and height (Jordan is 6'5") for themselves and their pets led to this beauty of a camper. Though built in 2007, the house on wheels didn't exactly scream "this century."

As a full-time photographer, Brittany needed a lot of light to be able to do her editing on the road. In place of the outdated recliner, they installed a desk space for her in the brightest part of the camper. Pretty much every other inch of the camper got an update, too.

Brittany's advice for renovating a camper:

If you are thinking about renovating a camper, make sure you either have a ton of extra time or a lot of people willing to help you. It took way more time than I thought it would to get it ready. One of the biggest pains was painting. You wouldn't thinking painting such a small space would be so time consuming but there are so many cabinets and nooks a crannies. If we went back and did it again, I would have hired someone to paint. It would have made the rest of the process much more fun.
