"What is the best paint color for ceilings?"

That's sort of like asking, "What's the best tasting food?" Generally, in something like an Airstream trailer with a ceiling just 6'-7" high at the apogee, a light color will help curb claustrophobia. Mine is going to be some shade of white, with the color temperature tending toward blue. It's tempting to paint it sky blue in an attempt to make the ceiling seem to disappear, but I'm sure that the illusion wouldn't work in such close quarters.

Love your renovation. I agree with previous posts on keeping weight to a minimum. We have an adorable vintage camper that has murals painted all around the outside. It is a real head turner and we get all kinds of thumbs up and waves of admiration while traveling down the roads and in campgrounds. But we bought it after a friend did the inside reno. She paneled it with a lot of rough cedar siding with a cowboy theme. It is cute as can be but so heavy we get terrible gas mileage. I am afraid we will eventually just end up parking her and using her as a guest house (she already has been put into service this way several times) and finding another older camper to restore. This time doing everything possible to keep the weight down to a minimum. Just a week or so ago, Houzz featured another restored camper where she used cork penny tiles for her backsplashes. Vinyl flooring that looks like wood planks is a great choice as well. Just remember during your restoration how all that weight adds up. If you ever plan to pull it anywhere, you don't want a wall full of books or a bunch of heavy dishes and pots and pans. The few favorite books that Jordan kept wouldn't be a problem, but again... weight.

And remember that items shift in transit. We used to have a beautiful 39' RV with 3 slide outs but it was totaled in an Oklahoma hail storm about a year ago. One trip we must have hit a bump or something and our liquor cabinet door bumped open. A full bottle of Skye Vodka fell out onto our couch. Wouldn't have been a problem except a very heavy bottle of tequila tumbled out on top of it and broke the vodka bottle into a million shards as well as soaking the couch in vodka. It was not fun trying to ensure that all the minute fragments of glass were vacuumed out of the carpet and the couch cushions. And I was pretty high on vodka fumes as well! No going barefoot for a while in there.

Regarding living or camping in your boat, we have actually tossed around an idea of buying a smaller size vintage house boat (less than 30') and restoring it all nice and bright and fun. Then we can pull it wherever we want to camp, put it in the water, and we won't have to pay campsite fees! So we'd have our camper and boat all in one! And in response to the idea of just placing a boat in your yard for a fun decoration and play house, a friend of ours recently showed us a pic of his brother's back yard. They have a pool and have parked a boat beside it. They call it "the boat that don't float"! I found a pic but it's kinda blurry. I also attached a couple of our little camper.

Also didn't want pedestals, because I like the folding space. Small mechanic's rolling stool is godsend. If only they made them in blue!
@uniprokbs love the laundry from around the world pics! You should copyright and sell them!

Quite frankly the house looked great before, except for maybe the kitchen, and that was just a style glitch.

Beth Primm, that is scandalous. And what breaks my heart is that it is one of my favorite kitchens. Everytime I click on this ideabook, and see that gorgeous green, my heart sings and I sigh in envy.

Yea it was a great project-the cabinets are actually cherry so that great red color shows where the cabinets are distressed. I hope this is some sort of mistake on Cabinet Cures part but when I looked in here today and saw this I just had to say something.
