Remodeling your RV can be a whole lot of fun and at some point a necessity. Whether you get tired of the way your RV looks or everything gets worn down because you are living it full time, RV renovation is required to keep your rig in the best possible state. Camper remodel will not just bring a new feel and life into your everyday life but also improve all the functionalities of the vehicle.  

Here are a few RV remodel tips that can help you improve your travel trailer, RV or fifth wheel.

RV Living Space

Repaint

Painting the interior can drastically change the appearance and feel of any house or area. This may make a huge difference in making your RV seem more roomy, snug, and clean.

White paint is frequently used to create a more open and airy impression, but a splash of color on an accent wall may also brighten up the place.

While this is a time-consuming process, there are alternatives to save money, such as using chalk paint that doesn’t need to be sanded. Otherwise, you can also hire a professional to make the task go more smoothly.

Furniture

Adding new furniture is a relatively easy choice that may significantly improve the space’s appearance.The furniture is one of the factors that makes many RVs look like they are in great shape. Futons are a nice alternative to sofas, and Ikea has a fantastic collection designed specifically for tiny areas. The cushions on the dinette bench may also be easily covered to improve the look of your entire space. Any furniture change you undertake will quickly transform your RV into a more customized and more beautiful setting.

Windows

Having the right windows on your camper vehicle is a feature that you must have because enjoying great views as you travel is a big part of the experience. Replace outdated windows with all-weather windows if you want to improve their appearance and make sure the windows you install are long-lasting, resistant to the elements, and tinted to block out sunlight. Any rain, sleet, hail, or snow should be kept out of the RV by caulking the windows. You can also hang some elegant window coverings to finish the renovation and keep your house from scorching throughout the day.

Floor

Another major thing you can remodel that really transforms a place is flooring. Although most RVs have carpeted floors, a floor with a wooden look may give the RV a much more contemporary appearance.

Although real hardwood flooring is attractive, they are sometimes too heavy for RV weight restrictions. An alternative is to lay down laminate flooring which resembles wood but costs a fraction of the price and weighs a fraction of the weight. The most common RV flooring alternatives are peel-and-stick and click-and-lock which are very easy to install and bring the cost of remodeling down since they are usually cheaper. 

Decorate

Don’t skip this easy step in redesigning the RV interiors. Sticker decals are convenient since they don’t fall off when you’re traveling. Also command strips/hooks and mounting putty can be used to hang lightweight photographs and wall art. You can also throw cushions and blankets to create a warm and inviting atmosphere.

RV Kitchen

Install A Backsplash

Backsplashes are quite simple to install and may significantly enhance the appearance of your bathroom or kitchen. It also prevents water damage to your interior walls. In a moving vehicle, traditional ceramic backsplashes are normally not suggested. 

Peel-and-stick tile backsplashes, on the other hand, are easy to install, affordable, and ideal for RVs. There are so many types to pick from, and they can instantly give a personal touch to your RV while also reducing stains. If you want to put yours near the stove, read the directions carefully and choose a heat-resistant backsplash.

Update Your Kitchen Appliances

Your RV kitchen is ideal for preparing food and since you’ll be spending some time in the kitchen you may want to upgrade it. To make your kitchen ready for cooking, cleaning, and storing food, replace appliances like the stoves, dishwasher, microwave, and refrigerator.

Repurposing leftover wood from previous RV remodeling projects may also be used to create a butcher block countertop. You can also add small layers of cement over current counters and  create concrete worktops. Another great option is to install granite or marble worktops for a more contemporary look in your camper van design.

Painting the worn-out cabinets can give them a new appearance for a low-cost kitchen renovation. You may even paint your kitchen cabinetry a vibrant color like a vivid green or slate blue if your RV has an eccentric character. If a simple paint job isn’t enough, remove the existing cabinets and replace them with bespoke cabinetry. This will not only make your RV’s inside seem cleaner, but it will also provide you extra concealed storage space in the kitchen.

RV Bathroom

Upgrade Your Toilet

When it comes to picking a camper van toilet, it’s best to choose one that fits your camping needs. Gravity flush toilets or portable camping toilets are the ideal toilets to put in your RV. Utilizing a composting toilet can help save water if you’re seeking an environmentally friendly choice.

Improve Your RV Sink

Purchase an RV sink that is designed to operate with your plumbing system. Sinks made of plastic, acrylic, or stainless steel are common choices for RV bathrooms. As long as the faucet is lightweight, it may be installed on your bathroom vanity. Your bathroom will seem brand new with finishing touches like a circular mirror and towel rack.

RV Bedroom

Get A Better Mattress

If you’re remodeling then maybe it’s time to change your RV mattress. There are a lot of great mattresses that are very comfortable and will provide you with quality sleep. Just make sure that you get the right sized mattress for your bed.
