Brad & Renee Lois
Renee and Brad of WiscoFlip are a husband and wife renovation team with backgrounds in interior design, construction and landscape. After living in an RV full-time while their house was under renovation, they discovered their love for RVing. Though they enjoyed living tiny, once their house was complete, they moved in, renovated their RV and sold it. During the pandemic they wanted a project to work on together at home so they purchased a fifth wheel and WiscoFlip, an RV renovation business, was born.
